(formerly C# Resources, originally published Jan 13, 2010 @ 22:11 Edit)

Here are some links that I have found useful while learning C#, MSSQL and ASP.NET. Perhaps it’s just a big bookmark for me. These links are gleaned from looking at a lot of google…

I gota get back to this link ASAP

Might be good reference for the BIG cis 258 assignment





MySql stuff

These helped me to learn how to implement and use the MySql connector from mysql.org (sun) The www.geekpedia.com site looked to have many articles on many different programming languages.

Great tutorials

www.learnvisualstudio.net has a bunch of video tutorials. I found the site from some Microsoft MSDN video tutorials hosted at learnvisualstudio.net they were free, however most of the others at learvisualstudio.net require a subscription. I think pay up as the quality of the tutorials in my opinion appears to be well worth the subscription price.

I’m sure you know about www.msdn.com but if not it’s well worth a look. And a second look too. With so much information I find it hard to find what I’m looking for. When my searches aren’t working I try to find some different keywords to get to the same information I’m looking for. Sometimes starting at the home for whatever language you are working on.

I copied and pasted these link from Tom’s (.cs/asp.net instructor) ado lecture.

Eventually I’ll finish this cis 258 asp.net class at the end of June 2010. As I have no summer classes – Well Weeee! Here are a couple links that looked very intriguing and that I’d like to work through to learn more nifty asp stuff.

My first plaster mold

OK well it’s my first plaster mold in about four decades….

I’m taking a ceramics course at Spokane Falls Community College. At the time of this writing I’m a bit less than half way through my third quarter. (see back2school section of this site)

Among other projects I’m attempting to make several Propeller beanies that are the logo of a microprocessor by Parallax.com I’ve created several projects with. (click here for a view of the logo). You see I also like to program computers and dabble a bit in electronics, artificial intelligence and robotics… (see nerding and projects of this site)

I can really see where a properly designed and setup studio would be nice. I did this on my garage work bench. I’ll grab a shot of the clean up when I document the removal of the mold from this casting rig.

Click on these pictures for enlargements.

PlasterMold-0413 Here I am a bit into the project. You can see the clay dam I’ve constructed on a bat surrounding the hemispherical shape of the beanie I created on a throwing wheel. There is some petroleum jelly I’m using on the bat and the beanie where I don’t want the plaster to stick.

PlasterMold-0417 The plaster and the stainless steel mixing bowl I liberated from my kitchen.

PlasterMold-0418 All greased up now.

 PlasterMold-0419 The mold is full of the plaster now. It’s begun to setup thickly in less than thirty minutes.


I’ll probably just edit this and repost tomorrow after I’ve removed the mold from the cast.

Wow before submitting this to my site for publishing I went out and checked the plaster. It’s setup pretty solid already. About thirty or forty minutes now. The book I read said let them dry for a week. Think I’ll go check that for context might have that wrong…
