St. Louis Day of .NET 2013
An another one has passed us by - this past weekend was the St. Louis Day of .NET, the 6th conference. It was a great event.

Also thanks to DODN's main organizers: Jeff Fattic (thanks for giving me the opportunity to present), Scott Spradlin, ......

Connect to VMWare virtual machines using Remote Desktop
Had a short training on VMWare on Tuesday, the software development department finally got the official permission (read: get a license) to use VMWare Workstation. I’m no stranger to Virtual Machines (VMs) – started playing with Virtual PC 2005 a fwe years back and I understood the general concepts of hardware virtualization. The biggest problem I have with VMs in general is the slowness; I’d rather develop directly on my PC, which is faster. Can’t say I’ve delved deep into it, but I know enough ......

Presenting for the St. Louis .NET User Group – What’s new in VS2010 and .NET 4.0
Last night I had the pleasure of presenting a session on ‘What’s new in VS2010 and .NET 4.0’ for the St. Louis .NET User Group. Got to meet with lots of people there, so greets go to all . I had fun with the session; I liked talking about new technology and it’s pretty neat to see everyone and just mingle around with people in general. Pizza was great (thanks to last night’s sponsor: Quilogy) – I have to also thank Scott Spradlin for allowing me to present to the group. The session itself has the ......

Enabling Wireless Network in Windows Server 2008
I don't have any post relating to how I get to know computers in general and why I choose a career in software development, in fact I needed to do that, since I need to continue a meme that a friend of mine forwarded to me. I'll try to do that sometime later, but suffice to say that it's quite lengthy. Because of my (yet to posted) background, I usually install stuff myself and fiddle quite a bit with computers by myself. I had installed quite a bit of Windows-based Microsoft OS, from Windows 95 ......

Displaying Rich-Formatted Text in WPF
One project was put forth that essentially requires creating a MessageBox look-alike, but the text supports rich-format, and we can do it in WPF. It's a pretty neat task, and in this post I'll focus on just the text side; the easiest way possible most probably is to just use a RichTextBox control, make it to have no border, and everything will be fine. However, I'd like to do it efficiently as well. FormattedText can be used; however it's hard to make it generic - essentially code has to be written ......

Files downloaded by IE are marked Untrusted (or why the CHM file I downloaded didn't work)
I downloaded a CHM (Windows help) file for SharpZipLib software package to be used in my test app (pretty cool - allows me to do most stuff relating to zip files), and when I open the help file, none of the information shows. Of course when I tried to open it up, Windows always asks me to verify that I wanted to open the file, with the dialog below: However, even if I do allow this, the CHM file doesn't show its contents; the IE control that should display the help contents only show that the Program ......
