Wow. This ad is full of cliches, cultural stereotypes, affect heuristics and loads of other cheap marketing tricks. I love it!

Love the comments on her weight from the diet fanatics. All I can see are good core muscles that are non-flexed because of an extremely good and efficient running form, and sufficient body mass to store good levels of energy for long distance running. But since she "only" managed to qualify for the Olympic trials and not the Olympics themselves, she is probably a complete diet dunce.

How about getting someone who can actually drive to review a game that's more on the simulator side of things than arcarde? The GFX are awesome, but gameplay is 90% of a semi-simulator...

Yes, but the ICs would be magical black boxes. These guys built their own ICs.

Does anyone else almost blow a fuse every time he refuses to use shortcut keys to comment and uncomment code? ;)

Love your Word videos, but as a developer I would probably solve this using ASP.NET etc so collecting the data would be less painful ;) Alternatively: could you show us how to automagically import Word form data into a database or Excel? Also: you said something about handing these out. Is there an option to replace the on-screen fields with lines when you print the forms to paper instead of filling them out on-screen?

They're not mourning. They're upset they didn't get to kill him themselves.

I feel like Jack Black in "Shallow Hal". He was hypnotized to see women the way they were on the inside, irregardless of their actual physical appearance. Your video has hypnotized me the exact same way. I'm awestruck!

I thought I read something somewhere (or maybe one of the instructors said it in a video), but I couldn't find any way to post course feedback on Pluralsight.

In your "Building Applications with ASP.NET MVC 4" course you use WebMatrix' simple security provider. I'm trying to combine this with Steve Smith's "Creating N-tier Applications in C#, Part 1" so I put my EF migration/seeding in a class library called "Infrastructure". The problem is that I can't run "WebSecurity.InitializeDatabaseConnection(...)" from the class library. I tried hacking it, adding <system.web.../> stuff to app.config, and adding references, but I gave up eventually and put it in the MVC project instead.

I think that's principally fine really since the WebMatrix stuff is an abstraction, but how would you solve the issue? Would you create your own simple role provider/role system? Keep on hacking to get the stuff working in your Infrastructure project? Make sure your DbContext is initialized before calling InitializeDatabaseConnection(...), so you can be certain the UserProfile table is created first? Emulate all of the WebMatrix tables using CF and seeding and turn autoCreateTables off?

Or is the answer the same you've given before: In a real life project you would script the SQL creation from scratch and not enable migrations and seeding etc?

Hope you have a great Holiday Season!

Well, I have created my own abstraction over membership (https://github.com/OdeToCode/Memflex), but I wouldn't say that's needed for every app. I think it is reasonable to call Initialize functions from all over during Application_Start, since application startup is really tied to starting all the infrastructure services (that's also where you'd configure a container if you are using one). 

So, to call InitiailizeDatabaseConnection from app start, or to call into the infrastructure project and tell it to initialize, either approach would be fine. 

Hope that makes some sense,

Introduction
I generally go by the alias carlsb3rg in most online activities. This has nothing to do with my love of the beer, though I can enjoy a nice beer, but was the first word I came up with when I started using IRC many years ago. Carlsberg were Liverpool's main sponsor back then.
