April 2004 - Posts
I did a lot of catching up on blogs, as SharpReader wouldn't load up anymore a couple of weeks ago. I asked Luke what happened, as the log said some dates in my cache documents were screwed up. Didn't got a response, so I copied all rss url's and subscribed again. Too bad I lost a lot of history! :( Anyway, I first read a post from Alex Thissen
that there's a webcast online on ObjectSpaces and I thought I should see it. Then I found a webcast on Test Driven Development (TDD)
which I'm curious about and finally post on Robert McLaws blog
about Visual Studio 2005 and him playing around with Whitehorse. I wasn't sure if I wanted to take up VS2005 but I didn't know that Whitehorse was included! I'm very curious about this new product! So tonight, while downloading VS2005 I'm going to watch those webcasts, if my daughter Emma will let me! ;) Once I played with it a bit, I'll come back on it again, right here.
Robert McLaws released Visual Blogger 2004
and as far as I can tell, it's especially
written for .Text, the blogging engine we at Sphear use. I tried several other
tools, but as all worked with posting new items, editting and re-uploading the
item always failed. Also the categories weren't always implemented very well...
I hope VB2004 can do this all. I'll download it once I get home. As I said
before, not having internet at work sucks, big time! :)

Got the hint from Steve Eichert, although I have no idea why I'm doing this. But for fun, who cares? It's been a while since I blogged, being at a client with no internet connection (for me). For the client this is probably best, for me it's the worst thing that can happen! ;-)
Now we've got the weblogs and my website is about to be completed and to be released, I've been thinking about registering a domainname. The only problem is, people find Sphear a difficult name, especially when you want them to type the url in their browser and they've never seen the name 'Sphear' in writing.
Now my question is, does anybody now of a good name? I prefer Dutch, as my personal website is going to be in Dutch, but it's not mandatory.
By the way, I thought of 'sfeer.nl' but it was already registered by a company who was offering the name for sale. Yeah, sure, as if...
If you can think of a cool and easy name, let me know!
For a few of my collegues, probably the first time they heard of intercepting methods by proxies was when the main developer of our E-Platform explained the communication BUS in this platform. I just noticed a link on asp.net which contains a very basic and very easily understandable example on how to use these proxies.
With proxies intercepting methods calls, you can transform the data transported, verify if a user is authorized to call the method and much more. You can find the example here.
