#3 − Got it

Marc

You’re right. Didn’t thougt about just removing a aspect and adding your own implementation. Way easier then using a IoC container.

I don’t like passing around the container anyway as it hides code-dependencies. I once was told folks even call it an anti-pattern. Eg this guy: http://blog.ploeh.dk/2010/02/03/ServiceLocatorisanAnti-Pattern/

#1 − Nice article but …

Marc (updated by Marc)

… what about replacing the aspect implementation with another one? DI came in my mind when reading this article. What about using a IoC container for construction? Maybe with constructor injection?

Cheers, Marc

#1 − Nice post!

#1 − Sounds familiar

Marc

ASP.Net 5 (aka vNext) does some parts very similar. See here …

#1 − Ports

Marc

Number of ports: Don’t forget the port-replicators aka Docking-Station. Depending on the notebook model you are using you can get a docking-station for that. Depending on that docking-station you are using you get more ports then on the notebook itself. As you docking-station normally is there where your big screens are, they are connected to docking-station. So ports of the docking-station count too.

VGA: I use it often when on customer site and get “a screen” (if I am lucky a 24", sometimes smaller). Most of the time the customer IT have only VGA-cables or maaaaaybe a DVI (which I can’t plug into my Lenovo notebook) at hand. No display-port-* cables. So I still need a VGA port these days ;-(

#1 − Numbers

Some numbers I heard yesterday by Swiss national radio station about the current conflict: 3 dead Israelis vs. 170 dead Palestine.

Nice article, dude. Interesting what Google tries to achieve with this all? Reducing browsers? Hmm… don’t think so as you already wrote they all (except one but this one is not of question) are acceptable in compatibility. Maybe a kind of “cover my ass” because they don’t test with Opera? But blocking then is really hard. Hmm….

First I would try deleting ALL compiled binaries in all bin and obj directories (for all your projects). Then do a rebuild and maybe restart VS.

We created Windows batchfiles to do this when VS bot in trouble again.

#1 − 7.17 Sample 2

Marc

In this sample the Where() could be replaced with a TypeOf<>() I guess. But yes, I got the point ;-)

I am just listening to a phonecall my colleague has with a customer. Seems the customer did not read this blog yet.

#1 − True

Marc

I know not only a few but a actually a lot of young people here in Switzerland that do not accept these regulations once more from America and therefore say, they will not travel to the US any more and telling me that America is kind of an “unwanted country”. They have the mindset that America is on one’s high horse. So I think as well this will have major drawbacks to the U.S. over the time. The reputation of the U.S. already not the best and getting worst for not only a few people here.

The whole situation in the U.S. with so called “Security Issues” (what clearly solves non of these security issues but sounds like they do something against terrorism; in the world of IT this concept is called “Security by obsurity”) reminds me to some Hollywood movies. Do you remember “Equilibrium” or “Brazil”? Think America is moving fast into this direction…

Nicely written article. I thought exactly the same. A non-geek will probably never click that arrow button. Even I read the hint / tool tip first before I clicked on that ominous little button. So it really is the hidden-geek-option-button normal users don’t care about.

Actually I am searching a lot for things in Vista but most of the time it helps if you just ask yourself “What would I like to do?”. It seems Microsoft spent a lot of thought simplify the whole system and therefore moved quite a lot of options to new places or combined it with other options and so on.

AND: badly they did not yet remove the “Classic Windows Look and Feel” yet :’( I hoped they will remove this fancy old gray user interface with Vista but it is still there. So also more then 10 years after this operating system we still will see the Win95 interface as a lot of IT staff I know by default switches back to this old interface. Maybe they don’t like to learn new stuff ;-) Think I now have to take cover because of the Win96-geek-readers here :-)))

Over and out,
Marc

#1 − just to get sure

Marc

hi marco,

just to get things the right way (as i don’t know java very well):

is this wildcard-thing the same as the “WHERE” in C# 2?

For example:

public class A
where MYTYPE : MYBASETYPE, new
{

}

have to try your examples above in the c# and see if i get this working as well as it looks like a nice exercise for rainy weekends like this ;-)

cheers, marc

#1 − Wow − didn’t know these numbers

Marc

And don’t speek but shout − specially to your boss. Pre- and postfix everything with “Sir”. That’s a basic too :-)

#1 − Nice features

Marc

i already had a look to this movie some months ago. my first impression was “oh, looks nice but will it be usefull?”. after some thinking about it i would like to get this new version asap. think this ideas will be interesting for other applications as well.

the “bad thing” is that microsoft once more did their own thing for the toolbar-system. now, where they are shiping their current toolbar-system with .net 2.0 they just started to use another system once more so component-writers can do business once copy the microsoft style. the race is started once more :-)
