  • Accessing VSS from a .net managed code

    There is a set of COM objects for interacting with VSS.



    P.S.  I assume you mean 'Visual Source Safe' not 'Volume Snapshot Services'

  • asp.net PDF help

    Have a look at this...

    Just don't forget that you have to map .pdf to aspnet_isapi.dll


  • unmanaged code and longhorn security

    hi tensor, that's an example to describe why i feeling .net code is not security as you think,you are like naked when your source code is opened.

    Don't over look the fact that you can write your proprietary algorithms in unmanaged C++ and write all the boilerplate in managed. That way you can spend more time on the intreasting parts.

    Out of intreast, what sort of apps do you write.  Shrink wrap, low volume or custom for a single end use?


  • ASP.NET talk to exchange server, possible?

    triston wrote:
    Hi there,

    i was wondering, is there any possibility for ASP.NET to communicate with Exchanger Server 2003, in order to trigger some events like send email, send calendar or send task??

    For mail talk to the exchange server via SMTP with System.Web.SMTP.

    For the others have a look at the CDO COM objects.


  • I Fully Support Mr. Grimes, .NET is NOT the right technology for US as a C++ programmer

    the place become more and more small.
    in unmanaged world, database,multimedia, game, network communication(million thousands clients) ,compiler,even OS all can writen by highly effectively C/C++.
    in longhorn, ...what can i say?

    If you could write it on XP, you can still write the same thing on Longhorn.

    i knew what your question meaning,that's MS won't pay  off.
    the .net won't growing, because there no companies willing to open their important code to others in UNALLOWED situation,MS doesn't,ORACLE doesn't too,as i have mentioned managed code is not safe enough(decompile).

    Off the top of my head from MS

    Microsoft CRM
    BizTalk 2004

    These all contain a high level of managed code.


  • hard disk help

    its seems with scsi - ive always used them and seagate either barracuda or cheetah - but the cheetahs are still small space wise..

    ide drives choke when working in layers on 200mb+ images

    you may be right though.. 7200.. its been that speed forever now

    In that case get a copuple of SCSI drives and set them up in RAID-0, this has two drives in parallel so that data writes alternate between the two, hence giving you twice the disk IO bandwidth (well almost..)  There are nice SCSI controllers that do this all in hardware for you.

    Just remember to back it up!  Lose one disk and you lose the data on both.  There are other version that use extra disks to protect the data on the others in the set.

    ignore all this if you already know how RAID works...

    It's their product, they can charge what the hell they like.  It may not seem fair to you, but there are enough people out there that seem pre-paired to pay.

    The point is that these things have to pay for themselves in the real world, and the marketing scheme MS is using is a subscription based system to off set the lost leader they have on the consoles and to pay for the original and future development costs of the platform.  Xbox live can not just be considered in isolation, it's profits pay for the hardware development.

    Maybe you would like to pay 3 to 4 times the orignal purchase costs for the console, but a lot of average users (not the tech savy type like you find here) will not and it's easier for them to pay as you go.

    Maybe you don't agree with that approach, then fine, you don't have to subscribe and as you say you can use a PC based system that does not require the same revenue model.

    EDIT: one last thing, OSS etc preaches that software should be free and proffits made my providing a a service.  This is what xbox is doing but you now seem intent on destroying that revenue model as well.


  • Windows. 10 bucks a month.

    As an aside, I already rent some of my MS software licenses


    As a home user, I don't know.  If the release schedule was higher I would.  If it meant a garanteed new major version every 18 months, I would pay $10/month. The current 4 year cycle is too long to justify subscription.
