Doug Butscher Nothin' but .NET! April 2005 Entries
Blazing a migration path!!!
WOW. I'm really excited about this. I've been customizing and maintaining a “fat client” membership management system for a few years now. It's essentially a client-side .exe (built in VB6) framework that invokes GOBS of ActiveX dlls as needed (we decided to put GUIs inside DLLs. That is an entirely different topic, altogether. “that is an entirely different topic”). Zucker humor, anyone? Anyway, I found something in John Alexander's blog on VBRun, and there's an MSDN article ......

Sorry Jeff - really tiny Post bug

Hey, just something I noticed. When I enter a blog, and hit Post, it adds my new blog to the list of my other Posts. If I refresh the page (I'm checking to see if my aggregator updates my Agg read count), it re-posts my blog. So I end up with a dupe.

Again, not typically what your average geek would do, which is why I did it.

SourceGear Vault - looking for recommendation

Hi all.

I was recommended Vault last night, and I'm looking into the pricing. We are a VSS shop, and we are beginning to have quite a few .NET projects, and VSS just isn't cutting it for us.

Is Vault the recommended Source control app out there? If so, is the Gold Support package necessary? Also, is Dragnet useful enough to purchase?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A little about Doug Butscher
Hi there! I'm Doug Butscher. I'm currently the Programming Manager for the VFW in Kansas City. I'm your average nerd... I like gadgets, new technology, and other stuff that makes people laugh at me. The skills that I use mostly are VB6, SQL, T-SQL, and Crystal Reports. I've been delving into VB/ASP/.NET quite a bit lately, if only to stay a little behind the leading edge. And also to take ownership of a .NET-based website that we just took live a few days ago. I'm pretty much learning the street ......

A jorb well done

It's official! VFW Store is now live! Been working on this thing since June '04, but it's finally up. It's a pretty cool .NET based shopping cart where you can buy U.S. Flags, Caps, Jackets, a bunch of stuff from the VFW Supply catalog, and other patriotic items.

Check it out sometime!
