Knockout is a MVVM framework for javascript. It has been around for a while, but I never spent too much time with it until recently, when pluralsight released a free training that included knockout. My impressions – this is definitely something I could utilize in quite a few places, but it carries a pretty big startup cost, so I’d think hard before using it in a project.

Calculate SHA hex

Forms authentication has an option to use a web.config based authentication. One of the possible encryption algorithms is sha1. To calculate it, you can create a tool in c# (I even did that, but.. I lost it when my drive crashed) or you can use python.

git-tf first encounter

As promised here I’ll share some info on using git-tf. Just started, so the impressions may change but as a starter that should be good enough.
