Prestwood IT Social Networking Strategy
by Mike Prestwood

Social networking is a bit confusing! Emailing and calling are still the standards. Is faxing still ok? What about Facebook? Do I friend someone or become a fan of their fan page?

The following articles are posted to the PrestwoodBoards knowledge base:

Code Snippet of the Month

This code shows how to ask the webserver where the site's root directory is, and how to convert a relative path (like /Uploads) to the full filesystem path.  This will work across environments (i.e. Development/QA/Production).

string ServerPath2 = Server.MapPath(@"~/");

This gives the full path to the webserver's root directory. 


"C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\Documents\\Visual Studio 2008\\WebSites\\MySite\\"

string ServerPath2 = Server.MapPath(@"~/Uploads");

This gives the full path to the Uploads subdirectory - even if it is a virtual directory in another location! 

...even if it is not a browsable web directory (such as APP_CODE or APP_DATA).

C# Topic:
Definition of the Month: Struct
A value type used to encapsulate a small set of related data.

A Struct encapsulates a small set of related data. Although it can contain many of the characteristics of a class such as methods, events etc., they are usually very limited in number. If several such members are used implementing this as a class should be considered.  A struct can implement an interface, but it cannot inherit from a class or another struct
