Why, exactly am I doing this?

My name is Dante Gagne. I'm a software tester/dev for Expression Blend, and I've been working with the product for almost as long as it's been around.

I'm working at getting more into the community, and I've put together some training videos in conjunction with Total Training, so some folks may have heard of me.

Simply put, I experiment and play with Blend a lot, and sometimes, I stumble across something cool. When I do that, I like to post it up here. Also, I get e-mail from time to time from people who read my blog, and when I can, I like to post answers here. I figure that for everyone who sends me an e-mail, there are probably a couple dozen who don't.

So, feel free to drop me a message, and if it's something I know how to do, I'll try to post a response here. Otherwise, enjoy my ramblings, and let me know if you find something particularly useful :).
