Solution Wide Error Analysis - Someone is reading my blog

I blogged about ReSharpers 'Solution Wide Error Analysis' before. Unfortunately the feature was not released in the 3.0 release of ReSharper. But now it's here in the 3.1 release:

Yet another Addiction

Long ago, I realized that I am an addict. But recently I had a look at my browser and discovered yet another addiction!image

How many times is Google present? I make daily usage of iGoogle, Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Reader, Picasa, Blogger ... at least seems not to be infiltrated yet ...

Recently I seem to notice an increasing popularity of Google Code. More and more projects seem to choose it as host. Guice, Moq, FEST, testngroove, jpboodhoo ... just to name a few.

I exactly remember the first time somebody told me to use Google, and I was like "Gugl? Huh?". This was less than 10 years ago.

Should I be concerned?

This quote is from an interesting thread on Ayendes blog. As usual Ayende is quite provocative by imposing that Microsoft applied the "We'll just code-gen our way out of here!"-Tactic in Linq to SQL.

About Side-Effects



Models are forever... is a happy side-effect.

- David Laribee

This quote is from a VERY cool and visually polished presentation about Domain Driven Design. Even if it doesn't provide much technical content, the eye-candy is really great...

Alter Ego

image It is always funny to search the web with your own name.
There is definitely some strange attraction in the thought of discovering your alter ego, your private Tyler Durden.

I am quite content with my hits:
My CV on top... ok,
... Patrick will be proud to have his appearance ...
... then some references from groups and schools ...
... well, the badminton-ranking I am really not proud of ...
... then a movie ...
... then ... wait ... a movie? ...

[I have absolutely nothing to do with this. This is too political incorrect even for my taste, even though not too political incorrect to link it here]
