Tim O'Reilly on Many Things
IT Conversations brings us an interesting audio interview with Tim O'Reilly (with a perhaps overly-fawning interviewer). O'Reilly offers some details about the history of O'Reilly & Associates. More importantly, he discusses the software paradigm shift:

SharePoint 2003 RTM!?!

SharePoint 2003 tip: Removing malicious web parts from a web part page
Ever imported a web part into WSS/SPS, added it to a web part page and regretted it because it messed up your web part page? I did! Today a collegue told me the trick (thanks Dirk!): Enter the following URL in your browser: http://servername/_layouts/1033/spcontnt.aspx?PageView=Shared&url=urlofpage You now get an overview of all web parts on the page and can perform administrative tasks on them. I also messed up my portal homepage, but couldn't get it working here! Any ideas?

Keith Henessy Makes Me Proud to Fail
Let us consider together, for no other justifiable reason than that I saw them within two days of each other, the aforementioned Underworld and Keith Hennesy's Circo Zero. In both cases you've got good costumes, attractive performers, plenty of room for shadow, &c. But you could've guessed all that. What struck me, because, either I'm too sensitive, or else I'm getting soft, was the politics. Yes, Underworld has politics, and if you give even the slightest provisional rat's ass about the plot, such as it is, then stop reading right this minute or you'll be annoyed with me 'cause I'll just have rendered the narrative even more dreary and inevitable than it would have otherwise unaided been. As should be obvious from the trailer, but not the poster, you've got your basic centuries-long inter-species blood feud between the cool-and-refined, brooding, self-satisfied vampires and the somewhat more rough-and-edgy, down-and-out-at-the-talons werewolves (except that the term "werewolves" ...

More Compact Framework Thoughts
More Compact Framework Thoughts Wow! Two posts in one day. Considering the dearth of posts from this blog lately that is pretty amazing. After my earlier rant I remember something I brought up with the CF team at Microsoft. When I have heard the limitations of CF described in the past by MS folks it has been in the context of, "We are running on smaller, memory constrained devices so we built a smaller version of the framework that fits in just 2 MB." That is all well and good but I am starting to do work for Windows CE based devices with 128MB and 256MB and I really want the full power of the framework. While it is impressive that they were able to compress the amount of goodness that they did into 2 MB but what about developers for which there is abundant memory available? Why didn't the team take more of a factored approach such that if I was willing to give them another 2MB I could get remoting or <insert your favorite dropped feature here>? This really brings to life the ...

Skype applications
I spent a whole lot of time today in trying to contact Dell support to help me fix a bug in my PC. I had to hold on for over 40 minutes before a customer service person actually took my call - and then another 10 minutes or so before i was re-directed to the right person for help. Made me think of business opportunities around Skype - how easy it would be if they had a 'skype me' support line - i could just buzz them with a skype me request to call - and they could get back to me when i'm online. So neat if vendors of software and support centers could build this into their systems. This sounds like fun - Stuart and Phil are organizing dinner tonight (breakfast hour here) to brainstorm and discuss opportunities around Skype.

Bizarre Campus
Sometimes I wonder what people are thinking as they wonder around my university campus. I’m all for individualism but some people take it to the extreme. In the past weeks I have seen some horrible fashion. Tilley in not some fashion guru, or even do I care about fashion, but I know the crushed velvet pants should never be worn. EVER! Also I saw a girl in 80’s style leg warmers! I thought I had been implanted in flash dance. Then there was this other young lady with fluorescent yellow shoes. This caught my attention from over 100 yards away. It was like her feet were glowing with radiation it was so bright. But maybe all these things are what the cool kids are doing. Oh and there should be some kind of washroom graffiti code. When in the can you want amusing statements written about. Things like “for a good time contact danger”. Not a huge ad done in white out for Ultima Online. I kid you not. Some one took the time and tagged UO and it’s symbol on the back of the stall door. This ...

Gamers Europe likes what it sees in preview of Spartan
Although the graphics weren’t completely finished and they only saw the pre-alpha version of Slitherine's newest game SpartanGamers Europe previewers liked what they saw. "There is a good Civ-like strategy element, and the battles play smoothly, no matter how many units are involved. I watched a battle between the Persians and the Athenians. It started out with several large blocks of red and blue on a minimap and the main viewing area was devoted to the battle itself. As the Persian cavalry advanced, the Athenian phalanx lay in wait. At the very last moment, 100 spears, each 30’ long came up out of the grass to meet the charging cavalry. “Can you say kebab?” I asked. Indeed they could. The rest of the Persian army saw this and thought “oh dear”. After a while the battle began to go in favour of the Athenians. Morale plays a big part in this game. If you start losing a little, you’ll soon start losing a lot. If your poor infantry are charged from the flanks or the rear, don’t be ...

I got the SqlXml managed provider blues.
I am really tired of writing the following code every time I use the SqlXml managed provider: try { XmlReader reader = command.ExecuteXmlReader(); } catch (SqlXmlException exception) { exception.ErrorStream.Position = 0; throw new ApplicationException(new StreamReader(exception.ErrorStream).ReadToEnd(), exception); } The problem is that all the interesting information for a SqlXml error is contained in the ErrorStream and not in the exception description. This and a few other reasons have finally driven me to write my own SqlXml managed provider. It will probably be more like an adapter (in the Gang of Four sense) which aggregates the existing provider because I’m going to tweak the interface quite a bit to my own taste. But hopefully it will enable me to reuse the 100 lines of code or so that I have to include every time I use the SqlXml managed provider. I will post the new provider when I finish developing it. Ironically it probably suggests that we should ship a new version of ...

Computer Gaming World Gives Only Fair Rating to Chariots of War
Despite favorable reviews by GameZone, Game Chronicles, and Ace Games, Computer Gaming World gave Chariots of War only a "fair" review in its latest issue. "Surprisingly, there's no battlefield commanding once combat begins. You're forced to watch your army carry out overly simplified movements until the battle is over. Victory is based soley on your predeployment choices, rather than your leadership during the fray...These chariots are doomed to run in endless frustrating circles."

The sky goes black. The air rings with a blood curtling screech. It's disrupting to my sleep, and I wake up horrified, my heart pounding in my chest. I open my eyes. The morning sunshine is just creeping through the blinds. But the beeping! Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep!I can't escape it.It's everywhere.And then the realization comes: it's Tuesday.The trashman screams out a shockingly blissful "Good Morning!" to my ...

Compact Framework Rant
Compact Framework Rant I admit it. I have been doing a considerable amount of Compact Framework programming over the last couple of months. First off let me say I think Compact Framework hold great potential. That being said I think it has a long way to go. I recently build two applications using the compact framework. One was a kiosk style application that had to communicate with other controller programs running on the kiosk. This communication ended up happening using windows messages. Luckily the MessageWindow class provides a way to receive messages however it is the only hWnd exposed so the applications I was communicating with had to do a FindWindow() on my forms to find their hWnds. Ridiculous considering the hWnd is exposed off each windows form in the desktop framework. Next problem we hit was that come to find out Windows CE has a 32MB process size limit! Of course we were precaching a number of graphics, etc and even attempting to play video which meant that we hit this ...
