      Posted on

      Last weekend, the good folk at Last.fm revealed version 2.0 of their public API: The new API introduces a user authentication protocol which for the first time allows applications to create user sessions, bringing both read and write services to web apps, desktop apps and mobile devices.

    2. .NET Test-Driven Development

      Posted on

      Has anyone got any pointers on how I should start doing test-driven development in .NET? It’s something I’ve been meaning to look into for years now.  I’ve got all the usual Visual Studio add-ons installed… NUnit, TestDriven.NET, etc.  But no idea how to use them! Usually I learn this stuff on the job, yet from most other developers I speak to – it’s all guess-work! Any advice is much appreciated!

      A couple of hours ago I received an automated email from our Travelblog site, saying that we had a new user registration; which was strange, since we disabled that feature a long time ago!  Great! We’ve just been hacked! I put my hands up in the air, I’d been running an old version of WordPress (2.2) … which I’ve been meaning to upgrade for a long time; but hey, I’ve bought a house, had a…

    5. My WordPress hacked by c99madshell script

      Posted on

      After all the excitement of last Friday’s attempted hack on my travelblog, and the subsequent upgrade to WordPress 2.6 – I thought everything was under control.  Boy was I wrong! A few hours ago I received a blog comment (from a Mr Andrew Wong) on the travelblog: http://www.lee-and-lucy.com/travelblog/index.php?p=5817 check this out!! I clicked the link, my jaw dropped!  It wasn’t an attempted hack, it was a very successful hack… I felt violated -in a digital…
