How to get a public key token for a strongly-named assembly

This post by Jeremiah Clark came in useful to me today as I was trying to figure out how to sign my DLL assembly with a strong name.

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of VS 2005 help files on the topic. They certainly exceeded my expectations… 🙂

Bing

Today I was reading about Bing, Microsoft’s latest search engine product. I have to admit, their TV commercials caught my attention, and so did this article:

I checked it out, and for a couple basic queries Bing did seem to return more relevant results than Google. I’m definitely going to try it out over the next few weeks… I really hope that Microsoft has finally come out with a decent search product that can compete with Google head-on. I believe that competition is good for any business and for its customers; up to this point in the search industry, we’ve had lop-sided domination by Google and it’s time to shake things up a bit.
