The Cutting Edge

G'Day Developers!

Do you use email for tasks - not communication?

Email is a very powerful business tool. The main problem, however, is that for most people it is out of control - emails build up until they are impossible to manage. To help minimize mailbox clutter, try these tips:

  • Send emails that contain clear tasks, not banter

  • If the email you receive is not clear, call up the person who sent it and ask for more information. Too many people reply to the unclear email asking for clarification, which wastes time and does not guarantee a response.

Using your mailbox as a task list also saves you from having to use inefficient paper-based cards for your extreme programming work! (That will make Dr. Neil cranky :) )

Cheers until next time, Adam

Using the AdRotator Class & Dynamic Image Gneration in ASP.NET 2.0

Andrew Coates You are going to a site outside of SSW will talk about the AdRotator class in ASP.NET 2.0 ?this in turn leads to another cool thing dynamic image generation ?and this in turn leads us into the HTTP Handler class. You will see a demo on the 3 modes of populating the AdRotator control and a technique for dynamically displaying images stored as binary data in fields of a database. The 3 modes being Database? XML?and Programmatic? Then it is into Dynamic Image Generation, which will require creating an HTTP Handler class that intercepts calls to a particular URL and returns the image in a format that the browser expects. HTTP handlers give you a means of interacting with the low-level request and response services of the IIS Web server and provide functionality much like ISAPI extensions but with a simpler programming model.
