    Thank you for always finding cool stuff.

     

    As for the show notes, I'm trying to add 1-2 sentences on why someone would care about a link Smiley

    Has anyone tried downloading the Visual Studio VM and booting it natively in Windows 7 instead of VPC?

    "Nothing is soon." Ouch. Tongue Out

     

    That wikipedia thing looks amazing. It's just what I needed for a current project, since using the mediawiki API is a total pain to use. Thanks guys (and Greg).

     

    Edit: Ugh, didn't think about the fact that you can't reference that DLL in Silverlight. Gonna have to adapt it to a Silverlight class library, I guess. Then again, won't this cause a problem with cross-domain calls?

    Wisnia,

     

    There are several reasons why this won't work (boot to VHD doesn't really work that way), but the biggest is probably the fact that this is Windows Server 2008 R1 (not R2). Boot to VHD requires Win7 or WS08 R2.

    Glad we could help Smiley

     

    As for calling the service in Silverlight, yeah, the service would need to have a cross-domain policy file so you'd have to see if one exists. Alternatively, you can proxy the request through your server and use the API on the server-side. Not ideal, but it may be the fastest way to get it done.

    Wow.  You guys invoked "The Finalizer", our battle bot.  I still twitch when I think about it.

    We're casting a little wider net audience wise for the helpdesk show. We're hoping the Niners who have the technical chops to answer questions can help and that we can attract a wider set of users to the show.
