Through use of the first prototype time machine, I took a picture
of my future self.
So I was doing some random searching for Whidbey stuff and oddly enough google linked me to this site: http://www.billgatesisdead.com/. I've spent most of the morning reading this site and find it quite hilarious! I even purchased the indie flick nothing so strange
to see what all the fuss was about.
finally after what seems like many years, FARK has an RSS feed
. I know quite a few people that read fark religously as I do and this will come as good news.
thank you pluck.com.
in my excitement I failed to mention
that this is only availible when using the Pluck RSS News reader (which I have never heard of before)
was the link to the actual RSS feed
. Here is the official blurb from the pluck
Pluck brings the best of the web directly to you. Pluck automatically retrieves updated headlines and articles from your favorite web sites and blogs, in the Pluck RSS reader. Searching large sites like eBay and Amazon is a snap when Pluck delivers the results for quick scanning and customized sorting. Pluck transforms Internet Explorer into a web workhorse!
If you are getting IM's from people that contains a link to something about Osama Bin Laden DON'T click it. The message contained what looked like a link to a story about Osama bin Laden being captured, and offering to download and install a player for the video clip.
I've finally gotten above water in my work and have been now tasked with a new project where I am constructing a Web Services architecture. I've been scanning a few sites and I have a few questions that I need answered that I'm either missing or just can't understand what I'm reading. So maybe someone here will be able to either point in the direction of a good Best Practices document or help with the answers.
- Multiple calls to various methods or single call with lots of data? I would think that since processing is cheap these days that all the data should be piped down to the method and have the callee process all the data.
- Since the caller and the callee with both be in .Net better to use simple datatypes or can I get away with using objects since they are of the same development language?
Thanks for whatever you can give me. I'm now gonna settle down and start reading the Application Architecture document from the patterns group and see if I can deduce some other questions I have.
