I'm HTML!

Well, according to this i'm HTML (wich i think is pretty darn close).

What file extension are you?


You are .html You are versatile and improving, but you do have your limits. When you work with amateurs it can get quite ugly.
Which File Extension are You?


Framework.Messaging & WS-ReliableMessaging

Well, i'm currently working on Venezuela, participating in the implementation of the solution we have been working for more that two years. This isn't our first implementation so everything went very smooth for us, so smooth that we are going to take a mini-vacations to Isla Margarita for two days!

Regarding our new messaging subsystem, all pieces are falling into place very nicely. Rodolfo is conducting all kinds of functional testing and some perfomance (not quite yet) and despite the fact that a few bugs were found all is working better than we expected, so we are happy so far.

I'm returning to Buenos Aires (where i live) next week, and then we are going to start some stress, perfomance, scalability and stability testing (wich i hope to last two weeks more) and then we will ready to go.

Retina.NET approaching ALPHA 3

Hi to everybody!

I'm very glad to announce that the ALPHA 3 milestone for Retina.NET (my own free, open source OR/M library for .NET) is near to completion. Code is closed and i'm finishing details in the installer package and some other cosmetic issues.

This new version includes more bugs fixed, ASP.NET support, better config files support, more samples and documentation are included as well. I want to specially point that this version includes a modified version of the IbuySpy Sample Portal (from Microsoft) ported to use Retina.NET as data access component, so this application gains inmediate support for every database supported by Retina.NET (at the moment they are: MS Access, MS SQL, Oracle, MySql and PostgreSql).

I want to point also that the Alejandria Project (a library management software made by Carlos Peix from the Microsoft Users Group Argentina) is advancing very steady and maybe a release is not far away. i want to thank Carlos for his support and patience hunting down some Retina.NET bugs.

Best regards,
