I love to challenge my knowledge on a regular basis, just to keep up with the technology and to keep my mind flexible and adaptive. As I am quite certain I am not the only one who likes to do this, I thought it might be nice to put up a page where I will cultivate […]

Be kind, help a student through a simple...
What if you could help this hard working student (shown on the right) to graduate, just by filling out a simple questionaire?

It seems WCF will only honor a specified amount of concurrent connections ( at default this will be 10 concurrent connections ) before ‘freezing’. The most common causes of this ‘freeze’ are : forgetting to Close() the client […]
