First post using VisualBlogger 2004

My first impression is good.

"VisualBlogger 2004 is one of the only Windows blogging clients available to have nearly the full gamut of visual HTML formatting options."


"If you're a developer, VisualBlogger 2004 makes it easy to share your .NET code in an easy-to-read format. Just paste it into the Code Highlighter, and VisualBlogger parses it to look just like Visual Studio .NET, complete with line numbers and colored keywords."

The full feature list is here!

UPDATE: Hmm, It looks like the timestamp is 6 hours off. I'll have to look into that.

Proving and Protecting Email Sender Identity

“Email spoofing - the forging of another person's or company's email address to get users to trust and open a message - is one of the biggest challenges facing both the Internet community and anti-spam technologists today. Without sender authentication, verification, and traceability, email providers can never know for certain if a message is legitimate or forged and will therefore have to continually make educated guesses on behalf of their users on what to deliver, what to block, and what to quarantine, in the pursuit of the best possible user experience.“

If you manage mail servers you should follow DomainKey technology.

Running web service test forms on remote web servers

ASP.NET's default mode is not to allow you access to the web service test forms from remote machines. Loading your ASMX page from a remote machine will produce the following text under the Test section: “The test form is only available for requests from the local machine“. I was able to get around this by placing the following in the Web.Config under the System.Web section:

    <add name="HttpPost" />
    <add name="HttpGet" />


Click on Monday.... Page arrives on Wednesday. Sheesh
