Nothing... at least this is the impression by looking at the workspace...
Nobody answers on the MessageBoard, nobody informs us about the status of the bugs...
Please let we know something... at least we know what to do.
I don't want to fork the main project to do the work that's missing from the main release...
In the home page of the aggregate feed I can see the total number of articles published by bloggers.
But I cannot access them without knowing exactly who have published what...
It would be nice to have an aggregate site for articles... perhaps with the RSS feed of last published articles...
Thomas Lee has a wonderful site, www.reskit.net, full of wonderful stuff for MCT, other trainers and delegates, too!
Check it out!
In this post on the MSF newsgroup, g_ke asked if MSF is useful.
After some answers from me, Thomas Lee showed how MSF was useful on a REAL project:
>Does MSF work? Is there anyone who had made a project using MSF?
I designed the extension to my office using MSF. Well using MSF as a
We started with the vision statement, and went forward from there. We
used an architect to help us with the envisinoing and basic design, then
used the builder for the rest of the tech support. We had a tester (a
friend who is a handyman), as well as UE (my wife and daughter). We used
the tradeoff triangle for every key change.
We ended up a bit over our original budget, but this was OK. We learned,
during the construction, that some parts of our initial design were
'wrong' and we needed to change. In our case, the builder had planned on
concrete outside, but it looked awful and we opted for York Stone. We
also needed a lot more electricity work than the original
budget/estimate called for.
In summary, the work took a bit longer than we'd planned (mainly due to
really bad weather and a minor construction problem), cost more, but we
are very, very satisfied. We've even gone ahead to do the V2 iteration
(renovating the garden to take advantage of the new office).
So yes, MSF can work very well!
I think that also Rafal Lukawiecki should include this project in one of its next presentation of MSF, regarding how MSF worked on successful projects :-)!
Many thanks to Thomas for the permission to quote his post!
Thanks to UGIdotNET I've a new blog in italian.
The blog is called Sfoghi di un genio del male! that means "Rants of an evil genius!", and will contain different things.
I'll continue to maintain this blog as my main blog, and that one for things that are more relevant to who speaks italian!
UGIdotNET the leading Italian .NET User Group has a renewed site: www.ugidotnet.org, and a whole new blog engine blogs.ugidotnet.org, and guess what are they using... Yes, you're right: .Text, the greatest blog engine!
Congratulations to Andrea for the smooth upgrade !
UPDATE: Here is Andrea's official announce...
I've updated the MSF 4.0 resources list with Keith Rowe's post...
If somebody succeeded to download the documentation, please contact me, so I can give you my email address... Please!!!
I'm really interested in MSF, and when I found this post this morning I was very excited: MSF Agile preview is now available!
But, there is a problem... The files are hosted on Suckspaces (TM) and it's more than an hour that I try to gain access to the workspace, but it's impossible...
Errors, errors, errors, please somebody will kill that dns alias, format all the servers and jail who has put that beast online...
Please tell me why when I search for a workspace and I'm not signed in it works, and when I'm signed it doesn't... what kind of stupid logic was implemented?
Please tell me why when I try to sign in nothing happens? And when I try to join the workspace I continue to receive an error page?
I think that this site merits the first prize on "the daily WTF", for the WTF of the decade...
Ok... now it's better that I start cooling down...
I was reading all the blogs about the "vulnerability" in Windows XP SP2 that a malicious program running as Administrator can fool the security center.
I think that if I have a malicious program running inside my PC, my last problem is the security center.
I think that if there is something that administrators cannot do, there will be, in a way or another, the way for a malicious program to exploit it.
It's like having for example the ability for a program to survive when it's killed, who can stop a malicious program to find a way to exploit it and never be deleted.
The problem is not hiding things from administrators accounts, the problem is that people that doesn't need administrators rights are using the wrong account.
The article gives a brief introduction to Reporting Services and then shows a sample program that can obtain reports from the Reporting Services Web Service.
As always you can use this blog to provide feedback on this article.
There was a problem and the very final part of the article was cutted, with another listing and the conclusions...
I hope to be able to post it on the web...
I'll keep you informed.
