Mini C# Lab – Home
A handy tool for simple short C# code running and testing, you can save time on waiting for Visual Studio startup and avoid creating a lot of one-time only project files.
Cool, I very often have to create small samples just to test some ideas or validate some code that I’m using. This should come in handy.

So, apparently support for Windows 3.11 is ending…Yes, that Windows 3.11! Holy cow!

Avisbudet reddet først livet til min nabo, så reddet han mitt hus. Etter det fullførte han ruten sin og leverte alle avisene, sier Morten Krogvold.
In English (via Google Translate). Basically a newspaper delivery guy rescued a woman in a house that was on fire and then completed his route… Pretty amazing! An everyday hero.
Using BizUnit with the Business Process Management Scenario
This topic will utilize one of the end-to-end scenarios provided with BizTalk Server 2006 and show how you can use the techniques described so far to perform automated functional and performance testing of the solution. This provides a realistic scenario to help determine how the tools and techniques presented in this guide can be used to incorporate testing into BizTalk Server solutions.
A thorough walk through on how to use BizUbit with a large BizTalk solution. I feel that the biggest problem with automated BizTalk testing is the endpoints. I mean, I don’t have an MSMQ, ehm, queue running on my machine… Neither does the guy next to me, but the guy behind me does. What I’m getting at here is this: For unit testing to work you have to isolate the test and for integration tests you have to run in a “as real world as possible” environment. Faking a SAP or Meridio server isn’t easy when doing integration testing… But perhaps you could just use the test environment? I need to think more on this I guess.

Somebody has taken the time to break down this text and analyze the heck out of it… Pretty cool!
Petzold Book Blog – “The Annotated Turing” Hot Off the Presses!
I am reminded of a short story by John Updike starring his alter-ego, the novelist Henry Beck. Whenever Beck publishes a new novel, he receives a copy in the mail for autographing from a fan in, let’s say, Lansing Michigan. One day Beck finds himself travelling through Lansing and decides to surprise this loyal fan by visiting him at his home. The man is certainly surprised and sheepishly shows Beck a closet full of autographed first editions — not only by Beck but by every other famous American novelist, obviously being stockpiled to fund the man’s retirement.
That’s a pretty funny story! Oh, and I want that book!
Coding Horror: Regular Expressions: Now You Have Two Problems
Get a regular expression tool. I don’t stare at regular expressions and try to suss out their meaning through sheer force of will. Neither should you. It’s a waste of time.
Good stuff! Regex is cool and at the same time I hate them… 😉 It’s like magic, only not! Below are two of the pages Jeff links to; well worth the read.

Know your options, but above all, know your intentions and make sure that the code you’re writing correctly expresses your intent.
BizTalk Software Factory – Home
The BizTalk Software Factory guides you through the process of creating a project structure and assists with adding artifacts to the project solution.
When creating the solution you can choose between a multi project solution or a single project solution where the artifacts are grouped into folders instead of projects.
