The joys of setting up a blog

Published on Tuesday, August 31, 2010 1:25:00 AM UTC in Tools

Hi and welcome to the first post of my new blog. When I thought about having a blog, I had some things in mind I wanted to blog about; however, I had no idea what the initial blog post should look like. That changed rapidly when I tried to set up my own blog engine, and so the first post will be a description of my struggles with SubText and BlogEngine.NET.

Unit test adventures - part 1

Some days ago I added a feature to an existing application, and when I was testing it, I felt that some calculations in the already existing parts of the software were wrong.

Ist es nicht herrlich, ein neues Jahr so zu beginnen, wie man noch nie zuvor ein Jahr begonnen hat? Diese schöne Tradition fortsetzend habe ich mich diesmal in mein kleines Bad gequetscht und meinen Klodeckel fotografiert.

Silverlight 3 GDR 1 (3.0.40723.0)

Published on Thursday, July 30, 2009 9:52:00 PM UTC in Programming

This evening, I was presented with an update to Silverlight by Microsoft Update ("Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB970363)"). The included text sounded more than a general feature description of Silverlight 3 than a change log.

Breaking changes in Silverlight's navigation framework

Published on Tuesday, July 14, 2009 11:08:00 AM UTC in Programming

Today I was working with a small Silverlight application that is using the new navigation feature. Basically I adapted what Tim Heuer (thank you for your great videos and posts!) shows in his tutorial here. Apparently that sample has not been updated for the final version of Silverlight 3. When you watch that video and download the sample code, you'll notice that although it will compile under Silverlight 3 RTM, running it will result in a white screen.

Taming the treeview

It seemed like a simple task. In one of our Silverlight applications, we're using the tree view control from the Silverlight Toolkit. A colleague of mine was instructed to remove all of the hover and selection effects from the tree view items. After struggling with what seemed like a five minute job for more than two hours, he gave up and came to me for advice.

Manche Wahrheiten im Leben sind geradezu unerträglich unwahr.

"Hätten Sie vielleicht fünf Minuten Zeit?" - Wenn mir eine solche Frage am Telefon begegnet, schalte ich in meinen berüchtigen Abwimmel-Modus oder lege gleich ohne jeden Kommentar auf. In diesem Fall aber glaubte ich aus der weinerlich-piepsigen Stimme meines Gesprächspartners herauszulesen, dass er seit seiner Geschlechtsumwandlung sämtliche Freunde verloren hat, und um ihm ihr eine Freude zu machen, willigte ich ein.

Ich muss es an dieser Stelle einfach mal loswerden. Mit jeder SMS, die ich in mein Handy tippe, stirbt ein kleiner Teil meines Gehirns ab. Bei jedem zweiten Wort, das ich dieser Höllenmaschine beibringen möchte, höre ich innerlich einen weiteren Geduldsfaden reißen. Mit jedem Betätigen der "Del"-Taste wächst meine Gewaltbereitschaft gegenüber Handyprogrammierern.
