I really wanted to spend some time today going over common
misunderstandings about the GAC, about strongnames, about "Safe for
Scripting" and "Safe for Initialisation", and other such things
related to trust, safety, etc (much as Eric Lippert did in a recent
blog) because although it's actually a very simple concept, most people
(even very smart software engineers) don't understand it very well, and the
topic keeps coming up again and again.
I also want to do a blogised (?) version of my TechEd
security presentation, which has helped a lot of people actually understand
.NET security policy rather than have it as this big amorphous blob of
glazed-over-eyeness that they try to ignore for as long as possible.
Alas I am too tired tonight, but at least now I've made a
commitment and must follow through with it at some stage.
Other future entries might deal with localisation issues in
VSTO, random JScript thoughts, more on VBA and macro storage, code repurposing
<shudder>, and so on. Plus maybe some more personal topics (although I
promise not to say too much more about the Pet Shop Boys)
if you're dying to hear about something that you think I might have the scoop
on (whether it be a technical issue or you just want my oh-so-humble opinion),
just let me know 😉
