CaRDiaK CaRDiaK We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done.
  • Windows 8 Threshold rumors

    I get far more out of mine just using the kb.

    Here are some pretty useful examples;

  • sandbox hosting

    Thanks for the reply Sven. 

    Basically I'm just looking to host a simple asp.net mvc site for my blog. 

    I'd also like to make some dummy online applications to play with and to dump my notes from talks, books, exams etc.. I'm thinking of it more as an online portfolio more than anything else. And with that I'd like to make some form of Android and WP app that can perform basic crud to a db on the site. 

    I've never looked into this sort of thing before and seeing as I use the Windows stack and I don't have a lot of knowledge of Azure, figured I'd put some feelers out. 

    With what I'm looking to do, do you think Azure is overkill? Do I just need some simple asp hosting to achieve these goals? 



  • sandbox hosting

    I'm wanting to setup a blog and share some projects online. I'd also like to tinker with some WP and Android apps I've wanted to start for a while. Just simple steps to start, something to tinker around with really so I think the time has come for me to finally setup a site. 

    Has anyone here used Azure for pet projects and a blog or anything similar? How was the setup process and were there any gotcha's you can share? So far I'm finding the pricing a little hard to get my head around. Do I need a small VM or do I need these various other types of machine? There seems to be a lot of different bandwidth options for each. Any links to point a guy in the right direction you can share? 

  • Chromecast

    Neat little device! 

  • So, is Surface RT a failure yet?

     Android as a whole is still being outsold by the iPad by a very large margin.

    Keep drinking the Kool aid.

    But it would seem it took you getting one for free* in order for you to commit to it.

  • E3 Smackdown

    Nobody I know or have spoken to is interested in XBone now, not a single person. 

    Taking away something that has been part of gaming since the dawn of it is ludicrous and I don't know who you think you are to pull such a stunt. 

  • I'm not sure I like where this is going.

    Thanks for sharing. I do understand where you are coming from but by the same token, how do I know if someone opposite me really is making a call and not taking pictures of me discretely? Or how do I know if my MD has one of those camera's you can get in a tie? Or how do I know if I walk past someone with spectacles on they don't have a hidden camera in the bridge.. the answer is I don't know.

    Each of the above  you can get for less than Glass in a novelty shop.  

    I totally get the argument. I can just see this getting out of control and Glass getting canned, which would be such a shame seeing as the problem already exists with or without the Technology... downside being there are so many positives and potential benefits to it, it's a big leap in the right direction in my opinion, which I suspect the tabloids / govt / people who don't value tech will play down because someone "could" and probably will take a picture sometime. There needs to be some form of sensible and socially acceptable balance.

  • I'm not sure I like where this is going.

    It's a shame to see this fantastic piece of technology fall foul to privacy.

    All these issue have existed long before and will way after, even if Glass never happened.

    There's more camera's than people in the UK these days and if / when someone wants to abuse peoples privacy, it will happen. It's the exception, not the rule.

  • Very tired

    Personally I'm not a 5.01 coder..

    I find I work well under a certain amount of pressure.

    It's when this pressure becomes too great (not having enough time to actually write the program, never mind thinking about it) when I start to crack. Sometimes this leads to MMM by getting more resource my way (when it's too late) although not always. Sometimes you just have to march on and get your scar.

    It's retrospect where the process needs to be investigated and amended. Agreeing sensible amounts of work doesn't always happen for me.

    There are so many variables and circumstances that not all PM's can forsee.. But again in my case, when it hits the fan, quality is out and JFDI is in.

    I feel for you. Hope your ok!
