I'm sitting right now in that session. The speaker is just demoing yet another example which has a SQL Injection vulnerability! The killer: a script callback that uses the params unvetted to dynamically build a SQL string. MS definitely should vet the demos for security problems.

Stefan Schackow (PM ASP.NET team) just demoed this cool little application here at the chalk & talk session @ TechEd in Amsterdam. The really interesting part is how to flow authentication information such as username and roles securely to the ASP application.

Looking for great information about Internet Information Services? Then IISWebCastSeries.com is the place to go. Especially interesting should be the Webcast "Recycling IIS 6.0 Applications: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" (related blog entry).

During the TechEd preconference session "Architecture Boot Camp for Building Connected Systems" by Beat Schwegler and Arvindra Sehmi, Beat demonstrated GAT. Although it still has some very rough edges, it also looks very promising.

The German .NET community's July event, the ASP.NET 2.0 Community Boot Camp aka CBC05 is now fully booked! It feels absolutely great that we (speakers are almost exclusively MVPs) were able to organize a five day training event on ASP.NET 2.0 by the community for the community. See you in Bad Ischl in July!

The Ajax.NET library has been open-sourced by Michael Schwarz. You can now download the most current bits here. What I didn't see so far though is the source code for the library... nor the license.

Just registered for PDC05. I will be in LA Sun-Sun, and attending the black belt security preconference session on Monday, which I consider a must - especially given that Michael Howard is one of the presenters.

If you are wondering why there's so little activity on this blog recently: I'm still touring Germany with my Techtalk. The last three legs are next week, and then I am almost on the plane to Amsterdam for TechEd Europe...

After quite some struggle, I got the mono::live CD to boot & actually work in Virtual PC. The first step to sucess is to create a new VPC image, and capture the ISO of mono::live for startup of your VPC image:

This thing will now ask you a couple of questions, such as country, keyboard layout, and screen resolution you would like to use:

Now for the stumbling block - mono::live (or Ubuntu, the underlying distribution, to be more precise) detects the graphics card emulated by VPC, however, uses the 24BPP mode with the VPC-emulated card only supporting 16BPP. Looks weird at first and had me stumped too. But I got help on GotMono.com (actual post, interesting snippet provided here for reference):

As far as I am aware, the easiest way to handle this is to just allow the machine to boot up all the way, and then when you can see the fuzzy background image (i.e., the stretched Mono logo) so that it looks like booting is complete, hit CTRL+ALT+F3 to bring up a command prompt.
 
Then type (or rather, cut and paste), this command, all on one line:
 
Code:
sudo sed 's/DefaultDepth\t24/DefaultDepth\t16/g' /etc/X11/xorg.conf > /tmp/xorg.conf && sudo cp /tmp/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf && sudo killall Xorg

to restart the X server at a color depth Virtual PC can handle.

Because pasting didn't work the way I wanted it to, I ended up typing this stuff using US keyboard settings on a German keyboard (don't ask). Anyways: this did the trick! Now I can start exploring mono::live without having to reboot my machine.
