High-speed Camera Footage, ILMerge, and Me...

First and foremost and are really cool.  High-speed camera footage of...well, you should watch it!

For some reason I went into vegetable-mode watching high-speed footage on YouTube of katanas cutting a bullet in half and a tomato and pretty much several dozen things a katana could cut in half.  I'm pretty sure I got those links from watching Pfaff's wing tsun demonstrations.  I have no idea...

Second, trying to the 3.1 Enterprise Library.  Here's the steps:

  • create Microsoft.Interop.Security.AzRoles.dll and copy into, say, c:\el31m
    • get from 2003 Svr., or install Server admin pack)
    • tlbimp that shiz with
      tlbimp azroles.dll /out:Microsoft.Interop.Security.AzRoles.dll /namespace:Microsoft.Interop.Security.AzRoles   

  • install / build entlib 3.1

  • copy all entlib 3.1 dlls ( and xmldocs? ) into, say, c:\el31m

  • copy ilmerge into, say, the c:\el31m directory

  • run this dos script in there

@echo off
set bigolline=
for /f %%a in ('dir /b Microsoft.Practices.*.dll') do call :process %%a
ilmerge /lib:c:\el31m /lib:"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE" /lib:C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727 /t:library /log:merge.log /xmldocs /out:EnterpriseLibrary31.dll %bigolline%
goto :eof
set bigolline=%1 %bigolline%

  • entlib sweetness...

Seems to work gravy, however I'll be posting on configuring the netTiers templates to utilize this single library.  Just doing this because I'm getting kind of tired of seeing 50 gazillion assemblies after building a project.

Oh My God! How F-ing great! ...and Me

Ok, I think I found organizational bliss...

My mind doesn't think linearly like a lame project manager or MTV meathead.  Nor does it think arrogant-"artistically" like a West-Coast "artist" (i.e. bike messenger working at a burrito cart talking about his art he never produces) or small Italian thesbians (inside joke).

Ergo, the combination of ToDoList, GanttProject, and FreeMind.  I can't over-laud this combination.  It is true hot-action.

So far, the "integration" between the three looks to be:


Any comments on this, please share them.  Especially enhancements, etc.

On a side note, here's a picture set of me and me new son, Liam.  Liam Preston Duvall, born February 5, 2008 at 1:05am.  7 lbs. 10 oz.  19".  Complete stud.
