Windows Tools

Source code for all these tools is on GitHub.

ADO.NET ConnTest A simple, free Windows program to test ADO.NET connection strings.

Lines of C# Ever wanted to know how many lines of C# code are in a file or folder hierarchy?  This free Windows program will tell you.

XmlTools Free tools to process XML files from the command line.


After spending too long hacking ASP.NET files to do the same thing, I wrote a simple test client to send Pingbacks and Trackbacks to blogs.

Pingback and Trackback are two mechanisms for connecting blog entries from different people. Effectively they say "I just linked to you from my blog".

All this client does is allow you to enter the values and have it send the Pingback or Trackback. It was useful enough, even if it was trivial to write, so I figured I'd share it in case it would be some use to anyone else out there who's creating their own blog technology.

It's GPL, so it's completely free. Have fun.
