Introducing Log4Net Viewer!

Log4Net Viewer is a GUI log viewer and filter for the Log4Net library. By default it listens for LoggingEvent objects sent using the UdpAppender and displays them in a table.

The events can be filtered based on:

  • Level
  • Logger
  • Message

All the details for each event can be displayed by selecting the event in the table.

Tabbed Browsing in IE vs Other features

What features should be ABSOLUTELY present in a browser to make that browser your default browser ?? Is it tabbed browsing? it is full control over BHOs? it is the best security and control available in a browser? is it fancy UI? is it the ability for the browser to conform to the specification to the very last, minute little detail? Is it a combination of these mentioned features? Is it something else?

In other words, what are the things that you want most in IE or want IE to improve?

MSN Deskbar Clip

With the tool installed, you just type "clip <shortcutname>"
in the MSN Deskbar.  For example:

clip blog

And "MSN Deskbar Clip" puts the URL that "blog" refers to on to the clipboard. 
This is really useful for long URLs (such as pointers to MSDN articles, products on Amazon etc.)
