CodeRush and Visual Studio 2005

You may notice, when installing VS.NET 2005 that it's a little "greedy" and automatically imports all of your VS.NET 2003 addins. This confuses CodeRush which uses different hooks into 2003 vs. 2005 but can be easily fixed by uninstalling and reinstalling CodeRush. CodeRush will then detect BOTH 2003 and 2005 and work with both.

ASP.NET 2.0 Professional is shipping

ASP.NET 2.0 Professional is shipping! Right along with the release of .NET 2.0 comes our little tome. Jim Minatel, our editor, beat me to blogging it. Big ups to Bill "The Architect (and lead author)" Evjen. A lot of work went into it, and I hope it doesn't suck.

Thanks to those of you who emailed me wondering when the hell your book was going to ship! :)

Windows Live - I just don't get it.

LameliveIs it just me? Perhaps I'm just old (in web years) or did the web just get WAY more complicated than it needs to be? There's msn.com, there's MSN Messenger, there's Windows Messenger, there's Office Communicator, there's Hotmail, yada yada yada.

Tell me that this: http://ideas.live.com/ isn't going to confuse folks even more?

Why does Microsoft feel the need to release Yet Another Web Portal?

  • Live Mail = GMail
  • Live Favorites = del.icio.us
  • Live Safety Center = McAfee, et. al.
  • OneCare = ibid.
  • Live Messenger = Skype
  • Live = Google

P.S. The fact that http://www.live.com looks considerably different in my build of Firefox is really unfortunate given that everyone else seems to manage cross-browser at this point in the game.

P.P.S. Note the search on Live.com for "Hanselman" yields a #1 result for my old blog from 3 years ago. A blog I haven't updated in I don't know how long. Results #2 and #3 are for, some reason, sub-categories of my current blog.

P.P.P.S. Patrick says, "Ah, like My Yahoo. Welcome to 1996."

P.P.P.P.S. I typed in "PDX," the airport code for Portland Airport into the Weather Gadget and got Vancouver, WA. Stunning.

Reflector Plus Plus - AddIns, IronPython and other Peli Goodness

Jonathan "Peli" de Halleux is the geek of the week, IMHO. He's updated Reflector.Framework, Reflector.CodeMetrics and Reflector.Graph for the latest (4.1.85.0) version of Reflector. (If you're running Reflector and it's not updating itself, go Help|Check For Updates.)

Surely you've heard of Reflector, and use it daily! But if you haven't heard, Peli's add-ins add Code Metrics, Dependency Graph Analysis and a framework for new add-ins. (Note it requires IronPython)

So, go get:

And watch for an upcoming release (tomorrow?) that will disassemble code into Reflection.Emit statements and maybe to IronPython! Thanks Peli!
