What Is .NET ?

What Is .NET ?

What Is .NET ?
The .NET Framework is Microsoft's application development platform that enables developers to easily create Windows applications, web applications, and web services using a myriad of different programming languages, and without having to worry about low-level details like memory management and processor-specific instructions.

.NET is probably one of the more muddled and mismanaged brands in the history of Microsoft. If you go to microsoft.com it will tell you that ".NET is the Microsoft Web services strategy to connect information, people, systems, and devices through software," but this isn't what most people are thinking of when they say, ".NET." What is commonly referred to as .NET is programming with the .NET Framework. This is what I am going to cover in this article. If you are looking for marketing speak then please refer to www.microsoft.com/net.

The Runtime
At the heart of .NET is the Common Language Runtime, commonly referred to as the CLR. The CLR is made up of a number of different parts, which I will be covering here piece by piece (if you didn't want a technical article then you should've followed the marketing link).

Language Independence
One of the most important facets of the .NET Framework is language independence. You can write .NET applications using any number of different programming languages. The most popular languages tend to be C# and VB.NET, but many other languages now have .NET versions including Python, COBOL, and more. You can see a list of many of the languages you can use with .NET over at dotnetpowered.com/languages.aspx.

Language independence is attained through the use of an intermediate language (IL). What this means is that instead of code being compiled in actual machine code (code that the CPU would run), it is instead compiled into a high-level generic language. This means that whatever language you write your code in, when you compile it with .NET it will become IL. Since all languages eventually get translated into the intermediate language, the runtime only has to worry about understanding and working with the intermediate language instead of the plethora of languages that you could actually use to write code.

Just-in-Time Compilation
If your mantra is, "Why do something now you can put off till tomorrow?" then you have something in common with the CLR. When you compile your code and it is translated to the intermediate language it is then simply stored in an assembly. When that assembly is used the CLR picks up that code and compiles it on-the-fly for the specific machine that is running the code. This means the runtime could compile the code differently based on what CPU or operating system the application is being run on. However, at this point the CLR doesn't compile everything in the assembly; it only compiles the individual method that is being invoked. This kind of on-the-fly compilation, referred to as jitting, only happens once per method call. The next time a method is called, no compilation occurs because the CLR has already compiled that code.

Memory Management
One of the constant assailants on productivity in unmanaged programming platforms is manually managing memory. Having to deal with memory management is also one of the largest sources for bugs and security holes in many applications. .NET removes the hassle of manually managing memory through the use of the aptly named garbage collector. Instead of the developer needing to remove objects from memory, the garbage collector looks at the current objects in memory and then decides which ones aren't needed anymore. For some developers this will be a tough pill to swallow; if you are used to managing memory then turning it over to an automated process can be somewhat troubling. This is when you have to take a step back, stop worrying, and embrace the runtime. There are bigger problems to solve (namely the business problems that are probably the real goal).

Alternative CLR Implementations
The .NET runtime is actually based on a standard developed by Microsoft called the CLI or Common Language Infrastructure, portions of which have been submitted to Ecma as an international standard. Because the CLR is based on an open standard, there have been a number of alternative CLR implementations, most notably Rotor and Mono. Rotor was a project from Microsoft Research, is a version of the CLR that will run on Mac OS, and is shared source. Mono is an independent open source implementation of the CLR that runs on various Linux distributions. While "Write once, run away" is not always realistic with .NET, there are some options available when it comes to other platforms. (Some code can be moved without issue, but most will require some tweaking, as different implementation includes different functionality.)

The Library
While the runtime is definitely the most important part of .NET, you can't do too much with it by itself. This is where the Base Class Library (or BCL) comes in. The BCL includes a lot of the plumbing of .NET, including the system types, IO, and functions for working with text. In addition to the BCL, there is the Framework Class Library (FCL). The FCL is an extended library that makes working with the .NET Framework practical and includes the following major pieces:

ADO.NET
Most current applications involve working with databases, normally more than one. ADO.NET is the data access component of the .NET Framework and includes built-in providers for SQL Server, ODBC, OLEDB, as well as Oracle.

Windows Forms
Windows forms are the .NET Framework method for building desktop-based applications. Windows Forms are simply a managed wrapper over the native Windows API, this means that you can write code for one version of Windows and it will run on other versions without issue all the way back to Windows 98 SE.

