.Text, Open Source Projects, and other tidbits

The group of developers using .Text, customizing it, etc. is a pretty small and tight-knit community. I have learned a lot recently. It has been exciting to be involved with the goings-on (solutions to stop comment spam, etc) and the evident pleas...


RSS Aggregators - NewsGator, FeedDemon

I use NewsGator's Outlook plug-in to aggregate RSS feeds I want to keep track of. It's easy for me because it puts everything inside Outlook, which I already have open 25 hours of every day. I really like NewsGator. I like how it adds right-click...

More accessing controls inside a repeater using database id field stored in ViewState

New version of Digger Solutions Newsletter coming out soon.

Over the last few days I have taken a break from porting my intranet application from ASP to ASP.NET to do the same with my newsletter application. I decided to take a detour from the intranet because it is just simply becoming tiring. I hadn't...
