At first glance, C8 seems a bit light on major new features - you notice mostly visual improvements, new locators, stuff like that. But there are a ton of smaller changes, and after a while they start to really add up. There's a lot to like in C8. Stay tuned.

- While not a month owned by Dr. Parker, there does seem to be a theme developing. John Morter goes on a distinctly Parker-esque journey of discovery, unraveling the tangled web that is browse refreshing.
- More tips and MagGems! (I won't be doing a ClarionLive MagGem this week, however - Good Friday is a holiday in Canada and I'll be away from the computer most of the day.)

If you're detecting MSE programmatically and warning your users to remove it, be aware that Microsoft changed the program name and registry key. Here, with Robert's permission, is some code you can use to detect the new version:
if GetReg(REG_LOCAL_MACHINE,'SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Security Essentials','Market') <> '' OR |
message('You cannot use this program with TPS file database.','Microsoft Security Essentials Installed',icon:exclamation)

Over the next 24 hours we'll be moving the newsgroups to a new provider, we'll have more bandwidth and a better server, but with the move will come a new IP address, so depending on how fast your own provider gets DNS updates into their system, you may have a short period where your client news reader software may not resolve to the new IP address. So don't panic if it happens that you can't connect for a short period, we use a top-level DNS provider so it should propogate very quickly. In order to ensure that no messages are lost (left behind on the old server) during the final transition to the new server we'll take the existing server offline for a short period for a full backup and deployment to the new server.

So far neither we, nor the news server techs can isolate what's dragging the server down at various points of time. So in an effort to try and isolate/fix this, we are going to turn off Non-Authenticated NNTP connections. What this means is simply that if connecting with an NNTP client program (Outlook, Thunderbid, etc) you will need to enter in your login information (same info you would enter if you used the Discussion client software). While this move won't necessarily immediately fix the problem, it can better help us to identify who is on the other end of the connections that are fouling up the server.
Hopefully we can get this resolved fairly quickly.

The basic process of creating an addin is pretty simple, and the possibilities for IDE enhancement are immense.
Brahn already has a bunch of addins available for download from his ClarionEdge site, along with some other useful resources.
