  • Blog Post: ThinkGeek, Gadget Toy Love

    What true geek doesn’t just love the site ThinkGeek.com ?   Where one can fulfill their gizmo, t-shirt, poster, plant, science, toy craze of nerddom.  I’ve had a number of items from the site on my wishlist through a few birthdays and Christmas holidays now with no love, so I just broke down...
  • Blog Post: Embedded IE Text Size Too Small (or Large)

    Ever notice the text or font in applications that use an embedded Internet Explorer just isn’t the right size?  Either too small or large?  I’ve encountered this in a number of apps including Microsoft HTML Help Control (for .chm files), Windows Live Writer, and others. Since I couldn’t find...
  • Blog Post: Presidential Candidate Calculator

    This is really cool!  I'm not a big political guy and honestly haven't been keeping up with the presidential candidates as much as I feel it's my duty as an American.  This tool asks your opinion on the top political issues in this race and gives you a breakdown of which candidates best match...
  • Blog Post: Adult Recreational Hockey in Seattle

    Playing ice hockey was always a dream for me, coming from Texas and having played a little roller hockey.  Thanks to a persistent colleague, I found out about hockey in the area.  It is super easy for anyone (a newbie to former pro) to get involved, is quite safe, and a ton of fun! I've gotten...
  • Blog Post: Desktop Wallpaper from Paris, France

  • Blog Post: Post 100 - Blog Stats and Post Highlights

    I was digging around recently and came across an interesting fact... My blog gets more views per month (~150%) than Microsoft official site for my team's product, VSTS Team Developer . Cool.

  • Blog Post: Local: Sushi Etiquette + My Favorite Sushi Opens in Redmond

    I like sushi! Very much. In fact, I enjoy eating raw fish more than cooked fish. Event most all my friends that “don’t like sushi” have ended up enjoying it when my wife and I take them out because there’s just so much to eat that is cooked, or isn’t seafood, or they end...
  • Blog Post: Wow, Just when I thought no one reads my blog

    I’ve got to admit, there are times I really don’t think people actually read some of my blog posts. Then once in a while someone will leave a comment that just totally surprises me. Here’s one such comment… On my blog post “Seattle Downtown Tour, Coad Style”...
  • Blog Post: Noah's Ark Discovered in Iran?

    When I was born my grandmother started a Noah’s Ark collection for me. I’ve grown up with literally hundreds of Noah’s Arks ranging from large enough for a 12yr-old child to fit into, to the size of a small bean with ivory animals you’d need a magnifying glass to see. There...

  • Blog Post: iPod Shuffle + iTunes, I'm Hooked!

    During TechEd 2006, my buddy Jean-Luc David (JL), let me borrow his iPod Shuffle . Oh my gosh!! This little feller is awe some!!

    Sonal Pardeshi is the product manager of the VS Team Test tools and recently visited the Tanzania Serengeti in East Africa. The pictures are awesome!! Incredible wildlife.

    Well in the switch from .Text (and msmvps.com) to Community Server (and blogs.msdn.com), there was a change in the MetaWeblog web service API that allows uploading updated to blog posts.
