Note To Self: Don't Delete FeedStation's Setting File While It's Running!

The Wife is gone tonight, so one of the things I did after The Girls went to bed was to finish of my last podcast in my queue - emptying my queue for the first time since before The Boy was born two months ago. Before he was born, I was pretty good about… more »

Why We Built The NuSoft Framework

posted on 10/03/07 at 09:28:54 pm by Joel Ross

Now that we've put the NuSoft Framework out there, I figured it would be a good time to talk a little bit about why we use it internally at NuSoft, and we felt it was valuable enough to release to everyone. Before the NuSoft Framework, just about every… more »

Using .NET Custom Attributes for release documentation

posted on 09/26/07 at 07:24:01 pm by Joel Ross

One of the things that I've struggled with as a developer is keeping documentation in synch with the code I'm writing. To alleviate that, I'm always looking at ways I can represent documentation in my code. For example, at NuSoft, we have a basic set of… more »

2nd Monitor Issues

posted on 09/26/07 at 07:23:09 pm by Joel Ross

I'm a huge fan of using a second monitor, and up until recently, I have been doing that regularly. That was until recently, when I started to think it might be causing performance issues for me. None of this is hard and fast evidence. It's all anecdot… more »

My New Favorite Tool - AutoHotKey

posted on 09/13/07 at 09:02:17 pm by Joel Ross

I first saw AutoHotKey on Scott Hanselman's awesome tool list. As a side note, he's updated his list for 2007. Anyway, I'd looked at AutoHotKey and it looked pretty cool, but I never really had a use for it, until I upgraded to Vista. I use SlickRun, a… more »

I'm Now A Windows Live Writer User

posted on 09/09/07 at 09:07:17 pm by Joel Ross

I've resisted using Windows Live Writer for a while. Why did I resist? Because I couldn't get it to work with b2evolution, and without that, it was pretty much useless. With the release of the Window Live unified installer, I decided to give it a try… more »
