Recently, there was an interesting exchange on the ALT.NET Yahoo group regarding a real fundamental issue regarding the OSS world and their relationship with Microsoft. Phil Haack noted the exchange between Oren Eini, aka Ayende, and Brad Wilson which is a great post. For those that are lazy, what all happened? Brad: If you're simply angry because we had the audacity to make our own object factory with DI, then I can't help you; the fact that P&P did ObjectBuilder does not invalidate any other ...
My name is Chris and I spend most of my days for my employer working on a myriad of projects and systems in the criminal justice arena. I work mainly in .NET (VB to be specific) but I am no longer afraid of things like C# and Java. Somewhere along the line I told someone I knew something about XML too. Most of my days are split between being a "product/project leader" for one of our mobile solutions and also as the interfaces guy. I get to spend a lot of my interface guy time lecturing about SOA, ...
Judging by my limited experiences with Vista the "security" sounds like it might be a case of how much security you need to turn off until your Server actually communicates with the other devices and runs the Applications correctly? Other than that I'm looking forward to seeing just how much can be accomplished with Power Shell, it's certainly got my Brother excited ;-) 10 things to consider when making a Windows Server 2008 upgrade decision Windows Server 2008 is expected to officially launch in ...
I love these white papers from "How Microsoft Does IT." Obviously these guys are very skilled and knowledgeable when it comes to deploying their own technology. The insight you get is invaluable and really comes in to play when designing your own installations. From the web site: Ever wondered how a large enterprise plans and implements design and architecture of its next generation of messaging system? View this content to find out how engineers from the Microsoft IT messaging team will uncover ...
To celebrate the release of the iPhone in the UK today, I got a new Nokia N95. Why? Well I have read some shocking reviews of the iPhone from people in the US and many have returned the phone. Also, in my opinion the N95 looks to be a better phone. There is of course the ridiculous cost of an iPhone here in the UK it's £269 which you in the US that keep track of the exchange rate will know its nearly $550. Then there's the available tariffs...£35 a month with only 200mins...what a joke, I get 400mins, ...
Following the lead of Tech·Ed Barcelona, Tech·Ed U.S. 2008 will also be expanded into a "split event". For the first time, Tech·Ed U.S. is evolving from a one week conference to two separate back-to-back conferences: Tech·Ed U.S. 2008 Developers, June 3-6, and Tech·Ed U.S. 2008 IT Professionals, June 10-13, in Orlando, FL. Each event is priced separately, but there will be special package pricing for those that want to attend both events. The format is intended to provide the same experience but ...
Microsoft TechNet Magazine has released another excellent architectural diagram for one of Microsoft's "back office" systems. This time Exchange 2007 is up to bat and this diagram has all the under the covers goods like Client Access, Edge, Transports and Clustering. Download this bad boy and head on over to your local large format printer (or Kinkos). Previous versions have also come enclosed in the latest issue of TechNet Magazine. As of the last issue this one hasnt shown yet, but perhaps it will ...
I've been busy, but obviously not blogging. My last blog entry was May 2006! Since then I've: Continued to lead the Enterprise Integration Practice at twentysix New York (http://www.26ny.com/index.... - we've built up a team of BizTalk talent that is second to none. We have 7 certified BizTalk consultants: Jeff Bolton and Joe Tsai were from the farm team; Seong-moh Yang, Alex Star, Shashi Raina, and Juan Suero were brought in as free agents. And I am the player/coach. Seriously, it's great working ...
Well this is going to be interesting - a windows version is around the corner? well to be honest I kind of like the Linux GUI anyway, but what will be crucial to this device is that it doesn't sacrifice speed or battery life for a fancy Vista like GUI. I have always been a fan of Laptops and Notebooks being mobile devices, as opposed to Desktop replacements, so my personal bias has always been for a maximum screen size of 12" - besides have you ever been sitting by someone in an aircraft when they ...
I've been experimenting with the Server Core version of Windows Server 2008 for a project I'm working on. You may be aware that Win2K8 ships with this great new streamlined "Server Core" mode that you can select during setup. Installation is lightining-fast, just 10 minutes on my Core 2 Duo machine. (And that's including the 2 reboots, hardware detection, and everything!) You end up with only a very minimal set of GUI tools, including notepad and regedit. The thing is lean and mean, and can run very ...
Michael Neel has an entry again today, this one using ASP.NET Ajax Extensions to get the data into Silverlight 1.0 apps, plus I've added a tag for books in Silverlight cream because there are 3 available now, and more coming! From SilverlightCream.com: Using Web Services with SilverLight 1.0 After an email exchange yesterday with Michael Neel about his Simple flickr photo viewer, he decided to go one better than respond to me, he put up an article about it... cool :) Stay in the 'Light!

