Keeping Blog Ads In Check

I credit Google AdSense for really opening up the possibility for small blogs to become sources of passive income. Look around the web and you’ll see nearly every blog sport an AdSense ad or two…or three. For most people, it amounts to a bit of pocket change - maybe enough money for a coffee or an occasional indulgence. But soon, the lure of adding more ads from other ad networks overwhelms publishers and soon blogs start to look more like the movie Idiocracy . A while back, Jeff Atwood wrote about how content is becoming dwarfed by advertisements in his post, A World of Endless Advertisements , which is where I took that photo. I was heading down that path when I read his post and it gave me pause. At that time, I had recently started a new...

How to Programmatically tell if an IIS AppPool is 32-bit or 64-bit

I've blogged before about 32-bit vs. 64-bit .NET under IIS and how different Framework-bitnesses need different Application Pools (AppPools). Someone asked how you find out what AppPools are on a machine and how do you find out which ones are 32-bit? There's a number of ways, depending on your needs: If you're running a batch file or command-line script and IIS7, you might use the standard IIS7 appcmd.exe tools. You'll need to be Administrator, of course, as we're talking about Web Server configuration here. To list all AppPools: c:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\appcmd list apppool APPPOOL "Joe" (MgdVersion:v2.0,MgdMode:Integrated,state:Started) APPPOOL "Sally" (MgdVersion:v1.1,MgdMode:Classic,state:Started...
