He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

comment How to add . in base 64 characters
What are you actually trying to achieve? Are you trying to convert the string "1.656776" into a Base64 Encoded version? Clearly IndexOf is not going to find an index for . as it's not included in the variable.

comment Redirect parent window from an iframe action
@BjarteAuneOlsen - I believe this is because the Iframes on JSFiddle are deliberately sandboxed so they have explicitly denied certain features (such as redirect, etc) - there's a danger that you'd use JS to navigate away from JS Fiddle and lose your work...

comment Asp.net forms authentication and multiple domains
Hi Mark - indeed - ideally all of this should be over SSL - which should mitigate most of those concerns - indeed the encrypted data has to live longer than milliseconds as we're talking network traffic and latency. Not sure where the JavaScript assumption came from (I could have been more specific) we were issuing 302 redirects as a response which would get the browser to issue the appropriate request to the next server in the chain - however if I recall correctly this was still relying on query strings - hence the use of SSL. Then we were more limited to SSL compromises.

comment LEGO Brick Color Palette
We should probably update one or other of the answers on How many different colours of LEGO bricks are there? - however the Peeron list is updated as colours are seen, so it should have them all, sadly it doesn't seem to have date ranges on there for "first/last seen" although you can find one per-part: http://www.peeron.com/inv/colortable/3004?ip=0

comment How to prevent automatic emptying of Deleted Items when exiting Outlook 2010?
@ThomCarver I believe there's a Group Policy that can disable this option - typically Sys Admins would clear this and then disable access to ensure items are retained correctly.

comment How to pass 3 parameters to the controller
What values are you expecting to appear instead of datepicker and number? In your current code, these would be generated as the page is processed from the server, and wouldn't hold the details of the JavaScript variables.

comment What causes the NXT Error 1055 in LabVIEW?
The error code is listed as "Object reference is invalid.". In other languages this is usually caused when you try and use a variable that is out of scope - I'd suggest checking your variable names.
