    Everything you didn't need to know about me...

    • 0 Comments
    Is now up on the web (I guess it was all up there before, just not in one place) as my interview with mainfunction.com has made it up onto their web site. I think they told me this was coming months ago, so I hope I didn't mention it to a bunch of people...

    New Column Is Up (Laziness .NET)

    • 0 Comments
    My most recent Coding 4 Fun column was just published... a fairly "fun" example, even if it happens to do something a little 'odd' with Remoting over SOAP. For those of you who read it; using Add Web Reference on the .NET Compact Framework side of things...

    Multiple Methods for Auto-Updating, which to choose?

    • 5 Comments
    My last two posts mentioned two different ways of achieving similar results; deploying and updating an application over the Internet. Not suprisingly, I received a comment asking how do you determine which of the two methods to use, a very good question...

    Jamie Cool took the auto-updating technology out of Terrarium and made it into its own component solution for adding application updates to your app , which was pretty cool on its own... but now it is even cooler as PAG (the same MSFT group who brought...

    No Touch Deployment in Winnipeg

    • 3 Comments
    I'm on my way to Winnipeg, Manitoba to give a talk on No Touch Deployment with .NET; luckily I managed to find wireless access at the Vancouver airport along the way. If I had to pick one thing about .NET that justifies a move from VB6 windows applications...

    Punitive User Interfaces

    A discussion on making web forums into more than just technical support, and avoiding user interface validation that scolds the user for not following your data entry rules....

    Hmm... did we launch another Developer Center that I didn't know about?

    • 0 Comments
    Ed Kaim appears to "like" our new Developer Center format... I especially like his architecture model.

    The new ASP.NET developer center has launched at http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net . And yes, having asp.net as a directory name is perfectly "legal", even if it looks a little odd the first time you see it. Kent Sharkey is the Editor/Content Strategist...

    My latest column is up on MSDN, Macro Madness , part of the ongoing Coding 4 Fun experience! Speaking of Coding 4 Fun, or the lack thereof... I'm sitting in a wireless lounge at TechEd, where I have spent most of my trip to Dallas... doing remote troubleshooting...

    Skipped out of work on Friday morning to go sea Finding Nemo with my son. He is only 2yrs old, so he probably isn’t really ready for going to movies as a general practice… but he really enjoyed it. About a month ago I was in Las Vegas and I brought him...

    1st Day

    • 1 Comments
    Woo Hoo, I got a bag when I registered! Lately, I haven't been getting them, something about the "staff" on my registration at all of these things... so my laptop bag closet was getting a little empty. I give these great bags away to my friends and family...
