ProfileCommon nogo with WAP - get WebProfile Generator

Don’t spend several hours of your precious late-night development time, like me, trying to figure out why the hell your Visual Studio does not work the way Scott Mitchell’s does : “After defining your Profile properties, the ASP.NET engine…

Book Review The Non-Designers Web Book

Book Review The Non-Designers Web Book

Unfortunately I didn’t like The Non-Designer’s Web Book by Robin Williams and John Tollett as much as I liked the last book that I reviewed . It’s not that it is a bad book in any way, it’s just that it wasn’t what I expected. Based on the title…

Play Up, Boise State Broncos!

Wow! Wow!  What an amazing game the 2007 Tostito’s Fiesta Bowl turned out to be. It was one of the best, if not the best, college football games that I have ever seen. How often do you get to see a successful Hook-n-Ladder play and a successful…
