wse 3.0 good times

Im having issues with .NET 2.0 WSE 3… My web services respond fine to one client but not another. Both of which are on my local machine. So you think it would be an easy fix…

The request failed with HTTP status 415: Unsupported Media Type.

I have seen all the advice saying to add <soapServerProtocolFactory type=”Microsoft.Web.Services3.WseProtocolFactory, Microsoft.Web.Services3, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35”/> to web.config… But my configs are all looking good so what gives.

Well it appears it was something funky to do with MTOM – I had MTOM settings off on the client and on on the server. Switching it off appears to have worked :)


Now onto the next issue. Sigh. Do not install .NET 3.5 if you still need to publish .NET 2 Web Services….epic issues ftl.

things to do before 1 year of marriage

  • change passport $150
  • change name on drivers license $31.50
  • change name at the bank
  • close my old bank account that is accruing interest like crazy (not the good kind)
  • make photocopies of important docos.

All of this so I can go travelling without worry that I have changed my name recently… sigh. Its so expensive!!

Ahh well at least I get new passport photos, hehehe

windows vista mce remote control, good times

Well having just spent 5 hours of my life trying to work a Vista MCE remote I am asking myself why, why did I not research this more before I did it. Sigh.

I bought the Hauppauge PVR150MCE edition. Why did I not just get the normal edition? I think the name sounded cooler at the time or something. Sigh.


32 hours at work..

well this week I did a bit of a crazy… me and 2 of the other guys at work somehow ended up working thru most of the night and cramming 2 hours of sleep in before waking up for another full days work :S

well, thats not entirely true, its not like we worked entirely thru the night… we had many breaks to retain some sanity that involved…

  • quake 3 LAN
  • swiss ball soccer (highly recommended – just make sure not to do indoors over other peoples desks..)
  • wrapped one dudes entire desk and everything located on it in newspaper
  • a multitude of drinking games…

Ok that sounds like we didnt do much work but I swear we did. I probably got another whole days work in. However this was possibly counteracted a tad by the fact that the next day I was only at 1/2 productivity or so, sleeping on the meeting room floor on 2 couch cushions with NO air conditioning was definitely the low light.

Good times.

And even better, there is still crap loads of work to do. Ahh. Thank goodness its Friday, woot.  I can guarantee I wont be doing that again though. I have missed 4 gym sessions in a row this week :(
