VS.NET Tips & Tricks notes
This is a BoF session where attendees and presenters (from Canada, yay) share neat little things (some known, some obscure) about working in VS.NET. Creating a class that implements an interface, pressing Tab after the interface name will create stubs for the methods of the interface Ctrl+] jumps to the next end block. Ctrl+Shift+] selects the block. Ctrl+Shift+I enters incremental search. Ctrl+Space (sometimes Ctrl+J, depending on the language) enters IntelliSense. In command window you can create aliases (alias command) to access all menu entries In command window, immed enters immediate mode. Change Dockable from the context menu of the Output window to put it into the source panes. Select New Horizontal/Vertical Tab to split the source window to view two or more files at once. Ctrl+Tab navigates through open source windows (Ctrl+Shift+Tab navigates backwards) Clicking Mark All in the Find dialog will create a bookmark for each entry found. Alt+Drag selects arbitrary blocks of ...

"You Should All Be Worried"
"You should all be worried because, what happened to my brother Leon could happen to anyone". These were the words of Stephanie, Leon Patterson’s surviving twin sister. Leon died in custody on 27 November 1992 in a Stockport police cell. So far, after twelve years of legal battles and a verdict of unlawful killing, no police officer has been convicted in relation to this incident. Stephanie was one among many family members who attended the fifth national demonstration organised by the United Families and Friends Campaign (UFF) on October 25th in Trafalgar Square, London. The UFFC was set up in 1997 as a coalition of family and friends of black and white people who have died in police custody or in psychiatric hospitals. The campaigners seek judicial justice for the family of the victims, demand the end of "institutionalised killings" and want the basic human rights of their communities to be upheld. Audio report and photos.

...die "kleinen" schwarzumrandeten Warnhinweise auf den Zigarettenschachteln. Sorgen sie doch für ein Höchstmaß an Kreativität. Etwa da Rauchergedicht und da Holzblog. Erwähnte ich, dass ich wieder auf die Selbstgedrehten umgestiegen bin? Hochgerechnet spare ich 2 Drittel des Geldes, dass ich vorher für den Scheiß ausgegeben habe. Zudem habe ich als Raucher Mitkämpfer gegen die staatliche Bevormundung auf meiner Seite.

Staged content looks good
It looks like the Indigo content should hit msdn by about 1:30 pacific coast time on Monday. Once I get actual links I'll post them. I also got some email that said flights into L.A. are troublesome for some folks. It appears that the wild fires that are burning around L.A. County are causing flight delays. I'm flying out early Monday morning, if possible. I'll know more tomorrow morning.

Offshore Outsourcing
Who wins when jobs move offshore? (CNET) My employer recently went through a big shift is software development. Most of our software was written by overseas subsidiaries and contractors. This did keep costs down, but lead to a series of problems. The code wasn't as structured as I would have liked. The coding style wasn't consistent from project to project (each contractor had their own way of doing things). All of the overseas companies I worked with had very bad English skills, which made comments in the source code very hard to understand. It was even worse if you tried to talk to them on the phone. Time zone differences stretch out communication with the developers. You have to e-mail them, and wait at least 24 hours for a response. A discussion of four or five e-mails about a software bug is not uncommon. This means it can take almost a week to fix a simple problem. Due to these issues, we have shifted most of our software projects to in-house developers. Outsourcing does have ...

Longhorn from a developer perspective
Hi. I'm Marco Russo from Italy. I'll post english blogs on Longhorn on this site... and first of all excuse me for my not-so-good english.I'm a trainer, speaker and consultant in Italy. My main italian blog is on http://blogs.devleap.com/marco.blog - on http://www.devleap.com you can find italian articles (even mines) and blogs about .NET.My areas of interest are Win32 system programming, .NET CLR and... Business Intelligence solutions based upon Analysis Services.My interest in Longhorn will be to examine the new architecture from a "low level" point of view.Questions that I have today and that I'd like to answer in my next posts: is Win32 really a legacy API? How many APIs will be wrapped up by managed code, and how many Win32 APIs will become unmanaged wrappers on managed code (if this never will happen)? What are the new opportunities that WinFS could give to a programmer? What about the performance of "legacy" code running on Longhorn?See you soon!

Why Cling To Windows
I have had TONS of discussions with people about switching to Linux instead of Windows, and on why they don't do it. The one argument, that I used to concur with is that "There is too much to learn on Linux, and I already know Windows". Not anymore. Just getting a Windows computer to stay functional is now in many ways more complicated than maintaining an enterprise Linux server. I can say this, since I do both professionally.

PSAD
Yes I have PSAD. I started in the CLR internals pre session then I changed my mind and went over to the Web Services session. I already feel guilty and wonder if I shouldn't go back to the CLR Internals.

Whidbey, Yukon, Longhorn News - 2003.10.26 + PDC News + VPC Tips and Tricks
Sam points out that the PDC slides are up (well, at least they will be up. The links don't seem to be working at the moment). Scott Guthrie post a FAQ with a bunch of Whidbey information, and also talks about deployment using the new Publish Web features in Whidbey, and support for (gasp) FTP. Frans Bouma has a list of things C# v2.0 won't include. John Lam strongly recommends that you build some VMWare / Virtual PC images before you show up to the PDC so that you can quickly drop in the Whidbey/Yukon bits and get rolling (without the risk of hosing your main box). If you want to get the most out of Virtual PC, here are some tips from one of our internal docs that you might find helpful. Tips for Virtual PC Make sure you have sufficient memory. For most of the stuff we do, you need to dedicate 256 meg to the virtual PC image. When the image boots, it just grabs all this memory. It's recommended that you have 1 GB of physical memory in your machine so that you have enough left over ...
