Same Assembly Version For All Project

A question I was asked today was how to manage the same Assembly Version for several project I.e. have it managed in one place. There are several way to accomplish this task... the most simple is as follows: 1 Delete the  AssemblyVersion and  AssemblyFileVersion attributes from the AssemblyInfo.cs file in all the target projects. ( this will remove duplication conflicts) 2. Create a new file to host the version (I've called it FileVersion.cs in this sample) and pate the following code into the new text file: using System.Reflection;// Set here the global file version 3.

Can't watch Microsoft Webcasts using Netvision (Local ISP)

10 בינואר 2007

All i wanted was to watch / download Microsoft Webcast... but all i was getting is constant errors from Microsoft's servers and when I did manage to get on with the download I've  end up with 4-5kb/s transfer rate and a error about Server Connection Reset several min after.
