Hibernating Rhinos 7: Rhino Igloo

time to read 1 min | 176 words


I got quite a few requests for more information on this, beyond the short documentation in this post. This is not something that I was very happy with because I feel that Rhino Igloo represents a compromise that I am not very happy with. Consider this the product of a developer longing for MonoRail while having to deal with WebForms world.

I am not making excuses for this project, it is meant to serve a very specific goal, and it has done that very successfully.It is also extremely opinionated and may not fit what you want to do.

You can download the screen cast here. There is a secret message there, let us see if you can spot it.

Update: looks like the file I uploaded is corrupted, I'll upload a new one soon, in the meantime, I removed it from the download page.

Update 2: Uploaded a good version, it is available now.



It would seem that the zip file is broken :(


Indeed - was looking forward to watching this ...


Error in file #1: bad Zip file offset (Error local header signature not found): disk #1 offset: 1762458.

OK Help


the file is corrupt

Yes, thanks for finding out, I'll make it available soon again.

Probably the upload messed it up


Brilliant - the zip file is valid now ... very interesting stuff, yet again ...

One small odd thing, your mouse hover in debug mode doesn't show the tooltip with the values ...


p.s. Yes I spotted the secret message :)

Yes, I know about that. I found that in post production, and didn't have the will to do it all over again.
