CLVY Planned!

Monday, 14 November 2005

Happened to browse the Internode ADSL2+ coverage table, not expecting too much, but hang on a tick, that would be my local exchange listed!

So sometime next year, we might be moving up in the world.

I'll stick with my trusty Billion 711CE for the meantime, but at some stage I might invest in a nice new ADSL2+ device, maybe with one of those new-fangled wireless doo-hickies, and throw in a central splitter to boot :-)

Problems with webresource.axd

Thursday, 3 November 2005

I've been trying to make use of a new ASP.NET 2.0 feature - embeded resources using the special HTTPHandler webresource.axd.

But looks like I'm not the only one who can't get it to work. Talk about frustrating! This should be a really nice way to embed client javascript files. Maybe I'm missing something really obvious but I can't even get the workaround to work either.

Option Strict On for ASP.NET 2.0 Web Sites written in Visual Basic

Monday, 24 October 2005

I discovered today that the project properties for VB ASP.NET projects in Visual Studio 2005 are pretty lacking - including no option to enable/disable Option Strict. A workaround is posted here.

10 short years

Friday, 21 October 2005

On Wednesday, I was privileged to attend a "10 Year Awards Presentation Ceremony", honouring a number of staff from the FLC and SAS who have been with UniSA for 10 years or more.

I and one of my Managers - Ian Reid, were amongst the recipients, having both commenced here in 1995.

It was quite interesting to hear the speeches about each person, and I was most pleasantly surprised by what our Director, Prof. Bruce King said about me.
