Error | EventType clr20r3
As errors go I found this one is pretty horrific. I got the error deploying a windows service written in .net 3.5 from my Vista x86 dev rig, to a 2003 x86 server. Only having the .NET runtime installed on the server I wrapped the service up in a deployment project. The service installed fine, however when trying to start the service I got a "The service did not respond in a timely manner" error. Initially, like you would, I thought there was probably an error with my code in the OnStart method, but ......

First time overclocking
I have just built a new PC, nothing super special, but pretty nifty.

If you are using windows vista on a domain you may find you are unable to get windows updates. When added to a domain Vista adds a registry key (a policy) to look for a WSUS server. I don't know the ins and outs of it but I presume that if that server isn't dishing out Vista updates it fails. So anyway the key to delete is... HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software... there is a subkey called AU; delete that as well! Restart windows and set the update going and all should ......

Windows Vista - My thoughts so far.....
I have had Vista installed for about a month and although I haven’t specifically spent time to find out exactly what’s new I have developed likes and dislikes. I think somewhere on GWB I saw a post along the lines of “What’s all the fuss about?”, I don’t agree with that; from what I have seen at the Vista Developer launch and .net 3 the world of development is getting better in the Vista era! Especially from a UI perspective. So anyway my likes and dislikes (please post yours; I would like to see ......

Vista Installed :)
After downloading Vista Enterprise from MSDN and finally got round to installing it!!! And wow!! It's really is pretty! a total joy to use.

I have had a couple of problems installing it with a few things not working straight away I had to search around for some drivers and my printer software wont install but the drivers are OK. My PC has a rank of 4.0 on the "Vista Scale" out of (apparently) 5.9(?) see more here; next ......
