Maps Mailer is an interactive console application designed to stress test your incoming and outgoing and Mail servers. It works by connecting to your SMTP server and from there generates a large volume of mails to be received by your incoming mail server. Once the benchmark cycle completes, MAPSMailer will display the total mails transmitted per second and the bandwidth consumed.

I have modified a version of the thread tooltip preview plugin I found to work in myBB 1.6.3. It has been running for a few months on a busy forum (20K + page requests per day) without any problems, so I am comfortable sharing the code now.

When using Telerik Rad Controls for asp.net you may encounter assembly reference exceptions when using a more recent version of RadControls against a website compiled using an older version of Rad Controls.

I ran into a small problem in Silverlight today where I was quering a static list via linq and populating another custom list with the result. When I proceeded to modify the values of the second list, the first list's values changed as well. This is when I realised my mistake. LinQ never returns a copy/clone of a queried list, it returns the pointer/reference to the list.

We recently migrated a clients domain from domainA.com to domainB.com. If you are familiar with search engines and indexing, migrated domains that do not have proper 301 redirects pointing from the old domain to the new will cause the new domain to miss a lot of search engine traffic. The new domain will in fact have to start all over again and get re-indexed by search engines which can take months. How do you implement a global HTTP 301 redirect? In ASP.NET, it requires editing the global.asax's application_beginrequest event...
