My book has finally been published by Syncfusion.
I’ve followed the development of bitcoins for a while and I’ve from the start avoided to get involved (i.e. using bitcoins). I don’t think that there is anything wrong with bitcoin in itself. It’s a real awesome innovation. However, I don’t think that bitcoin will ever work in the real world. Here is why.
Azure and PHP 5.5 didn’t seem to get along very much.
Got a lot of this in the log suddenly (without any modifications):
[07-Feb-2014 05:15:00 America/Los_Angeles] PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'D:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\v5.5\ext\php_sqlsrv.dll' - The specified module could not be found.

I’ve reverted to PHP 5.4 in the Azure Management web. All seems to work OK. Thumbs crossed.
I had a minor down time due to a failing WordPress plugin update. I had to manually delete the failing plugins using the FTP account which is hidden inside the publish profile XML which you can download. Now I manually have to reinstall those plugins.
I’ve updated my windows service helper so that it also can install your service for you (through the command line).
I just read that Mozilla are going to block third party cookies in the next version of Firefox (optional, but blocking is on per default). That’s great. Let’s get rid of the web site/usage tracking that all advertising services has.
Yet again I got shut down by Azure. This time the CPU quote was exceeded just a couple of hours into the new quota period.
I’ve switched to “Reserved” mode which doesn’t have the same limits (which is not said anywhere in the management interface).
I’ve just updated the API for my ADO.NET Fakes library. The library is a complete ADO.NET driver which is designed to aid you in unit testing.
Sorry for being down again. My website mysteriously at all of my CPU quota at Azure = being suspended without notification.
More about that later (or check my PDF blog post in my twitter account)
