Back in February we (me and one other co-worker) started on a new project. We were both very excited about the project (and still are) so we needed to come up with a great codename. Since we were both Transformers fans as kids we named all the different components after Transformers characters. And now in July we are almost done with the project, so ......

I already had the book xUnit Test Patterns: Refactoring Test Code on my Amazon wishlist. But after reading Sam Gentile's xUnit Test Patterns and evolving TDD and test automation post today about the book and its topics I've decided to go ahead and order it now. I still have 3 books that I am currently reading ( 1, 2, 3 ) but this will jump to the front ......

Here is a simple example, lets try and find the following address: 240 St. Joseph Ave, 94115. Live Maps / Live Local / Local Live / Virtual Earth finds it with no errors or warnings. Yahoo Local Gets the right location after using the closest match "240 Saint Josephs Ave, San Francisco, CA 94115". Web 1.0 Mapquest can't find the address but it does ......

Thanks to Andrew Stopford and everyone else who works on MbUnit development. MbUnit 2.4 was just released. If you are not unit testing or practicing TDD in your projects, I don't know how you could choose plain old NUnit over MbUnit. If you are using regular NUnit it is very simple to convert your projects MbUnit, they use the same [Test] attribute. ......

More than a month ago I wrote a post about trusting software and what it tells you. I ended the post on a tangent about farecast.com and if I was going to trust it with its prediction. I have been keeping track of the prices listed for a flight from San Francisco, CA to Newark, NJ and their confidence value since then. You can check out my graphs below, ......

Anyone visiting digg tonight was definitely in for a surprise. There are a few (hundreds? thousands? tens of thousands?) users that are angry with digg and their decision to take down a post earlier today. The post that was taken down contained the HD-DVD decryption key that can be used in Linux to watch HD-DVD movies. The original submitter has his ......

Thanks everyone at GWB for the free hosting, and for dealing with a long 6 hour upgrade to the subtext blog engine!

When you first use a new piece of software do you trust it right away, or does it need to earn your trust? The same goes for the code you write, are the kind of person who just re-reads some code and says "it will work" or do you doubt yourself until your unit tests are complete and all passing? I'm the untrusting type, and when it comes to my code ......

My team has been working on and off all week trying to find out why one of our windows services was crashing at the same time every day with a very unhelpful eventlog message. Like all good errors, a search on the error message returns many results where people get the same message but for a bunch of different reasons and where many of the search result ......

Like most people I have multiple accounts with the big three email services (Hotmail/live, gmail, yahoo). For my older Hotmail accounts, I still have the ability to use Outlook to connect to them for free. Gmail gives POP access, and reads everyone’s email, so my gmail accounts are setup in Outlook. Yahoo gives me nothing. Can you guess from the previous ......

Saw this at the latest Bay.NET user group meeting. Might as well start this blog off with something already popular. EOF ......

They all have to start someplace. So as I sit here watching Lost I finally decided to start blogging after reading thousands and thousands of blogs over the past 3 or 4 or more years Living in the Bay Area means I'm currently in the center of the web 2.0 bubble. It was great when I was searching for a new job 4 months ago. I currently work for a startup ......
