We are now accepting speakers / presentations for Roanoke Code Camp 2010 (western Virginia) being held on Saturday, March 13th at Virginia Western Community College. If you have presented at a past Roanoke Code Camp -- welcome back! Our past reviews tell us we want you back. If you've never presented at a RCC, welcome! We will be having 4-5 tracks this ......

My manager was recently promoted, and although I will continue to work for her indirectly, it is likely that I will have a new manager. In addition, it is possible there will be a departmental reorganization. It may be several weeks (hopefully not months) before my new manager is named and the reorganization is announced. A colleague and I were discussing ......

CodersBarn has a helpful article on the differences between Web Site and Web Application Projects.  It was helpful to me when Master Pages pages were not working as I expected.  Here's the link:  

Thanks to everyone that came out for the MidAtlantic MSDN Roadshow in Roanoke in September. Your attendance and enthusiasm were noticed. I am happy to share that the Roadshow is returning for the afternoon on December 8th to the Roanoke Higher Education Center (it's a really nice venue too!) Registration is required - do it NOW and do it HERE! Oh, and ......

Doug Turnure has recently provided a lot more content to .NET University. .NET University is a site where user groups (or individuals) can download presentations, complete with spiffy slide decks and demos/labs. There are now over 40 downloads (both C# and VB.NET - Yay!) RV.NUG used .NET U back when .NET 3.0 was first released. We found the slides and ......

I was searching (as in BING-ing) for the formula for a loan amortization that I needed for a quick POC I was doing in VB.NET. Went to my most trusted source for high-level knowledge, Wikipedia. SURPRISE!! Following the formula, there was sample code to create an amoritization table for a .NET application in VB.NET. FTW! Found it here: ......

The Roanoke Valley SharePoint User Group (RVSPUG) held it's first "event" last Friday (September 25). The group is hopes to grow and increase community awareness by hosting the event during the workday (as opposed to the weeknight monthly meetings). Special thanks to Susan Lennon, SharePoint guru, speaker extraordinaire from Virginia Beach. She delivered ......

I'm using the ASP.NET membership provider. While testing, I overrode the machine.config and set my password to as follows passwordFormat="Clear" I removed the override (switching it back to the machine.config value of "Hashed"). New accounts are being added with a hashed password. Reseting a password for an account created while the value was set to ......

G. Andrew Duthie (and company) received a great welcome from the always passionate and involved Roanoke attendees at the Fall 2009 edition of the Mid-Atlantic MSDN & IT Pro RoadShow. I know I say it over and over, but presenters really enjoy the Roanoke crowds; their passion, their hospitality and their enthusiasm. So thanks to everyone that attended. ......

As I continue to learn to work on servers, I am often reminded why I didn't want to be an IT Pro (and often avoided learning how). Working with a third-party vendor on a problem, I have been performing searches looking for all locations of certain files. Turns out, search does not always search everything. Why do I get some instances of a .dll returned ......

I am the newest member of the INETA membership team (yay!). I've worked with INETA for over 5 years as a user group leader and have met some really great people as a result. I look forward to working with them and meeting even more (I met a few new people on the very first day I was appointed). I will be focusing on the states of WV, TN and KY. Our ......

We recently moved a WSS 3.0 farm from a Win2K3 server to a Win2K8 server. I was just told that Windows Server 2008 will only allow one remote user at a time. This means I can't be on the server at the same time as the network technician configuring the antivirus software. Making things even more interesting, when he logs on, it kicks me off with no ......

While western Virginia has more mountains, northern Virginia has more technology events. They might have more events, but when we have them, we have the best. Don't believe it? Sign up and attend a Developer or IT Pro session on September 10th. Better register now or you will only get to attend via the tweets from those of us that registered early :) ......

I have switched from Google to Bing and am liking what I see. If you are still hesitant to make the switch try out this site where you can see the results from both with every search you do. www.bing-vs-google.com/ I have to admit I use "Google" as a verb. However, using "Bing" as a verb ... hmmm... not so sure on that yet ......

I have a laptop running VISTA Ultimate with an 80 GB hard-drive. Something unseen to me is consuming my hard drive. Here's my steps in figuring out what is happening. I have not resolved the issue yet, but will keep updating this post until it is resolved. I had already deleted all of my Temporary Internet Files using the IE Browser. After digging through ......
