I will list out the various document and browser modes with the basic differences.

Steve Clayton: Geek In Disguise : Windows Azure

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.

If you’re interested in the grubby details of how Windows Azure works, his paper is a great place to start – in particular I like the way Chappell demystifies the Fabric Controller.

How do I find out who links to my site?


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.

I'm now in the process of weeding out old pages from my site and rather than setting up redirect-er pages, I'd rather just blow away the ones I don't need anymore.

Can anybody out there give me the step-by-step method of pinging deep URLs?
