It’s been a few months since I have wanted to try this out and I finally have; I am using Elmah on one of my website to track errors.  Thankfully there are very few, but the experience of getting it setup is always worth it.

I am impressed on how many ways it can log, to name a few there are MSSql, Oracle, SQLite, MS Access, VistaDB, XML, memory, and others I believe. I opted for the SQLite option, as Elmah builds the database on the fly if it doesn’t exist (same with VistaDB).

My main reason I didn’t set it up right away was I just couldn’t find a flat guide on how to set it up.  Nothing really says, do this, this, then this.  Well it’s a slow day today, so I took another quick look at the website, downloaded the source, and moved forward.  There is this neat demo you can run from the source by running the demo.cmd file in the root of the zip file.

That demo, it’s web.config, and the web.config located under \samples, was all I needed to get started.  Pretty easy to add the parts to the web.config of my website and get everything working.  A real simple package to get up and running.

Next up, work on filtering out items I don’t want logged in Elmah.

So I received another email from Blizzard  offering 10 free days of WoW.  Sure why not, I’ll run around again for free.  I am sure glad I didn’t start the free trial yet, I have been loading patches for days!  One of the patches was a 1GB is size, I just left that one for when I went to sleep.  Being extra busy at work and getting he house ready for Thanksgiving, I have literally spent five or six days loading patches here and there.

How long has it been, well from what I can tell from file dates is June of 2007, which is about the last time I received the 10 day free time to load up Burning Crusade.  This free trial isn’t loading the new upgrade, but I am sure they just want to get me back in so I want to buy the new version–thingy.  (or maybe get my machine up to date, who knows)

In case anyone cares, there is one main reason I don’t play WoW any longer, I am charged sales tax on the subscription.  It is the only online game I have ever played which charges me sales tax, and I hate it, so I don’t pay or play.  And a minor reason, is you can only grind for so many hours of your life…

GM is been in the shit for decades, they are just pulling new excusses now

They couldn’t sell cars in the 90’s so they came up with leasing for the masses

Then they had all these used cars sitting around from turning over leases, so that caused the introduction of “Certified” used cars to keep those moving too.  This made “Like” new cars to middle America.

Now people are truly broke and hold on to their cars until the government says it’s unfit for the road.  They have no choice.  They have no money left and nobody is extending them credit.
