Announcing ReminderHero.com – Automatic Email and SMS Reminders

You may have noticed that the volume of posts – and in particular, iOS-related posts – has slowed down over the past month or so. I’ve been busy working on a side project which is now in the public beta phase, and I’d love your feedback!

Reminder Hero¬†is a web app that lets you create intelligent reminders simply by sending an email or a text message. Just describe what you want to be reminded of and when – in plain english. Reminder Hero will email or text you back a reminder when it’s time!

Here are some examples of the kind of things you might ask Reminder Hero to remind you about:

Call Bob in 2h

Pay my credit card bill Tuesday night

Take out the trash every Friday at 8am

So, head on over to http://reminderhero.com, check out the site, and subscribe to the Beta mailing list! Don’t forget to send us your feedback!

“Could not load file or assembly FSharp.Core, Version=4.0.0.0” In An ASP.NET Application

If you’ve ever tried to use an F# class library from an ASP.NET application, you may find that although things work perfectly when you are running locally, your web app won’t load at all in production.

Could not load file or assembly ‘FSharp.Core, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Fortunately, the fix is easy. All you need to do is add a reference to FSharp.Core to your web project, and set its Copy Local property to True. Not familiar with how to do that? Here’s a quick overview.

First, go to the Solution Explorer and right-click on your web project, or on your web project’s References folder, and select Add Reference…

add-reference

In the Reference Manager window, select Assemblies, and the find the FSharp.Core, version 4.3 reference. Check it, and click OK.

Finally, in the Solution Explorer, find the FSharp.Core reference in your project’s References folder. Select it, then open the Properties window (or tab, or pane, depending on how you have Visual Studio configured), and set Copy Local to True.

That’s it! Deploy your web app to your server, and the error will be gone.
