Sandcastle - revisted
As i wrote earlier i have tried out the CTP version of Sandcastle. And it is a CTP by which i mean that it’s not a finished product. But i looks very promising i must say. One of the things i miss in Sandcastle (CTP) is an easy integration with MSBuild so that you can rebuild your documentation as part of your continuous integration. Sandcastle in itself is a bunch of tools to be used a the command prompt and they can (but not easy) integrated. Luckily this has been done for us already, through some well-initiated sources i found an application that builds on top of Sandcastle (CTP), that fills the gap surrounding MSBuild integration. I haven’t have time to try it out yet but will sure get around to it Also - from the same source, i got an performance tip that cut the document generation time from...
Mor i skutan
This sketch is so funny - i have had
some trouble at work because of this.
But here you are - Galenskaparna - Mor i Skutan. (Will
not work well in translation)
Morning devotional - by friend of mine
This week a friend of mine, Miriam Kjellgren, is featured on a radio
show in Sweden. She is responsible for the morning devotionals in P1.
She also is one of the wisest persons i know so the programs will be
well worth listening to. You can listen to them for 30 days after
The music in between is Enfield Band playing the Light of the
World. Brass, Miriam, i am so impressed ;)
New url - http://www.marcusoft.net/
I’ve just registred, what i think is a quite good domain name:
http://www.marcusoft.net/. And the blog is now found under that
For non-techie people - here is the explanations behind the name:
My name is Marcus - marcusoft.net
I am a software developer (and mayby a soft dude too, i hope) -
I program in .NET - marcusoft.net
http://www.marcusoft.net/ is quite like another computer related
So here you are - hopefully the site will be something more than the
blog - but this is it for now.
Marcus - the model
The pictures from [last week's photo
for Avega has arrived. I'll try make them smaller in a while - these are
very big. Sorry.
I am quite happy with the outcome - just think what some editing in
PhotoShop can accomplish ;)
Baby - for real
As I’ve hinted in earlier post we are going to have a baby! In January 2008. Up to now a lot of things has been questions and guessing about how many, kind and most important health. But on Friday we went to an ultra-sonic scan and got to know a lot: There is one - there are a lot of twins in the family but that is up to another family member to handle as it seems It is a healthy person - and no we haven’t found out sex on it yet It was a quite astonishing experience - i couldn’t imagine that they move around that much. We saw leg movements, hand waves and even a full turn. I have though about gymnast but can’t figure out who of Elin and me that came from. So now we know that we can stay in our apartment for a...
NDoc is dead - long live Sandcastle?
As i written
Microsoft is plugging a documentation product called Sandcastle as a
replacement for NDoc. I was wondering were NDoc had gone
but today i found this
which explains a lot. The header of the article is quite scary “…
death of NDoc”.
I’ve tried Sandcastle today and i am not impressed:
The product is still in CTP (Community Technology
Preview) - and it shows. It is not done yet!
No good support exists (out-of-the-box) for MSBuild
integration. There are some third-party product
It is sloo-ow. At least twice the time
compared to NDoc.
I can only hope that these things will get better as the final release
arrives. Or will it be part of Visual Studio 2008 - that is my guess.
Couch in the house - finally
We have just bought a new sofa to our apartment. Or rather we bought
about two months ago but a long, long story including delay for six
weeks and delivery of part of the sofa has delayed the installation
If you like to wait and don’t wont your orders handled fast i can
recommend Folkhemmet. I’ll get back on the
quality of their furniture. Enough said!
So here is Elin taking a well deserved rest
after putting the whole thing together… I helped a little bit.
Marcus - the model?
OK - today was one of the strangest days in my working life - at least if you look on what i did… Avega is doing a makeover of our website - which, if we are honest was needed for a while. On the site the want to show some of our consultant. Also they wanted to show their hobbies and activities from outside of work. So i have been posing in my “working outfit” - that was quite a bit more formal than i usually have - and in the Salvation Army uniform and euphonium. I pictures was actually quite nice, surprisingly with me on them… Nothing naked (as IF??) and just nice pictures. I post them and a link to the pictures on the Avega - site as they are released. Also i found the whole experience quite nice - might strike up a new career here… or...
Whooa - in the next version of Visual
Studio (2008) they have put in a lot of work into the build engine. And
if we are honest the version that exists today is not
promise a lot, and a lot of good, good stuff too. I can’t wait to read
and see more about this.
