    ObjectSpaces: The Devil is in the Demand

    • 25 Comments
    On object persistence I’m object persnickety. I’ve looked at this problem space quite a bit over the last five years. I’ve built systems and frameworks galore that provide a multitude of different styles of object-relational mapping...

    Infinite Monkeys

    • 13 Comments
    Guys in lab coats weird me out. I’m not sure why exactly, but I think it has something to do with the mad-scientist look. I want to think they are doctors, M.D’s, but they are not. They are imposters draped in white-coats of authority, doing...

    Gmail: What were they thinking?

    • 12 Comments
    I've been thinking about this quite a bit. Google's proposed gmail will 'read' your email and based on words/subjects/etc that it finds it will target ads at you whenever you go to the site to read your mail. It will store up to one gigabyte of email...

    I’m so steaming mad; I don’t even know where to start. I was minding my own business, surfing a little, reading some blogs, trying to take a break for a moment from the daily grind when I stumbled upon this beauty. It sounded like a real winner...

    The Legion of Doom

    • 9 Comments
    I just thought you would all like to know the truth behind the blogs here at Microsoft. There was something going on that you knew nothing about. At least for me, the blogs that I posted, the comments, the gags, the code snippets, had nothing to do with...

    Hard Reboot

    • 9 Comments
    The bitter chill of cryogenic sleep faded as I began to wake. It felt like bits of ice were still clinging to my skin. The surgical table was hard, though comforting. I suspect anything short of solid stone would have felt gentle and warm after years...

    Aspect Oriented Programming

    • 8 Comments
    There’s been a lot of hype lately over this new fangled paradigm known as Aspect Oriented Programming. You might have heard it mentioned on another blog or in some technical article on the fringe of the mediaverse. You probably scratched your head...

    This little meme had roast beef

    • 8 Comments
    What’s this book-meme thing? That’s just got to be the stupidest thing I’ve seen to date. What are we trying to prove here, that nobody is original anymore? Let’s all follow the leader like a bunch of lemmings racing toward the...

    Being Null

    • 6 Comments
    Something feels like a blank page today. Maybe it’s getting back to work after a sunny weekend and not immediately feeling the need to jump back into the quagmire. Possibly that’s because I reached a certain closure last Friday on a bit of...

    Linux makes inroads yet again

    • 5 Comments
    I'm a Microsoft guy, so reading news about the spread of Linux is often times disheartening. It's not so much the success of the operating system, its just that it feels like you're not in the clique if your not loading up linux on a half dozen PC's that...
