I have setup a subtext installation on my business website. As I am getting into more and more blogging, I wanted to have my own installation and subdomain.

You can find the new blog here

Thank you very much to the GeeksWithBlogs staff. I appreciate your patronage.



I have come to a crossroad recently since I got a new laptop at home and was wondering what some peoples solutions are to the problem I am faced with. Basically, I have desktop and a laptop development machines at home. Sometimes if I go on the road I will work on a project on the laptop, and while at home on the desktop. In my domain layer, I have ......

We all know it. We all try to follow it. GeeksWithBlogs.net is a community with many lifelong geeks. Many of them programmers. In the last year with constant research I feel that I have come futher than I have in the last five years. It goes to show that programming really is a way of life. Nowadays I live, breath eat and sleep it. Don't get me wrong, ......

I just posted a new article on thecodeproject. You can find it here I've been meaning to write it for awhile. It was hard for me to gather together all the information when I first started playing with CI. I was setting up another CI server at home and figured while I was walking through setting it up I might as well take notes and make it into an article. ......

Jeff Atwood has an interesting post about Open Source Billionaires and why they aren't any. I find this topic very interesting as I always enjoy researching differences in open source vs. commercial software. At one point in time I write a paper for an English class that spoke about the differences between the two. As Jeff states in his posting, there ......

Colin Ramsey has posted a getting start with MonoRail screencast. It walks you through downloading monorail and setting up a demo project. It's very basic but it gets you started really quickly.

Cheers Colin!



I haven't searched google or anything to find a solution but has anyone else found that their SQL Server Agents just randomly stop running? I've had this problem with a couple of my SQL Servers off an on for the last two years. I have a large number of scheduled jobs that run that massages data to feed into other software systems on a daily basis. Every ......

Bobby Diaz made a posting of some code samples of the Linq for NHibernate functions. I haven't read through all of his linq posts yet, but this guy is doing some pretty ingenious stuff. I can't wait to start playing with Linq when I get some more time. I've been too busy with other development projects lately to really do any worthwhile research. I ......

Ayende has a recent post talking about Orthogonal Frameworks in relation to open source projects. Personally, being a developer for an educational institution (a public school district), this is the reason open source frameworks so appealing. The last thing I want to do is require the district to purchase a framework that is closed source. This creates ......

I just posted an article to TheCodeProject describing how to use Ayende's Rhino.Commons to connect together all the pieces of SqlCE and NHibernate to achieve disposable Database Unit Tests. Amazingly the perfomance of SqlCE and NHibernate is very good. Once the initial SessionFactory is built, tests run pretty quickly. No benchmarks right now but I'll ......

Yesterday was presidents day, and I had a day off from my cushy school district job. As a result, I decided to read up on ActiveRecord and other portions of the Castle Project. Only to find that all day yesterday and this morning that CastleProject.org seems to be down. Reverse lookup is working, but their server is responding to pings or anything. ......

Ok, I'm sitting glaring at the radiant glow of my laptop monitor, barely keeping my eyes open after messing with my continuous integration server trying to get it up and running. CC.NET, NAnt have all gone fine, it's once I start messing with actually building one of my test solutions that I run into problems. Granted, this is the FIRST time I am messing ......

Just read an interesting post that makes alot of sense. Ayende talks about problems with Microsoft's lack of adoption for OSS in relation to tools available to .NET developers Post on Ayende's Site And here's some more to add to it on Jeremy Miller's blog: Jeremy Miller's Ditto Post ......

Just purchased the following books: Hopefully these are good books, I've been hearing alot about them. I figured I would pick them up as they were only $20 each. I am peticularly interested in the pragmatic unit testing. I'll let you know how they turn out ......

The purpose of this blog posting is to hopefully identify my own pitfalls as well as help others out in avoiding pitfalls that I encountered on my current large project. I recently (8 months ago) started my own business with a partner. My partner has vast knowledge of the marketplace (the domain expert), and I have vast knowledge (or so I would like ......
