Domotica – WiFi thermostaten

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/02/28

Hier wat linkjes omdat ik de huidige thermostaat van onze CV door een WiFi variant wil vervangen.

Domotica dus :-)

We hebben nu de iSense thermostaaat dat via het OpenTherm protocol de CV aanstuurt:

Remeha Recom software:

EcoBee heeft een interessant product, maar het is onduidelijk of ze OpenTherm ondersteunen:

Quby interfaced niet alleen via OpenTherm met je CV, maar ook met je electiciteitsmeter:

Bwired heeft ontzettend veel informatie over domotica:

Digit’s domotica blog:; hij heeft een Remeha monitor thread:

Microsoft Trademarks – be careful when using product names like these

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/02/25

While some of the names on the Microsoft Trademarks list are very generic (Windows, SideWinder, Arc, Expression, just to name a few), be careful when using them in a product name.

When a company with such deep pockets comes after you, you need a have a lot of persistence and be very patient.

Exception Filter – VB.NET supports this, but not C#, so write a VB.NET wrapper to expose it to C#

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/02/24

Often I explain to people that there are a lot of .NET languages, because the .NET IL is rich, so the individual languages can focus on the IL pieces they do best.

This also means, that most languages have some support for specific pieces of IL that other languages do not have support for.

The IL Exception Filter feature is one such thing. It is supported by for instance VB.NET but not by C# as Junfeng Zhang explains:

C# does not support exception filter. However, VB and IL support it. To add exception filter to C#, we can build a function in VB or IL, then call it in C#.

Read his full article for the complete code.