Windows forms applications do require the .NET Framework to run, which means that anyone who downloads your application, or any computer it is installed on, will need to also have the .NET Framework. The framework can be easily installed through Windows Update, and is completely free, but the download size can be troublesome for people with a slower connection.

ASP.NET
ASP.NET is the part of the .NET Framework dedicated to building web applications. Using ASP.NET you can build everything from a small starter website to enterprise-level web applications. ASP.NET allows you to write web applications without the need for a scripting language, everything can be written in your .NET language of choice.

Since ASP.NET applications are simply rendering HTML for the browser, there is no requirement for the .NET Framework on the client. Chances are you have used a number of sites that have been written in ASP.NET and you might not even have known it.

Web Services
With ASP.NET Web Services Microsoft has created a number of time-saving features to make it easy to quickly write and expose web services from your application. Just like the rest of .NET, ASP.NET Web Services can be written in any .NET language. Through the use of the Web Services Extensions (free download from Microsoft), you can also add support for the new and ever-growing list of WS-* specifications to your ASP.NET Web Services.

The Tools
One of the benefits of the .NET Framework is the great tools that are available to the .NET developer. Visual Studio has long been considered one of the premier IDEs on the market and does a lot to increase developer productivity when working with the framework. There are also a large number of open source tools available for .NET, including many that mimic the tools available on other platforms. Some of these include nUnit for unit testing, nAnt for building projects, nCover for testing code coverage, nHibernate for object persistence, and much more.

The Future
This November, Microsoft will launch .NET 2.0, the first major revision of the .NET Framework. With this revision .NET will grow to include a large amount of new functionality, not just in ASP.NET, Windows Forms and the base library, but also with the addition of support for new language features like generics to the runtime. Microsoft has shown its commitment to this platform and will continue to build upon .NET for years to come. (There is already some public information available on the next version of .NET, which is code-named Orcas.)

How to get unlimited bandwidth from your host for free

How to get unlimited bandwidth from your host for free

NOTE: This applies only to specific hosting companies, due to the
specific setup needed and does have its drawbacks.

While setting up hosting space with a specific company I often deal
with, I noticed that they used a shared IP. (IP shared by two or more
websites/domains.) Well, the rates for unlimited bandwidth were
around $50+ per month.

Back on track... When setting up the acct, the hosting company needs
to know the domain name so that they can direct it accordingly.
(example: 'http://www.123.4.567.890/~user1/ ,
'http://www.123.4.567.890/~user2/ etc)

At this point you can give a url that doesnt belong to you at all. As
long as the nameservers dont change, that should have absolutly no
negative effects on you or your site whatsoever.

How it works is this:
The host propogates you a certain amount space on its servers, and
monitors the traffic that enters their space through the domain its
registered under. Being that the domain isn't connected to the site
at all, it registers ZERO traffic.

Zero traffic registered = can't possibly go over bandwidth
restrictions
can't possibly go over bandwidth restrictions = free unlimited
bandwidth

Now the problems with this (besides the ethical ones) is that your
host may offer X amount of mail addys with the acct
(you@y...) and these will not work, as the name isnt on their
DNS. However, some domain companies allow you to set it up
regardless. Another problem seems to be strictly cosmetic, but can be
highly problematic... Once you attach the domain you want onto the
site, each page comes up/w the ip/UN the host propagated to your
acct. Its at this point where you have to have a phenominal 10-15
character alphanumerical or better (#, &, etc) pw, or your site will
be vulnerable to attack since the attacker already has your UN. This
only gives attackers a slight advantage as the amount of time it
would take to brute force a 10 character pw @ a rate of 1,000,000 per
second is 10 years. Add numbers and case sensitivity to that and it
becomes approx 26,980 years.

While I'm on it, I may as well add that if you use this method,
obviously you are going to be using the lowest cost hosting plan
available, which in turn will offer the least amount of space. Thats
why free hosts were invented.

Free hosts suck as a general rule. Who wants a site smothered in ads?
However, if you upload all your programs, graphics and other large
files (have a backup of course) to a reliable free host and target
them accordingly from your site you have just freed up a signifigant
amount of space. The only setback/w this is having to keep an index
card or file around/w your pws, as you should never use the same one
twice, and want to use complicated ones.

How to Convert AVI to DVD

Ok, so you've got this downloaded AVI (DiVX, XViD) movie and you want to watch it on your TV, but you dont have a DiVX DVD Player. I am going to show you how to convert this AVI movie to a DVDISO image with minimal to no quality loss of the movie file.
Tools Needed:




Tools Needed:
-AVI2DVD (here)
-CCE SP v2.67.00.27 (Search Torrents, found mine on ISOHUNT)
-DVD Decrypter (here) -DVD Burner

Step One: Install all software listed above.

