Breakpoints don't work when debugging a dll in ArcMap

Has this ever happened to you? It's really annoying, because one moment is working, the next one it's not. After doing some searching, it turns out there's an ArcMap configuration file -ArcMap.exe.config- that you need to modify. Just change the version from 2.0 to 4.0 and voila!

Improving performance on ASP.NET websites

I came across this interesting article with a checklist to improve the performance of ASP.NET websites. The ideas presented in the article are nothing new, but they are provided in such a way that you can check if your website passes or not.

But remember, don't worry about performance until it becomes an issue.

Firefox 4 is out!

I like the new version of FF a lot. A while ago I stopped using Firefox 3.x and switched to Chrome. The main reason was that the memory footprint of FF would increase a lot when I had a lot of tabs open (I'm a tab addict).

The new FF version seems to behave better, so I'm giving it a second chance.

Lately it's been driving me crazy that when I open an existing Visual Studio solution, it won't open Web or WCF projects because Visual Studio was not run with admin privileges. Time to do something about it!

Check out this link. Basically, you need to check the "Run as an Admin" option in the properties of the VS2010 application. Pretty simple huh?
