A while back I migrated my blog to Jekyll and GitHub Pages. I worked hard to preserve my existing URLs. But the process wasn't perfect. My old blog engine was a bit forgiving about URLs. As long as the URL "slug" was correct, the URL could have any date in it. So there happened to be quite a few non-canonical URLs out in the wild. So what I did was create a 404 page that had a link to log an issue against my blog. GitHub Pages will serve up this page for any file not found errors. Here's
an example of the rendered 404 page. And the 404 issues started to roll in. Great! So what do I do with those issues now? How do I fix them? GitHub Pages fortunately supports the Jekyll Redirect From plugin. For a guide on how to set it up on your GitHub Pages site, check out this GitHub Pages help documentation. Here's an example of my first attempt at front-matter for a blog post on my blog that contains a redirect.

Nick Craver - Why you should wait on upgrading to .Net 4.6
We are not upgrading Stack Overflow to .Net 4.6, and you shouldn’t upgrade yet either. You can find the issue we opened on GitHub (for public awareness) here. I will update this post as soon as a fix is relased.
Update #1 (Jul 27th): A pull request has been posted by Matt Michell (Microsoft)

Luckily, it’s pretty simple to change that bad boy. Step 1 In the start menu, right click on the program you wish to change the icon for, and select ‘Open file location’ (in these pics, I’ve already done the update) Step 2 Right click on the icon and select ‘Properties’ Step 3
Then click on Change Icon Step 4 Pick a new Icon (I used one from: http://www.iconarchive.com/tag/visual-studio) Step 5 If you have it pinned to the TaskBar, you’ll probably need to unpin and re-pin, if you don’t then the job is done – well done you! Extra notes for those not on Win 8+ It’d probably work in exactly the same way for Win 7, but I don’t have it so :p ...(Read whole news on source site)

One of my customers is exploring Visual Studio 2015 / .Net 4.6 which was just released a week or two ago. During some testing I found out that (as of July 28 2015 when this is published) you cannot install SharePoint 2013 binaries onto a server that has .Net 4.6 (or Visual Studio 2015 which includes .Net 4.6) installed. I received the below error message. Since .Net 4.6 is an in-place upgrade of .Net 4/4.5/4.5.1/4.5.2 SharePoint
has an issue with finding .Net 4.5.x after applying 4.6. I am testing out removing the associated KB for .Net 4.6 to see if this is reversible should you accidentally deploy this to a dev / test farm. I’m also testing if you can install .Net 4.6 / Visual Studio 2015 onto an existing SharePoint 2013 farm. Removing associated KB… On Windows Vista SP2 / Windows 7 SP1/ Windows Server 2008 SP2 / Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, you will see the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 as an installed product under Programs and...(Read whole news on source site)
