I just finished the relocation of my site.
I wanted to redirect all request to my old site to the new one. However, though I did know about the HTTP status codes 301 (moved permanently) and 302 (found respectively moved temporarily), I didn't know how to implement that in ASP.NET, since I'm not a web developer. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any hints with Google.
But then I reviewed the .Text sources to see, how Scott has done all the http handlers. From that it was pretty easy to do that. By now, my old server redirect all requests to the new site permanently. On the other hand, on the new server all accesses to the root are directed to the sub-folder blog temporary.
I think I'm going to write a article about it (maybe at CodeProject?), but not before the PDC has finished...
Jim Blizzard asks: How are you going to tackle the PDC?
There are so many products and features that we've heard about only through rumors, best guesses, and an occasional leak or two. At the PDC these secrets are going to have the spotlight fully shining on them.
So what do you do? Do you skim across the top, going to as many different topics so that you have a little understanding of each? That way, after you get back from the PDC and asks you "what's <insert code name here> all about"? You won't stare back with a confused look on your face.
Or do you pick one topic and attend every session that even smells like it dive deep and drink in everything there is to know about <insert codename here>.
Well, I don't know yet, since I'm torn. On the one hand, I am a GUI developer, so want to know about Longhorn, Avalon and Aero as much as possible. But on the other hand, we are in the design stage of a new software product, so from my employer's point of view the most interesting topic is Indigo.
I think I'll try to catch a little of everything
WinNetMag is reporting that Microsoft will make Longhorn pre-Beta 1 available for a small fee and also ship it for free to MSDN subscribers.

Today, the C# team published the most up-to-date specification of the C# language, which includes many improvements over the original proposal unveiled a year ago.

Exciting. However, I don't have the time to read the spec's before the PDC
As announced I've managed to move my site from my home system to webhost4life. I have had some trouble importing my SQL database to the host's server, but thanks to the helpdesk staff I finally succeeded.
Now I have to become acquainted with redirections, since all links to my old site (http://thoemmi.dyndns.org/) should be transferred permanently to http://thomasfreudenberg.com/. Additionally, I've renamed the blog from TFr to blog, since it's more convenient
