Using .NET Sockets.

Using .NET Sockets

A brief article was just added to the .NET center of The O'Reilly Network which covers the basics of the System.Net.Sockets namespace. Defines what a socket is, explains the basics of DNS and finally touches on how data is sent and received. Not a bad article if you're new to socket programming or just new to .NET and want to get familiar with its implementation.

Also Got A Very Supportive Message From Mena Trott Re The Post Below Thanks I Think Were Cocreating The Most Exciting

Also got a very supportive message from Mena Trott re the post below. Thanks! I think we're co-creating the most exciting market in the software business today. [Scripting News]

Such modesty is wonderful to behold. If it really is the most exciting market, then what is particularly interesting is that this "exciting market" is being built with poor quality product which would not have got passed the front desk to a magazine review. It may be that this is a good thing, that the Internet is providing a market place in which maybe poor quality, but functionality very useful software can make its place - and one hopes over time become good quality.

VC firms: Be wary of patents. Venture capitalists dished out words to the wise at a conference focusing on fundraising in the high-tech industry. [CNET News.com]

Interesting that it should merit a story - that a company proposal should include making a profit - doh! But then, thats what went wrong with the so called 'New Economy'.

Using ATL Server To Build Web Services W

Using ATL Server to Build Web Services. "[W]here is the unmanaged programmer to turn [for building web services]? The answer is ATL Server. Developers familiar with conventional COM programming using Visual Studio® 6.0 and ATL 3.0 will find an extraordinarily empowering suite of tools and classes in the new ATL 7.0 library that comes with Visual Studio .NET. The classes that support such Web application development as building XML Web Services are collectively termed ATL Server. This article will explain how the C++ programmer can use the facilities available in ATL Server to develop high-performance Web Services quickly."

This is really Kirk's baby, I just helped get it dressed for public display. : ) [sellsbrothers.com: Windows Developer News]

Weird XUL Is Getting Mentioned In The Oddest

Weird.. XUL is getting mentioned in the oddest places these days. Check out these links:

MSDN - Microsoft

I can only hope that Phoenix will help more people to appreciate that XUL can perform perfectly well when
it's written well. :)
Confessions of a Mozillian]

The MSDN link is most interesting since its XUL/Thinlets/UXP in .NET, an idea I had been thinking about.

Guess What Knowledge Management Is A BuzzwordEM

Guess what: "Knowledge Management" is a buzzword. KM Nonsense. Tom Wilson has a kickass article on knowledge management in Information Research. [JOHO the Blog] [Seb's Open Research]

At last, an article that bluntly points out how utterly confused we really are.
