Tonight, SQL Server decided to write a 14GB error log to disk - filling it up neatly, which of course had a couple of "side effects". Drat! All log file directories (HTTPERR, IIS, MailEnable, you name it) - everything except the SQL error log is on a separate partition for exactly one purpose: that no application log can stop the server dead in its tracks.

After clearing up the mess I thought "let's move the logs for SQL Server". Thanks to Alex I finally figured out where to do that - in the Configuration Manager:

Go to the Properties dialog, and modify the Startup Parameters (-eC):

Details can be found in the article Moving System Databases, section Moving the master and Resource Databases. Someone from Microsoft care to enlighten me as to why this log directoy has been hidden so far away from sight?

Buck Hodges has a blog entry on this acquisition. To quote the most interesting part for everyone: "Effective today, TeamPlain is available, at no additional charge, to users who own a Team Foundation Server". If you need a Web interface for TFS, go get it!

World and dog has been reporting about the Orcas March CTP, so I'll stick with reporting news on released technology: the Visual Studio 2005 SDK Version 4.0 is here. Why is this important? It has all the cool stuff in it for extending VS, VSTS and TFS SP1.

Fiddler is a HTTP debugging proxy. Although it is easy to use (a very good thing!), it is also very powerful. Point in case and why I am writing about it today is that I stumbled across a drive-by-download site (stumble is the wrong word, the URL came with what seemed like a phishing mail and that piqued my interest):

That site is actually quite clever though: when you go there the second time, it detects that it tried to infect you before and tells you that your IP is blocked. And it doesn't send a peep to a browser other than IE. Plus - and that takes the biscuit - it also verifies the referer.

But I still wanted the code, so I reset my router and started Fiddler:

Although Fiddler has tons more features, this did the trick for me in this case (if you want to learn what Fiddler can do, look here).

So what's the obfuscated script about? The short version: it is a variant of the ASUS download server drive-by download incident. The actual code can be found in a discussion on our German .NET community site here.

The video recordings for the main tracks of FOSDEM 2007 are online now. Of interest for .NET developers might be Miguel's session on "Turbocharging Linux with Mono".

  • Inventory Tracking
  • Bug Database
  • IT Team Workspace
  • Call Center
  • Job Requisition and Interview Management
  • Change Request Management

  • Contacts Management
  • Physical Asset Tracking and Management
  • Document Library and Review
  • Project Tracking Workspace
  • Event Planning
  • Room and Equipment Reservations
  • Expense Reimbursement and Approval Site

I highlighted a few that might be interesting to developers.

Yesterday, Peter Koen held a talk at the .NET UG Vienna about Office Business Applications (OBA). I had ignored this topic up until now, but it definitely is worth checking out. Get started with Office Business Applications: What is it, and how can I get started? and then head over to the Office Business Applications Developer Portal. (Also have a look at the topics in Architecture Journal #10)
