  • Intro to Windows Azure with Scott Hanselman


    That was indeed the problem.  On the "Publish Web" dialog there is a "Setting" section that I could enter and selection Configuration="Debug".  I didn't guess that I needed to go there, since the Configuration Manager settings for my application were set to Debug. And unfortunately this step wasn't a step that was shown on the Video.

    But other than that the video was awesome and VStudio 2013 is working great.

    Thanks again for the help.

    Any idea what might be causing this.  I recorded a quick video of this at


  • Defrag Tools: #8 - Mark Russinovich

    Mark. I can't say enough good stuff about the sysinternal tools. They've been saving my sanity for years.

    Hey... If you're thinking about a fun new project (like you don't have enough on your plate), that Audiobook idea that Sailivi mentioned would be super cool. And I bet it would be ultra-awesome if you were the Narrator.  Cheers!

    Great show as usual.  One other thing to recommend for best WiFi signal strength is using the open-source inSSIDer application to monitor signal strength.  This tool give you a very clear indicate of signal strength in a chart.  It also shows information about channels being used, so you can avoid conflicts.  This is a great free tool.
