Code and Feminism

Not an intersection, just two separate bits. If you work with .NET code at all, you'll appreciate that I spent part of today being incredibly irritated that a page that worked on my desktop did not work in any other environment. Why? Because the autowireup wasn't working correctly. At some point, when we switched to .NET 2.0, my page lost its links between the controls, including Page_Load, and the codebehind. Seriously annoying. Particularly as that doesn't stop anything from successfully compiling, it just stops it all from having any interactive behavior. Bhavin pointed out he'd run into something similar and had to manually wire up his events. So after 30 minutes of wiring every event I could find, I thought, hey...what if I just go out to the front page, fix the small bit of abnormal HTML VS 2005 is reporting and then just click on all the items that should be wired up. Could have saved myself a lot of time if I had just started that way.

If you enjoy Colbert, Huffington Post has a video from his show where he's cooking with Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem (via Norwegianity) and discussing their media venture, Greenstone Media. Very amusing. I hope they fare better than Air America.
