By default, actors in Akka.NET lose their internal state when they are restarted, for example due to an internal actor error or a system crash. Akka.Persistence adds additional functionality to enable the storing and restoring of actor state. There are 2 main persistence concepts: journal storage and snapshot storage.
A customer observed that if a window has never set any scroll bar parameters, then it reports its scroll bar range as nMin = nMax = 0 in both horizonal and vertical directions. But once you set the (say) horizontal scroll bar range to anything (say, nMin = 0, nMax = 999), then the vertical scroll bar range reports itself as nMin = 0, nMax = 100.

Unfortunately the latter article was largely screenshot-based, and those images seem to have disappeared, so I thought I'd revisit the topic here. Enums are simple value-type flags that provide very minimal protection from invalid values and no behavior.
A few months ago, Jeremy mentioned that SSH support for Git repos was in private preview. I'm happy to announce that it is now available to everyone in both TFS and Team Services. You can now connect to any Team Services repo using an SSH key, which is particularly helpful if you develop on Linux or Mac.
When you use the OpenId Connect (OIDC) or the WS-Federation middleware (MW) in an ASP.NET app, a successful authentication (eg, a transaction resulting in your app receiving a valid user token) results in the production of a session cookie - courtesy of the cookie middleware.
