MySQL Connector/Net from version 6.1 has included a custom Session State Provider. This provider enables you to store session state in a MySQL database and is useful if you are running your site in a web farm and you don't want to use the build in MSSQL.
Here i s a really quick note on creating a basic extension to jQuery to check if an element is a child of another element
I am using NHibernate 3.2.0 under medium trust and all was going well until I turned on logging to try and trace a SQL error. It seems that when you set the log4net logging level to INFO that under a medium trust NHibernate throws a Security Exception. You can see from the stack trace exactly where the error was occurring, its quite clear. In the NHibernate source the static constructor for the Environment you can see that the NHibernate Version is logged, I was picking that is where the the error was occurring.
Just a quick note on getting log4net 1.2.10 working with ASP.Net 4. I had been working with log4net version 188.8.131.52 in ASP.Net 3.5 and it had been working but after upgrading the project to ASP.NET 4 I noticed an odd behavior. It would log only one message to the log file and refused to log any further messages until the application was restarted.
I'm in the middle of moving a web application from a Full Trust environment to a Medium Trust environment. There was all sorts of things that wouldn't work under Medium Trust as they did under Full Trust. I updated the version of Lucene.Net I was using to Lucene.Net 2.9.2. Of course it would work out of the box.
Working with the Telerik RadSplitter control I had the situation where I had dynamic controls in a panel inside a RadSplitter. If you are using any sort of tree control or expanding panel you will find the RadSplitter is only resized to the size of the contents when the page first loads and if you change the height of the content you get scroll bars. I have searched for a solution and all information from Telerik indicate this is by design and the control doesn't support this type of behavior. But it is possible, if you look at the online help you will see they use the splitter control with this exact behavior. Find a page with a little bit on content and expand the tree menu.You will find the RadSplitter controls height is increased and no scroll bars appear. So how come it works here?
I ran into the problem with Firefox 5 where when I visited a web page using Silverlight that Firefox prompted me that the plugin would not work and I would need to restart in 32 bit mode. After the restart I would work but its a pain as each time I restarted I would be prompted to again.
I wanted a typewriter style news ticker that would display news items one character at a time. I had a look round and there are a few jQuery news tickers available but I just wanted something very simple that worked with jQuery 1.3.2. I couldn't find a plugin that exactly fitted my requirements so I decided to make my own.
Today had a video that was split into 10 smaller mpg video files. The video files were named 0001.mpg, 0002.mpg etc... I wanted to merge these into a single mpg video file. Seems quite straight forward but I couldn't find an easy way to do this on OSX.
I have been working on providing a user defined domain object to my C# ASP.NET nHibernate project. I have been undecided on which approach to take. One difficulty is that the the mapping files I am using are embedded so they cannot be changed. After some research I had been considering two options. Using a one-to-many look up table which contained all the custom attributes or using a dynamic-component mapping.
