Open Source Projects

That is all I can say, wow.

This is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. A zero footprint cube browser that is built using Adomd.net and ASP.net. I've been looking for this for a long time. But not only is it everything I've wanted, it is free and you can download the source.

My next project will be to convert this into a web part for SharePoint and add save state. Then life will be good and I will drop the Office Web Components (and all the problems we've had with them).

Thanks to Mosha Pasumansky for linking to this and to Duncan Lamb for linking to Mosha. (In case you don't do much with Analysis Services, Mosha is the development lead on the AS engine team and is the MDX/OLAP/AS guru (see his website and books)). I'm now subscribed to Mosha's blog and already learning quite a bit...

Which OS Are You?

You are HP-UX. You're still strong despite the passage of time.  Though few understand you, those who do love you deeply and appreciate you.
Which OS are You?

At least I'm not Windows ME. :)

MyRss Project

Posted in Sql and Xml | General at Friday, November 5, 2004 3:00 AM Pacific Standard Time
One of the things I've been tasked with at my job is managing a set of Windows 2003 servers. I tried using Microsoft MOM but ran into some issues with it. So I decided to create a simple .Net project that I called MyRss. It basically provides a framework for generating RSS feeds from data stores. So far I have an Event Log Rss feed generator so that now I just subscribe to the event log of each server and specifying which types of events I want to receive in the url. So far so good. Now I have the benefits of RSS (the event logs come to me) and it promises to make my job easier. My next plan is to create RSS feeds for DTS jobs.

Back from Boston

Posted in General at Friday, November 5, 2004 2:56 AM Pacific Standard Time

I'm back from Boston. It was a great trip. My wife and I got to spend a lot of time with her brother and we had a great time sightseeing. In addition to the great fall colors, we also got to watch the Red Sox win the World Series and we even attended the Red Sox victory parade. It was a blast. I'll try to post some pictures this weekend.

On the downside, my wife was just diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I'm a long time reader of Scott Hanselman's blog and his advice on what to do has been great (Scott is a long-time diabetic). So she seems to be handling it pretty well now even though yesterday she was pretty upset. Now I just have to convince her that the baby isn't going to be huge as long as we go about things correctly. :)
