  • Blog Post: Goodbye!

    After 4½ wonderful years here at Microsoft, I have decided it is time for a change, and am going to pursue my career outside the company. This was a tough decision, since Microsoft is a great company to work for and I have learnt a lot here, had great fun, and best of all, worked with so many smart...
  • Blog Post: Channel 9 videos are great fun!

    Wow, first post in a long time, and the first in 2006! Since switching teams back in November, I have been settling down into my new team and was then on vacation for a while, so didn't get a chance to post. Well, we have a bunch of cool stuff coming up this year in MSN Search, so I hope to blog about...
  • Blog Post: Whidbey Launch, Live.com and Me

    Wow, I can't believe it's been nearly 3 months since my last post. Time does fly by. Well, a lot has happened in the interim. We finally closed on the last few remaining bugs in Visual Studio 2005 and .NET 2.0 and this Monday, the products were officially lauched !!! It was just over three years ago...
  • Blog Post: Worldwide response to Tsunami

    The Tsunami disaster in Asia has been a sad and tragic event, but I think one bright spot amidst it all has been the amazing worldwide response to it. I don't recall the peoples of the world coming together this way ever before. Maybe the Internet has helped by spreading the message fast. You will find...
  • Blog Post: Impact of the MSDN Product Feedback Center

    Its been quite a long time since my last blog post. We have been pretty busy over the last couple of months (and will be for a few more weeks) driving towards a high quality Beta 2 of Visual Studio 2005 (Whidbey). This next release should be far more stable, secure and complete than Beta 1. We have been...
  • Blog Post: .NET Framework SPs now available on Windows Update

    The final versions of .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 and 1.0 SP3 are now available for download on Windows Update .
  • Blog Post: Smart Client Developer Center

    If you haven't seen it already, check out the Smart Client Developer Center on MSDN launched earlier this month. It's a great place to start if you are looking for any kind of information relating to client application development. It also has an RSS feed . Here is the Windows Forms section.
  • Blog Post: Over 600 bloggers on blogs.msdn.com!

    Wow - I just noticed the count of Microsoft bloggers on blogs.msdn.com alone has surpassed 600! And of the 7 bloggers I know of in my immediate team, 4 have their blogs on a server other than blogs.msdn.com. If you scale that up, the total number of Microsoft bloggers would be over 1400! With Somasegar...
  • Blog Post: More bloggers from .Net Client

    I just updated my post on fellow bloggers on the .Net Client team - we have two more! This is great - there is going to be a lot of useful content straight from the product team. Also, I have mentioned briefly in that post what feature areas each person works on. So now if you have a specific question...
  • Blog Post: Fellow bloggers on the .Net Client Team

    Brian Pepin , the Windows Forms Guru and the guy who knows the .Net designer architecture better than anybody else. Jessica Fosler (better known as JFo) - a fellow developer on the team. She implemented most of the ToolStrip control in Whidbey, and believe me, this control is simply amazing! Make...
  • Blog Post: New Home!

    The move is complete - from blogs.gotdotnet.com to blogs.msdn.com . Many thanks to the MSDN/GotDotNet team for migrating all the content over and making this transition painless! .Text is pretty cool too.
  • Blog Post: Happy 2004!

    Back from a nice month long vacation - will get back to blogging soon. Not sure when the GotDotNet blogs will be moved to their new home, but meanwhile, I will continue to post here.
  • Blog Post: On Blogging

    I just read an interesting  piece  on Internet News  about blogging, in the context of Microsoft, Longhorn and the PDC. I definitely think blogs have had a pretty substantial impact on the flow of information about new and existing Microsoft products. Within Microsoft, a great...
  • Blog Post: OneNote

    While installing the final release build of the new Office 2003 a couple of weeks back, I also installed this thing called OneNote that was optionally offered. I didn't pay much attention to it at first, but last weekend I thought I'd check it out and played with it a bit. Turns out it is pretty cool...
  • Blog Post: Back!

    Back to blogging after a break of about 3 weeks. Added some entries under BlogRoll. I have been meaning to write some stuff about two topics: ApplicationContext and EnableVisualStyles. I will get to it soon! If anyone has any suggestions for .Net Client related topics worth blogging about, feel...
  • Blog Post: Useful blogs

    If you reading this, chances are you have looked at some of the other GotDotNet blogs . If not, do take a look - there are some cool blogs there. An especially useful one is Chris Brumme's .Net notes . Chris is an Architect on the CLR team and his blog has some awesome .Net related technical...
  • Blog Post: Blaster

    Here is a website with information on how to protect yourself from the Blaster worm (and in general, how to keep your computer protected). I have signed up for a session on Friday to help Product Support take calls about Blaster. I am looking forward to this as an opportunity to talk to customers...
  • Blog Post: Me Too!

    So I chanced upon the GotDotNet blogs sometime back and thought it would be cool to have one myself. I am a developer on the .Net Client team at Microsoft. We do all the cool stuff (:-)) like Windows Forms, Control Designers, Designer Infrastructure and that kind of stuff. I have been at MSFT for...
