Microsoft AJAX and Web Services Snag

If you plan on using Microsoft AJAX with web services, you better plan hard. The AJAX Control Toolkit is currently built using web services. I attempted to use the NumericUpDown control provided in a user control. However, I continually received an error message stating that The given key was not present in the dictionary. Upon further investigation, I found that the partial pages in the code samples inherited the CommonPage class. The CommonPage class, found in the App_Code folder, inherited the Page class. The page class contains some additional events in the load cycle that the user controls do not contain such as Pre_Init. In the CommonPage class, there is an override for PreInit which grabs all content placeholders and adds them to a list. That was it, once I switched the contents from a user control into a page, it worked. Of course there are other work around solutions to get the User Control to pull the content place holders.

Linksys SPA-9000 and ZingoTel Review 1

Yesterday we installed a Linksys SPA-9000 Small Business phone system in one of our newly acquired remote offices. The office will only have up to 3 people in it at any time, so we stayed with the 4 phone system instead of the 16. We chose ZingoTel for our service provider. Initially, I was a bit skeptical because its difficult to get to a person to talk to there and finally, when you do, their phone is breaking up. However, they walked us through the installation yesterday step-by-step. Our phones came online in less than 30 minutes. We made a few phone calls and the clarity was perfect. Today we noticed that we’ve had an issue with our phone lines, but I’m not sure why that has occurred. We’re looking into it now which is why this is review 1.
