I spoke to Noelle Waugh from B & T today. It was the first time I had spoken to anyone from B & T.
The topic of the day was Silverlight. (I guess Noelle doesn't read blogs and hasn't seen the countless posts about this - Josh Gliddon sees some Silverlight, wow - everyone wants to talk to me again, Introducing Microsoft Silverlight, Out with WPFE in with Microsoft Silverlight. This has just been announced!, Silverlight - The next generation web experiences").
Noelle was coming from the angle of what Silverlight means for advertisers, interactive agencies, online content and digital advertising. It was such a perfect change to tell her all about ReMix (still places available - register now)
Some of the questions included:
These were good questions and I think I did an OK job at answering them all.
I also got to mention PopFly, since it's now 'out there'.
All in all, it was a nice little chat and I look forward to seeing the story come out.

I just had an IM from a frustrated Tatham Oddie who is having problems with IE7 and doesn't know who to tell.
He wrote a post - Invalid Port Number in href Attribute Breaks DOM in IE7 and even put up a test case to demonstrate the problem.
He wanted to submit a bug request, but didn't know where to go.
In desperation he turned to me.
So, what am I going to do?
Well, I've written this post.
I'm going to ping the IE Blog team, link back to all the IE team members, Ali Alvi, Jeff Davis, Jeremy Epling, Bruce Morgan, Justin Rogers, Tony Schreiner and Chris Wilson and let the blogosphere do the rest.
Tatham - Here's hoping your problem hasn't fallen on dead ears.

I've been part of an email discussion with Craig Bailey over the past few weeks in which a new user group has been born - the Sydney Business and Technology User Group.
Craig has the story - BizTech: Announcing the Sydney Business & Technology User Group (SBT UG)
Now, this user group is the evolution of the Sydney VFP User Group, and again Craig has the story - VFP: Important announcement concerning the Sydney VFP User Group
This is a really positive move, and one that allows a place for senior developers, team leaders, software managers and software company owners to get together.
Sounds like a great way forward.

**UPDATE** Entry was deleted : Frank Arrigo, Wikipedia & Wikipedia editing policy … again. ,
Last week, an entry about me was added to Wikipedia.
This kicked off a good old fashioned Wikipedia style debate, and the article is being considered for deletion "in accordance with Wikipedia's deletion policy."
I haven't edited the entry and I didn't coerce anyone else to contribute to it.
Right now, there are 10 deletes (including 4 strong deletes) to 6 keeps.
Looks like the days of the article are numbered.
