  • Blog Post: Half Life 2 Source Code Leaked

    Man, this is a disaster. Half Life 2 forums is reporting (and as been confirmed by a PM at Valve) that the SOURCE CODE (yes you read right!) to Half Life 2 has been leaked out. What this means... the whole new engine for Half Lilfe 2 that so many people have been waiting for is compromised. The whole...

  • Blog Post: Lunch with Steve from FurryGoat

    Today I met up with Steve from www.furrygoat.com . We had a great lunch on campus and chatted about a variety of things. Great, cool guy! I was telling him that his blog was the first one that I started to read religiously and how probably I was one of the few who still read his blog using IE instead...
  • Blog Post: No email for you!

    A company based in the UK, Phones4U, is banning all email sent within the company amongst its 2500 or so employees. This is in an effort to get colleagues to get up away from their computers and interacting on a 1:1 basis more often. This is an interesting concept, but I don't know how long it will last...
  • Blog Post: Intel ROCKS!

    I've always liked Intel over AMD, and I think today I see yet another reason why this is the case. I always felt that Intel is more of an innovator than is AMD (well, the only exception may be with AMD's Opteron (aka AMD64)). Intel has proved time and time again some brilliant engineering. Once example...

  • Blog Post: A view from the [dark] side...

    Scoble points out a recent interview with Jonathan Swartz of Sun Microsystems. It's interesting to see how the other side sees Microsoft and Microsoft technologies. Especially coming from a company that is losing out more severely to Linux than is Microsoft...
  • Blog Post: Fry's eXPerience

    I apologize for the non-.NET post, but it's about Fry's... a geek's heaven. Today I decided to see what all this fuss about Fry's is. I've heard and read many things about Fry's Electronics stores from countless people. To me, being a displaced New Yorker (and still a New Yorker in spirit) I felt...

    click on the map to change your time zone in Windows anymore... Raymond Chen has a great explaination here .
  • Blog Post: CF.NET Development vs. Java/Symbian/etc...

    Brian Jepson points to a great link talking about how much development for the Compact .NET Framework rocks (compared to developing Java solutions for mobile platforms). I had this discussion (CF vs Java Mobile development) with a die-hard Java developer who happens to develop for the Motorola phones...
  • Blog Post: Account Permissions...

    ...take a while for them to propogate throughout Active Directory, especially quite a large one at that. I've been reading various docs theswe past few days and had a few meetings with my manager and teammates. Definitely cool stuff :) Will write more soon...
  • Blog Post: The famous disclaimer

    I should of posted this first probably... Need to do my rendition of the standard disclaimer. This is something the Surgeon General of the US recommends to put on all blogs that are written by employees of any corporation... oh wait, since when is blogging bad for your health? Anyway, here's my rendidition...
  • Blog Post: First Day @ Microsoft

    Ok, as promised, I said that I'd tell the story of my first day at Microsoft... Please bear with some of the parts of this, I'll just go through my entire day from start to end. Last night was the first night that I spent at my apartment that I leased when I was out in Redmond over a month ago. I...
  • Blog Post: Evening Before the Big Start Date

    Tomorrow I begin work at Microsoft. This is the long awaited day since my acceptance back in July. This past week has been really crazy. Amidst all the craziness of setting up my new apartment, and many trips to Costco Home for furniture and stuff, I was really glad to meet up with Sam Gentile , Robert...
  • Blog Post: MSN 6 Error!!!

    Ok, I just went to add Erik Porter to my MSN Messenger list and I got this error: What's up with this?!?!? Granted I now have 150 contacts in MSN Messenger (after adding Erik), but still, why limit to that many? BTW, Erik was still added successfully to my list...
  • Blog Post: Newsgroups & RSS --> why not?

    Chris Sells made an excellent point last week when he said he doesn't read anything that doesn't have an RSS feed. You know, I was thinking just last night that I don't get around to reading the microsoft.* newsgroups as much as I want to recently. I like looking through all the posts in a few selected...
  • Blog Post: Night Out On The Town

    Man, last night was a blast. Went out drinking with Stephen Forte and a few of his friends. Zum Schneider has this great bier... “das Ratler” (or something like that). Had a great time last night! Sucked getting into the city late because some guy who committed suicide by laying down on the tracks ....
  • Blog Post: Left Computerless & Carless

    Ok, well, as of an hour ago, I have been left carless. Completely reliant on other people to drive me places. Plus, I've been computerless since Monday (well, except for my laptop which will have to last me for another two weeks). I head out on Tuesday to Redmond and then the mad rush starts to setup...
  • Blog Post: Linux Reconsidered

    Alan writes a rebuttal to an earlier article posted on CNET about “ Reconsidering Linux ”... I think he hits the nail dead on. “... Linux is innovative? I think not. Since when is a legal DVD player big news on a platform? That's sad that it even gets recognized as an achievement. It just illustrates...
  • Blog Post: Blogger Meet Up Next Wednesday

    Scoble writes: "Sam Gentile is gonna be in Redmond next week. He wants to get a weblogger dinner together. So, how about next Wednesday evening. 7 p.m.? At the Crossroads? If anyone needs a ride from campus, let me know." I'll already be in Redmond next week since I'm leaving NY on Tuesday. I'm psyched...
  • Blog Post: Spammers Suck

    An open letter to all the spammers out there: SPAMMERS SUCK!!! To explain myself, apparently some spammers are using one of my email accounts in the and fields. So, I'm getting some bounce-backs of emails. Damn it.
  • Blog Post: SMTP woes

    Sometime last week I was complaining to Eric J. about how much the SMTP protocol sucks. My primary reason for this was because I was beginning to write an Email Address Validator Control for ASP.NET. Ok, there are a few out there, but I just figured that I'd write one on my own and save some money. The...
