So... I'm in the big boys league now (plane-wise, that is!). I just got my new plane yesterday and boy it's big. For those of you who have any interest, it's a 28% scale Extra 300S, powered by a 3W 50i petrol engine. It has a wingspan of 210cm and is 195 from cowl to rudder (that make... [More]

Okay so it's been a little over a month since I was let go from Mondosoft. And what a month it's been. I've been so busy running around to job interviews and answering mails and phone calls from people who wanted to hire me that I simply haven't had time to write anything on here. But now I've ...

I've been out of my job for 4 days now and have been completely swamped in emails and phone calls from people who are interested in hiring me. It's really amazing. I never imagined I'd be in a position where I had to basically pick any job I wanted. I went to the first two interviews today and alrea... [More]

An interesting thing happened at work yesterday. I had 5 fantastic years at Mondosoft and I am really going to miss working with all my great colleagues. But sadly, times have changed and so has the market along with them. Basically all this means that I'm going to be looking for new adventures... [More]

Another little thing that I stumbled across - when trying to hide a control from anonymous users, I just tried the following:
Now I would have expected that to just work. But when I viewed my page, the controls were still visible. After a b... [More]

I stumbled across a strange little thing the other day. I wanted to create a control that would show a list of users and if they had entered an email address, I of course wanted to show the address in one of the columns.
I decided to go for a GridView - but I just couldn't get a HyperLinkField to ... [More]

A good friend of mine contacted me over MSN yesterday with a really strange problem (or so, he thought). Here's the scenario.
He had made a .NET web service that exposes information from an internal system. Everything worked perfectly well in his development environment, but when he tried to publis... [More]

I find that I very often find myself sitting in a situation where I've been developing an ASP.NET website or other database-driven web application, making use of ASP.NET 2.0's membership and role providers etc. When I get to the point of having to publish the site to my shared hosting provider,...

Okay, admitted, it's my own fault. I went skiing on Saturday at a small ski resort in Sweden called Isaberg. It's not that big but it's perfect for a one-day outing if you get a ski-craving.
I'm not (at all) the best skiier in the world. Truthfully I only really tried skiing twice before in my life... [More]

Wow, where did last week go? All I remember is a sudden feeling Monday evening of my whole body being on fire. It turned out that I had an almost 40°C fever. So off to bed. Tuesday was spent sleeping (I sort of had a sleep-off with the cat. I won, I'm sure). Wednesday my fever had gone down a bit, b... [More]
