I'm back from vacation, refreshed and ready for the TechEd 2004! I'm just about to meet with Anson and talk about our presentation “Visual C# 2005: IDE Enhancements for the C# Developer”. We will be demo heavy and if there is a feature you've heard about or want to see in action then let us know and we'll do our best to accomodate it.

Oh and a brief “sign of the times“ from our trip back to Australia. On the way to Australia my son Ethan (nearly 3 years old) was carrying his bunny toy as he walked through the scanners at the airport. The guards stopped him and asked him to put the toy in a container so it could be scanned. When we came back into the States and went through security at LA, Ethan saw us putting our bags through the scanner and went all by himself, grabbed a container and put his bunny into it. It was one of those moments when you realise that his world will be very different from the one that I grew up in!
