Fiddler and Windows 8 Metro-style applications

Eric Law posted details on how to get Fiddler to work with new Windows 8 Metro style applications: Over on StackOverflow, a new Windows 8 user asked how to get Fiddler working with new Windows 8 Metro-style applications. These applications work somewhat differently than classic desktop applications, and require a bit of special configuration work…

Windows ThreadPool APIs

The ThreadPool APIs are pretty cool, but the docs are confusing at first blush and the sample code is horrible (just one sample, and suffers from kitchen-sink syndrome). But fear not! MSDN lets users comment, so I did 🙂 Repro’d here for posterity: The sample is rather big and sprawling, making it hard to understand…

That experience has been distilled into a “patented ten-step method” on how to free a project of unwelcome…

"Make No Little Plans"

“Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistency….
