The past three days I attended the ASP / vs2005 conferences in Munich as a speaker (not including today of course, which was spent in sunshine on the slopes of the ski resort Dachstein West, gorgeous powder included after the snowfalls of last week). As advertised, my talks were about (near) future technologies: ASP.NET 2.0 Master Pages & Themes, ASP.NET 2.0 Membership & Security as well as a crash dive of VSTS Team Developer, with demo focus on Unit Testing, TDD, Code Coverage as well as Profiling.

I brought back a couple of fotos, the first two are (of course) self promotion - myself in talk #1 and #2.

Thursday evening the speakers were invited to a "VIP Dinner", and I couldn't resist to test my SPV C500 camera in low-light conditions. It did fare fairly well if subjects did not move.

The 80/20 Rule for Web Application Security is an article by Jeremiah Grossman, focused on increasing the security without touching the source code. The article identifies the "vital few" security solutions essential to protecting a website:

  • Default server error messages
  • Remove or protect hidden files and directories
  • Web server security add-ons
  • Add httpOnly flag to sensitive cookies

Port Reporter (PortRptr.exe) is available in v1.01. Port Reporter logs TCP and UDP port activity on a local Windows system. It runs as a service on Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. The information provided by the service can be helpful for security purposes, troubleshooting scenarios, and profiling systems’ port usage.

A non-programming security topic centered around securing your wireless LAN. This white paper contains instructions to obtain and install a certificate for PEAP-MS-CHAP v2 wireless authentication on the IAS (RADIUS) server and how to set up the clients to trust this certificate.

Quite a few things happened whilst I was whileing away on the community wintercamp: the Enterprise Library was released, and PatternShare.org went live.

There is a chapter online from an AW book at InformIT: Introduction to Refactoring. The interesting (and as always flameworthy) point: In this chapter, Joshua Kerievsky explains the whys and hows of refactoring, and why you shouldn't trust that automated refactoring program.

This year's community wintercamp is over - we had two great days spanning three days. Included here are only two photos - one from Friday's evening "Bratl in der Rein" in the restaurant Moststadl in Ebensee, and the second one from Saturday's skiing in the Dachstein West resort.

After figuring out the previous problem (DLL dependencies), I decided to install the .NET Framework SDK into the VPC image (a Windows Server 2003). No such luck: "Extracting file failed.  It is most likely caused by low memory (low disk space for swapping file) or corrupted Cabinet file." No, not again a memory issue...

Wait a second! That image has 400 megs of memory assigned plus a 1.2 gig growth limit for the swap file. That can't be. As usual, I used Google to search for solutions. One (older) suggestion was to update Windows Installer - I gave it a shot anyways, and installed Windows Installer 3.0. No change, but that was expected. At least I am now up2date in that respect.

To spare myself further waste of time, I decided to take the easy route and ran

setup /c

on my XP box, copied the extracted setup files to the VPC image - and presto! The SDK is installing like a charm.
