  • Working with Multiple Versions of the SourceGear Vault Client

    A number of clients I do offsite consulting work for use SourceGear Vault as their source code control (SCC) program. I'm a big fan of Vault - it's easy to use remotely over HTTP or HTTPS, integrates seamlessly with Visual Studio, and provides all of the standard SCC features (history, diff, rollback...

  • 4GuysFromRolla.com Turned Nine Years Old this Month

    Hard to imagine, but 4GuysFromRolla.com turned nine years old this month. The first article I authored was titled, Using ActiveX Controls on Your Web Page and looked at creating an ActiveX using Visual Basic 5.0 and deploying it on a web page via the <object> HTML element. It was published on September...

  • My Karamasoft UISuite Whitepaper

    ASP.NET ships with a variety of essential Web controls - the TextBox, the DropDownList, the GridView, and the like. While these controls are fine and dandy for simple scenarios, they quickly become obsolete for more complex ones. Consider collecting date values. The ASP.NET toolbox includes a TextBox...

  • Comments Back On

    As I blogged about earlier, I turned off comments this summer because I was going 'off the grid' for much of the summer and didn't want comment spam to accumulate. We're back from our summer of travel , so comments have been re-enabled. The quantity of blog posts here will also pick up as I get back...

  • Removing Comment Support for the Summer

    As noted earlier , I am going to be taking an extended sabbatical this summer and won't be as actively maintaining this blog. Since this blog receives ~10 spam comments a day (despite the presence of a CAPTCHA) , I have decided to turn off comment support to reduce the volume of comment spam that will...

  • My Upcoming Hiatus

    Over the next several months there will likely be a severe shortage of blog posts here at ScottOnWriting.NET. My wife and I are taking a bit of a sabbatical this summer and doing a lot of traveling and hiking. During this stretch - from about now until late September - my ASP.NET work will be curtailed...

  • Lessons Learned from Running a One-Day Conference

    Over the years I have spoken at a number of user group meetings and conferences and have been teaching at the University of California - San Diego Extension since 2001. In all of these instances, my primary responsibility has been to speak, present, and teach. I have not had to worry about the plethora...

  • Jeff Atwood on Putting Down the Mouse

    Jeff Atwood has another great blog post, this one about going commando and putting down the mouse . Knowing keyboard shortcuts is a great productivity booster, as the keyboard-to-mouse context switch has high latency. I prefer keeping my hands on the keyboard as much as possible, delegating to the mouse...

  • Office Layout and Space

    Joel Spolsky has an interesting blog entry up about searching for new office space . What's particularly interesting about this post is the contrast between Joel's requirements a the average office space requirements. He is a strong proponent of making the workplace attractive[ 1 ] and for his new office...

  • REVIEW: HP LaserJet 3050 All-In-One

    For years I've had a very low-end Lexmark InkJet printer, the kind that sells for $39.95, which is just a shade more than what they charge per ink cartridge. In retrospect, I really should have ditched it earlier. It was painfully slow in printing and I was unable to share it on the network, meaning...
