If you have application which are using cookies set by IE, and it stops working in Windows 8. Check the zone setting of your website. Adding the cookie setting page to be "trusted sites" might make it work again!
When I changed my database from SQL Express to SQL Server, my regular .NET application stops working with this error:
Server Error in '/' Application. Could not find stored procedure 'dbo.aspnet_CheckSchemaVersion'. Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Could not find stored procedure 'dbo.aspnet_CheckSchemaVersion'. Source Error: An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below.
After some research, I found out that we need to prepate the regular SQL database for use with ASP.NET applications.
The command aspnet_regsql.exe needs to be run. However, it can't find it if you just run from the normal command line.
The trick is to use Visual Studio Command Line Prompt, which save you the time of searching for the right location of the file.
Tridon Pracitce: A collection of Tridion resources.

I run into some problems with SQL Server Express, this post saved my day.
We pass by the new 49er's stadium the other day. It looks impressive and seems almost ready, check it yourself.
I can't wait for it to be ready. It would be much easier to watch 49er's game then!
I have been following the MIT OCW movement for years, from the earlier days of Audio only to the current video courses, I have learnt so much over the years.
Here is the list of the memebers if you are interested in learning.
Rencently, I become intested in Udacity. The course there is very interactive, and hands on, with a lot of quiz in between. I found that I learnt much more if I am challenged acutally to do it, other than just passively learning. I though I understand everything until I start doing. Then I need to really think and go back to the lecture to get more details.
The best course so far is CS373 Artifical Intelligence , which teachs you how to program a Google self driving car. The instructor did a masterful job of making such a complex problem so simple to understand and follow. At the same time, you know that you are only seeing the tip of the iceberg and want to know more. Superb job!
dotCMS just released a new version 2.2.
The starter website is now based on Bootstrap which is good for mobile users.
I checked their documentation and it seems like a good CMS, although the installation steps can be easier.
A few things I like about this CMS:
- Good plugin framework
- Responsive html design (Bootstrap)
- RESTful XML/ATOM read/write
- Related content, filtering of related content
- WYSIWYG editor (TinyMCE)
I have a few application running on Nodejitsu and have been very statified with the service. Just got an email that they are going to start charging for the service, I guess it is time for me to move on to something else.
There is a very good Python tutorials on Youtube, check it out if you have time.
