Complex Databinding

I just finished writing some ASP.NET code where I also typed the following lines:  <ItemTemplate> <asp:Image ID="IsOnline" runat="server" ImageUrl='<%# GetImageUrl((MembershipUser)Container.DataItem) %>' /> </ItemTemplate> ... protected string GetImageUrl(MembershipUser user) { if (user.IsLockedOut) { return "~/images/BadUser.gif"; } else if (!user.IsApproved) { return "~/images/GreyUser.gif"; } else if (user.IsOnline) { return "~/images/OnlineUser.gif"; } else { return "~/images/OfflineUser.gif"; } } Before I shutdown my machine I fetchted Mail and Feeds when i ran accross this posting by ScottGu pointing to Fritz Onions Blog. ;-)

Friday Night Andreas Hoffmann 2nd Lead Of The VfLNiederRhein User Group Picked Me Up Ad We Drove The Long Way Down To The

Friday night Andreas Hoffmann (2nd lead of the VfL-NiederRhein user group) picked me up ad we drove the long way down to the south.   Our destination for Saturday morning was the “Chaostage” event of the .NET user group Deggendorf  ( I had a session “Introducing the concepts and architecture of ASP.NET“ in the morning and a second one “Hello WebServices – Message-Oriented Programming for distributed systems” in the evening. We checked in at our hotel in Garching (I won’t tell the name but I’ll tell you a bit about the worst service). Because the waitress served me frozen potatoes with my steak I stood up and walked over to the bar. Just in this moment a voice behind me asked “Is this a codezone keychain? Are you gonna be at Microsoft on Monday?” It was Nicki Wruck ( the organizer of the ICE 2005 Community together with Frank Solinske ( IT-Pro Security Guru. Only one nano-second later we drank the first beer together. The geek meet was so exciting that I was just about to forget the bad service of our hotel J Sunday we fetched Stephan Oetzel ( in Poing. We picked up Michael Willers ( Developer Security Guru from the Airport to merge the Security guys in the “Hofbräukeller”. Uwe Baumann ( discussed about technical stuff with Andreas and me meanwhile. Later Nicki joined us together with Nico Lüdemann ( and Carola Helfert ( Monday - Launch Day – started with the Community GetTogether. Stephan and Andreas and I presented the results of the .NET Summit NRW (our community event). As always the time to do some “networking” was toooooooo short - even if we had at least the day before to talk to a few guys. The Launch Party was great. Steve Balmer’s Launch talk was transmitted per satellite into the Lobby of Microsoft in Germany – Great. The only problem again: So many people and such a small amount of time :-) 

Cool Tool: Cassini here power toy

[...]The .NET Framework 2.0 comes with a built-in webserver, based on the old Cassini web server. So I wanted to be able to easily set up any directory to have its contents served up on an as-needed basis. The result is an addition to the Windows Explorer right-click menu...[Robert McLaws] Chris Fraizer wrote it thgether in a small app. Here is my version with a few modifications: using System; using System.IO; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Diagnostics; using System.Windows.Forms; using System.Text; using System.Runtime.InteropServices;   namespace WebServerHere {     class Program     {         static void Main(string[] args)         {             if (args.Length >= 1)             {                 string _path;                   string _command =                     Path.Combine(                     RuntimeEnvironment.GetRuntimeDirectory(),                     "WebDev.WebServer.EXE");                   StringBuilder _commandArgs = new StringBuilder();                   Random _r = new Random();                   string _port = _r.Next(1024, 9000).ToString();                   if (args.Length == 2)                 {                     _port = args[1];                 }                     //grab the original path                 _path = args[0];                   _commandArgs.Append(" /path:\"");                 _commandArgs.Append(_path);                 _commandArgs.Append("\"");                 _commandArgs.Append(" /port:");                 _commandArgs.Append(_port);                 _commandArgs.Append(" /vpath: \"/");                 _commandArgs.Append(_path.Substring(                     _path.LastIndexOf('\\') + 1));                 _commandArgs.Append("\"");                   ProcessStartInfo _info =                     new ProcessStartInfo();                   _info.Arguments = _commandArgs.ToString();                 _info.CreateNoWindow = true;                 _info.FileName = _command;                 _info.UseShellExecute = false;                 _info.WorkingDirectory =                     _command.Substring(0, _command.LastIndexOf('\\'));                     Process.Start(_info);                   using (Control _c = new Control())                 {                     Help.ShowHelp(_c, "http://localhost:" + _port + "/");                 }             }             else             {                 MessageBox.Show("Usage:\n\tWebServerHere.exe <path> [port]",                     "WebServerHere", MessageBoxButtons.OK,                     MessageBoxIcon.Information);             }         }     } } And the Non-Admin installation reg-file: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_Current_User\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\VS2005 WebServer]@="ASP.NET 2.0 Web Server Here" [HKEY_Current_User\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\VS2005 WebServer\command]@="\"%SystemRoot%\\System32\\WebServerHere.exe\" %1"

ISA 2004 and FTP 550 Access denied

ProblemWhen connecting through a Microsoft ISA 2004 server, the FTP client has read only access to the files and folders. e.g. Uploading, renaming or deleting a file or folder is not possible. The FTP server replies with a "550 Access denied" message if such operations are performed.SolutionMicrosoft ISA 2004 server (acts as Firewall) default settings only allow read access (list and download). To change this settings open ISA management -> Select Firewall policy -> Web Access -> Protocol -> Filtering ->Configure FTP On this page remove the check mark from the "Read Only" option.