*Moved to: Experts Exchange Hell - The slowest site in the world.I know a couple of people who have been complaining that Experts Exchange was getting rather slow, and I had noticed the same. So I thought I would investigate how big the pages really are. The first test is to save the page "Complete List of Zone Areas.mht" and see how big/ or small it is...Well my jaw hit the floor and here is why:Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...

I've noticed a disturbing trend recently in all aspects of industries: restaurants, retail, and other service based industries: a lack of high customer service standards. My recent experience with Best Buy is a glaring example... It all started with a phone call yesterday morning. I was happily told that my 360 was DOA and that I would be receiving a new one. The guy on the phone said I needed to bring "all the cables" in since I'd be getting a new one. Being the pro-active person I am, I wanted ...
The company I work for up to this point seemed mortally afraid of getting me training. I'm really not sure why. If I were looking to leave, I'd have left by now. I've been contacted several times by other companies in the area. But when the branch's VMWare guy left, it seemed to force their hand, and now I'm being sent to VMWare training, and soon I will be a VMWare Certified Professional. However, during that time, I was trying to decide where I want to go in my career, and since my employer didn't ...
Welcome to the cold shower? Still, it will be very interesting how this space shapes up? Deeper look at VMWare's results spooks investors Posted by: Aaron Pressman on September 18 When software hotshot and EMC (Symbol: EMC) spin-off VMWare (VMW) went public last month at $29, demand from investors was feverish and the shares shot up 76% on their first day of trading. Since then, they’ve gained even more, peaking at $82.75 in intraday trading last week. VMWare’s final IPO filing with the Securities ...
This is the Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT), also known as the Army's $70Million+ Training Facility. I like to call it an expensive video game (and it needs an update)! It is used for combat training, but we modify it for use for convoy tracking. In these pictures you will see the facility with big white boxes. Those are pods (or vehicle simulators). Inside the pods that you will see are what it looks like in the actual vehicles! What I believe I have included is both the Bradley (M2A2) and ...

Hope this will help ohters Moto owners.

With the new Exchange 2007 SP1 microsoft now releases a way to lock down windows Mobile devices. See the snapshot below for what you can do with the new SP. I can now tell customers to not drill the camera lenses on windows mobile devices and to stop worrying about Bluetooth. I am not able to test these functions at the moment , and am wondering if it will also work for older windows mobile devices like 2003se and mobile 5. As soon as i have details on this i will update my blog These functions are ...
It has been a while since I last posted, but I haven't stopped working :) I am currently on a project involving WPF and WCF. While I am not a big fan of WPF, but I quite like WCF. During the development of our project we run into a very annoying problem with WCF. After some help from Microsoft, we found a solution at last. The problem is very easy to describe. On the one side, we have a WCF service running. On the other side, we have a client with a reference with to this service. Now and then, we ...
Azam Sharp approaches silverlight via Blend; Steve Marx has a cool new SL Video player at channel 9; Rob Conery is hilarious discussing LINQ explorations; Laurence Morony expounds on XAML; Mike Taulty has a good article on Blend and SL; and Jesse Liberty and Shadowman exchange comments about SL versions via their respective blogs. Hello Silverlight! Azam Sharp jumps in on an intro to Silverlight, and as with many spends the majority of time in Blend2. Cool new ASP.NET 3.5 and Silverlight demo application ...
Been awhile since I last posted, and I apologize for that. I hope to keep it more updated. The Blackberry install went pretty well as far as I could help it. The actual installation of the product went fine. I made sure I was prepared, had the install files downloaded, read up on the procedure, documented how I was gonna go about it. Couple of things I'd like to share just to help people who might have to do it. 1. Read the manual carefully! It explains all you need to do for permissions to Exchange, ...

