Last night I was talking to some folks about routing in MVC, and how that would also be useful with WebForms as well. Today I see a podcast from WallyM on the subject, http://is.gd/3J4T
Here are the show bullet points Not just for MVC Available with .NET 3.5 SP1 System.Web.Routing Web.config Global.asax Routing class Security Output page

I've talked about http://TransferBigFiles.com in the past. And just for the record, I don't have any stake in the company, it's just a great service that has worked for me hundreds and hundreds of times.
Email attachments suck. Anything larger than a penny drags down email servers. Virus scanners delete anything that looks like an executable (*.js, *.bat, *.zip, *.rar, *.dll, *.exe, *.YouNameIt)
The trick for a long time was to zip your files, then rename the zip to some other unknown file extension, like MyFile.ReallyAZip
This trick is all but dead, because virus scanners are no longer relying on this file extension, but instead just inspecting the file itself. Recently I was trying to send a Zipped up VSProject to a friend. This is riddled with problems. The zip package was about 3 meg. This fits within the normal < 10 meg attachment that most email systems have.
But the package contains exe's, dll's, js's, etc.
Solution! Drive to TransferBigFiles.com
Upload the file in a nice web based format, enter an email address, optionally pwd protect your files, and click send.
There is also a desktop version called the DropZone that enables drag/drop for transferring files. Watch the ~30 second video demo.
File Size Limit: 1gb.
Lifespan of file: 10 days, then it dies.
Easy To Use.
I can't possibly make it to all these sessions, but this is what I'm hoping to catch at PDC.....
