  • IIS7 config delegation

    Hi devs,

    I'm just finding out about IIS7 config delegation, and haven't grasped it entirely yet...

    How do I turn on anonymous auth in my application's web.config?

    What do I need to insert in there? and where?

    I'll get you a video & specs

  • [Updated Demo] The Proof is in the Pudding: Here is my Fast TreeListView

    Looks really good.

    Although, when I drag the scrollbar pager around, it gets really laggy.

    Same for you?

    His achievements as an engineer may be debatable, his achievements as a businessman are not - which I assume is why he's going on a stamp?

    as far as I know, steve jobs is not an engineer. A marketer, yes. A designer, sure. not an engineer though

    @Minh: He's also responsible for the treatment of technology as aspirational products and fashion, which I feel is a detriment to the advancement of technology in the long run.

    He's the master of marketing for sure. I've always valued marketing skills, but they do have their place. And think about it, he's marketed consumerism... I think there are more important things

    Yes, but consider that anti-bacterial properties of penicillin couldn't have been easily discovered without the germ theory of disease. A lot of science is luck and being in the right place in the right time. :)

    Or dreams... like the co-discoverer of the DNA double helix saying he dreamed of 2 intertwined snakes :)

  • Thanks MS for that computer

    that was fun revisiting that thread... maybe C9 should do a VH1 bands reunited type of special for the old timers of the coffeehouse

    Now we all stand on shoulders of giants, so every invention & discovery is based on something else, but let's play a thought exercise, and say Steve Jobs is responsible for these:

    * Apple PC

    * Apple GUI PC

    * Pixar

    * iPhone

    * Digital Music

    I wouldn't put any of that above the discovery of penicillin

  • Stamp Worthy ?

    No offense but I can think of many more greater inventors than Steve Jobs:

    Steve Wozniak --> Technical inventor of the Apple PC

    Alexander Flemming --> discoverer of penicillin

    Philo Farnsworth --> TV pioneer

    Vint Cerf --> Father of the internet

    Gordon Gould --> inventor of the laser

    Jack Kilby and Robert Noyce --> inventors of the microchip

    Steve Russell --> inventor of "space war"

    Douglas Engelbart --> inventor of the mouse

    Seymour Rubenstein and Rob Barnaby --> inventors of Wordstar

    Robert Metcalf --> inventor of the ethernet

    Raymond Damadian --> inventor of the MRI

    Whoever invented the cell phone

    Gerd Karl Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer --> inventors of the scanning tunneling microscope

    Tim Berners-Lee --> HTTP

    James Gosling --> inventor of Java
