So I am back in Spain, the land of tapas. Currently staying with a friend here in Madrid who has an amazing roof terrace outside his apartment, where we’ve spent long evenings with great tapas and cold drinks. However, as this is my 4th visit to the country and 3rd to Madrid, it feels great to have explored the surroundings a bit more than last time.

So here I am in Yazd, an ancient desert city in Iran. I arrived a few days ago coming by bus from Esfahan, a magnificent modern city. The contrast is enormous, since the old town of Yazd mostly consists of sun dried mud bricks. But I must confess that the ice cream I found today was the best so far in Iran, while Esfahan had the best coffee.
After arriving in Tehran a few days back I discovered that Facebook, Twitter and other fun sites are thoroughly blocked, just as suspected. So I had a coffee and took the next flight to Shiraz, the lovely city in the south of Iran, on a holy quest to find the perfect kebab.
It’s been known for a while that the new version of ASP.NET will take care of an old problem, the id mangling of server controls. In short, your carefully selected id could be rewritten into something like “ctl00_MainContent_” before rendered to the client. Since this is one of the most annoying issues for several reasons, the change is very welcome by us markup-aware developers. All three of us.
Do you often wake up in the middle of the night, wondering about the assembly version number of a specific EPiServer CMS release? Then this reference list is for you.
Just a quick heads-up that EPiServer 6 was released today. Among the improvements is the awaited support for TinyMCE. Good job guys and all that, but please, why market the brand new product with this single screenshot:
Ever dreamed of going on the Trans-Siberian railroad? Google has cooperated with Russian Railways to create a video of the entire trip. If you’re having trouble sleeping, check out the massive 150 hour footage of birch forests, train stations and more birch forests!
Many of you probably remember Matt Harding and his dancing journey across the globe. But you might have missed German traveller Christoph Rehage.
Three years ago, NetRelations arranged the first Geek Meet in Gothenburg, inspired by the Stockholm Geek Meet arranged by Robert Nyman. It was a success and now we return with another one! This time it will be held at our shiny new office at Norra Hamngatan 32 (Nordstan) on March 24.
One of the things I love about the web is the crazy stuff that pops up all the time. The latest buzz is Chatroulette where you can have a video chat with random people. The site was founded four months ago by a 17 year old Russian. It started with 300 users in December and today it is being used by over 1,5 million people each day.
