Globalization Causes Assembly Issue

Today I was building an assembly in C#. I received an error saying, CS1607: Assembly generation -- Referenced assembly 'Assembly Name' is a localized satellite assembly. After lots of fussing, I figured out that the reason I was receiving that error was because of incorrect data in the AssemblyCulture property. In the AssemblyInfo.cs (or whatever your file is called with the version information), I had to change the [assembly: AssemblyCulture("en")] to [assembly: AssemblyCulture("")]. That fixed the issue!

Survey Application

This past week, I began finishing up a survey application. It was a request from one of the departments that needed to send out multiple surveys with multiple types of questions. Then, they needed a way to build a dynamic query to get the results they needed. It is a fairly cool app with 6 tables and only 5 ASP.NET pages. Not too bad. I will see if I can post the polished code in the future. It’s still in beta mode.

One last thing: I noticed that at ASP.NET Connections in Palm Springs, Steve Smith will be speaking about caching. I think my User Group will find this interesting as he will be speaking about caching just 2 months before that conference when he visits our User Group. :-)

ASP.NET 101 (actually CIS 263)

In the Fall of this year, I will begin a part-time teaching gig at a local college called Luzerne County Community College (www.luzerne.edu). In the fall, I will be teaching CIS 263, an Introduction to ASP.NET. The class will be on Monday nights from 6pm-8:55pm EST. If anyone is interested in learning more, let me know. Otherwise, I’ll try to post frequent updates in the blogs regarding this.

New Blog Options

I would like to take the time to thank Scott and everyone else who worked on the blog admin site and the blogs in general. You guys did a phenomenal job on cleaning this up and getting this to work. Unfortunately I have been tied up with stuff to blog much, but I hope to be back soon! Congrats on the improvements!!!

.Net Valley Speakers

I recently had two great speakers at my User Group. The first one started with Charles Carroll. He spoke about Data Access Layers, Web Services and the Utility Belt. He also gave away swag to the attending members. Then later this week I had invited Julie Lerman (in which her parents probably thanked me the most - lol) to speak to the group about streaming. That speech was absolutely phenomenal. We had a very small group for her speech, however, she tailored the speech to fit each of the individuals. She too gave away some swag.

Computer Inventory Cleanup

The firm that I work at inventories all of the computers that come in. However, the inventory becomes outdated at times. So, I built in a small component into the inventory system that uses the NT “ping” command to find out if the machine is online, offline, or still exists. This is fairly inefficient as for speed, but we needed a tool to be setup rather quickly to find machines. So, I modified my MAC address web service to use “ping”. Then using the varied responses from the different operating systems, I was able to determine the status. If anyone is interested in the code, let me know and I’ll post what I used.

Website Advice Column 001: Site Submission

After reading a recent e-letter by SitePro News (www.sitepronews.com), it prompted me for this post regarding web site submission. Often, users submit web sites to search engines and they never are “spidered” or “indexed.” Hopefully with a few tips, this can all change.

Windows Server 2003 Domain Implementation

This week I finished up my first Windows Server 2003 domain implementation. It was very interesting to see how 2003 differs from 2000. The biggest thing I noticed is security. At least on the surface, 2003 appears to be more secure. By default, everything is “turned-off” including allowing passwords that do not follow the new complexity rules. Passwords are not allowed unless they contain 1 upper-, 1 lower-, and 1 digit character as well as be 6 characters in length. Overall I thought the new security enhancements were a bit of a pain. I’m sure I’ll be thanking MS later for them!
