Connecting to .Net 3.0/Soap1.2/WS-*/svc/WCF services from legacy .Net 2.0/Soap1.0/Soap1.1/asmx clients

Sunday, January 25th, 2009

Use BasicHttpBinding: The BasicHttpBinding uses HTTP as the transport for sending SOAP 1.1 messages. A service can use this binding to expose endpoints that conform to WS-I BP 1.1, such as those that ASMX clients consume. Similarly, a client can use the BasicHttpBinding to communicate with services exposing endpoints that conform to WS-I BP 1.1, […]

Chromeless Meebo gets a facelift

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

Meebo got a facelift back in October, but I didn’t have the time to update my Chromeless Meebo Browser at the time. I found some time this weekend to sit down and figure out what needed doing, and went ahead and did it! The new version doesn’t really have any new features compared to the […]

PreAuthenticate doesn’t

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

So we’ve been trying to interop with a web service at work that requires Basic authentication. Unfortunately we get one of the following errors (depending on if we’re going via our ISA proxy server or not): System.Net.WebException: The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive. —> System.IO.IOException: Unable to read data […]

chromeless meebo gets mozilla support

Sunday, August 27th, 2006

I’ve previously commented that I was working on Mozilla rendering support for my Chromeless Meebo Browser, well now it’s here. To enable it you will need my upgraded version of the Mozilla ActiveX Control (As usual all the required files are in the distribution folder). Source diff is attached to bugzilla bug 340277. You will […]

Net Limiter 1.3 Access Violation Patch

Monday, May 29th, 2006

If you’re using Net Limiter 1.3 (I do – it’s fast and has most of the features I need) and doing any .Net 2.0 remoting (GB-PVR does). Then you should know that Net Limiter’s nl_lsp.dll is what’s causing a lot of that crashing (NOD32 Antivirus’s imon.dll also does this). I managed to track down the […]

gb-pvr joins the .net 2.0 world

Monday, May 29th, 2006

The various GB-PVR enhancements have I have been working on over the last while have finally all been upgraded to .Net 2.0. UncleJohnsBand was kind enough to upgrade the Enhanced Web Admin, and ubu upgraded the External Recording Plugin along with doing the first pass on the WDM Recording Plugin. A few minor .Net 2.0 […]

chromeless meebo 2.0

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

Update (Aug 28): I’ve created a Chromeless Meebo changelog page. My chromeless meebo proof-of-concept got an upgrade this weekend (now at version 0.5). It’s been fully upgraded to .Net 2.0, which means that there are no more external dependancies. Also included are: Saving of preferences. Single clicking on the tray icon only toggles the buddy […]

chromeless meebo

Friday, March 17th, 2006

Update (Aug 28): I’ve created a Chromeless Meebo changelog page. It will always have a link to the latest version. Launching Meebo in a “chromeless” window has been a feature request for many Meebo users since almost day one. Unfortunately because of the way web pages work, Meebo can’t really do this. There is a […]

busy bee

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

I’ve been naughty, and haven’t posted any update for almost two months now. I thought that I should give at least a little feedback on what I’m up to: GB-PVR, Jabber/XMPP, Work and Home.

Win32 Ansi

Monday, September 19th, 2005

I’m busy developing the irc-transport for xmpp.py and the debuging output is coloured via ANSI escape sequences. This works great on a linux terminal, or via PuTTY, but not so great in a win32 console. I searched quite hard on Google for a ‘modern’ ansi.sys or ansi.com replacement, but couldn’t find anything. So here’s my […]
