Virtual Earth, An Evangelist's Blog : Virtual Earth API Release. 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. Virtual Earth Gallery.

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.

Music Created by Learning Computer Getting Better

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. She is a computer program designed by composer, programmer, and author David Cope. A retired professor of music at the University of California Santa Cruz, Cope has spent almost 30 years at the forefront of synthetically composed music.

The problem was that we could set a breakpoint in Visual Studio 2005 but for whatever reason, the breakpoint was not getting hit and the page would load as if we had done a "Run without debugging". So prashant was pinging me on Instant Messenger and I was throwing out a lot of support articles and voice columns etc out to him and saying "Go check this", "Go Check that" etc and he was getting no where towards a resolution.

The message that the customer was seeing in Visual Studio 2005 looked like the following. Surprisingly when we created a brand new website it still showed the same problem. Why can't I debug from Visual Studio 2005 after installing. Formatting the Windows Forms DataGrid Control in Visual Basic.
