Domains available

In my effort to make myself an ex-GoDaddy customer, I have 3 domains left to transfer or let expire.

Two of them I’m making available to transfer to anyone who wants them (rather than letting them expire so that you would have to pay the recovery fee).

Anyone want these domain names before I let them expire?

Both are currently parked and have no viewership to speak of.

    Hello Chad
    I’d like whackcoder

    Hi Chad.  Would you mind clarifying one thing from your web frameworks post 

    After reading your post I do now realize that the base Controller class in mvc is a violation of SRP, but I’m not sure I understand why that matters.  It seems like just a convenient, simple base class that MS is giving me that supports most if not all of the things I would need my controller to do—render a view, render a parital view, render an action, etc etc.

    I can understand why *I* shouldn’t write a huge class that does multiple things, since that’ll make maintenance harder down the road.  But what specific maintenance problems can I honestly expect from this base controller class that MS wrote?  Or is this just ideological purity?  

    • It’s not just ideological purity, it’s actually quite practical. When we first started our project using ASP.NET MVC 2 Beta, we needed to tweak something in the way a route was determined, in another controller how some of the model binding worked, and overall how the result of controller action was passed to a view  (we wanted to do one-model-in, one-model-out).  

      Most of these things were handled in rather long methods in the base Controller class.  If you wanted to tweak one line of code, you necessarily had to override a 300-line method which constituted 50% of the functionality of MVC’s model binding (or something like that).

      By the time we had changed just those three things (something we used to refer to as Opinionated MVC — google for some videos of talks we gave), we had replaced more than 75% of ASP.NET MVC (by one reckoning).

      I hope things have gotten better in MVC3 and now MVC4, but I imagine the fundamental problems are still there and it is still difficult to override something small without necessarily having to override something big.

  • Hey Chad, a couple of developers at Go Daddy sent this post my way. I’m disappointed to hear you’re moving away, but want to offer to help with any of your Go Daddy services, ease the transition or just take some of your feedback – from you or any other of the Los Techies bloggers.
