Referencing Classes in ASP.NET 2.0

I was reading a list response by Joteke (Teemu Keiski) earlier about referencing a class in an ASP.NET 2.0 project. In ASP.NET 2.0, if your class is in a code file in the App_Code folder, you do not need to include the assembly in the page directive in the page code. Also, if you are referencing a class in the web.config, you no longer have to reference the “class library name, class name” if the class file is in the App_Code folder. All files in the App_Code folder will be pre-compiled and will use the same class library name as the IL pulled from the rest of the project uses.

5 Supposedly Scary Things about .NET (That Don’t Have to Be) (6:00pm - 7:45pm)
There are a number of topics that many developers typically tend to avoid when learning .NET. But they really don’t need to be so intimidating. This session will explore five of these daunting challenges - delegates, reflection, threading, Code Access Security (CAS) and declarative programming. The goal of this talk is to give attendees a high level, conceptual understanding of these topics – enough to recognize where they can help you in your application development and confidence to dig deeper on your own.

Find Exploits In Nearly Anything

HD Moore, a popular hacker, has recently updated his controversial exploit framework called Metasploit Framework. This framework has plug-in modules to allow users to test everything from their browsers to their operating system and from certain applications to their web server.

Flood of 2006 Photos

Wow! We definitely got lucky. I have placed three flood albums on my site. Many of the best pictures aren’t online because we were more worried about saving valuables, houses, and stores that we didn’t have time to break and take pictures. Between sand bags and wet shoes, I was able to snap a few:
