    When you have a problem and think "I know I'll use regular expressions" you now have two problems
    I know, I usually say the same... I didn't know about the HTML Agility Pack, I will look at it next time I need something like that...

    .Net rules!



    Microsoft has the best developing platform in the world with .Net!

    I need to lay of the coffee,.. Smiley

    We should team up and create a .NET appreciation day – just like “Talk like a pirate day”…

  • Why I love .NET

    A colleague of mine had a problem and came to me. A provider of data had closed the ftp server that he used to download some files from. The files were now only available from a web site and he asked me if it was possible to download it from the web site. He sent me an email with the URL and the credentials needed to logon to the site.

    I started to code the solution in VS2008, the first problem is that the site demanded forms authentication so I sent a post to the page with the data that the form needed to logon. WebException occurred! It turned out that the System.Net.WebClient refuses to connect to a site where the certificate has expired – Google code and 5 minutes later I had the solution. Now I was able to download the web page that contains the links to the different files that was available. I used a regular expression to find the anchors in the html document and I downloaded the latest file.

    It took me about an hour to solve my colleague’s problem and I didn’t know much about System.Net.WebClient when I started out. Microsoft .NET made it so simple to solve this problem quickly – I love .NET!

    McCain will win this election.  His speeh the other night, flawless and to the point.  It was one of those speeches that was on par with the Gettysburg address.  It was an event worthy of THE PRESIDENT.  I have no doubt in my mind that President McCain and Vice President Palin will utterly destroy Obama.  Obama will destroy this country if he gets in.  McCain has and will always be my 1st choice for president.

    Obama is like Microsoft, a sinking ship and Obama will lose.  Russia and everyone who would oppress and torture innocents are put on notice.  I even think the FSF and RMS himself are endorsing McCain.
    That McCain dude, isn't he a bit old? I mean like very old, it is a bit of a risk to have such an old man as the president, right? Is he in perfect health?

  • Do you still use stored procedures?

    We only use LINQ for our business applications (so far LINQ-To-SQL, but soon ADO.NET entity framework). Our BI-department still use stored procedures.

    I would love to never write another line of T-SQL ever again!

  • Visual Studio 2008 RTM before november 5th

    I really hope that we get to know more today. At least a timeframe for RTM availablility for MSDN subscribers.

    I'm a little bit annoyed that such a big secret is made of the estimated RTM date of VS 2008, even though a lot of people currently using Beta 2 would benefit from beeing able to plan their switch to RTM accordingly. Requests for more details on Scott Guthrie's blog have been left unanswered so far.

    I am crossing fingers for a release very soon. I have tried to get Scott Guthrie to tell us all when it is released, but so far no answer... Embarassed[C] Scott is usually a good source of these release dates.

    Microsoft has DevConnections this week, next week there is the TechEd in Barcelona and the 13th there is an event with VS2008 in Denmark where I live.

  • The future of Vista? What can MS do to restore the faith?

    For me Vista has been a bit of a disappointment, I have had too many hardware problems with Vista, mainly with graphics drivers. In previous threads on Channel 9 others expressed the same frustrations.

    So, what is the best thing Microsoft can do to restore the faith in Vista? Is SP1 enough or should they rebrand Vista as Vista SE? Should they just hurry up and release Windows Seven? Tongue Out

    Would it be possible to render the controls in XP and use the native ones in Vista?

    Microsoft went down the "render the controls in legacy OS" route before with the VB runtime libraries several years ago.  It was unpleasant.  I remember ListView and TreeView columns looking and working like crap (redundant borders, column resizing behaviors broken, etc).  For a more recent example, I recall a Niner (Rossj, I think?) expressing displeasure with the pain that ugly WPF rendering in XP was causing him.

    I think they're looking forward, not backward. Maybe we'll see Vista-style controls in the next version of the .NET framework a few years from now (Windows 7 timeframe). That version probably won't be required to support XP.

    Would it be possible to create an assembly "Microsoft.Windows.Forms.Vista" that would include the new controls and throw a NotImplementedException if you tried to execute it in < Vista?

    Vista controls are available to Win32 programmers.  The problem with including Vista controls with a .NET framework release is that the framework has to run on operating systems other than Windows Vista, namely Windows XP.

    Would it be possible to render the controls in XP and use the native ones in Vista?
