Just got to mention Google Reader. This is the panacea of RSS readers that I've been looking for. I've previously used RSS Bandit which I thought was excellent, but even though you could do some synchronisation with it's files, it wasn't very portable. Google reader lets you upload your OPML file with your feeds to it, and it just does a generally excellent ......

I found this article, very interesting:

Makes a lot of sense to me, may be of particular interest to anyone that is hiring at the moment.



Recommend that anyone who needs a UML tool checks this out http://www.staruml.com/ This is a most excellent free tool that supports UML 2, various approches, code generation, reverse engineering, Gang of Four design patterns and document generation to name but a few features. I also find that the GUI allows you to create diagrams a lot quicker than ......

Just thought I would quickly post about a neat wee piece of kit. I got a T-Mobile MDA Pro WM5 mobile phone. The network just released a patch to enable the exchange email push on it. I discovered www.mail2web.com do a free service that allows you to have an exchange account to which you can forward email and, this in turn allows you to use activesync ......

Have been bought out by MicroSoft, and have taken the key staff with them too.

Does this mean future rootkits and other vulns will be covered up?


Under no circumstances use the provider "SleekHost". Their service is terrible, regular downtime, rotten support, poor performance. I thought I would warn everyone that reads this just in case they ever look at them.

Just been messing around trying to integrate nDoc with VS 2003. I've got it so that I can compile using the external tools, but unfortuantly I can seem to make this as slick as I would like. I've added the console with the following: Title : NDoc Compile Command: C:\Software\OpenSource\ndoc... Arguments: -project=$(SolutionDir)Solu... ......

Please, help? Do I really need to buy VSTS to get integrated unit testing? I've got an MSDN subscription which I thought was kind of universal but it seems I dont get any of team system. Now, I wasn't particuarly bothered with a lot of the stuff but I dont get the integrated unit testing in the pro edition. I guess this means that I am going to be sticking ......

Hi, don't know how many of you have found the wonders of podcasts as yet. I'm quite into them, as a good podcast can make the walk to work a better use of time than it would be listening to the latest Green Day album. As yet the podcast scene is in its infancy but there are several good resources out there. The best one I have found is delivered by ......

All, Just to let you know that Scott Colestock has released new versions of many of his very useful tools.

Someone I know gets a notable mention with the log4net stuff too ;)


I'd like to take a moment to blog about the excellent work Scott Colestock is doing with regards to BizTalk supplemental tools I've been working with both his Nant deployment script and his implementation of Log4net. Both are absolutly must haves for the BizTalk developer. If you haven't checked this stuff out then I sincerely hope that you do. Your ......

Just been working on getting a BizTalk adapter to install using windows installer. I used the adpater wizard to create the adapter, which kindly provides a nice .reg file to handle the registry stuff. This is nice and easy to use in conjunction with the registry editor function of the setup project in VS.NET. What I also wanted to do was add in support ......
