The Daily WTF: Curious Perversions in Information Technology There is no question that, in the right situation, Ruby on Rails is a great productivity multiplier. An anti-TDWTF, if you will. When used correctly, a highly-quality web site can be created with much great speed than more traditional coding methods. Still, as Frederik was well aware, not every Ruby application is created equal.

Bing Maps is an online mapping service that enables users to search, discover, explore, plan, and share information about specific locations.

Today we released updates to the Microsoft Virtual Earth AJAX control and a new version of the Virtual Earth 3D map control. We’ve added a couple new methods for adding and removing pins (and DIVs) in the AJAX control; added performance improvements for AJAX and 3D; enhanced geocoding and parsing across the board (AJAX and Virtual Earth Web Service) and fixed a few bugs in the AJAX and 3D controls. There are lots of architectural changes behind the scenes that you won’t appreciate unless you’re inside Microsoft, so I will spare you the details of those. Now, that being said, for the AJAX map control we just upgraded Version 6.2, so you already have access to the new features and can start using them today without changing your link to Virtual Earth.

4 Tips for using Log4NET's ADONetAppender in ASP.NET I'm using Log4NET for almost a year now, and I must say I'm very pleased with it. This logging framework is very easy to learn and extend; same goes for installation and configuration. The most commonly used log4net appender is probably the ADONetAppender (look at Ryan's post for an easy walkthrough to set this up). However, I spent a couple of hours getting the ADONetAppender working the way I want. 4 Tips for using Log4NET's ADONetAppender in ASP.NET - Dr. 4 Tips for using Log4NET's ADONetAppender in ASP.NET - Dr.
ASP.NET 2.0 has greatly improved the tools and functionality to create localized applications. One of the new key components is the introduction of a provider model for resource localization that makes it possible to use resources from sources other than ..Resx files. In this article I’ll describe how ASP.NET Resource Providers work and how you can create a custom provider. As a practical example I’ll show you how I built a data-driven provider along with a fairly rich ASP.NET front end application that allows editing of resources at runtime in a context sensitive fashion against the live application. This article assumes that you’re somewhat familiar with the new ASP.NET 2.0 localization features.
Notes on “TCP/IP Illustrated” Version 8 (with changes noted)
The boss of a successful US hedge fund has quit the industry with an extraordinary farewell letter dismissing his rivals as over-privileged "idiots" and thanking "stupid" traders for making him rich. Andrew Lahde's $80m Los Angeles-based firm Lahde Capital Management made a huge return last year by betting against subprime mortgages. Yesterday the 37-year-old told his clients that he had hated the business and had only been in it for the money. And after declaring he would no longer manage money for other people, because he had enough of his own, Lahde said that instead he intended to repair his stress-damaged health; he made it clear he would not miss the financial world. "The low-hanging fruit, ie idiots whose parents paid for prep school, Yale and then the Harvard MBA, was there for the taking," he wrote. So long, suckers. Millionaire hedge fund boss thanks 'idiot
Music Created by Learning Computer Getting Better | Singularity David Cope has created Emily Howell, an artificial composer that learns from criticism. Like many composers, Emily Howell has her own unique style that she refines constantly. She’ll listen to what critics have to say about her work and then try to write music that is good enough to silence those critiques. Aiming for musical perfection is a very human endeavor, but Emily Howell isn’t a human composer at all.
