Getting the following error when you deploy your first asp.net 4.0 website:

Unrecognized attribute ‘targetFramework’. Note that attribute names are case-sensitive.

is most likely because of either of 2 reasons:

1. You installed the .net 4.0 bits after IIS was set up, resulting in the wrong version of the .NET framework beeing registered with IIS.

Most often the above results in conflicting versions of the framework, and so the easiest way of solving this is to re-register the .NET extensions with IIS using the aspnet_regiss tool. Make sure you run it from an elevated command prompt and that you use the correct version (in the v4.xx folder that is, not the v2.xx one). On my dev machine this tool is located in:


and you run it with the -iru flags like so:

aspnet_regiis.exe -iru

2. You haven’t set the framework of the IIS application to the correct version of .NET (4.0 that is)

Change this using either the IIS Manager or the command line. In IIS Manager you select ‘Application Pools’, click the Application you’ve pointed you site to use, select ‘Basic Settings’ in the ‘Actions’ pane and change the ‘.NET framework version’.

This post over at MSDN should also be of great help. Gotta love Microsoft’s documentation!



A good idea?

I really wish someone would release a remake of Grim Fandango for the iPhone/Android. Maybe even porting the GrimE engine to these platforms! If I remember right, Manny was about 250 polygons, most of the backdrops where pre-rendered. Taken together with the polygon count of the rest of the scenery it shouldn’t be too much to handle for a modern smart phone.

If remaking Grim Fandango doesn’t appeal, maybe a follow-up/alternative storyline set in Rubacava or something similar would have greater appeal?

Anyways, I’m sure I’m not the only one longing for a chance to relive the dark and moody open-mic nights at The Blue Casket!

The Blue Casket

Gmailは最近遅すぎますよ!! どうしてくれるの!!

Do I fondly remember the summer evenings spent hanging out on the beach with the gang, or playing football on the fresh, dewy green grass on clear spring mornings? Nope! Because that never happened!

But I DO remember Gods, and how mega-cool the intro music was!


I just have to share this! I do not watch that much anime lately, there just isn’t enough time, and I guess having watched a lot you just tend to get picky.

Anyways, today I happened to stumble upon a little gem called Kamichu (かみちゅor神中). It’s a soft spoken, slow and easy show about a junior high school girl who one day discovers that she’s become a god (literally). But since being a god, and indeed the very nature and meaning of the word god is very different from what we are used to in the Christian part of the west, it does not actually have that much of an impact on her daily life.

As the story progresses her (and the viewer’s) understanding of the gods of Japan and Japanese Shinto deepens, and while she struggles to confess her love to a fellow student, and becomes the commercial hope of a local bankrupt shrine, we get a particularly detailed and accurate picture painted of many of the local traditions and shrines around Hiroshima prefecture where the series takes place.

The story is set in 1983-1984, which of course only makes it better!

so amazing…
