    Was it fate, or mere coincidence? Today, I checked out a little online message board where MSFT employees sell/trade various used items (computers, appliances, furniture, baby clothes... whatever) and someone was selling one of those new Samsung DVD players...

    Single vs. Multi-File

    Wow! Thanks for all the comments (you can stop now), I think I have a pretty good idea what you folks think. Just FYI, disk space is not an issue at all... it is testing that is the issue, we are going to sign this download and put it up in 2 days......

    Anyone have time for a quick poll?

    If you found a (really) cool download on MSDN, but it was 200+ mb, would you want it packaged for download as a single file, or as multiple .cabs (maybe 10-20 mb each?) Of course, this isn't just hypothetical, but details on what the download is will...

    Displaying RSS on my own site

    • 3 Comments
    Kent recently wrote an ASP.NET control (ascx) to display the contents of an RSS feed onto a web page (for use on MSDN) so I decided to slap it on my own web site to display blogs entries at http://www.duncanmackenzie.net/blog/default.aspx , and I think...

    They had me... and then... they lost me

    I don't know if it is just me, but there are some times when a new product comes out and they have me from the moment I see the ad; the price is right, the features are exactly what I am looking for, etc... Well, that happened this weekend... I have been...

    Great Quote from G. Andrew Duthie on Chris Sells Blog

    Like Card, I earn much of my living on intellectual property, and I don't buy 90% of the arguments in favor of internet "music sharing". In my view, it's theft. If you want to do it anyway, at least be honest about it, rather than trying to tart it up...

    Getting slightly caught up...

    Well, I haven't produced anything of staggering brillance tonight, but I'm a little less behind on some of my writing obligations (now those SAMS editors will stop posting my picture in the coffee room with nasty words beneath it)... still behind on 3...

    Ugh.. I want to code...

    • 2 Comments
    I have a bunch of writing to do, but what I really want to do is code! It turns out I have a bunch of coding to do as well... but the writing is more overdue than the coding (at the moment)! Of course, I could just say to hell with them both and go...

    Some new MSDN links of note

    • 1 Comments
    You probably already subscribe to the MSDN RSS feeds, so this might be a duplication but here goes; Drag and Drop in VB.NET finally gets covered ... an important topic that needed some more attention gets its own article from Steve Hoag of the VB...

    Hey, my glasses made it onto a blog

    Kent has been posting pics and my glasses made it into the shot ! Wow, this is pretty exciting, I think I'll go lie down. Here's another pic from that day... just to keep up with the trend; note the lack of glasses... generally a sign of a bad day...

    Hmm... maybe Chris Sells has a point, no more interviews at Microsoft

    I took the test Chris has been talking about , ended up as an ENTJ as well... I didn't read the descriptions before or after... but I think I get the general idea. As Chris was saying, I bet we could come up with quite a few similar traits amongst...
