The client is failing to make an HTTPS request with the error message “The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure.”
The client doesn’t trust the certificate on the server. Every time I’ve seen this error message it’s come from a self-signed certificate that the server is configured to use.more ...
I have my web application serving through HTTP over port 80, but the customers require data to be sent security through HTTPS.
How would I go about setting up this application as HTTPS over port 443 in IIS?
Sometimes you need to list the members of an AD group, and either you don’t have the AD tools installed, or they won’t load on your machine because your monitor’s resolution is too low. I’ll let you guess which of these stopped me from loading the GUI. :sob:
We have PowerShell though, and the Community Extensions for PowerShell (PSCX), and they’ve wrapped AD access in a CmdLet named Get-ADObject.more ...
There’s more than one way to skin an assertion. The thing to keep in mind is how the next developer (obligatory “or you in 6 months”) is going to use the information if an assertion fails.more ...
Once you get frustrated with versioning via folder copies, you’ll have to decide what Version Control System to use. Subversion (svn) is a workhorse of a centralized version control system, and still very popular. I prefer to work with a Distributed VCS, and git is my choice there. git-svn is the way you can use git as your client to a svn repository.more ...
It’s what’s inside that counts.
The default comparison for equality in .Net, when comparing reference types, uses reference equality. The
==operator compares the two class references and if they are the same instance (have a pointer to the same address in memory), returns true. Otherwise false.
In most of my day-to-day, however, I’d prefer to use value equality. That’s comparing the values of the properties of 2 instances of a class to determine equality.more ...
It’s the little things.more ...

PowerShell is fantastic! I’ve been using it as my shell for a couple of years now. I was using the git bash before that, and one thing I missed was using less to page data.

The Windows binaries that the OpenSSL project will point you to are linked from this page. But I sure do like installing all the things via Chocolatey these days. Currently there’s no Chocolatey package for OpenSSL.more ...
I was doing a repair on Visual Studio 2015 and it seemed to be stuck at the end, installing an Android emulator IIRC. I killed the installer and fired up VS and saw a very practical error message:
Repair/Modify operation did not finish successfully. Please repair Visual Studio before continuing. You may continue to run Visual Studio, but operation may not be reliable.more ...
I have a class that takes a dependency on a WCF client proxy, the default one generated by Add Service Reference in VS 2010. We’re set up to use StructureMap for Dependency Injection, and the generator also generates an interface. Cool. Wire it up in the StructureMap initialization and use some constructor injection, new’d up client available in my class. And it seems to work great.more ...
Seems appropriate, somehow.
