Excited trip to Albany, NY

I am excited to visit my freind, Lingling and Dawei. They just bought a new house , and we are excited to check it out.

One house, two cars, and a dog is a typical American life which I have seen in movies and imagined in my head. I still have one house, one car, and a dog left. Maybe, I need to work harder on this.

TDD: Testing Internal classes

TDD: Testing Internal classes

Nice trick to test the internal class, plus another trick to test private methods( http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/TestNonPublicMembers.asp). I should be able to test whatever I want to test.

Essential .Net by Don Box.

Like all other books written by Don Box, I can always learn something which I cannot learn by day to day programming. Though I still insist the best way to learn programming is still through coding.

The chapter 7 "Advanced Methods" has a lot of similarities with the ideas expressed in "Transactional COM+". All objects are living in context, and context decides the behavior of the objects.

Good book, recommend for reading.

The best online Computer Science resources I have ever found.

CS Classes

I start to read this when I prepare the CS GRE subject test, this is by far the best online resources I have ever found on Internet. Though I didn't do well on Nov, 2004 test, but I think I learned a lot in the process of preparing it. I got a lot of trouble in ansewring those questions related to virtual memory, cache, pipeline, and also computation theory. Well, I won't say the questions are too difficult, it's just all about myself. I don't have a solid understanding on those concepts , it's also understandable for a geography major. But I still think I am on the right track.
