  • Some Open Source Ajax Frameworks

    IntroductionI&#39;ve finally had a chance to look at AJAX again.&nbsp; Step one (for me) was to do some research into the different frameworks.&nbsp; The project this is for has nothing to do with .NET, so I still haven&#39;t had a chance to look at ASP.NET AJAX.&nbsp; (Well, nothing worth talking about.&nbsp; I helped a coworker do some debugging ...

  • Linq to SQL Designer Weirdness

    The Linq to SQL designer that&#39;s built into Visual Studio 2008 is pretty, and a huge improvement over what Microsoft&#39;s provided before, in terms of data modelling.&nbsp; I haven&#39;t used enough other OR/M&#39;s to really have an opinion about how it measures up to other products. But it does have its issues.&nbsp; For one thing, it seems ...

  • Linq to SQL with multiple databases

    I think I&#39;ve mentioned that I&#39;m working on a project that dips its fingers into databases all over the place. Its main goal is to eliminate all the systems we have around that are also doing this.&nbsp; If it has to be done at all (and, really, it does), it should only happen once. One of the biggest issues I&#39;ve run across while doing ...

  • Some Initial Thoughts on Google App Engine

    More like observations, really. There&#39;s nothing here that&#39;s new or interesting, if you&#39;ve been following it at all.&nbsp; But, if you&#39;ve been mildly curious and haven&#39;t taken the time to really read anything at all, this may be worth your time. I was really excited about the app engine beta.&nbsp; But that&#39;s mainly ...

  • First Impressions of Web2py

    It kicks ass. There&#39;s a video that demonstrates web2py and Google appengine that pretty much says it all.&nbsp; If you&#39;re like me, and you&#39;d rather read a set of step-by-step instructions than watch a video, this is for you.&nbsp; (OK, this is actually for me when I start a new project 6 months down the road and have forgotten how to ...

  • Initial Thoughts on Google App Engine

    If you haven&#39;t heard of Google App Engine by now, you&#39;ve probably been living under a rock.&nbsp; I won&#39;t try to explain it, or even include any links.&nbsp; Go check out what google has to say about it: it&#39;s intriguing, at the very worst. It&#39;s really the first step toward the distributed web as a viable application ...

  • Linq to SQL and linked tables

    There are several articles about how to do this, but none of them seem to reflect the kind of situations we encounter in the real world. They all seem to revolve around the same tables in the Adventure Works database, and they give you glimpses of &quot;What&quot; rather than &quot;How.&quot;&nbsp; Oh, and they all seem to be cases where the ...

  • Linq to SQL and enums

    &nbsp;This is really stupid, but it seems like enough of a stupid niche problem that it might be worth mentioning. There&#39;s an integer column in a database that maps to an enum. Whenever I tried to mark that enum as a column, I got an InvalidCastException (from deep within the Linq reflection-magic call stack). No useful information. So I ...

  • The Perfect Husband

    &nbsp;Several men are in the locker room of a golf club. A cell phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands free speaker function and begins to talk. Everyone else in the room stops to listen. MAN: &quot;Hello&quot; WOMAN: &quot;Honey, it&#39;s me. Are you at the club?&quot; MAN: &quot;Yes&quot; WOMAN: &quot;I am at the mall now and found ...

  • Empty try/catch blocks

    I&#39;ve seen several people do this, and it&#39;s always been a big clue to me that they&#39;re very new and inexperienced with .net. There are a few variations. try { blah; } catch {} That&#39;s probably the absolute worst. Your exception disappears completely, and no one ever knows it happened. I&#39;m sure there are times it&#39;s ...
