BlogBlocks Pingback Plugin Online
Posted: May 31, 2008 12:49 PM by Michael Lang

BlogBlocks is a library I've written used to blog on this site.

I started writing this library back in 2006 when there wasn't a whole lot of options around for ASP.NET 2.0 blog engines.

I've been working on this library in my spare time in-between work and life and have recently reached a small milestone - having completed a Pingback plugin for the library.

In this post I talk a little about the architecture of the library, why it's a little different to other libraries out there, and what my plans are for its future.

Rolling Log File Provider for ASP.NET 2.0 Health Monitoring
Posted: Aug 01, 2007 1:32 PM by Michael Lang

A component called the RollingLogFileProvider is now freely available from the Downloads page.

The RollingLogWebEventProvider provides a mechanism for the standard ASP.NET health monitoring API similiar to log4Net's RollingFileAppender, or the Enterprise Library's RollingFlatFileTraceListener.

To use the RollingLogWebEventProvider requires no additional source code, only some additional ASP.NET health monitoring configuration settings.

Windows Source Converter

This application was written in a couple of hours.  It's a simple Windows Forms .NET 2.0 wrapper around Jean-Claude Manoli's CSharpFormat library.  This is a quick and easy to use application that can help you publish your code on the web with syntax highlighting. 

There are a number of solutions out there for creating syntax highlighted HTML.  One obvious approach is to simply paste your code into Microsoft Word and save it as HTML.  Unfortunately the result you'll get is over-complicated HTML, with rendering problems in non-IE browsers.  I prefer Jean Claude's solution because it produces clean HTML, it utilises CSS well, it's cross browser compliant and search engine friendly.

This code is free of charge to use as stipulated by the license agreement contained within.

You can download the WindowsSrcConvert.zip file which includes binaries and source here
