I have a new review up of a book that I found to be quite good.
Ran across a post today on the null coalescing operator in C#.
A faithful reader of the blog commented on my post the other day about using HttpRuntime vs HttpContext. Anderson's main point is absolutely right, and worth repeating. Here's what he said:
It's sad, but I've met a number of these guys. I've even been some of them at one time :)
Sometimes I find a discussion on something and I think to myself "you really need to blog this, because you may need to find it again some day and someone else might find it helpful." The adverse side effects of not doing this hit me the other day. I needed this little tidbit, but it took me a while to find it because I didn't blog it the last time I saw it! So here it is.
A few months ago I drastically changed how the urls on my site were built. I moved to using the ASP.NET 2.0 virtual path provider to make more friendly urls. Because I changed the "directory" structure, havoc was wreaked upon my unsuspecting relative urls. I had to go through my posts and look for bad links. I figured I might had missed some.
Some of my very nice readers pointed out some issues in my rss feed. I've worked through some of those issues.
Silverlight is a new offering for developers that Microsoft is currently working on. Right now Silverlight 1.0 it is still in beta. Essentially, think Flash, except better. At least that's the general idea. For more info, I would start with the Microsoft page for Silverlight. Chances are, though, that if you're here, you know about it. But just in case, there you go.
That's sorta what I said the other night when I fell off a ladder (while painting) and cracked the bone in my right heel.
