At TechEd Europe, Microsoft is announcing some new products targeting beginners, enthusiasts, hobbyists and students: The VS.NET 2005 Express products.
These products consist of:

If these products will be continued and offered for free or little money, they could give ASP.NET a real boost forward!
Just discovered this great article by Robbe D. Morris: http://www.eggheadcafe.com/articles/hijacksession.asp. Worth a read if you're having trouble with your customers or if undefined errors appear.
I just found

US CERT and Internet Storm Center are reporting a rising number of IIS 5 WebServers delivering the Trojan horse "RAT".
The delivered scripts use a non-fixed issue with Microsoft's Internet Explorer - so it will be enough to access a page to get infected. Right now, the only solution to this problem seems to disable Active Scripting in IE.

Microsoft also currently released a statement:
Bad news, bad news.
...and it will be coming soon... :-)
Because I'm under NDA I'm not allowed to say more, but they're really moving forward with "Whidbey"...
And at least at the of next week, you'll know, what I was talking about...
...then you might have done something wrong. That's my opinion.
I mean: Who the hell gives his relevant mails to Yahoo, Google or Hotmail? I'm getting the relevant ones traditionally via my own personal server. I download them via POP3 or leave them where they are and use them via IMAP. In my mail-client (i.e. Outlook) I'm able to filter those mails. I can sort them based on rules or whatever. So, please: What do I need Gmail for? I would use it as some sort of mass-storage for my mails. But then I know, where to find which mail, because I'm always sorting them.
So, again: What do I need Gmail for? Where's my advance when giving Google the right to "read" or at least analyze my own private mails and to place ads in or next to them based on the textual context? I feel I will loose privacy when organizing my mail with Gmail. So I won't use it. But I'm happy with the 2 GB of storage MSN offers me.
And because of this: It's all about size. :-)
I just logged into my Hotmail Premium account and did not believe my eyes:
For the ones not speaking German: 2 GB of storage in the Inbox and up to 20 MB for attachments!
So, where's GMail now?
It was about time! I've been testing the .NET-Plug-In for Eclipse over a year ago - it was simply not usable. But now, it seems to be a lot better:
Looks pretty promising, doesn't it?
