Brian Peek chats on how he fixed a leaky handle driver for the Acer 1420P (PDC build) laptop.
Brian used a some free tools to figure out why the one of the tablet's processes was growing at 10 handles second and what to do about it. With the
Process Explorer tool and
IDA, he saw…
Bertrand Le Roy shows off how to create dynamic images leveraging WPF's image manipulation classes in an ASP.Net project instead of GDI+ classes to dramatically reduce creation time.
His prior post on this topic actually shows how to create them and why it is so fast. It also shows off…
Chris Smith had a talk at the CodeMash conference in January 2010 titled “Being an Evil Genius with F# and .NET”. Chris created a post about his talk and doing
Computer Vision, Speech Recognition, and shooting missiles at people all with F#!

Adam Kinney did a pretty neat port of a flash application that
creates an effect that gives an image like it was torn and crumpled up in Silverlight using the WriteableBitmapEx.
Blitting is the act of blending multiple images together. More about the
BLIT operation can be found at Wikipedia.…
I the only one warming up their soldering iron? I posted a bit ago on being able to do a
Windows 7 sensor with a parallax board, but Brian Jepson (@bjepson) of
MAKE and O'Reilly helped port that driver into a more generic driver that works with Arduino!
Right now there is one Arduino sketch…
Pete Brown has created an
example of accessing a scanner with WIA via WPF. In the past we've chatted about
going paperless with WIA and
accessing a camera with it too, but Pete talks about how WIA the guts of it works and how to get an application to leverage it.
To find out more about WIA…
Tamir Gal has a Secure Shell (SSH) library for .Net. What is SSH you ask?
SSH is a network protocol that allows data to be exchanged using a
secure channel between two networked devices
SharpSSH allows you to read/write data and transfer files over SSH channels using an API similar to
David Veeneman wrote a neat little console application that will
convert RGB colors to HLS (Hue-Luminance-Saturation) or HSB (Hue-Saturation-Brightness) over at Code Project.
One of the neat things David also did was show off using IValueConverter as well to do some of the conversion for you.…
We've talked in the past about debugging your application but if you can't attach a debugger to your website,
why not use the ASP.Net Tracing? This acts very much like a Debug.WriteLine in a Windows application but instead you do
Since this does have some memory ramifications,…
