Majestic-12 : Projects : C# HTML parser (.NET)

Free .NET HTML parser (C#) is an open source high-performance .NET C# module that was created to parse HTML for links, indexing and other purposes. Full source code (~5k lines) is available under BSD license (this means you can use it in your commercial applications). This cross-platform code is verified to run very well under Mono. The parser is 100% self-contained managed code that does not depend on any external DLLs apart from core .NET libraries. We use this parser to process well over 3 TB of HTML every day.

Auto logon in Vista

Specially on home machines it is annoying to enter username, password on every restart. To avoid this in Vista, click at Start and type “netplwiz” in the search box.  User Account window will open. Uncheck “Users must enter a username and password to use this computer”.  Then click apply.  Enter the username & password of the account you want to auto logon.

ASP Textbox MaxLength Tidbit – Safari on Mac

From Dan’s keyboard:On my asp.NET page I had this:<asp:TextBox ID="txtZip" runat="server" Text="Zip Code" Name="txtZip" onclick="javascript: zipClick();" MaxLength="5" Width="55"></asp:TextBox>If you notice, the Text=”Zip Code” has more characters than is allowed in the MaxLength property. Firefox and IE 6,7 ignore this and pass “Zip Code” onto the server during postback.Safari on a Mac, however, does NOT ignore this, and truncates the text to “Zip C”An interesting tidbit!!!Thank you Dan.
