[Sam Ruby] It’s funny because I’ve actually been looking at doing the exact same thing this week. I downloaded the source for Aggie which I was going to use…

In real life, you never have to stop to consider whether, for example, the failure of gravity to operate as expected is a possible explanation for some problem. In the realm of computers and software, you’re dealing with abstractions layered on abstractions, and in order to make progress on the higher-level ones you have to…

Don’t Forget RenderControl!. Is it possible to just get the raw HTML that is sent to the browser when a web control is rendered? Yes, but only if you subclass the control.
