    If I didn't have to get up early tomorrow...

    • 4 Comments
    I am getting old. I know it for 2 reasons. 1. I have to be at the MSDN event at 7:00 am on Thursday. As such, I don’t want to be up late watching a movie that starts at 12:01 AM. 2. I am not such a Star Wars nut as I was when I was 12, otherwise...

    Buffer? I don't even know her!

    • 0 Comments
    OK, so the headline references an old joke but it kind of describes my situation. I spent the majority of my years programming in the VB world starting with 3.0. (Don't ask me about the Clipper stuff I did either.) So, not having delved very much into...

    We're putting together some of our marketing materials for next quarter's MSDN Events. I'm interested in your opnions of the session abstracts in this post (read on to find them).

    Sometimes nothing beats a whiteboard

    Imagine you showed up to one of the Microsoft offices in Redmond with a question on CLR compatibility like "Will my .NET 2.0 apps work on the 1.1 runtime?" Imagine that instead of being handed a white paper or given a URL, they actually walked you back...

    Gadget envy

    • 0 Comments
    I've been using an HP h6315 for a while . Despite occassional annoyances, I think it's a pretty cool device. It came with a clip-on keyboard that I hardly ever use (I got a ThinkOutside Bluetooth keyboard that is fantastic). Anyway, a newer model that...

    Wow, my first 2 DevDays (Raleigh and Charlotte) are behind me and I had a really good time. Presenting the Data Access session in the SmartClient track was a lot of fun, and fortunately for me I didn't have any crashes (which is more than I can say for...
