On Thursday, Peter did his SQL Server 2005 HOL for members of the SQL Server User Group Austria:

His workshop encompassed a tour of the new Studio management tool and for example TSQL enhancements (CTE's shown on the following photo):

Aside from just watching, I did the workshop part for SQLCLR features - writing functions, stored procedures, UDTs (user-defined datatypes), aggregates and triggers in .NET code. One cool sample is a function for email verification - try to do this in TSQL!

The Platform Lab (Building 20) is where product teams meet customers (heck, I was there just recently, and yes, it was the ASP.NET team hosting the event). In this Channel 9 video (download), Scott Guthrie takes you on a tour of the building.

I can safely assume that everyone knows the venerable Calculator that ships with Windows. Now there is the download for Microsoft Calculator Plus, a nicely spruced up version (non-classic view):

In addition to the visual enhancements, you can see to the left the addition of mathematical functions (well, in the end I still use my HP 48, but...).

The calculator sports Standard and Scientific view, the new Calculator Plus sports a third one - Conversion:

Now that's really nifty!

The patch was available already up front, now the security advisory was published on buqtraq (a list I very much recommend to subscribe to).

Cryptography Research put a Q&A online that answers questions around the hash collision attacks that were announced at the CRYPTO 2004 conference (way back in '97 I attended too, wow, the rump sessions were really cool).

If you happen to be a MSDN subscriber, then the Beta 1 Refresh has landed for you in the download section - including Team System! Be sure to read Rob Caron's post on what is definitely needed (installed), and what you might want to download too.

Authentication and Access Control Diagnostics 1.0 (more commonly known as AuthDiag) is a tool released by Microsoft aimed at aiding IT professionals and developers at more effectively finding the source of authentication and authorization failures.

AuthDiag 1.0 offers a robust tool that offers a efficient method for troubleshooting authentication on IIS 5.x and 6.0. It will analyze metabase configuration and system-wide policies and warn users of possible points of failure and guide them to resolving the problem. AuthDiag 1.0 also includes a robust monitoring tool called AuthMon designed at capturing a snapshot of the problem while it occurs in real-time. AuthMon is robust and specially designed for IIS servers removing any information not pertinent to the authentication or authorization process.

NeoWin is running an interview with Bruce Schneier, author of books such as Applied Cryptography or the monthly Crypto-Gram newsletter. His answers are interesting as always, I especially liked the ones to the questions "What do you see as the biggest threat in the IT age?" and "Who would you say should bear the burden of responsibility for security?"
