• Firefox extensions in Visual Studio.NET

    I’ve had a go once or twice to write an extension for Firefox (Broken link, was originally www.spreadfirefox.com/?q=affiliates&id=91129&t=89), and found the whole process a bit involved.

    What I’d like to see is someone write an add-in for Visual Studio.NET that would help with this process.

    I’m not even sure if this is all possible, and how easy it would be. Some of the things I would like to see are:

    • Javascript language support
    • Intellisense when using XPCOM objects
    • Automated jar building

  • Mailinator:Spam Map

    I was only reading in The Australian yesterday about websites (“Mash-ups”) that combine services from a number of other websites.

    I found a reference to Mailinator on The Register today. It’s a page that maps incoming spam against the source IP address and uses Google Maps to generate a geographical map of where the spam is coming from. Makes you wonder how else you could make use of this kind of info.

  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 E-Learning

    Microsoft have made a number of their e-learning courses for Visual Studio 2005 available for free until November 8th.Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 E-Learning.

    Sadly, the pages don’t work very well with FireFox, so you’ll need to use IE to get to the content.
