Posted by: Imar Spaanjaars at Saturday, March 20, 2010 2:40:42 PM in: Web General
A long time ago I worked on a web application for a large Dutch newspaper that provided access to all pictures that had ever been published in the paper, or were taken by photographers employed by the publishing agency.

Upgraded www.DotNetAttributes.com to .NET 4

Posted by: Imar Spaanjaars at Wednesday, March 10, 2010 3:31:11 PM in: Imar's Blogs
Almost a year ago I launched www.DotNetAttributes.com, the site that gives you detailed information about attributes in the .NET Framework.
