Handy Javascript Syntax Highlighter for Blog Posting

4:16 PM j. montgomery 6 Comments

After sharing my struggles with trying to format .NET code on my blog, my co-worker and friend jeff pointed me to this excellent must-have tool for bloggers who post code.

It's a Syntax Highlighter/formatter implemented in javascript so you don't have to mess with the complexity of posting code to your blog anymore. Just wrap your code in a <textarea name="code" class="c#"> and wow! It supports about 12 different languages including, but not limited to C#, VB.Net, SQL, XML.

See examples on my site here on my blog, or see every language sample here on the Syntax Highlighter web site.

SQL Server 2000 Does What?!?!?!

After hardening a Production SQL Server Cluster, and reviewing the Secuirty Logs to make sure all was well, among many other strange things I saw SQL Server trying to do, I ran across this gem:

Event Type: Failure Audit
Event Source: Security
Event Category: Object Access 
Event ID: 560
Date:  2/16/2007
Time:  11:44:36 AM

        Object Server: Security
  Object Type: File
  Object Name: C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
