Crypto Random Numbers
Note to self (and anyone else it will help): public static int GetCryptographicRandomNumber(int lBound, int uBound){ RNGCryptoServiceProvider rng = new RNGCryptoServiceProvider(); // Assumes lBound >= 0 && lBound < uBound // returns an int >= lBound and < uBound uint urndnum; byte[] rndnum = new Byte[4]; if (lBound == uBound-1) { // test for degenerate case where only lBound can be returned return lBound; } uint xcludeRndBase = (uint.MaxValue - (uint.MaxValue%(uint)(uBound-lBound))); do { rng.GetBytes(rndnum); urndnum = System.BitConverter.ToUInt32(rndnum,0); } while (urndnum >= xcludeRndBase); return (int)(urndnum % (uBound-lBound)) + lBound;} Thanks to Kevin Stewart for this.

Larry O'Brien: But what really proved .NET's value proposition to me was when I saw how the subsystem was integrated. Web services may be a buzzword in semidecline, but when you witness the ease with which minimally experienced server-page programmers can successfully participate in developing a scalable distributed application by consuming Web services developed by more experienced programmers, you become a believer. Found via SBC's weblog. Larry O'Brien sees the multi-language aspects of Dot-Net as a way to enable programmers of different skill levels to work together.

VeriSign To Sell Network Solutions
Verisign has agreed to sell it's troubled domain registrar unit, Network Solutions to Pivotal Private Equity for US$100 million (A$145 million). Though it's still a lot of money, US$100 million is a very small amount indeed when compared with the US$20 billion Verisign paid to purchase the business in 2000 (half of one percent to be precise - how the mighty have fallen).

blog survey - a methodological problem
One of the first ideas concerning weblogs that I would like to realise during my PhD studies is connected to a general quantitative research on weblogs. I would like to know, for sure, that the over-representation of women is a fact, that teenagers are the majority of Polish bloggers and that we blog usually at home more likely if we live in medium cities. All these results come from Gierszewski's survey and I told about them at the Blogtalk. Why do I want to check these results?The answer is related to the methodology of Gierszewski's survey. The respondents were aleatory chosen from the bloggers of blog.pl and it is a good point. But the problem starts when we realise that he got only 41% of answers (he sent 1000 requests, he got 411 answers back). How can we know that the relatively big group that did not respond does not have very specific features that would completely change the results? In other words, how can we assume that those who answered are really a representative ...

Québec est toujours dans la mire d'IKEA
Québec fait toujours partie des plans d'expansion du géant suédois du meuble IKEA. "C'est un marché qui nous paraît très intéressant où il existe un très bon potentiel de croissance", soutient Laurence Martocq, porte-parole d'IKEA Canada. Selon Mme Martocq, IKEA serait toutefois tenté de consolider d'abord les marchés existants de Toronto et d'Ottawa avant de s'attaquer à celui de Québec. Qu'à cela ne tienne, car plusieurs promoteurs immobiliers de la région discutent présentement avec IKEA. Selon nos informations, le géant suédois tenterait de mettre la main sur un terrain situé à l'angle des autoroutes du Vallon et de la Capitale, près du Réno-Dépôt de la rue Marais, à Vanier. De cette façon, la multinationale ne construirait qu'un magasin de 220 000 piý sans entrepôt puisque son centre de distribution de Brossard, près de Montréal, serait aussitôt agrandi pour répondre à la nouvelle demande. Idéal pour le transport "juste à temps" des marchandises, ce secteur névralgique de ...

La guerre de l'alimentation amène des retombées dans la région
La guerre de l'alimentation entraîne des retombées économiques importantes pour la région de Québec depuis quelques années. Déjà, des grandes chaînes alimentaires ont annoncé la couleur de leurs investissements et pour plusieurs d'entre elles ce n'est pas fini. Hier, c'était au tour de Sobeys de mettre encore plus de pression sur ses concurrents. En plus d'un contrat de 16 millions $ qui seront consacrés à l'agrandissement de son centre de distribution de l'avenue Galilée, les dirigeants de la chaîne alimentaire n'entendent pas s'arrêter là et poussent la démarche encore plus loin. Le président de Sobeys Québec, M. Marc Poulin, confie au SOLEIL que prochainement, il annoncera la construction de supermarchés pour la région de Québec qui viendront s'ajouter à la liste des 31 supermarchés IGA établis dans la région immédiate de Québec. Cette situation réjouit le maire de Québec, M. Jean-Paul L'Allier, qui voit déjà la capitale nationale devenir un important pôle de distribution pour ...

Cominar poursuit son expansion à Québec avec la construction de trois nouveaux immeubles commerciaux dans le quartier Les Saules, à l'angle de l'autoroute Henri-IV et du boulevard Hamel.
