Why are music companies shooting themselves in the foot?
As soon as it has been released, I went to my local CD reseller to buy Sleeping with ghosts, Placebo's latest album. I was ready to enjoy this great music, but...
What people say about Bamboo.Prevalence lately
Justin from News from the Forest tries BP. He writes how he really feels about object prevalence.
About which I say something.
The discussion about object prevalence continues...
Justin has a well thought reflection about object prevalence (and Bamboo.Prevalence).
This is just a trick to have the term DotNet appear on my pages! ;-)
New version of XC#
ResolveCorp has just released a new version of eXtensible C#. Here's what's new:
I just started to use NUnit and NUnitAddin. They are great!
Simplicity is the key word as far as they are concerned.
Tools tools tools for .NET
I've started to put together a categorized list of various .NET tools.
This list is not complete of course, but can be useful if you search a tool for a specific need.
The list is moving! Check http://SharpToolbox.com out.
Fun for a change
Good one spotted on stronglytyped and coming from The Code Project:
Weighting optimizations' worth
Scott and Victor had a little discussion about getting the value inside the loop vs outside the loop. Now common sense would dictate to me that outside the loop would of course be faster. So, for my own amusement I threw together a little test. I simply ran their code and tried to figure out which one was faster. Going through a 12 item array, declaring with the loop (i < array.Length) actually was 2 seconds faster than getting it outside the loop. Of course, to get a 2 second difference I had to run each chunk of code 500,000,000 times. The difference may have simply have been the overhead of declaring a variable to store the length. I'm not too sure, I didn't dig into the IL.
I'm considering moving away from outlook for a new internet based email client (that look pretty close to outlook) called oddPost.
I have patented patenting
Don Box refers to the AOP patent.
What's next? Patents on zeros and ones? Who's holding the patent on OOP ?
What a stupid money driven world we live in.
Good point from Tim Bray on threats other than Saddam Hussein.
After my simple AOP sample, here is the source code of a sample presenting three interception methods:
