David Chappell has cranked out another paper on our cloud platform – this time entirely focused on Windows Azure and including details of announcements from MIX09 last week such as support for unmanaged code. His earlier paper covers the entire Azure Services Platform.

jQuery, MooTools, Prototype and script.aculo.us are used in these examples, so every taste gets its due.
A couple years ago, I was working with one of our lead developers and he showed me how to ping for specific Web addresses (and pages) using the MSDOS prompt. Note: these are my Web addresses, not anybody else's.
