    Building a bridge in France versus US

    • 13 Comments
    Recently I read an article about the newest bridge in Millau, France. Everything about this bridge is out of scale. The highest point is 1,125ft (343m). That's right - its pillars are taller than the Eiffel tower! And the highway is suspended at max 885ft...

    Keeping a cool head about the Open Source pixie dust...

    • 4 Comments
    I just read an interesting proposal from Robert Scoble to "open source" WMP along with all sorts of funny comments that followed. Here is the most juicy part, I think: Hi Bill. I've been thinking about how to make Windows Media cool. You know, cooler...

    Speakers Wanted!

    • 13 Comments
    Brian Moran from NovaSQL sent me an e-mail asking if I could publish a call for speakers. I think this is a great idea, but I'll generalize it a little. You should go and speak to your local user group. Not the other guy reading this post, but y ou ....

    It was a family tradition to always read the predictions from a tabloid magazine on New Years Eve as a form of entertainment. It seems that predictions are going around , it’s always fun attempting to guess the future, and I’m currently in-between rounds...

    Learning to fly --first post

    • 0 Comments
    "Pilots take no special joy in walking. Pilots like flying." You know who said that? Neil Armstrong, the first man who walked on the Moon! I think the human kind is driven by a continuous desire of having something more, being somehow better, grow and...

    Jimmy Eat World - Futures

    • 25 Comments
    I finally got around to buying the new album by Jimmy Eat World. Overall, it's a good effort for a sophomore album. It doesn't approach the quality of their first album, but since so many second albums are really bad, it's hard to fault one that's good...

    New SSB Library and Community Site

    A couple of weeks ago, Paul Murphy pointed me at a SSB Wrapper Class that's included in one of the SQL 2005 Beta 2 sample apps. That prompted an email from the SSB dev lead with a much better SSB library that they had written. You can get that library...
