New P-51

Yesterday I finished building a new P-51 Mustang. We suffered torrential rains this weekend in Tennessee, but I managed to squeeze a test flight in between rain storms. Here’s a shot of the new bird sitting on the runway. I had the cowl removed so I could tune the engine. Click the picture to enlarge and…

WPF Talent Needed, Too

Everything I said about ASP.NET and Atlas in my previous blog post applies to WPF, too. We need a person with a passion for and deep knowledge of WPF to deliver training classes, perform consulting work, and do content development. Even if you’re not that person but you know someone who might be, let us…

ASP.NET Talent Needed

We are busting at the seams with work and working crazy hours trying to meet demand. I’m looking for an ASP.NET person to hire on full-time at Wintellect and help me deal with all the training and consulting requests that are pouring in. Job duties would include, in the following order: 1) Delivering 3- and…

Looking for Great Consultants and Trainers

Business is going great at Wintellect for both consulting and training. Consequently, we have run out of all the people we know and need to start looking outside our circle for more. I thought it might be a good idea to go directly to our blog readers to see if any of you are interested…

Stream Video to XBox 360?

I was disappointed to learn that my son’s XBox 360 can grab music and pictures from my Windows XP PC, but it can only stream video from a Windows Media Center Edition (MCE) PC. I downloaded and installed Windows Media Player 11 Beta 2 because the Microsoft Web site says it can stream video from…

Goodbye TiVo, Hello Moxi

I’ve been away from the blog for a while. In July I was heads-down on a super-intense consulting project, and in August I was on the road: New York City, Oregon, Redmond, and then South Bend, IN. I’m finally home for a short while and have a few cycles to spare (but only a few).…

New WinDBG Posted

Grab the new WinDBG while it’s fresh. I was told they were going to include the Source Server tools for Team Foundation System, but I don’t see them in either the x64 or x86 installations. Also, it looks like CVS support isn’t included any more. At least those of you using SourceSafe, Perforce, and Subversion…

Perfect Source Everytime You Debug

Do you want to know how to get the exact version of the source file when live debugging or reading minidumps? My Bugslayer column, which was turned into an article, on Source Server has finally made it to the August 2006 issue of MSDN Magazine! They even kept my super cool title: Use the Source, Luke.…

CrashFinder 2.55: A Bug Fix and x64 Support!

Thanks to Dave Scherer who reported a problem in CrashFinder where the 32-bit version running on x64 wasn’t properly handling the WOW64 version of NTDLL.DLL because it is missing the import table. In doing the fix I figured it was the time to produce an x64 version of CrashFinder. Download the code here. As always, let…

The ASP.NET Follies

I’ve been wanting to write an article for some time now on the common mistakes that ASP.NET developers make. MSDN Magazine provided me with a forum, and the article, entitled Web App Follies, appears in the current issue. Check it out and make sure you’re not guilty of any of the foibles described in the…
