Amazon S3 ThreeSharp "Key Not Found" blank characters in key

I know it's been a long time between drinks.

But I've finally found the time to post about my latest discoveries from the land of the Bleeding Edge. I'm currently rebuilding my PC with Windows 7 Release Candidate, more on that later and have some free time.

So as you would know if you have read the rest of my blog I have settled for a hosting solution of this.

Go Grid – App & DB Servers
EC2 - Transcoding, File Processing Services
S3 - Media Storage
CloudFront – CDN

As we near the release date for our product we have been doing substantial testing in the area of uploading from the Client directly to S3 using Flash and then performing Transcoding in EC2.

Anyone who's tried to play with the S3 API knows that it is a beast to say the least, so I choose to use the very good wrapper from Affirma called ThreeSharp.

If you're doing development in .NET with S3 then you would be mad not to use it.

However I have come across one minor problem and I'm not sure if it is with ThreeSharp or is a problem with S3.

If you're key name has a space in the name then you will run into problems when trying to Download the file. e.g. FOLDER/THIS IS THE NAME.mov results in a Key not found exception.

Obviously it is an easy fix but should be documented somewhere by Amazon as I'm sure it's not totally uncommon to have spaces in your File/Object name. Anyway just thought I would share.

Freeing Disk Space on C:\ Windows Server 2008

  I just spent the last little while trying to clear space on our servers in order to install .NET 4.5 . Decided to post so my future self can find the information when I next have to do this. I performed all the usual tasks: Deleting any files/folders from C:\windows\temp and C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\Temp Delete all EventViewer logs Save to another Disk if you want to keep them Remove any unused programs, e.g. Firefox Remove anything in C:\inetpub\logs Remove any file/folders C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles Remove any file/folders from C:\Users\%UserName%\Downloads Remove any file/folders able to be removed from C:\Users\%UserName%\Desktop Remove any file/folders able to be removed from C:\Users\%UserName%\My Documents Stop Windows Update service and remove all files/folders from C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution Deleting an Event Logs Run COMPCLN.exe Move the Virtual Memory file to another disk However this wasn’t enough & I found the most space was

3 Reasons Why Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) Won’t Replace Native Apps

Many people believe Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) are the future of the mobile web, but in my opinion, PWAs are not a replacement for native mobile apps. Here are three reasons why: 1. Native mobile apps provide a smoother & faster experience  Mobile websites, progressive or otherwise are slower and not as smooth. 90% of the time spent is spent using apps vs the browser . The single most significant contributing factor to a smooth experience on mobile is the speed of the network and latency of the data downloaded and uploaded. When you visit websites on desktop or mobile, there is a lot of third-party code/data that gets downloaded to your device, which more often than not has zero impact on the user experience. This includes: CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) JavaScript Ad network code Facebook tracking code Google tracking code The median number of requests a mobile website makes is a shocking  69 . On the other hand, native apps only get the data that is requi

CPF Contribution Rates for new Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR’s)

Recently my wife and I applied and got approved for Singapore Permanent Residency. After completing the formalities the most significant immediate change is the contribution to CPF which is Singapore’s mandatory social security savings scheme requiring contributions from employers and employees. CPF contributions start from the date you obtain SPR status, which is the date of the entry permit.   Being a relentless budgeter I needed to know exactly how much I and my employer would have to contribute so that I could adjust my budget accordingly as the employee contributions get deducted from the monthly salary. After doing some research I discovered that there is a “graduated” approach to CPF contributions for new SPR’s where the contributions gradually increase in the first and second year and then upon reaching the third year are at the full amount. Note: There is an option for employers to contribute the full amount for year 1 and year 2 and the employee can use the graduated ra
