Cruisin' around the Windows 2003 site and found a few tools for moving to the new platform. This is one of the cooler ones I saw and should help me with a few sites I've got running. Here is the whole list.
This Page has a very complete guide on tweaking Windows Server 2003 into excactly what you want it to be.
Very nice! Thanks to for this link.
but the best part of this article was the link to install Plus! for WinXP on Windows Server 2003.
This thing is pretty cool. It's got
plugin support too, so you can create little extensions to it. It says that it
only supports XP, but I haven't got around to testing it on Windows Server
2003. This looks like it would be pretty cool to put on a
server. [.NET Weblogs ]
Yeah Coolmon is good but IMHO
Samurize is much
Borland has detailed the new name for Sidewinder, C# Builder for the Microsoft .Net Framework. uggh. I'll still call it Sidewinder since that is a cooler name.

Anyone seen this site myRSS.Com? It looks like it's of the same vein as newsisfree.com, taking content from websites and then creating RSS Feeds.
From thier site:
myRSS enables anyone to build custom RSS channels for virtually any news site they desire. myRSS requires no programming experience, is completely automated and all channels are available for free.
But I don't have a damn copy of VS.Net 2003. And along with that I can't experiment with the Office stuff either since that requires VS.Net 2003 too. ARRGHH!!
Okay.. I'm better now.
This would be a little bit different when working with checkboxes, you would need to loop through the items and see if they are selected, but you get the idea.
And let me state that it was not FUN and I'm sure that there is a better way then what I did below. I have a special circumstance, where the client wanted a new window to open when they clicked on the submit button. So I decided to loop through the grid get the ones that were checked and store them in Session along with the final count of how many were checked. These would later be re-read in the resulting page. I really REALLY hate what I did here and plan on going back to try and find a better way.. so if anyone has any hints :)
Private Sub btnAddWatch_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs) Handles btnAddWatch.Click
Dim OrthoG As DataGrid
Dim DGitem As DataGridItem
Dim Counter As Integer
OrthoG = CType(Page.FindControl("DemoGrid"), DataGrid)
OrthoG = Nothing
If Not OrthoG Is Nothing Then
Counter = 0
For Each DGitem In OrthoG.Items
If DGitem.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Or DGitem.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem Then
Dim ck = CType(DGitem.FindControl("ProductChk"), CheckBox)
If Not ck Is Nothing Then
If ck.Checked Then
Session("Ortho" + Counter.ToString()) = DGitem.Cells(1).Text
Counter = Counter + 1
Session("OrthoCount") = Counter
It could just be me, but does anyone get the sneaking suspicion that sites may start putting ads in thier feeds? I was talking to a friend about this today and I don't think it would be impossible. What can I say, it's been a weird morning..
I know that this is waaaayyy off topic, but it's just too funny not to share. Click Here
