GUICE - a google framework
and i liked it from two reasons:
Firstly it seems like a very nice framework. Simple, light(!)weight
and easily understandable framework for handling dependency
can’t wait until this will become available for .NET… please say
that it will do. Please
I have a nice feeling from Google stuff - and now they are entering
the development community….
Could be good, could be good…
Although - they are now almost everywhere, and everybody seems to
love them - that makes room for doing almost anything they want.
Could be scary… so scary… :)
This is of course mega-old but here is a book tip: anyone interested in
creating good code should read
Refactoring by Martin
This is great book on a subject that really can improve your output and
code quality. As an added bonus the book is written in easy accessible
way and with just the right amount of jokes and fun woven into it.
Read it! Now!
Just wanted to drop a few CD recommendations for the summer. I don’t (actually) buy that many brass band Cd’s which make me be the more concerned with the ones I actually buy. The first one is Vienna Nights with Black Dyke Band. This is really something extra for us who like serious music for brass. Mr Philip Wilby (who has composed all tracks) has been one of the new and major voices in the brass band movement. His test pieces are loved by many and here is a small collection of four of them. The highlights for me (so far, i might add, since the pieces tend to grow on you) are Dove Descending… which is a absolutely fantastic piece. The other CD is by the Black Dyke solo euphonium David Thornton - what a player! When he first started to play with Dyke i thought he was a...
Get a life! Now!
This guy must be the most dedicated lego-builder in the world. Read the
text in the outset… get a cup of coffee and just be happy that you
have something to do. May it be just the dishes
Sandcastle or Marcus betting on the wrong horse?
I read today about Sandcastle which is Microsofts new documentation utility
for .NET Framework 2.0
finally they have created a NDoc clone. I have been wondering why
has been upgraded to support .NET 2.0 but they probably knew that
Sandcastle was coming along.
Also - i have been betting and introducing NDoc for .NET 2.0 (Alpha) in some of
my build scripts. When Sandcastle finally arrive (CTP now so
should take about a year) documentation generation will probably be done
better with Sandcastle than with NDoc Alpha.
Hopefully this will give the NDoc guys some energy to start
developing a final version for .NET 2.0. The alpha version is very good
(no problems so far for me).
I had missed this:
at his best. Heckling the schlager-genre. The most embarrassing about this is that
this song would probably have rocked at the competition. I mean that
kind of music is not really innovative and challenging…
In short - i don’t like schlagers (or whatever the word is in
but this song rocks.
Dignity - gone!
Here is a story about when my dignity was shredded. True i am afraid. This weekend the Salvation Army Congress was held here in Sweden. We played with a small band on the last meeting, which of course was way to long for my tired eyes. So afterwards i rushed to get out instruments and packing. Coming up from the basement i found a small boy (4 years maybe) pointing to a toilet saying: “He’s bleeding”. And right he was - in the toilet was another boy bleeding from his nose. A lot. Inside the toilet was also an old Salvation Army missionary women. And she was not afraid of digging in. I found her (ca 90 years mind you) wiping the floor and pinching the nose of the boy at the same time. Of course I told her that she didn’t have to do that. I took over the...
Again - the Swedish summer proved to be a very good choice for
marriage. A week and a year after Elin and I got married, Elins younger
sister did the same. Her husband (now-a-days ;)) is a very nice guy and
they were a splendid couple.
Also it again made me realize how happy i can be that have such nice
relatives and the once “added” to the family is equal nice and good to
be with. I really enjoy spending time with them.
When that is said; the weekend was quite hectic involving me driving
back-and-forth Vallentuna and Stockholm (3 Swedish
miles one way) more times than i care to remember. Also the weekend was
topped of with playing at the Salvation Army Congress here in Sweden. It
was quite fun also, but i was so tired…
Refactoring support for VB.NET
Refactoring support for VB.NET in
Visual Studio is not very good out-of-the-box.
No fear; here is a tool that introduces refactor support for VB.NET -
It also has a very funky GUI…
Get current user name and with VB.NET
I searched a while for this, actually… which is strange
since all i wanted to do is to find the current user name and the
current user domain.
It’s dead simple with the following lines:
Dim userName As String = System.Environment.UserNameDim userDomain As String = System.Environment.UserDomainName
So if you ever look for how to find the information about the current
user - here it is
