Here's a little teaser for those of you who are diabetic or who have diabetic family members. I've been chatting with a friend about his Rails-based venture, so I took a few hours this weekend and we got this working, round-trip and for real.
Here's a few choice keywords for you as a tease...ClickOnce, Mac Client also, any Glucose Meter (pluggable), Team-based Management of what's important to diabetics. Coming soon. Spread the word to your diabetic friends.
Scott Hanselman is a former professor, former Chief Architect in finance, now speaker, consultant, father, diabetic, and Microsoft employee. I am a failed stand-up comic, a cornrower, and a book author.
ClickOnce, Mac Client also
* mac? prestash user authentication info, package and send* windows? * if you have .net clr >= 2.0, redirect to the location of the ClickOnce.application * if not, redirect user to a requirements page where they can download the info and then launch the app (they will only have to do this once) * if you don't have .net clr _and_ you are running firefox, send to the requirements page, but also ask the user to install the FireFox ClickOnce extension. We take advantage of the fact that FireFox does not put the .net clr versions in the user_agent, but this extension does. So if the .net clr is there, they have the extension, and if it is not, they probably don't. (you can turn off the user_agent append in the extension, but it is on by default).
