  • Limiting time for Discovery Part II

    Previously , I had thought I found a way to speed up discovery by limiting the search time. It turns out that there are better ways to achieve the same goal. When limiting duration, you are trying to find all endpoints implementing a given contract within...
  • First Experiences with WS-Discovery

    I was digging into WCF’s implementation of WS-Discovery today and was somewhat appalled by how long it took to discover a service from a client when both endpoints lived on the same machine. I setup tracing and message logging to dig into why things...
  • How Office Automation Saved my Morning

    I had procrastinated on mailing out information for the Chicago Give Camp. I wanted to make sure the email went out early in the week and in the morning so that people would probably read it. This morning, I was determined to get the mailing out. I started...
  • Unit Tests in F#

    In the F# community, I have seen a lot of talk about how cool functional programming is, how to use continuations, monads, and so on. I haven’t seen much about using F# for unit testing how to unit test F# code. I’ve been particularly interested in unit...

  • Visual Studio 2010 Beta-->RC install and ASP.NET

    I installed the VS 2010 RC last night, after uninstalling the VS 2010 Beta. If you see that ASP.NET isn’t coming up/working on your machine, you may need to remap the ASP.NET handlers into IIS. To do that, go to the Microsoft.NET 4.0 folder on your...
  • DataContract, Partial Types and Generated Code

    The other day, a friend had an issue with a DataContract . He had an Entity Model that used DataContract serialization. The code, stripped down to its essence, had something like this: [DataContract] public partial class SomeClass { [DataMember] public...

  • Greatest Prime Factor in F#

    Today I was reading an article in The Onion, Conquerors You May Have Missed , and noticed that the number for the ant looked like it might be a big old prime, or at least have a large prime divisor. (For reference, the ant is # 43,168,974,563,247.) There...
