So you'd leave me alone:
Sorry if this is a little off topic, but would anybody know of any good examples on the web of how to perform an automatic reboot using C#?
Yes I do. Click here
. Now go away
sent me this
link from OTN
to an article about PHP vs. ASP.Net. Overall the article favors PHP over ASP.Net and from skimming some of the sections I'm not sure I agree with the points. A great article would be to see a seasoned developer of PHP (4 or 5) vs. a seasoned developer of ASP.Net (1.0 or 1.1) and see how things rack up. More comments to come when I have more time.
p.s. This maybe an old article or not I don't check OTN that much anymore.
p.p.s. This is also NOT written by an Oracle person.
I so wanted to post "This is my first comment", but i refrained. Bet it would have been funny though.
I don't mind them, I generally will read them in hopes that I get "some" background on the person posting like who they are, what they do and other general stuff like that. It's like a book, you read the jacket to get the basics of the book. If it doesn't catch you in that little blurb then you probably won't read the book. It's one damn post. It's not the end of the world. If you don't like it, don't read it.
Why do people feel the need to post a blog about their first blog. How does that help us? At least some people have the common courtesy to say “Hey this is my first blog” AND include some nice technical information. I wish I could bill all the people that wrote about it being their first blog. It is a complete and utter waste of time. What is more annoying is that these people are supposed to be the cream of the crop so to speak in our industry. Do us all a favor and skip over the “This is my first blog” crap. I dare you to be different.

! It's personalized
searching! The system lets you specify catagories of things that you find sexy and then will rank your search results in the catagories you've selected higher then they would appear in normal search results. Very, very sexy.
Yep. Today is GA of Flex 1.0 from Macromedia. Yes it requires some sort of Java Application Server. Yes it uses Action Script as it's glue. Yes it uses Flash as it's UI component. And yes it's expensive.
But I've been rocking it for a few weeks and it's got some leverage in a few projects that I've been working/worked on around here. It connects great to Web Services and is easy for a not smart web developer guy like me. I like it because it gives me some of the functionality I want from Longhorn/Avalon now instead of next year.
Oh and don't forget to give Laszlo a spin too for some comparison shopping.
In my persuit to learn more about the social aspects of blogging and networking with peers/friends/joe random people I came across this site from a simple google search. Zopto is a site that will create a FOAF document for you and also integrates with SharedID.com for use in sites that support it. Here is a link to my FOAF file. From thier site:
Zopto is a website that allows you to create and maintain a profile of yourself, including who your friends are - what your interests are, and where you live.
You can then use the Zopto explorer to browse your friends networks - introduce yourself to new people and keep track of people and subjects that interest you.
As I have been very busy with real work, I have not had much time to blog. Well not about important stuff any way. I've spent the last few months updating and bug fixing some of my early .Net code. I hate doing that. Absolutely with out a doubt hate it. In the past year & a half I've learned so much from when I first started this project that it is hard for me to not start tearing apart my old stuff and updating and moving bits around. I've had to, on a bunch of different times, stop from rewriting large chunks of the system due to time constraints and just the simple fact that it works fine now. I finally wrapped everything up and finished somewhat ahead of schedule but as I selected Release configuration and hit compile I felt my heart drop and lonely feeling wash over me, though this could have been breakfast saying hello. There was just so much more I could have done, so many other things that could have been pruned and cleaned. Ah well! New project ahoy! I know that I will be visiting this code again for the next release (trying to really hold off until Whidbey is released ; ) ) and will most likely want to change all the stuff I didn't get todo this go around.
Am I the only one that feels this way? I think not.

For those of you that like being an IT Manager during the day, you can now play
an IT Manager at home.
From the site:
The Intel® IT Manager Game tests your entire skill set - people management, resource allocation, strategic analysis and planning. It also tests your courage under fire - can you stand up to the scrutiny of top management along with that of your peers in the industry? Will the decisions you make result in breathtaking profits or devastating losses? Will you enjoy the sweet taste of victory or the bitter agony of defeat? Are you destined for management glory or will you be the kid sitting on the sidelines, waiting for the bell to ring?
