Killer of Swedish Foreign Minister Is Given Life Sentence

To wrap up a series of earlier blogs - The New York Times is reporting that Killer of Swedish Foreign Minister Is Given Life Sentence. Too bad for Mr. Mijailovic that he didn't do it in Norway - then at most he'd get 21 years. And would probably be let go after 10.

WebService annoyance

So being a WebService newbie I encountered the following annoyance again today (I forgot from my first encounter - hopefully typing this will remind me not to do it again): When calling a web method, any object parameter intended to be passed by reference must be explictly marked as ref The lazy approach that I was used to by now - just passing the object reference without a ref keyword and depending on the fact that my underlying object would be updated whenever I modified my method parameter - only works when using "regular" references. This of course makes sense - a webservice requires the actual, serialized object value, and will create an corresponding output only for return values and method parameters marked as ref or out.



Lookout is one of the coolest add-ins for Outlook I have come across to date. It's essentially like having a private Google, for your e-mail and/or any file folder you choose. Lightning quick and so far (2 weeks) hasn't crashed once...
