  • Disabling SoapException Stack Trace in .NET

    Richard Caento found out (by accident) how to turn off the SoapException stack trace.

  • Airport Extreme to Support Final 802.11g Standard


    Apple isn’t concerned that its Airport Extreme products might be rendered noncompliant by possible changes to the “g” protocol, however. Apple spokesperson Nathalie Welch is quoting as saying that the company is “very confident” that, if necessary, it will be able to update its Apple Extreme products via a software or firmware update “that will keep everything in sync with the ratified standard.”

  • Cisco Buys Linksys

    Rick Klau notes that Cisco has purchased Linksys.

    I really hope that they do well with Linksys.  You’d have to try really hard to mess up what they’ve got going.  Their wireless stuff is probably doing quite well.

  • It’s Looking Like Partly Sandstorm This Afternoon

    I spent some time in front of the television this morning.

    Instead of doing an overview of national weather, Al Roker gave us the current weather conditions in Iraq.  This was followed up with the local weather forcast.

    If I start seeing a 5 day extended forecast for Iraq, I think I might take a… better not finish that sentence.

    [I’m doing my best to post as little as possible about the hmm hmm in mmhmm hmm, but because I live in the States, I’m immersed in it, no choice]

  • What to do With Professional JSP 2.0?

    Thought on the JSP2.0 chapters:

    If Wrox falls through completely and doesn’t move on the chapters (highly likely), can we point someone from O’Reilly to the authors of the JSP2.0 Wrox book?  I’m sure that they could incorporate or adapt the material that these people have slaved over into something that kicks butt.

    Just a thought.

  • Danger Hiptop SDK

    Hack the Planet:

    The Danger Hiptop SDK is available. Boing Boing posted an inaccurate rant from AaronSw about it; you actually can run your own apps on your own Hiptop. But it’s still a problem that only T-Mobile-approved apps can be downloaded. It’s increasingly clear that the cellular industry needs to be vertically disintegrated just like wired telcos and ISPs. People also need to learn that “unlimited” plans are part of the problem since they incentivize carries to screw with their customers. I’d much prefer an uncensored pay-per-bit plan.

    So far, Danger and T-Mobile have been nonresponsive to developers.  They didn’t post any tech specs, and definately didn’t respond to the email that I sent them as a concerned developer.  I’m glad that they have released the SDK, but it might be too little too late.  Only time will tell, but Nokia and Motorola have been ten times more repsonsive to developers, giving out tech specs, SDKs and emulators to anyone that will take them.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’ll definately look into the Danger SDK.  I haven’t been able to find anyone locally with a working Hiptop on display for me to check a few crucial sites.  If there had been one available, I’d probably have one right now.  If the SDK was out at launch, I’d probably have one right now.  If they had released any specs whatsoever about which subset of HTML or XHTML that their device supported, well, you get it.

    I’ll bet that the color one rocks tho.
