Recent command list. Here's something nifty that I recently (and accidently) found out. If you're in a console window hitting the F7 key... [kilic.net]

Holy Crap! Feels like 4DOS!

HOW TO: Know when Microsoft has posted new "how to" or KB articles on your favorite technology:
Sign up for kbAlertz, which is run by the ever popular Dave Wanta (who also runs 123aspx.com).  It will send you an e-mail whenever Microsoft posts a new KB on the technologies that you care about. 
BTW, they just dumped in a ton of new .NET related how-to articles.  I've set up a page to list them.

Great Page, but give me an RSS Feed...I get enough email ;)

Microsoft Download Center RSS Feed

Useful RSS feed. Just a quick note to mention a new RSS feed that some of you might like to subscribe to: the folks over at ThunderMain Ltd have started preparing a feed of the Microsoft Download Center files.  Always nice to be able to stop visiting a Web site when all I want to know is whether there's anything new. [Larkware News]

Fantastically useful...I love this kind of data aggregation.  Lately we've been adding RSS feeds for anything and everything that is useful....Bug Reports, Product Updates, News within our Vertical (eFinance), etc.  Aggregating via RSS (and with a glorious tool such as NewsGator) is a much more compelling model than the promises of Digital Dashboards of the late 90s.  I was all over the Digital Dashboard as a concept, but the UI needed work and the aggregated data needed structure.  With RSS and NewsGator, I have both.  Using ASP.NET, aggresive use of the @Page Caching attribute and about 20 minutes and I can RSS just about anything. Woohoo!

Detailing Failed Assembly Loads with the Assembly Binding Log Viewer ("The Fusion Logger")

January 20, '03 Comments [0] Posted in Web Services | Bugs | Tools

Fuslogvw.exe is included with the Windows .NET Framework and reports how the CLR is loading your assembly and its dependencies (certainly useful for debugging version redirects etc.). By default it logs only failures but to log successful loads just change the registry key at HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion\ForceLog  to 1.