So not only has Justice's little "Become a better developer in 6 months" garnered him the attention of Scott H., but he's now featured in one of the MSDN Canada podcasts (which you can get all the links from via Justice's site here). I thought I'd listen and offer my thoughts on the witty banter and intellectual exchange between John Bristowe and Justice Gray. Let's begin... I can picture Justice lying in bed, listening to John speak his intro over and over and over... "Oh yes John, tell me how wonderful ...
Hello, Welcome to my blog. I'll be discussing a lot of various things here, mostly on the technical side of things, but I'll occasionally visit some other topics, such as music, politics, or anything else that might engage my attention and fuel the fire to blog. Brief background about myself. I am a Senior Network Engineer at a large Microsoft Solutions Provider, and I specialize in Active Directory, Exchange, and ISA mainly. My past work experience includes supporting Exchange at Microsoft Premier ...
Hell is other people, and Dev.Hell is no exception. While I feel secure in saying that most of the unnecessary strife faced by development comes from immature practices and corporate short-sightedness, there are plenty of problems that come from those of us who live down in the code; demons or damned souls both. Let's start with what developers are not: Developers are not lazy. Devs love technology, they love code, they love working... because working is playing. When devs become discontent it is ...
This is of particular interest to me as I'm keeping an eye out on the Server Core as it gets more airplay - I'm hoping to have some very neat ideas about how this can be used? Virtualization listed in the Windows 2008 Component Posters WSS, Virtualization July 18th, 2007 Microsoft just released the 2x two “Lonhorn Component Posters” from the July TechNet Magazine (thanks to Keith Combs for the heads up). Anyway, you can download both the Windows Server 2008 Component Posters from Microsoft Downloads, ...
Having inherited some rather strange Group Policies on our Windows Server 2003 server, we wished we could just go back to the default policies. We figured out how to do it but it is not recommended unless you have no choice. After trying to get some permissions corrected and finding them so messed up, we decided it was less of a problem to blow them away then continuing to deal with what we had been in the past. Please use this with caution and a full understanding of what it will do to your domain! ...
I just found out that I passed the beta for 70-238 (Pro: Deploying Messaging Solutions with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007). I had previously passed the beta for 70-237 (Pro: Designing Messaging Solutions with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007). Unfortunately, as detailed here, I did not pass 70-236 (TS:Configuring Exchange Server 2007) and I did not get a chance to take it in beta due to some scheduling conflicts. I don't think there is any sub-designation for passing just the IT Pro tests but not ...
I have started for some time now an Exchange working group on the Microsoft\Culminis community site Aggreg8. It now has a decent amount of traffic and conversation with lots of questions posted that many in the Exchange community may find helpful. You may also be able to share your experience with others. Please stop by and take a look. I can also give out some invitations if they are needed. Leave a comment. Update: Okay, so while traffic spiked I had been remiss in looking at post dates - nothing ...

When you build a distributed enterprise system many flavors message exchange are available to meet the needs of different communication patterns. In this session I will discuss a variety of messaging patterns and how they satisfy different deployment and communication requirements for your services.

So for those of you who have one, or are interested in how this is progressing it might be worth while checking out http://hackint0sh.org/forum but it's quite clear that Apple's blaze of Hype and Publicity could be bringing with some rather unwanted attention? ;-)) Files in iPhone reveal overseas plans for T-Mobile, Vodafone Posted Jul 4th 2007 3:09PM by Ryan Block Filed under: Cellphones That iPhone firmware leaked this week? Well, as found on the iPhone Dev Wiki it's been cracked open, its files ...
As part of the extended Williams family vacation, I took 8 people (including myself) to Carowinds (a theme park owned by Paramount, I believe.) on Monday. If you know me, you probably also know I wouldn't be writing about it unless something went wrong. The weather cooperated nicely. It had rained all morning and stopped right around the time we got there. As a result, it was fairly cool (high 70s) and breezy. No complaints there. So we get to the entrance gate, coupons in hand, and pay everyone's ...
I've been spelunking Powershell lately with Bruce Payette's excellent book, Powershell in Action, and thought I would take a step back from some of the lower level nuances, such as dynamic type conversion and parameter binding rules, and organize my thoughts at a higher level. What is Powershell? - It is the new command line/scripting environment from Microsoft that replaces cmd.exe and WSH. You can install it as a small, free OS update on Windows XP, Windows 2003, and Vista as long as you have the ...
Is this why Apple has been keen to keep the device out of reviewers hands until lthe Hype Cycle has completed the selling frenzy? Will Unusable Keyboard Fuel Apple iPhone Backlash? June 30, 2007 [General] | By Tadd Rosenfeld. Yes. The inner technology junkie in me was in prime form yesterday when at 6:00PM eastern standard time, when the normal Tadd would have been enjoying a Friday evening off, I found myself instead tapping my arm for a vein at the local Apple store. I was joined there by perhaps ...
I don't think I am violating the multi-paged pre-exam NDA by offering this tip after sitting for 70-236 this morning: know they powershell syntax and commandlets. Easily 75%+ of my test involved trying to choose which syntax I should use to perform a configuration related task in Exchange 2007. I have heard there was some powershell on the exam. I even looked over the "skills being measured." This is the only item among 20 or so: "Implement bulk management of mail-enabled objects." Hmmm. I was not ...
Microsoft has released rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2007. You can download it here. This rollup also contains all the fixes from rollups 1 and 2. It is also rumored to also contain a fix that allows for IMAP connectivity to the soon forthcoming Apple iPhone. Other fixes include: • 931328 (http://support.microsoft.c...

