Movin’ on

Always looking out for better things, I decided to move my blog. Not that anyone would care since I really have no visitors yet (I think). So it’s all just in my advantage, because this new one at WordPress is a bit easier to manage as opposed to the old one at BlogSpot (no offence…). Just to let you know ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey, this one even has instant smileys! ๐Ÿ˜€

MSDN Showtime! REMIX 07

Last june, I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the Microsoft DevDays in Amsterdam. Lots of interesting stuff there, including some VS “Orcas” 2008 previews (more web related stuff!), the very nice looking Silverlight technology and more. But the most interesting presentation I whitnessed there was by Molly Holzschlag. She talked about CSS and browser standards. She somehow managed to explain how the HTML flow in IE works, with positioning and stuff. I’ve been stuggling with that on almost every site I made (and I’ve made a few), so maybe you’ll be as pleased with this explanation as I was.

Check out the entire presentation at MSDN Showtime: http://www.microsoft.com/emea/msdnshowtime/sessionh.aspx?videoid=590

Molly has her own spot on the web @ http://www.molly.com, where more information about web designing can be found.

Mixing Forms Based and Windows Authentication In ASP.NET

To start off this blog with some usefull information, Iยดm going to explain how to develop an ASP.NET 2.0 web application which has both forms authentication and Windows authentication enabled.

Let’s say we’re developing a web application which will be running on our local intranet. There’s a pretty good chance that same intranet will have a domain and thus a domain server, which in this case will be a Microsoft Active Directory. Now, after our user has logged in to his (or her) computer, we don’t want to bother him with credentials any more. He provided the correct password to get into the machine, so he’s trusted from that point on.

Blogs first post

Hi there, and welcome to my online blog. At this very spot I will be publishing posts about me and my work being a web developer working with ASP.NET and Microsoft MOSS. But fortunately not my entire world consists of computers and Internet, so some sidetours will probably be made when I encounter other interesting stuff I really want to share with you.

I have really no idea who’s ever going to read this, but that’s okay in some sort of weird way. I’m just looking for a place to share stuff, and that’s going to be this spot right here, whether you like it or not ;). I considered posting in Dutch, being Dutch and all, but due to the technical stuff which will probably end up here I decided to try my English skills. So please don’t sue me for the mistakes I’ll probably make!

Hope you enjoy my writings, sharing information keeps the world going!
