Exceptioneer – Handling and Reporting Exceptions

Exceptioneer is a product created by Pixel Programming. Phil Winstanley, one of the founding members of Pixel Programming, recently sent me an invitation to try out Exceptioneer. No pun intended, their concept and product is exceptional! It’s really easy to setup and is a great way to log exceptions and review them visually. They include a code snippet, stack trace, have a direct link to Google to search for a potential solution, and allow you to share the summary with others without giving them access to your application. To see it’s current capabilities, take about 10 minutes to view their overview video.

Classic ASP Support in IIS 7 and IIS 7.5

I’m working on reverse engineering an application that was written about 8 years ago in Classic ASP. When I first hit the site, one of the things I noticed was that the traditional error messages weren’t displayed.

What I've Been Up To Lately

Things have been quite busy with me lately and thus my post count has dropped significantly. Nope, I haven’t dropped off the earth. I have been working pretty hard on a few projects that I’ll hopefully be able to shed some light on soon. I gave an MVC/jQuery/IE8 talk recently at a Philly.NET Code Camp and posted a really basic app on CodePlex to support the talk. You can check it out at http://bizweb.codeplex.com.

Minifying HTML and JavaScript Using Microsoft Expression Web

I don’t get an opportunity to use Microsoft Expression Web that often, but when I do, I always discover new features. I was looking for a way to compress HTML and JavaScript files that I was generating for one of our affiliations. In Expression Web, simply go to Tools > Optimize HTML to see a list of options. Just remember to resave your files as a different name in case you remove comments unless the comments can be lost. If you need to take a .min file or a compressed file and see a more fluent version of the source, you can right-click in the source window and choose Reformat HTML to reformat the source.
