Regular Expressions

posted on 2005-01-11 at 00:12:09 by Joel Ross

It looks like Roy Osherove has released the souce code of The Regulator. I've used The Regulator to help me create a few regular expressions. I have some sort of mental blog on regex I think. Every time I read how to do it, I "get it" until I have… more »

Skype 1.1

posted on 2005-01-10 at 23:53:04 by Joel Ross

It's been out for a while, but I have been too busy to get a lot of posts up lately. I downloaded it, and installed it. It looks better, but I haven't used it a whole lot to see the changes. You can get it here. According to the website, it adds multiple… more »

MSN Desktop Search, One More Time

posted on 2004-12-14 at 23:07:45 by Joel Ross

I promise. This'll be my last post about it. I got it to install and index everything. First of all, I'll say this. I'll be uninstalling Google Desktop Search shortly. Why? Because MSN's search offers better functionality. The shortcuts are very cool. I… more »

MSN Desktop Search Update

posted on 2004-12-14 at 08:34:08 by Joel Ross

Overnight, my two posts about MSN Desktop Search were picked up by Scoble (here and here), and that's always a good thing. Not only did I get a lot of extra traffic (already - it's only been seven hours, all overnight!), but I got a solution out of it.&n… more »

MSN Search Roundup

posted on 2004-12-13 at 23:13:47 by Joel Ross

Here's my round up. I still can't use it. Either than Scott over at Scott on Writing. And I'm not sure I even want to know what the Slashdot crowd has to say about it. Just kidding. Hopefully Windows 2003 support will be there when it hits 1.0, but… more »

Redgate SQL Packager

posted on 2004-12-13 at 17:44:02 by Joel Ross

I've used SQL Packager to test out a way to build our databases and it worked pretty well. I'm not going to do a review, because I haven't used it enough to do a full review. But Mark Vermeulen did a full review of it, and gives it a pretty good score.… more »

MSN Desktop Search

posted on 2004-12-13 at 13:58:55 by Joel Ross

So the big news Scoble talked about is MSN's new toolbar. But not just the new toolbar. It's the new toolbar with desktop search included. I downloaded it, ran the installer, and my reaction? It doesn't install on Windows 2003. So I can't tell you anythi… more »

Clean Sources

posted on 2004-12-13 at 00:01:40 by Joel Ross

Do you ever zip up your source code, and email to someone, only to have it bounce back because your zip file was too large? Then you realize it has the executables and debug files included in it? Well, someone else had this same problem. So they created… more »

Has anyone used Source#? It looks very interesting, if it does what it says it can do. It says it can manage source, plus SQL Server objects. It even comes with a one user license for free. I will probably have to check it out some day. It says you can s… more »

Skype On A Smart Phone?

posted on 2004-12-12 at 15:13:40 by Joel Ross

It looks like a cell phone and PDA company, HTC, is trying to port Skype to their smart phone, so you could make calls whenever you are within a wifi hotspot. The author mentions that with the 3G network, you wouldn't even need to be in a typical hotspot… more »
