jaybaz_MS writes about Properties? Not my bag baby and makes some excellent points. I’m at a public connection right now so I don’t have time to take up his challenge of writing a generic cached property class, but perhaps when I have some time at home I will (and this post will remind me).
Ok, so it’s been three days since we learned that I’m being activated. What have we been up to? Well, one of our biggest concerns has been that I’ll end up some place dangerous without the proper equipment. Many soldiers, especially reservists, appear to be getting the shaft when it comes to proper gear, prompting […]
This is my first post to this blog, which I’ve just set up. I’m going to try and maintain it while I go through my deployment, but of course there will be times when I’m not able to access the Internet. I’ve set up my wife, Michelle, with a blog here as well, and she’ll […]
Upon returning from a fun Connections conference in Orlando last week, followed by a couple of days at Disney with my wife and daughter, I learned that I am being called up from my current reserve status to active duty in the US Army. My orders require that I report to Ft. Leonard-Wood, Missouri on […]
I’m at ASP.NET Connections in Orlando this week, promoting DevAdvice with my wife Michelle, our daughter Ilyana, and David Gottlieb, who has been doing a lot of dev work for the site. I’ve uploaded the first couple of days’ pictures to a gallery here. Update: David Gottlieb has some more pictures here. I’ll be adding […]

Thus, you can modify the pieces of information you wish to store about a user, and immediately get Intellisense, strong typing, etc. However, the […]
Personalization as a keyword/namespace has been replaced with Profile. The namespace, the config section, etc. Also, the provider model for personalization has changed between the PDC Whidbey and the March04Preview Whidbey, such that now providers must inherit from System.Web.Profile.ProfileProvider, rather than implementing a couple of (now non-existent) interfaces. An example config section using the new […]
I’m presenting two ‘Meet the Technologist’ Sessions at TechEd04. These sessions are similar to breakout sessions and run at the same time as the breakouts and for the same length of time. The only difference is they are smaller and more intimate, with the largest ones seating about 40 people. They are located in the […]
Scott Cate, who runs kbAlertz.com, among other things, writes about an intermittent error he was getting on his site last fall. Shortly before this, I had written an article on msdn about Caching Best Practices, in which I described a caching pattern that should be followed to ensure proper behavior (e.g. no null reference exceptions).
