You might have noticed a distinct lack of blogging for past couple of months, and well, to say I have been busy is an under statement. But starting today I should be back, ready for action. So let me begin with three random links:

Visual Studio 'Orcas' Beta 1 is heading out the door - We've spent a lot of time doing our final test passes and I'm glad we can finally get this into customer hands! More on this later...

Silverlight is brightening up the web - I've been playing around with this internally for the past while and I definitely expect a lot to come of this technology. Again, more on this later...

I got married - Perhaps the biggest news, this past week I got married!

So what's next?  Well there are two things going on at work right now? First is getting Beta 2 ready to ship, and second, working on a 'six-month plan to improve our QA team's engineering excellence'. And again, more on that later...

After coming back from a much-enjoyed vacation / honeymoon I'm glad to be back and getting ready to work on the next big thing.
