I suck at writing...

You've probably already relaised this :-) But I'm in the process of writing my first article on .NET for future publication to this site. It's an article about using nested repeaters bound on to a DataSet with a relation. I'm trying to make it a simple as possible but it's really tough to get the level ...

The one half decent picture I've ever taken...

It's easter sunday and I got to thinking about my family - my nephews will currently be feeling ill with severe chocolate overdose... So thought I'd upload the one good picture I ever took. Click for the HUGE version...It's a picture of my nephew Barry, taken last summer ...

The Zone

What is 'The Zone' - is it a form of the trance autistic people sometimes experience. Do hairdressers have a 'Styling Zone'. I love it, it's Zen like (I practise ZaZen meditation or at least the dumbed down self-help form). 'The Zone' is a place you can reach while coding where your brain starts working at a pace and with concentration that you rarely experience. It's relaxing, you can work an eight hour day, get home and feel more refreshed than when you...

Science

I trained as a Scientist...psychologists are kind of paranoid about being strictly scientific since it used to be an 'art' - so now all psychologists applyt scientific method with some rigour. Science is an odd creature and many scientists define themselves as being the opposite of religious people. I've always seen science as just another religion...a way to explain what people see ...

Microsoft Interviews

Just read this article about a Microsoft interview. I also had an interview for a job at Microsoft a few years ago now (in my case, a PM job in one of the server groups). I met Mark Anders in the book shop at the 1999 ASP professional conference in Islington,...

Woody Allen

Just finished watching Antz...what's remarkable about that film is how much it's a Woody Allen film...are the people who did Antz the same as the Shrek people? I guess it happned with Shrek too, that was basically a Mike Myers film.<br/> Anyway, I'm also reading Woody Allen the complete prose at the moment (see the bottom for the link). he is really surreal and funny, I always got the funny, but I'm just starting to get the surreal.

.NET articles

I'm currently in the planning stages of several .NET articles - so my question is, what would you most like to know? I do plan to write an article on the use of Nested Repeaters with DataSets with internal relations, and an article on T-SQL based ultra-efficient paging (and I apologise, when I say T-SQL it always refers to Sql Server). My main interests lie in high-performance, highly scalable and easily maintainable architectures for Web applications. I also have an interest in encryption and security when applied to web based apps (I used to do a lot of security consultancy and...

This site's primary reson for being is so I can share stuff I discover in .NET, this could be articles my friends and I , links to decent .NET sites and book reviews (I have a book addiction and read ...

Hello...is this thing on...???

It's Friday night, at home and bored again. So, anyone reading this thing? Well, guess I'd better explain who I am if you are...I'm a 6ft 3in 20 stone Scottish male who lives alone in the centre of Edinburgh, Scotland. Haven't settled on a career yet...
