    Can someone clear up the uncertainly regarding CG and the Large Object Heap?

    Who really needs the PDC?

    • 4 Comments
    [Royo] feels left out because he can't make it to PDC. Well I won't be there either, and I'm really not upset about it at all. Dude, the PDC isn't targeted at you.  You should feel bummed out only if you miss TechED. THAT is the premiere event for...

    De-Scoble-ized

    • 3 Comments
    Yep, I'm taking Scoble  out of my OPML. It isn't that he talks to much- just that he says too little.  Having an aggregator sort of makes him redundant since 50% of his posts are "[X] says [Y]" and I am usually subscribed to [X] anyway. I'll make sure...

    • 0 Comments
    Just kidding... I  almost made it through the whole article, but my brain bluescreened somewhere around this part:   You might imagine that we could virtualize the byref the way we virtualize the implicit property access.   In other words, we could...

    Another item for the VB.NET wishlist

    • 1 Comments
    To whoever is still counting: VB.NET doesn't default to separate DEBUG / RELEASE directories?  C# does, but in VB.NET both build modes are built to the BIN directory by default.   Try as I may, I still can't come up with a reasonable explanation why...
