CSS Question: Two Backgrounds on the Same Element?
As part of my site’s redesign, I wanted to keep the drop shadow effect on the left and right borders of my main content area. No problem I naively thought, I’ll simply add two background elements to the main div. I named the div “background” like so:Read More

Reporting Back With 2GB RAM
Ok, I’m in nerdvana. I got my 2 x 1GB PC 3200 DDR 400 cards today and my machine is noticeably snappier today. On a lark, I decided to open every application on my machine just for kicks. Ok, maybe not. But doing DotNetNuke development is no longer a pain for me.Read More

Visual Studio.NET New Project Template Folders
I’m sure you’re constantly asking yourself this, because I certainly wake up every morning in a cold sweat wondering. When you add a new project in Visual Studio.NET 2003 (friends call her VS.NET), you get the following dialogRead More
I will neither confirm nor deny that this is where I used to work before going independent. I’ll only say that they’ll be doing some interesting work with .NET and it’s worth checking out.Read More

VS.NET Web Development Is a Memory Hog. 2GB or Not 2GB (i.e. 1GB)?
I’ve been playing with DotNetNuke at home and after an hour or two, VS.NET 2003 is typically using up around 150 to 200 MB of RAM as well as 200 MB of virtual memory. Web development on VS.NET is a big memory hog when the project size gets large enough.Read More

ReSharper Return to Intended Price
ReSharper is no longer going to be the super bargain it currently is as they are raising the price. Even at $149, it’s a worthwhile product. But if you see yourself doing development with VS.NET 2003 for a long while (and don’t kid yourself, you will be), I highly recommend giving this product a twirl.Read More
