So I was poking around the source code for how ASP.NET initiates session
state etc… and noticed this method of the
SessionId class. You gotta
love the naming of this one. Steve McConnell (via Code Complete) would
probably have recommended something like “IsValid” but he has no
imagination nor flair.
This is a simplified version of a sneaky bug I ran into today (I’m fine
thank you, but the bug is dead).
The only prize I can offer is a GMail
account if you want one.
I’ve resisted it, but I think I may change my primary email adress from Yahoo! to Gmail. You can probably guess what my Gmail email is…Read More
Recently my company (which was a division of Company X) was purchased by Company Y. Company Y is based outside of the country and we are a fully owned subsidiary and make up their U.S. presence.Read More

I watched DC United take on Kansas City today for the MLS Cup 2004. The great thing about soccer in the U.S. is that I can get tickets for the national championshipship the day before for a decent price. Unfortunately that’s also the problem with U.S. soccer. The quality of play is nowhere near a Premiership game or Bundesliga.Read More
I’ll come out of the closet and admit that I used to play this game with an almost fanatic interest. My first exposure to the game was in Spain when several other military brats in my apartment complex introduced me to a twenty sided die (1d20). By the time I moved to Guam, I was hooked. I started a group there with an unlikely band of friends: a Hawaiian volleyball player, half-thai skateboarder dude, heavy metal rocker, etc… and we were destroyers of worlds.Read More
So now that I have a second Windows box (and third computer in the house), I’m soliciting recommendations for good synchronization software. Ideally I’d like something where I could configure which directories and files get synchronized and it happens seamlessly any time the Tablet connects to the home network.Read More
Using NDoc I’ve generated an update version of the CHM code documentation for RSS Bandit. As you’ll see (if you take a look) this documentation is by no means complete. Many of the public methods need better documentation. Also, there are no Namespace summaries yet. I plan to spend some time adding these summaries and some higher level API documentation.Read More
Wohoo! And it is a thing of beauty. Unfortunately I’ve been crazy busy lately so I don’t have any pictures so you’ll have to settle for this stock photo.Read More
When the Olympics occurred, one of my favorite DJs spun for the opening ceremonies. Unfortunately I missed it, but I had heard good buzz about his performance. Now he’s come out with a CD called “Parade of the Athletes”. I have a feeling that if you liked the music he played for the Olympics, you’ll like this cd.Read More
Today I’ve been at my current employer for one year.Read More
