    I have a question that I cannot figure out because I can't figure out how to phrase it in a search engine. Maybe one of my readers has the answer? Suppose I have an app with 3 forms: --- ------------------ | | | | | A | | | | | | | --- | | ...

    I'm about to take the entire rest of December off. Common belief holds that I ought to be using that time to reflect on my life, my goals, and my values. Instead I'll be playing with the kids, visiting with family, catching up on all those TiVoed episodes...

    I'm not full from Halloween candy - though with kids ages 4 1/2 and 3 there's only so much longer I can convince them that any candy with chocolate will make them sick. :-) No, I mean the MSDN Events Best-Of Launch series for Raleigh and Charlotte...

    It's a good thing I don't have any events and webcasts today because I have completely lost my voice after a bout with a sore throat this week. It's also a good thing I don't have webcasts today because they are putting a new roof on my house and it's...

    PDC thoughts - Thursday General Session

    Where's Rory???

    • 3 Comments
    OK, I don't believe he's here at PDC. Rory , that is. I haven't seen him all week, and he hasn't blogged about PDC. No one on my team that I've talked to has seen him. He's not rooming with anyone on the team (way to be a team player!), so perhaps that...
