    As I was catching up on email this afternoon, I noticed that Stylus Studio had sent out an XQuery-related newsletter which contained an interesting campaign to “ save XQuery on Microsoft .NET 2.0 ”.

    I love PVRs. They let me timeshift television shows so that I can watch whenever I want. One good thing about PVRs is that I KNOW what I'm watching isn't stale.

    That special time of year has finally come: Microsoft is hosting PDC (Professional Developers Conference) at the end of October.
