[Jitbit Blog]: New server, SSL support for hosted products

1. New server. Good Friday was a disaster. Our main server was down for a couple of hours. It had run out of the non-paged kernel memory. Thank God it was nighttime. And thank God it was Good Friday. But I've had enough. We are done with our current providers and we are in the process of moving to a brand new server, in a new datacenter (downtown Denver), with a new technology (Hyper-V instead of Virtuozzo) and a new operating system (Windows Server 2008 instead of 2003). I hope we'll finish things up in the next few days (fingers crossed) keeping it seamless for our users and customers. continued...

We had Downtime Today

The short version: Jitbit's email-sending server was down for more than 5 hours. This was due to a technical error. We screwed up. I apologize to all the affected users, sorry for all the inconvenience caused. All unsent order confirmations and license information were resent manually. Most of the support cases you sent us - have reached us, but some may have been lost. continued...

Simulating "jobs" in MS SQL Express

Another post for ASP.NET developers reading this blog. If you think these posts do not belong here, please leave a comment, and I'll consider moving my development articles to a separate blog.
As you might know MS SQL Server Express Edition does not include the SQL Agent service and, therefore, offers no jobs. So if you want to schedule, for instance, your backups, you... can't. continued...

ASP.NET Image Resizing - out of memory problem

Another post for ASP.NET developers reading this blog. If you think these posts do not belong here, please leave a comment, and I'll consider moving my development articles to a separate blog.
Any ASP.NET developer who tries to create "on-the-fly" image-thumbnails in his web-application, sooner or later faces this crappy annoying "out of memory" exception, that is thrown when you use Image.FromStream or Image.GetThumbnailImage. Sometimes it is thrown when working with big (>5Mb) images, sometimes it's thrown for all images. continued...
