The book The .NET Developer's Guide to Windows Security is available for online reading in Keith Brown's wiki. It answers seventy-five questions, of which a .NET programmer better be able to answer quite a few of them! So be sure to check it and bookmark the page for your future programming endeavors.

Yesterday evening we (a few ASP Insiders) were chatting at dinner about various topics, and one was administration war stories of IIS. That was no surprise with Scott Forsyth at the table, and about half the guys hosting at OrcsWeb.

He mentioned WMIC (Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line), which comes with both XP and 2003. It is a command-line and scripting interface that simplifies the use of Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and systems managed through WMI. Too bad that I didn't stumble across it any earlier.

So I have googled for a few very useful links to get myself and everybody else up to speed and going:

Shanku Niyogi, ASP.NET Group Program Manager posted a blog entry on Upcoming Changes to ASP.NET 2.0 in Beta 2. Now, any further questions why I keep trying to convince people not to start production projects on a non-feature freeze Beta version?

Finally got my hands on Dino Esposito's book Introducing Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0. The term "finally" has a special meaning for me: I was the technical editor on this book, and quite a lot of work went into this book project, because writing such a book isn't done in a day, and ASP.NET 2.0 was/is a moving target. So even with the most stringent editing, there inevitably will be some "mistakes" caused by changes.

In the Acknowledgements, Dino writes "Christoph Wille, who reviewed the contents from a technical perspective, was one of the most attentive and insightful reviewers I have ever had (and I have written quite a few books)." He has a gift for words - a royal pain in the posterior would be the tagline I'd choose for myself.

The new version of MBSA can be found in the Download Center. Be sure to scan for common misconfigurations on your systems.

The Guide for Installing and Deploying Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack 2 contains a section that lists all command line options for XPsp2.exe as well as Update.exe. As I regularly keep forgetting those, it's about time I write the link down somewhere...

The walkthroughs are located on GDN as a project. It says "These walkthrough projects will help you exercise the functionality of Visual Studio 2005 Team System. These walkthrough projects support the walkthroughs on unit testing, web testing, load testing, profiling and code analysis that appear in the Visual Studio 2005 Team System documentation."

You can download a Channel 9 video interview with Jason Alexander on the topic of Burton (Visual Studio 2005 Team System). It also includes demonstrations, but be sure to bring lots of download bandwidth!

I just stumbled across a backup of an old Web site, dating back to 1996. Back then I already had a personal homepage where I posted programming tricks. So if you are interested in a weird COM / MFC trick, read on...
