So it has been a long while since I last blogged. I have been buried under a project and am just now lifting my head back above the water. In the interim, the ASP.NET team has just released the first of a set of providers for ASP.NET 2.0. The first one is the Access provider (in source form and under a Shared Source license), and it will be followed by providers for SQL Server, SQL Express, and Windows AD.  All good stuff.

Also, I'm looking forward to the kick off of OSCON tomorrow in my home town of Portland, OR.  It should be a great show as usual and I'm glad to be a sponsor again this year. I'll be writing about what I see and hear at the show.
