I'm still alive -- Been swamped preparing for ASPConnections, a regional user group talk in southern california on Tuesday, October 14th (Which you should come to if you are in the area), and PDC...  The User Group is going to be fun, talking about Visual Studio "Whidbey" and ASP.NET 2.0 stuff -- a little before PDC even! 

As for PDC -- we have a lot of great stuff in the pipe to give you all a glimpse into ASP.NET 2.0 and Visual Studio "Whidbey" whether you are there or not.  I'll make sure everyone can find the content once it is ready.

Make sure you say hello if you are at any of these events coming up!
