Using an HttpHandler to Forward Requests to a New Domain
One of the hardships of moving to a new domain is intercepting and forwarding traffic from the old domain name over to the new one (without losing any traffic/google ranking/etc). Custom HttpHandlers in .Net make this scenario ridiculously easy to overcome. Pre-.Net, you would have had to roll your own... Read More...

jayBlog is Moving -- Update Your Links/RSS Feeds to
I am finally ready to flip the switch on and have completed all the necessary dirty work to do so (I think/hope). I am also migrating to Community Server in the process…yes, originally I said that I would not but I changed my mind (might as well get it all done at the same time... Read More...

Hello From Server 1.0!
It's been a long day, but I have finally moved everything over to (and over to Community Server 1.0).

Managed Palindrome Code -- Update
I’ve refactored my C# palindrome code (yeah, was a little bored) to be even quicker than my previous solution (as well as being a standalon class). I’ve posted my new code here .

Looking for Some New Blogs
What’s the coolest/neatest/most informative blog you read (besides your own of course)? They don’t have to be technical in nature, though of course that’s always nice. Send me your links! For the record, the blogs I can’t live without are (in no particular order): Raymond Chen... Read More...

ASP.NET Validation Controls in Firefox
I actually figured this out with Bob a while back, but just to reiterate, the following code can get client side validation controls to work correctly in Firefox (or you can always do server side validation at the expense of postbacks): C# Page.Validate(); if ( !Page.IsValid ) { return ; } //Continue...
