Working on a bunch of small maintenance fixes in the West Wind Web Toolkit. Ah it's nice to get some feedback rolling in.
Flat water and no one with a boat I know is out. Ok, alternate activity...
WTF is with these Web Services that don't even have a WSDL definition? From a vendor? Who makes these decisions to not be discoverable?
#jQuery plug-ins tend to be very heavy handed when it comes to accepting URLs. No checks for ? or & in several plug-ins I'm looking at. Weak
Well maybe not that messy - something like this: (options.url.indexOf('?') < 0 ? '?' : '&') usually fixes the problems.
@codinghorror Sand, salt water and keys and no scratching...@bradwilson $20 for a piece of plastic has SUCKER written all over it!
It's a Motorhead night. Bomber baby!
More legacy Web Service stuff to work on tonight. Amazing how busy this stuff keeps me, but it ain't exactly a fun exercise.
Even if you don't believe in Peak Oil shouldn't we be bothered that we're pissing away energy at a frivolous rate?
Grumble - machine is complaining about low memory. Looking at ProcMon I see nothing approaching the 13.8 gig commit charge in running apps.
Although my Dell Wireless Adapter driver has 400,000+ open handles. That might explain it...
Ok these facebook 'fan' clubs of whatever trivial matters are freaking me out. How pathetic can we get? http://bit.ly/c1s1j
Hmmm... what's the best way to route a request like this: 'localhost/mz32a' ? Notice root site and no path (URL *has to be short*).
Only way I can see to do this is with custom URL rewriting in a module? Anything else (Routing, UrlRewrite module) require a path to diff.
Nice: burnt VS2010 CD locked up the CD drive.
Great another half thought out Help Standard from Microsoft: http://helpware.net/mshelp3/h3intro.htm. Only for VS...
Worst part about it: XHTML 1.1 compliance is required which means most old help content will have to be tossed...
... especially given that HTML Editor (IE based) doesn't produce anything near XHTML 1.1.
Why does VS always have to install the Office Dev crap? Why is this even in the box? If there ever was a purpose for an *add-on* this is it.
How many people have ever built Office interop apps? 2? 3? :-} Ok maybe a few more, but definitely not a common use case?
Similar reasoning for: SQL Compact, Sync Framework. There are *4* diff Sync Network install items!
@RickStrahl Apparently Sync and Sql Compact are managed by the same folks. Can someone at MS help these guys deploy a product please?
