Starting again, and some other ideas

Thu, 11 Sep 2008 07:10:06 +0000

It’s been awhile since this blog was last really active. I’m still getting comment spam, but that’s already become a “normal” thing for most bloggers these days. Have been doing a bit of reflection in regards to the future direction of my blogging. For a brief moment I did consider just leaving this place to … Continue reading "Starting again, and some other ideas"

Fixing Visual Studio’s System.OutOfMemoryException

Fri, 27 Jun 2008 01:32:44 +0000

Over the last little while Visual Studio 2005 has been crashing seemingly “randomly”.

Tue, 01 Apr 2008 06:09:21 +0000

A few days ago I looked at various solutions to enhance an exhisting DataList control at work. The DataList brings back a fair bit of data from several different tables and seemed a bit bloated. The first solution I looked at was data paging and only showing rows as needed. The DataList doesn’t come with … Continue reading "Paging the DataList"

The IE Team have just announced the availability of Beta 1 of IE8 for developers. You can read more about that on their blog.

Would like to wish one and all a very Happy Chinese New Year. Xin Nian Kuai Le (or in Cantonese: Sun Nin Fai Lok). Wishing you a safe and prosperous year ahead.  Wow, it’s the year of the rat this year!

Using Reports locally in ASP.NET 2.0

Fri, 01 Feb 2008 00:34:04 +0000

I was asked recently to develop reports for an internal ASP.NET app, after doing some research found that the best solution was to use the ASP.NET ReportViewer control set in LocalMode.

I’ve just posted a bunch of photos from Code Camp OZ 200 to Flickr. Just follow this link for more photos. I’ll post a recap later. Keep in mind though, I’ve only got photos for day 1 and not day 2 of Code Camp. Decided not to take any photos on day 2.
