I am running late in the project, just cant devote some good time. Well this is all I am done with:
Few things(major, time consuming) remaining are:
I already have a wish list readied for the next release of CodeBOX. ;)
I hope the hype surrounding CodeBOX is somewhat relative to Vista, but believe me the release will just be as fantastic.
So seeking in more of time, whilst preparing for 2 damn Univ Exams and a holiday at Tithal, Gujarat with my friends for 31st, Signing off.

Well, I am quite Impressed by the way CodePlex works (Microsoft's OpenSource .NET project hosting, where BlogEngine.NET is also hosted). Also a friend's site inspired - AXIS Proton. Also off late I spent 'lil time in understanding the concepts of Membership, Roles and Profiles in ASP.NET 2.0. So I wanted to leverage the skills i just learnt into a project.
Project: CodeBOX, nevermind Projects are never without Codes ! (name change required !
Technologies: ASP.NET 2.0 (C#), SQL Server 2000(on server), SQL Server 2005(offsite), ASP.NET AJAX (after completion of project)
Time Frame: Analysis of the project is done, Implementation needed. Time should not be more than 4 working days (3-5 hours/day)
Release: Tentatively scheduled it for
23rd December, 2007 (if i dont go in for a vacn :P) 01/01/08.. da reason is that there is actually no1 tracking me and pressurising me to do da work :( and also GATE and Sem VII taking a big deal of time :(
Finalising a team :P , anytakers? :P Me alone.
Microsft Research Labs has made a new technology that enables Developers to create multi-tier Web Appz with ease in its quest towards Software + Services. Btw Volta was in Alpha phase when I was in Microsoft for an Internship. ;)
An excerpt from the website - http://labs.live.com/volta/
Developers can target either web browsers or the CLR as clients and Volta handles the complexities of tier-splitting for you. Volta comprises tools such as end-to-end profiling to make architectural refactoring and optimization simple and quick. In effect, Volta offers a best-effort experience in multiple environments without any changes to the application."
Hope to get hands on it a 'lil faster...
Also Microsoft previewed an very innovative way of representing Passwords - http://www.inkblotpassword.com/ It uses sequence of randomly generated images and stores 2 alphabets per pic depending on what you perceive in da pic. Nice one.. have a look and try..
