Presenting the "I-50 Homewrecker"

Came up with a WOD to do in my living room today because I was feeling lazy about going to the park and workout. I'm calling it the "I-50 Homewrecker".

Here's what the name means.
"I" because you are doing it by yourself.
"50" reps of each exercise.
"Homewrecker" because you can do it in your own home and it will leave you wrecked at the end.

5 Rounds for Time
10 Air Squats
10 Sit-ups
10 Push-up Burpees (That means you do a strict chest to ground push-up and then finish like a normal burpee)

This is a scaled workout. If you wanted more of an Rx type of workout then I would do 15 reps of each exercise calling it the "I-75 Homewrecker".

My time was somewhere around 7 or 8 minutes. I just looked at the clock on the wall and realized the time.

VS2010: Tired of form designer always opening

Are you always tired of the forms designer opening everytime you double click on a form to open so now to view the code you have to right click on the file for the context menu and select "View Code".

Here's how to defaultly have forms open in the CSharp Editor and then to view the form in the designer you'll have to right click the file for the context menu and select "View Designer".

Open up a project that has a form in it. Right click on the file for the context menu and select "Open With..." as shown in the image.

Now select "CSharp Editor" from the listbox and select the "Set as Default" button. Press "OK" and your done.

Glimpse for Asp.NET Developers

Last week I watched Scott Hanselman demo a add-on to Asp.NET named Glimpse. If you are familiar with Firebug in Firefox then Glimpse will look very similar. Glimpse allows you to look at all the information of your website while you are debugging to really find out what information is being transferred. You can watch a small demo video of Glimpse on the Glimpse website.

If you are an Asp.NET developer then I suggest you check it out.

Cloud based Windows Domain Server

The problem I have today is really needing a domain server in my home but what I'd really like is a cloud based domain server for home. With having numerous devices in the home and needing to manage permissions and passwords I really just need a domain. When user's change their password on one computer and not the others it messes up the Windows Home Server backups. Plus the people in the house have to remember which password works with which computer.

I've seen where some one was able to do it with Amazon Web Services for a significant price but then it was a hack of DNS forwarding. I wonder if Microsoft has any plans to offer a similar better integrated solution with Windows Azure cloud services. This way I could manage the domain from anywhere and it would be on a very secure and manage network.

I just came back from MS Tech-ed NA 2011 and saw a lot of the capabilities that Azure could do for businesses but I'm wondering how they can help the home power user.

Anybody got any idea's where I could get a Windows Domain in the cloud or is it just a really bad idea?
