C o v e r Y o u r A S P . c o m
The first contest is over and the second has begun! It's
a lot of fun giving away prizes, and with no shortage of
component companies offering their products and Sams
Publishing giving me an almost unlimited supply of their
latest books there's no reason to stop now.
The Atlanta ASP User Group meeting tonight was very cool,
right up to the part when Stuart Dickerson (the group leader)
introduced me to the group and asked me to "say a few words"
Needless to say, I wasn't prepared for that so it wasn't
exactly a professional presentation. I'll have to put a
show together for the next meeting now - I'm a lot happier
talking about code!
T H E C O N T E S T
Oliver Mortimer of London, U.K. won the prize at the weekend
and I sent a CoverYourASP mug to the first member to register
points in the contest - all the way to Vietnam!
The new prizes for the current contest are a full license of
VisualASP Component Pack and the excellent book from Sams
"Programming Data-Driven Web Applications with ASP.NET".
Last time only 200 of the 3000+ members took an active part*
in the contest - can you believe that?
The 15 or so members that hit the maximum 500 points had an
incredible chance of winning - between them they had more
than half the points awarded in the contest!
The winner, Oliver, was one of them.
Why not join in? There isn't any catch!
* Every member gets a single point entry into the contest, even
if they don't visit the site, but you get far more if you do!

The recent events at CoverYourASP
- Thanks to Mickey Mullin for another handy improvement -
I've added code to the SetBaseHref function to cope with
the site being run on a different port to 80.
- Thanks to Mark Rose for pointing out a limitation of the
search code. I had previously removed special characters
like % and ', but now I allow you to search for phrases
that contain apostrophes. This and other changes won't be
added to the download until this weekend...
- I have updated the download to include all the latest
changes, including the contest code...
- I apologize if you were affected by the downtime this
morning - yet again it was way upstream of my site. A
couple of the major lines were out for a couple of hours
and many sites were down.
- Since I won't have time to wish you all the best
tomorrow, I thought I'd post a Happy Thanksgiving a
little early! I know you guys outside the States don't
have this holiday, but here it's the perfect time to
relax with family and friends. Not so relaxing for the
- Live in Atlanta? Don't forget to join me at the Atlanta
ASP User Group meeting on Tuesday 27th. It's a very
casual but interesting meeting - this week Andre
Hazelwood will describe his experience building an
ASP.NET site, and Maurice Cantrell of Microsoft will
discuss ASP.NET's "Datagrids and other WebControls".
I'll be giving away CYA mugs and stuff - others have
nicer prizes for the draw!
- Well, the first contest is over, and Oliver Mortimer
of London, U.K. is the lucky winner! The second contest
is now underway with a VisualASP license and another
excellent ASP.NET book from Sams Publishing as the
grand prize! Good luck!

Two new snippets were added:
"Adjusting the date/time"
This describes how to show a local time on your site when
your server is in another country.
"How can I move some pages into sub-folders?"
Ken Hough asked how to modify the CYA code to run his pages
in sub-folders rather than grouped in the application root
If you've read this far, you want to get more involved, don't
you? I'm looking for some of you to join the aspcya mailing
list which is aimed at solving CYA-users problems. Many are
trivial, some are more difficult, but I know a lot of you
have already used the CYA code on your sites and know it as
well as I do!
I'll be moderating the list and moving irrelevant questions
elsewhere on the http://aspfriends.com/ lists, so it'll be
a very focussed list.
We can also have a chat - I'd love to hear your comments
and suggestions about what to do next, even to discuss the
structure of the CoverYourASP.NET site..
Join here: http://aspfriends.com/ASPFriends/ASPCYA.asp
Thanks Guys! Speak to you later.
