    Want to win a Smart Roadster Coupe?

    • 0 Comments
    That's right, amongst other things those crazy marketing people here at Microsoft UK have bought us a Smart Roadster to give away. Now I'm a little biased (as I think it might have been me that suggested this particular car) but I want one. In fact, I...

    VB6 Support Lifecycle - What happens on 31st March?

    • 0 Comments
    There seems to be some confusion about what's happening to VB6 on 31st March. Let me start by clarifying that support is not ending . After just over 6 years of "mainstream support" * , on 31st March VB6 enters the "extended support phase" * . In essence...

    Build Server Licensing Question

    • 4 Comments
    We get a lot of questions from customers at the events we run, the answers to which I'm sure will be of interest to others as well. I'm going to publish questions (and answers) that I get and I've asked my team to do the same. Hopefully that way many...

    Downloading Webcasts

    • 2 Comments
    One request I often hear is to be able to download on-demand webcasts. There is a huge huge repository of webcasts on the Microsoft Corporate site but not all of them can be downloaded for viewing off-line. Here in the UK we're gathering a selection of...

    MSN Search

    About time for an introduction methinks - rather rude of me not to have done it before now. My name's Mike and I manage the Developer Community Evangelism team here at Microsoft UK. That means I have the pleasure of working with such luminaries as Mike...

    Smartphone Homescreens

    • 0 Comments
    Okay, I have to 'fess up that I'm not much of a one for ringtones, homescreens, graphics and the like. Probably just my age but I quite like things "vanilla", plain and simple. In the same vein as "don't burden my car with ridiculous alloy wheels or ...

    My new Creative Zen Micro & Radio 4

    • 8 Comments
    Nice. Very nice. 5GB storage in a tiny form factor. I've sync'd 2300 tracks with my Media Center and there's room for a few more. It sounds fantastic. I've gone for the white one and while a little reminiscent of the iPod I have to admit it doesn't match...
