I am working on some code
using the Model View
pattern for an article I am writing. I am using an event based approach
based on the work that Fowler did. For the sake of this discussion, here
is an example of a simplified view interface.
This is the blog of a
chap who is riding a
teched out motorcycle computer (which he calls his “motocompy”) from San
Diego to my homestate Alaska. I helped him get his
Subtext blog setup so he can
blog the entire trip.
Today I ran across
some code in a 3rd party open source library that used the following
function in order to retrieve the form id.
If you are hosting multiple blogs on a single installation of Subtext,
the recent Subtext 1.5 release unfortunately introduces a security bug
that will allow an admin of one blog to login to another blog. The fix
has already been posted to
as part of the Subtext 1.5.1 release.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: There was a security bug in Subtext 1.5 for multiblog
setups that will allow the admin of one blog to login to another blog.
If you are only using a single blog setup, you have nothing to worry
about. For multiblog setups, please upgrade to Subtext 1.5.1. The change
is a single line change in
Subtext.Framework.dll so if you have
already upgraded to Subtext 1.5, you can simply copy over the old
Subtext.Framework.dll file with the new one instead of copying every
file from the installation package. Sorry for the the inconvenience.
In the Subtext 1.5 release announcement, I mentioned we had a few new
skins. I thought I would post a couple of screenshots of the Submarine
skin to give you a sense of what it looks like.
Found a useful nugget in Richter’s recent CLR via
book I want to share with you. But first some background.
As you may well know, today is June 6, 2006 or in shorthand notation
6/6/06, the mark of the beast. As the church lady would say, “mmmmm,
isn’t that special?”
If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know that I am a fan
of the MbUnit generative unit test
a site named
DotNetKicks which is
like Digg.com, but targetted to .NET
technology. In particular I thought it was a smart move for them to
share in their advertising revenue with those who submit stories.
I recently learned about
DotNetKicks due to a
referral in my referrer logs. It is essentially a
Digg knockoff, but tightly focused on the
.NET community, which makes it a nice complement to Digg.