Step Two: Start up AVI2DVD and load .AVI file.



Step Three: Choose Output

Here is where you choose the format you want the video to be encoded into.(VCD,SVCD,DVD5,DVD9) Here we are going to choose DVD-5.



Step Four: Choose Encoder

This is the step where we choos the encoder we wish to use to convert our files. (1)When you get to this step Click Locate CCE and browse for the CCE SP exe file and click Open. Verify that the bar above the passes box is Green and says CCE Found! If it says this your all set.

The amount of passes you use is completely up to you, I recommend using 5 or more passes if video is under 100 mins. 6 or more for anything over 100 mins. The more passes the better quality DVD you will get. Maximum passes allowed is 9.



Step Five: Enocding Time!

This is the longest step in the whole process. Time for full encode depends on how many passes you chose. Each pass takes about an hour.

Clcik Add Job, in the box right under that button, Job Queue, Job 1: (filname) should have appeared. Now clcik the GO !!! button. After clicking GO !!! a box like this will appear:



Click Proceed. After clicking Proceed 2 Command Prompt Boxes will appear after a while (usually 30 to 60 seconds after) that look similar to this:


DO NOT close them, they are encoding the audio to AC3 format for use on the DVD. (The box pictured is the first one to appear. after that one goes away the second one comes up). After the second dialog box disappears this should come up:



Click Apply Then Click OK. After clicking OK you should get:


This box will be up for a while...so sit back, relax and let it do its job. First it will do an INFO pass, then it will do the number of video passes you chose.

After the last encoding pass finishes, these next four command prompt boxes show up one at a time:






After those are all gone and your back to the AVI2DVD screen you're done for this step!!

Step Six: Burning the ISO

The last step....your almost there.

Open DVD Decrypter.

Clcik Mode > ISO > Write and you should get:


Now just follow the instructions in the pic above, and when its done burning, congratulations! your done!

Now just pop the DVD in your player sit back and enjoy.

Some images were automatically scaled down. Just click the image to see full size!

How to speak with Dragons


Ok speaking with dragons isnt easy. They are one of the hardest animals to talk to. This may take alot of your life but it is worth it

Getting started

You will need some items to be able to communicate with them. First you need to find the globe of communication. This globe can communicate with anything in the universe . It will translate any language. But you can only translate what the dragon is saying and you cant talk back. Theres a solution witch ill explain later. But first you must find this. Try buying a globe of communication tracker at wal-mart. They are hard to find but if your lucky they will have them in stock.

This is what the tracker looks like



Use this to help find the globe of communication. Dont worry it will come with instructions. You can also use this to find dragons. Its a very use full device
There are not True pictures of this because it cannot be photographed. but here is a model made to look like it.

After you find it use it wisely because it can only translate a certain amount of language. Its randomly generated. So sometimes you can translate alot sometimes only a little. After its done it will vanish back into another hiding location.

Secondly
Your going to need to be able to speak to the dragon. For this you will need a special megaphone with a dragon speak translator in it. Your going to need it to be camo so the dragon cant see your using it. (it will attack you if it thinks your not a type of dragon). You can pick these up at your local wal mart as well. They just got the new ones it. They should look something like this.


Dragon Communication

First use your equipment and make sure its working. Find a dragon with your tracker and sneak up on it. use your load speaker and start saying you mean no harm. You are not going to hurt it.If you dont do this it will most likely attack you and you will be dead. Once you are close and he knows you are safe he should start talking. use your words carefully. dragons have a bad temper. So be carefull. DONT TAKE PICTURES. if you do he will kill on the instant you try to take one. Have a fun conversation. But dont talk to long. If the globe dissapears he will think you dont want to talk and prob attack you. and one more thing. dont talk to the black dragons they will kill if you try to talk. They are not friendly at all.

Turn your PC into a HTTP Server


Turn your PC into a HTTP Server

(1)Download the software from this link. (www.rejetto.com/temp/hfs2.0beta23.zip)
(2) After installing the software, run it, set the ip and port. Please set ur own ip.
(3) Add a folder u want to view over net. And add it as real folder.
(4)Now you have set up a http server.
(5) At last go to ur browser and type your ip (the ip specified by u) & the page would open.

Speed Up Firefox





1. Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!
