I watched another great show on DNRYV: Jimmy Bogard on AutoMapper. It is a tool or framework to map from one class to another one, almost automatically. Of course, you have to follow its default conversion to define the new mapped class. If you prefer new names as mapped properties, you can still use methods from its framework to do that.

New Airport Extreme Station

Actually before Apple released the new Airport Extreme Station (AES) last week, I got an Airport Extreme Station (AES) last month on September 5, 2009. I replaced it with my LinkSys router which is a nice model with VPN feature. The main reason I wanted the switch is that AES has a USB port to support USB devices, in addition to its wireless WiFi feature. I prefer to have AES to connect to my external HD from there as my Time Machine backup. This would separate my iMac from the backup HD and make my Mac system much safe. With this USB port, I’ll be able to add a USB hub to connect multiple USB devices to my local home network.

Recently I have time to read MEF (Managed Extensibility Framework) on Microsoft’s Open Souce web site CodePlex. I knew this one for quite a while. I decided to spend time to read the whole document about the framework because this one appears many times when I search for new stuff and IOC/DI. Many places also mention that MEF will be part of .Net Framework 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010.
