ASP.NET 2.0 On Tour @ Brussels was a huge success

About 1200 subscriptions (if I'm well informed) and a high show-up number. A huge success under enormous pressure due to the circumstances (flight problems for the key speakers of the day, Dave Webster and David Platt, so the agenda was changed drastically during the day). Together with Gunther Beersaerts, I did a session on Personalization & Membership in ASP.NET 2.0. If you want the demo code, feel free to send me an e-mail. I'll submit the files to the web team @ Microsoft Belux as well, in order to put it on-line if possible.

Today, I took a little pause. Yesterday was pretty hectic, but that's life I guess :-)

"Today, I took a little pause"

What's wrong here?

Hi Bart,

I was also there. Thx for the code it was realy interesting but a bit frustrating i have to admit.
I spend a week or more on programming a good login control with a random salt and everything. And now it comes as an standard control. All the work for nothing.
But i got still a question left. When i want to save extra information of the member like his homeaddress. Can i still use the standard controls? I must admit i don't like the profile control for this purpose.
I would use this control for save data like how many posts he did or what theme he likes. But not for storing personal info.
What do you think about this?

Hi Carlo,

Of course you can still use the default controls. To store the data itself, I'd recommend you to use the Profile service however since it makes life much easier. But the way to edit the profile doesn't matter at all, even when you're using Profile. So, you need to distinguish between the service and possible controls that are using the underlying service.
