December 2007 - Posts
I just got an email from JetBrains with some content about ReSharper 4.0 for Visual Studio 2008, that I am sharing here:
** Comprehensive support for C# 3.0 language features, including:
- New code analysis, context actions and quick-fixes
- New refactorings (such as Convert to Extension Method, Convert to Automatic Property, Convert Anonymous Type to Named)
- Many more intelligence and productivity features
** Full set of refactorings available for VB.NET.
** Compiled libraries are now taken into account in null-reference analysis thanks to external annotations. Stardard libraries come with pre-packaged annotations.
** Code Cleanup - a tool for ensuring compliance with code guidelines and enhancing code structure.
** Complete Statement - a feature that will complete language constructs and get you ready to write the next statement.
** Many other enhancements and new features throughout the product.
I have made an animation using Microsoft Expression Blend 2 December Preview that I would like to export to a Video, anyone made that already? How?
I used Camtasia 5 to record the screen directly from Blend 2. The result is not bad but it miss some fluidity in the video of the animation!
So anybody have another way of doing it?
I just pushed to production the new version of my French portal Tech Head Brothers that uses .NET Framework 3.5.
This new release correct some bugs of the old release and improve some part of the design. For the new functionality you will have to wait for the next release that will include some great new .NET technologies.
So today here are the technologies used on the site:
- .NET Framework 3.5
- C# 3.0
- ASP.NET AJAX
- ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit
- CSS Friendly Adapter
- Windows Communication Foundation
- XML/XSLT, XML Schema
and the "technologies" that are indirectly used are:
- Office Word 2007
- Visual Studio Tools for Office
- Windows Live Writer avec son SDK
How can it be that my girlfriend France-Anne that has no clue about CSS and HTML can fix in 3 minutes a CSS issue on Tech Head Brothers that I spend an hour without any success ?
I am using a tool from HP called hp Health Check that runs one time per week. Till now I didn't get any recommendation that I didn't know about but today that changed.
External Display Detection Issue
There is a known issue with Vista operating systems where external displays will not be detected or will display with the resolution incorrectly if the notebook is booted with the lid closed or if the lid is closed soon after boot.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
When turning on your notebook computer be sure to have the lid open. After logging in, you may then close the lid of your notebook computer.
In the Windows Vista operating system there is a new feature called Transient Multimon Manager (TMM). This feature takes care of the detection and handling of connected displays. When a notebook computer is booted with the lid closed, Transient Multimon Manager is disabled.

I can get it, I updated for the x times the flash plugin and still getting this error again and again.
I will turn this plugin off now to see if I can browse again.
A few seconds ago Didier and I just launched innoveo solutions blog.
If you ask yourself what is innoveo solutions, it is my new company and you might read more about it here:
New start on next Monday
Today was my last day at ecenter solutions (Helvetia)
I am delighted about this announce because I had the pleasure to develop it with my colleague Roy, a very nice experience that will go on. We used Scrum project management methodology and with some experience now I have to say that I am really convince about it.
In the future I will for sure continue to post on my own blog but will cross-post some of my posts on innoveo blog.
I arrived this morning really early at the conference Le Web 3 '07 with Didier.
As you can see on Didier's shot there were not that much people in the room:
More pictures on Didier's post leweb3 is starting!
We will be there till Thursday mid-day, so if anybody wants to meet in Paris, please feel free to contact me.
By the way normally there should be an announcement concerning innoveo.
I read on MSDN Forums that it is not possible to use other configuration than Release and Debug. This is wrong.
I am using it for Tech Head Brothers Portal, what you have to take care of is how you set your configuration. On the following picture you see how I defined a new Staging configuration and set the Web Deployment Project WebApplication.csproj_deploy to build using this configuration.
Then you are able to use it this way in your MSBuild:
<PropertyGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'Staging|AnyCPU' ">
