Unity works on my PC but not on the Server. What did I miss?
I have a web service using Microsoft Unity to hook the pieces together. It all works fine on my PC but when I put it on the web server, I receive this error message: System.ServiceModel.FaultEx... The value of the property 'type' cannot be parsed. The error is: Method 'GetClaimsForUser' in type 'WebService.Implementation.... from assembly 'WebService.Implementation, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=62cac0f1a908... does not ......

Team Foundation Installation : Part 2
After a few problems during my installation of Team Foundation Server, I was finally able to get things working properly. The solution was to remove Windows SharePoint Services from the server and allow the TFS install application to handle things. My thanks to Mickey Gousset and Etienne Tremblay for their suggestions and willingness to help me out ......

Team Foundation Server: Install Problems
If anyone out there has experience with Team Foundation Server installations, I would really appreciate some help. I am installing TFS 2008 on one server, so everything is there -- SQL, SharePoint, et. al. I have followed all of the instructions and installed all of the prerequisites. I am now ready to install Team Foundation Server. When I run through the install application, I get to the Windows SharePoint Services page. Now, I have a SharePoint installation already, so the application has disabled ......

Obtaining the right balance in life
The phrase "Work/Life Balance" has become prolific. I see this phrase used in everything from magazine articles to business training classes. While I am no expert in this balance equation, I really liked what I saw in Steve Loethen's blog the other day. It shows what balance is needed for good code development ......

Please Help: Get WCF & WIF to generate specified SAML token pattern
For the past several days I have been working on trying to build a WCF service which returns a list of assertions for a member. Because this information will be handed off to a vendor, I have to meet their requirements for how the SAML will look and be encoded. I am having all sorts of issues getting this to work! I know WCF and WIF together should help me. I had the original service built in under three hours but the encoding did not match the vendor code's expectations. Thus, I am hunting for a ......

Geek Humor

I saw this on Dr. Dobb’s Code Talk today and laughed.  Thought the geeks out there might like it too.

A programmer started to cuss
Because getting to sleep was a fuss
As he lay there in bed
Looping 'round in his head
was: while( !asleep() ) sheep++;

Taking my mouthwash
About four years ago I got my first glimpse of BizTalk. When I first saw it, I could see lots of possibilities and real potential if this tool was implemented and used properly. Roughly three years ago I began working in an environment which had a BizTalk solution built. Now, this solution relies heavily on several web sites which use HTTP post methods to do extra transformations of the messages to strings and from strings to XML. Not the best solution, in my opinion, but it works. Well, to say it ......

Problems Using ASP.NET AJAX with the AOL browser
My development group has been working on building a new web site for our company and one of the components is a rotating advertisement section on the home page. No problem, right? We decided to use AJAX, and specifically the implementation from Microsoft. The nice thing about this for us, being new to AJAX, was it fit into the .NET 2.0 framework very easily. But now I am wondering if this was the best decision. Read on, and if you have any suggestions, please let me know. What we built We have the ......

Scrum Development Group

A friend at work just told me about this good Yahoo! Group called scrumdevelopment.  I have just recently begun reviewing the group and taking advantage of the RSS feed they have.  I am learning a few things, but I hope to learn a lot more.

Take a peek and see what you think.

SQL Quandary
We were trying to identify duplicate records in our database today. In doing so, we created two statements which I thought would return the same numbers but I was wrong. First statement: select distinct count(custnbr) from useroptions Second statement: select count(distinct custnbr) from useroptions I see the difference in the syntax and now realize there is supposed to be a difference in these statements. But for the life of me, I can not understand what the SQL server is doing differently when ......
