[PDC] XAML XML Schema (Correction)
My previous post has a comment from Rob Relyea (Program Manager, Avalon Team). It looks like I misunderstood the feedack that I received: the XML Schema is in the Longhorn SDK, but it "is not a totally valid schema yet, but it will become one." The comment is reproduced in full below: When you install the Longhorn SDK, xaml.xsd will be installed inside c:\program files\microsoft visual studio .net whidbey\common7\packages\schema\xml\ . Feel free to post that (with the info below): Realize that it has currently only been used to provide good intellisense inside of the xml editor inside of VS. It is not a totally valid schema yet, but it will become one. We are struggling with the fact that it is hard to describe, using Xml Schemas, all of the possible XAML markup that can be used. Attached properties and Compound properties are two things that we enable, that are difficult to express in schema. We'll be working with people to understand what the best course is there... Attached ...

The Seer Sees Mediocrity Well, the Seer wasn't going to go 10-4 every week, was he? Is that what you expected? Still, we have yet to finish beneath .500 in any week (a major, major feat), and this week was no exception: The Seer currently stands at 7-6 for Week 9, bringing the overall record to a still-outstanding 64-46, good for a 58.2% success rate against the spread. We like the Patriots to beat a 2 point spread in Denver tonight.

Microsoft rumours: Did you know that...
Rumours from the battlefield... Did you know that: Although the Yukon release is still very beta, the core is quite solid That CLR support into T-SQL is already working for years That Visual Studio is often NOT used within Microsoft itself by its developers, projects are way too big But that Visual Studio is used for debugging ;-) That for editing often Slickedit 8.0 is used (seems to support code completion...): during PDC presentations often used! That Whidbey contains a new build system (MSBuild) that works a bit like (N)Ant But that within Microsoft a bit older build system is often still in use, that was also available within the Shared Source implementation of the .Net framework named Rotor That XMLSpy an often used tool within Microsoft is (especially within the Yukon group) This info may be true... or not. It is just from hear-say...

Memory usage in your ASP.NET app
At the PDC I saw a presentation where some optimization tips on memory usage in ASP.NET pages were given. The performance monitor was used to look at Gen 0, Gen 1 en Gen 2 usage of the garbage collector. The example was using a StringBuilder class to combine data and write this out versus using direct writes using Response.Write (which was much faster and consumes less memory). I am wondering if there are any good tools to look at memory consumption and garbage collection on a high-load website... Anyone?<img src ="http://weblogs.asp.net/soever/aggbug/35479.aspx" width = "1" height = "1" />

Longhorn: WinFS looks cool!
The WinFS data storage system used in Longhorn seems cool... A short list of some powerful features: There is a concept of Items and relations between Items An Item is something like a file, a folder, a contact, or a user defined type There are two types of relations: holding relationships and reference relationships With holding relationship you can model the well known folder hierarchy, but also much more because an item can be "hold" in more than one relationship (although cycles in the "hold" graph are not permitted) An item has a reference count of its holding relationships. When it has no more references it is removed from the store. Security is on Item level (which could indicate that Yukon, presumably the storage engine in a slimmed down version, has row level security) Every store Item has an unique ID that identifies the Item in the store (although not guaranteed over multiple stores) WinFS supports: Asynchrony (multiple queries and data retrieval at the same time), ...

Napster's back!
A few weeks ago I saw where everyone was posting about the new iTunes for Windows. I checked it out. It seemed pretty cool. But, with the re-release of a paying version of Napster, I was really intrigued with it, so I went and downloaded. I have to say, I've been very impressed. Some of the cool features: Secure WMA support. Built-in Roxio for CD burning. Built-in player with playlists, etc... Streaming radio stations. Great interface for surfing and finding new albums. You get the cross-sell functionality of “People who liked this also liked:“ which always gets me. I'm easy. And, this was huge for me: You can sync your collection back to three computers. So, I can buy albums at home. Go to work on Monday and sync them up there without having to lug them around or pay for them again. The pricing is pretty decent. You can pay $9.99/month for “Premium” service where you get full access to streaming radio stations (ala listen.com). Otherwise, you only pay .99c/song or $9.99/album. ...

mooooo!
In From Monolithic to Grid, Rawn Shah discusses the evolution of computing from the "clean room mainframe" days of the 50's to todays Service Oriented Architectures and tommorows potential for grid computing. While the article is certainly an entertaining read, I'm left scratching my head a bit afterwards. The first thing that catches my attention is that according to this history, that whole internet thing that we experienced in the late 90's was a fad. "Essentially, we're all still in the client-server age, just with millions of clients and servers. " Next, we have this wonderfully colorful yoke/bull treatment of XML. I don't know exactly what his intentions are, here; he almost says that the XML centric messaging and distribution could have serious horsepower, but stops short, and calls it "bull" power. When I hear bull, I think of bullshit; I think of slide-ware, marketing-speak, and Dilbert's boss. The next thing introduced is Service Oriented Architecture; a topic near and ...
