My seventy-eighth podcast is up. In this show, Carl and I talk about this year's Ultimate Developer and Power Users Tool List.

Links from the Show

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Telerik is our sponsor for this show.

Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

Maybe I missed it when I was looking through your tools list, but do you have a good tool for reviewing IIS Logs? I have developed a need to be able to analyze different production logs to see if I can locate network or performance problems, but I have not been able to find a great tool to do this. Currently I have build a GUI ontop of the Microsoft Log parser, but I was wondering if you happened to have a particular tool that you like to parse IIS logs.

Re Scott's TextPad rant about having to use F5 to find text instead of Ctl F: under Configure->Preferences select Microsoft Applications in the Keystroke compatibility dropdown. This gives you, among other things, Ctl F and Ctl H just as you would expect for searching and replacing.
