ASP.NET’s autoEventWireup="false" page config setting breaks ASP.NET Web Services (ASMX): NullReferenceException

I’ve spent the last 1 1/2 weeks doing one of the most fun (seriously) work assignments that each Program Manager of our team gets to do every once in a while: Servicing. So until yesterday night (I’m flying home to Germany today) I was in charge of ASP.NET Web Services and Remoting. An even though these technologies have…

While my job role here at Microsoft didn’t formally change between when I was working from home in Germany and now, the additional bandwidth that I have has pretty…

Indigo The Windows Communication Foundation’s RC1 bits are now live. RC means “Release Candidate” and our team is really, really serious about this release being as close to what we intend to ship as we can ever get. Our database view with unresolved code-defects is essentially empty (there is a not more of a handful of…

One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052, USA

We moved. For the most part. Sabine and I now live in a temporary housing location that Microsoft set us up in while we wait for practically everything we own except for the 5 suitcases that we brought along with us a week ago.  One half of the rest are about 9 boxes that were sent as…
