Foldershare ist jetzt Microsoft LiveSync

Eben hat mich mein Folderhare mit der Meldung begrüsst, dass der Client zu alt sei um sich zu verbinden. Und siehe da: Was schon vor längerem angekündigt wurde, ist nun passiert: gibt es nicht mehr und Microsoft hat LiveSync aktiviert. Leider kann man anscheinend den alten Account nicht migrieren, sondern muss einen Passport Account nutzen. Egal. Gleich die Mac Software runtergeladen und installiert UND SIEHE DA: Es ist ein Universal Binary. Damit hat auch meine letzte PPC-Anwendung, nämlich der Foldershare Satellit ausgedient!
Ansonsten bleibt alles beim Alten. Sogar die Symbole auf der Webseite sind die selben…

Paste as… Addin Visual Studio C# – VB

„The „Paste as…“ functionality in applications like Microsoft? Word has become indispensable for me. I often copy something from the Web and want to paste it into a document without all of the HTML formatting. Paste as is the tool for the job.

While perusing the Web one day, looking for a code example, it occurred to me that Paste as would also be beneficial for Visual Studio?. However, instead of simply converting the text formatting, it could convert the language of the code example. It’s common to be coding in C# and find a Visual Basic? example that does exactly what you want, or vice versa. Using such code requires copying the sample to the clipboard, going to one of the many great code conversion Web sites, pasting in the code, converting it, copying the new code, and finally pasting the converted code into Visual Studio.

When I find a C# code example on a Web site, I’d really like to eliminate the intermediate conversion steps and just Paste as Visual Basic right into the code editor. All the necessary building blocks are in place to make this work; I just need some code to glue it all together.“

„Building .NET 1.1 Projects using Visual Studio 2005

The MSBuild Everett Environment (MSBEE) has just been announced! Soon this will be a (reasonably) supported scenario and we’ll all be able to build both 1.1 and 2.0 versions of .NET code on Visual Studio 2005. „ – Scott Hanselman – Building .NET 1.1 Projects using Visual Studio 2005 – Scott Hanselman – Building .NET 1.1 Projects using Visual Studio 2005

SNARF from Microsoft Research

„Microsoft Research’s Community Technology presents SNARF, the Social Network and Relationship Finder.
SNARF was built around the notion that social network information that is already available to the computer system can be usefully reflected to the user: a message from a manager might be seen differently than a message from a stranger, for example. SNARF applies this idea to email triage: handling the flow of messages when time is short and mail is long.
The SNARF UI is designed to provide a quick overview of unread mail, organized by its importance. The UI shows a series of different panes with unread mail in them; each pane shows a list of authors of messages. Clicking on a name shows all messages involving that person.
People use a variety of strategies to handle triage; there is no single „best“ ordering of email messages to produce an optimal outcome.
SNARF gives the user the freedom to build their own ordering. Each person in their inbox is assigned a set of meta-information: „number of emails sent in the last month,“ for example. These metrics can, in turn, be combined to create an ordering across all contacts. For more information, check out the CEAS paper on SNARF.“
