  • TSWeb: Sample TSWeb Pages to Connect To Non-standard RDP Ports

    If you think you're experiencing deja vu, it's because this was also covered in Publishing RDP Servers with TSWeb and ISA 2004 , but I thought I'd do some housekeeping and make a separate post on the pre-fiddled TSWeb connection pages. Short version ...
  • Outlook Calendar Adapter 1.1 for Blogwave

    Working from the to do list at the original post , and desperately trying to avoid working on my terrible remote desktop switcher, I've updated the pseudo-terrible calendar adapter. Major New Features: Prettier icon, using the BlogWave Dynamic Wave Device...
  • Outlook Calendar Adapter for Blogwave

    Your One-Stop Shop for the OLCalendar Blogwave Adapter. Usefulness not guaranteed. For now, an all-in-one version history (topmost is newest, natch), but later- who knows? General Notes: PubDate is set to the Start Date of the appointment. I haven't found...
  • ISA 2004: Scripting Rocks! (Import Protocol demo)

    Like ISA 2000 before it, ISA 2004 is scriptable. Just about anything I can imagine doing through the user interface, I can do with a script. More, in fact! Unlike ISA 2000, ISA 2004 plays nice with XML. Every aspect of the configuration (that I've looked...
  • Fiddling: Outlook Calendar Adapter for Blogwave 0.3

    Seeing as Addy was kind enough to include sample adapter code with BlogWave 0.3 , my immediate thought was that a Calendar might be cool. Can o' worms, that. I fiddled with this for the last few nights, and I think I've hit the 80/20 point, so I've cleaned...
  • Updated Outlook Calendar Adapter for Blogwave Beta 1

    To celebrate the release of BlogWave Beta 1 *, I updated the Outlook Calendar Adapter for the new version! There haven't been any real enhancements (depending on how you feel about the themed dialog background for XP), but there are now two (relevant...
  • Debugging a BlogWave adapter...

    I've been fiddling around with a freakishly terrible Outlook calendar adapter for Blogwave . It's truly awful, though at the moment I'm not sure if it's me or Outlook. Anyway, at the moment it's pretty close to being nonfunctional (no, that's not a typo...
  • Rebuilding the Mighty Mighty Desktop

    After one alpha too many, I'd left my primary desktop in what I can only describe as an "indeterminate state", and earlier this week, Things Stopped Working. This is pretty much the same installation I've been using since I started here about three years...
  • Second Annual* Blog Facelift (Bloglift?)

    For no real reason, I decided my old design was a bit pants, and started out on my second Annual Blog Facelift , the former of which was all the way back in June. While I'm usually the poster child proving that people with basic coding skills shouldn...
  • Sweet: The Locomotion Demo is out!

    http://www.3dgamers.com/games/locomotion/#filelist NB Getting the music for the demo costs 100 MB, beyond the 29MB used for the game and graphics (the small demo!). The music is good, and sets the mood nicely, but it's perhaps not unmissable. It's a time...
  • Techie Audio?

    What I find makes exercise (you know, walking and stuff) more tolerable is having someone whisper sweet technical nothings in my ear. I'm working through DotNetRocks back-episodes, which aren't bad at all. While digging around for more audio, I noticed...
  • Actual Desktops, not Virtual Ones

    I spent a small chunk of today setting up my new secondary work machine - my plan is to run Virtual PC on it, and use it as my main test box. I have an LCD monitor that does VGA and DVI inputs. I can switch between them at the push of a button. Unfortunately...
  • Why I Couldn't Access The AppointmentItem Body Property...

    ... without getting one of those "An application is doing something evil with your email, would you like to be complicit (Y/N)?" dialog boxes (boxen?). See Important Security Notes for Microsoft Outlook COM Add-In Developers . I've played with a little...
