My latest column is live


My latest
column
is live on MSDN. This one shows the socket-based peer-to-peer system that
I built for my ongoing music scheduling project. As you may or may not know, there
is no support for serialization on the compact framework, so I had to build my own.
It ended being pretty cool.

In other news, last week one of my previous column made the from page on microsoft.com.
First time for that.

    Is there any way to be getting _all_ messages (not from different categories) from this blog through RSS?

    When I’m trying to use the just (rss) feed it returns pretty messy results. Categorized feeds are fine though…

    PS. I’m not assuming that I’m doing everything right, but the two aggregator that I’ve tried – SharpReader and RSSBandit both don’t like what’s coming from the uncotegorized feed.

    Geez, don’t I feel stupid… Please disregard my previous message…

    PS. Uncategorised "(rss)" link is useless anyway however… :)

    I read your article, and I am curious why you feel it is necessary to search for an available port after AcceptSocket. The socket that is returned is already bound to an available port for talking to the connecting client. You can immediately begin sending messages to the connecting client and also re-call AcceptSocket on the original listener for additional connection requests.