This is nice to know, even if you aren't going to buy it straight away because of all the potential issues? there has been a lot of reporte issues surrounding battery life (not unlike some of the issues with the iPods?) and I'm sure it's not goiing to be an easy start for the iPhone - but at least it would mean that you aren't disconnected if you decided to buy one of these? With the amount of convergence currently in the electonic consumer market it would be unwise to place people in a position ...
Microsoft unified communication bridges the gap between telephony and computing to deliver real-time, messaging, voice and conferencing to the desktop environment. Microsoft unified communications technologies tear down the walls that separate tele-communications and computing. And they do it with software that leverages your existing telecommunications infrastructure. Microsoft unified communications technologies are more than just VoIP. They break down all the traditional communications silos. ...
We have overhauled the server to support the endpoints in the config file. Let's do the same for the Client. We can then start playing with various config file settings. Just to preserve the samples, I am going to copy the client code to a new app, and modify the new one. Let's call it WCFConsoleClientCfg. Step 1. Delete the interface file we had in the previous client. We are going to use a tool to recreate it. Or at least it's equivalent. Step 2. go to project->add new and pick a application ...
During an email exchange with someone trying to work from my Tutorials I realized a couple things, neither of which can be dealt with prior to very late tonight, and very possibly tomorrow night. HTML Source I included the HTML source in the first tutorial, but have not done that in the others. The 'assumption' is that the HTML is identical, with only the xaml changing, but you know what they say about assumptions :) So, I will include the complete HTML on the Tutorial pages as well. Sys.Silverlight.createObjectEx ...
I like the idea of the Apple iPhone, I think that anything that pushes innovation in this market space is great. However the HTC Touch P3450 (Elf) is serious competition for the iPhone mainly because of the interface. This video from BBC demonstrates the HTC Touch's user interface. You can order the device today if you wish. Sadly the iPhone is not yet available to purchase in the UK yet but there is massive interest. Of course the device is a Smartphone running Windows Mobile 6 which means connecting ...
Microsoft has another great podcast up around the messaging design that went in to its Exchange 2007 environment. And please Microsoft, let me download the entire podcast so I can listen to it offline. IMO that is a requirement to be a podcast. Streaming sucks. From the download page: Ever wondered how a large enterprise plans and implements design and architecture of its next generation of messaging system? View this content to find out how engineers from the Microsoft IT messaging team will uncover ...
One nice feature of the Outlook thick client is to view other user's calendars. In OWA 2003 it was a different URL that was needed, as along as you had the permissions. Now with Exchange 2007 OWA the URL is different. Below is the syntax - all on one line: https://<server>/owa/... replace <server> and <user@yoourdomain> with your host and User's email address as required ...
Carbon neutral practices and Carbon Offsets are big in the news these days. The AP carried a story over the weekend: Do Trees Make it OK to drive an SUV?. This morning I saw a news story that tallied up a business traveler's personal carbon footprint. What the heck is all this talk about carbon footprints and carbon neutral living? Basically the idea is that everything we do - from flying in a plane, driving a car, to what we buy, is using energy which contributes to the greenhouse gas emissions ...
<disclosure>I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for reviewing it.</disclosure> First, I thought that this book would have been a more advanced book, but was sad to see it labeled 'Beginner-Intermediate.' It does however accomadate that audience very well. The book does a good job of taking a sample and slowly building it up to a more complex level. In the future I would love to see this topic at a more advanced level as well, and maybe not so hardware oriented (is that ...
I have had this brought up by some co-workers and wondered if anyone from MS would like to officially comment? When Outlook 2003 was released there was the potential for un-patched Exchange 5.5 information stores to get corrupted or experience problems and dismount. Is Outlook 2007 officially (as in written somewhere - not just anecdotally) supported against a mailbox on an Exchange 2003 SP2 server? Comments welcomed. Update: I finally found, buried here, this: Connectivity to Microsoft Exchange ...
I gave a talk yesterday on using MOSS 2007 as an Application Delivery Platform. My contention is that delivering application functionality to your users is essentially the same thing as Enterprise Content Management (ECM). Think about it...ECM is all about delivering the right information at the right time to the right people. If you simply exchange the word 'information' in the sentence above with 'functionality' you get my point. If you work in the enterprise space you know the demands of a diverse ...
As of SP2, Exchange 2003 was supported in production in a Microsoft virtual environment. Now that Exchange 2007 requires 64 bits to be supported in production and Microsoft does not have a virtualization platform that supports a 64 bit guest, Exchange 2007 is not supported in production in a virtual environment. From the Microsoft document Technical Architecture of Exchange 2007: Exchange 2007 and Virtualization Exchange 2007 is not supported in production in a virtual environment; however, as stated ...
