PDF generation

New features on the new version of my website. I worked out a little more the pdf document generator using nFOP. Now the pictures that are displayed on the web pages are also displayed on the pdf version of the different articles. I had to work also on the XSLT file transforming my XML articles to XSL-FO.

I still have a stange bug with the link in the pdf. The mouse pointer is changed to show that there is a link but at the top of the text. As much as the text is at the bottom of the document as much as the link is at the top of the text. Anyone is using nFOP?

I worked a lot, tests and develoment, today to be able to have my site running with .NET Framework 1.1. Basically it is working now but I am still having some issue with DTS to update my PROD database with the data from my TEST Database. Sometimes it fails copying datas from 6 tables sometimes from 5. Really strange. I can’t get it. If someone as a step by step dumb way to transfert data from two SQL Servers 2000, I would appreciate.

I also updated the way we work with my brother on VSS. Now we use Draco.NET to be informed of the update of the other and to be sure to constently integrate without any issue. This tools rocks, whenever you can configure it.

It is really really warm here!!!

The trip was good and the organization here is awesome except for the wifi connection, it doesn’t work at all. You get a connection for 30 seconds and then nothing. I could find another place where I get connected for 10 minutes but there is no power supply.
