A long time ago I created this little project and even released it on NuGet but never took the time to write a introduction for it. In this post I will redeem myself from this and do a quick introduction on how to use it and where it’s for. This project was inspired by the lack of a convention on how to deal with technical and functional errors within the project I am working for. This lacking resulted in a mixture of ways of returning and handling errors. To be honest this wasn’t the first project I’ve been on where this was a problem and in most cases you don’t get the time to address this issue because it’s not where you are hired for. A couple of bad solutions I’ve seen are: throwing exceptions f... [More]

I have been thinking on how to end my first blogging year where I haven’t blogged as much as I wanted but I will definitely try to do a better job next year. To end this year I would like to share my top ten sites I most visited this year. Now I don’t have any browsing history to proof this, so I would have to do it from memory which is pretty accurate I hope. 1. Google Search I think this one is at the top of the list of most people but that’s not strange because it’s the best search engine around. When I am at work I most of the time use Encrypted Google which is nothing more then Google over a secure https connection. Perfect when you don’t want your boss to know what you’re searching. Take some time t... [More]

Installing SQL Server is something that I am not doing every day and once in a while when I have to, I am always losing time by searching through my books and the Internet. So I thought that it would be wise to invest some time in creating a blog post that goes to every necessary step. As a .Net developer I mostly use the express or developer edition of SQL Server. I usually install the express edition on my workstation and the developer edition on a virtual server with Windows 2008 R2. The developer edition has the same features as the enterprise edition but may only be used for development purposes. The express edition is free of charge and has the most limited set of features. For a complete comparison of all editions you should check the... [More]

Git is my version control system of choice for al my projects at home. It has a complete and powerful set of rich features which I still learn today. After a reinstall of my system, I always have troubles setting my repos up again. This post will end this once and forever by going through all necessary steps. The first step is getting the latest version of msysgit at http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/ and install this in the following steps.           I don’t need any icons or Windows Explorer integration because I don’t use it. Also I don’t use Bash as my shell so don’t need to associate .sh files as well.     This will only add Git to your PATH environment.  ... [More]
