  • Blog Post: Seen

    Seen on Dare Obasanjo's email signature: T HINGS TO DO IF I BECOME AN EVIL OVERLORD #154 I will instruct my Legions of Terror in proper search techniques. In particular, if they are searching for escapees and someone shouts, "Quick! They went that way!", they must first ascertain the identity of this...
  • Blog Post: Touch Me

    No, not that kind of "Touch Me". Touch Screens. Touch screens have been around a long time and they have been slowly integrating into our lives: PDAs, kiosks (printing your photos at Walmart, buying tickets at the movie theatre), Tablet PCs etc. It's been more of a slow and steady evolution instead...
  • Blog Post: Call of Duty 2 XBOX Live

    [Update] Infinity Ward is close to releasing an update that will address many of the issues people are having with the XBOX Live gameplay. http://forums.xbox.com/2598446/ShowPost.aspx Also, apparently, every XBOX 360, has 64 MB of memory on board that can be used for downloadable content or patches/updates...
  • Blog Post: Back on the Blog

    I was surprised to see how long I had gone between blog entries. A month in fact! By far, the longest break since I started blogging back in August 2005. My excuse is that I've been pretty busy ramping up and completing deliverables at work while also getting my townhouse in order and getting acquainted...
  • Blog Post: First Month at Microsoft

    It's hard to believe that a month has already passed since I joined Microsoft. I still feel like I have a lot of ramping up to do on the job and on Microsoft and I still haven't moved out of my corporate housing into my house. (although I'm dealing with that this weekend). It's official though! I...
  • Blog Post: Battlestar Galactica

    I noticed Jessica Fosler and Raymond Chen mention the new season of Battlestar Galactica which just started. I haven't watched the season premier (got it on tivo) but I like the show a lot even though some episodes of the second season were a bit tedious. Not entirely sure I'm liking having Starbuck...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft Office Communicator

    Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to 2006 -- I'll have my relocation related distractions out of the way and will really be able to dig in to my new job at Microsoft. I'm really excited about the Orcas release, the approach we are taking with planning that release , my project (Cider Extensibility...
  • Blog Post: Moving from San Diego to Seattle...

    As part of taking a job at Microsoft, I left my job with Intuit (great company), sold my house and left San Diego. It was a really tough decision but a combination of professional and personal factors ultimately made me choose to go and so far it feels like the right decision. What is it like living...
  • Blog Post: Second Week at Microsoft

    After my second week at Microsoft (first week here ), I can say that I'm slowly settling in. I have my desktop and laptop (cool Toshiba Tecra Tablet/notebook combo ) setup and I'm able to build Cider. The scripts the team already had in place to setup up the development environment sure made it easy...
  • Blog Post: First Week at Microsoft

    Everyone seems to use the same analogy for what it's like to start working at Microsoft - "It's like drinking from a fire hose". Having completed my first week, I would say that it's an appropriate analogy. Here are the highlights of my week: The first day and a half are orientation or New-Employee...
  • Blog Post: New City, new house, new job, new blog

    Welcome! This blog is a continuation of the blog here where I talked about Windows development and software. As mentioned in my last post on that blog, the last two weeks have been full of a lot of changes both personally and professionally. The short story is that this is my first week at Microsoft...
