  • Blog Post: Help Me Out Contest #1

    I am not much for begging or asking for help. I prefer to try and get results myself rather than have to rely on someone else to get things done... But the fact is that after a few months, I am getting some traction but am not making too much progress with my debt reduction effort. Having cut most...
  • Blog Post: Leaving the ACES/FlightSim Team...

    The time has come for me to move on to another pasture.

Yep, starting Dec 3rd, I will be moving from the ACES team to the Media Center Extender...

  • Blog Post: Extender for Windows Media Center Launch at DigitalLife 2007

    Ok, this is somewhat of an offbeat post for me but stumbled uppon this and thought it was really cool. I don't use a HTPC (Home Thrater PC) at home right now mostly because sich a solution would only make sense for me if my TV provider (DirecTV in my case) didn't provide me a HD DVR. And to get coverage...
  • Blog Post: FSX DX10 - Self Shadowing VCs (DX9 vs DX10 Update)

    Apparently, saying "could have been implemented on DX9" in my previous post in regards to VC self-shadowing stired all sorts of drama on some of the user forums. Although the statement is accurate, I did not explain in more details WHY this was not done and why we kept this feature for DX10 only. This...
  • Blog Post: FSX - SP2 and DX10 Performance

    Remember, my complete blog is now at: http://www.SebbyLive.com/ ( http://www.sebbylive.com/post/2007/11/FSX---SP2-and-DX10-Performance.aspx ) The first point that is worth mentioning here is that SP2 (and therefore Acceleration) do introduce a new slew of performance improvements. These improvements...

  • Blog Post: FSX DX10 - Self Shadowing VCs

    Remember, my complete blog is now at: http://www.SebbyLive.com/ One of the DirectX 10 additions to FSX SP2/Acceleration is the use of self shadowing within the aircraft VCs. For the VC, we use shadowmapping, in a similar way that it is used for the external airfraft self shadowing. This could have...

  • Blog Post: Moving my Main Blog From MSDN to WWW.SebbyLive.Com

    The time has come to finally move away from hosting my blog on MSDN. There are a few reasons for this transition but the two main deciding factors were that posting personal posts on a MSDN blog seemed odd (at least to me) and that I already had my own website to document my various side-projects so...
  • Blog Post: Announcement: Practical .NET2 and C#2 Second Edition!!

    I was planning on making the announcement later this week but Amazon.com bet me to it with their "pre-order" email... I am indeed running a little behind with the advertisement since the release is set for Oct 15th. But I will have an official press release and an update to www.ParadoxalPress.com later...
  • Blog Post: Nice Little Scam... Didn't Know I was that Important?!?!

    I didn't realize I was that important until I got the email that I pasted below, wow " You were recently appointed as a biographical candidate to represent your industry in the Madison Who's Who Among Executives and Professionals, and for inclusion into the upcoming 2007-2008 "Honors Edition" of the...

  • Blog Post: Does IE 6.0 Stop Working When you Have Too Many Windows Open?

    This happens to me at least 1-2 times per week. It's actually not something that is specific to Internet Explorer 6.0, but is most frequent with this app due to the way I use it. The fact is, IE can be a resource hog depending on the websites you visit, especially GDI resources... But there is a gotcha...
  • Blog Post: Interesting AvSim post in regards to FSX and hardware upgrades...

    Was forwarded this really interesting post by Mark Greenblatt on the AvSim forums ( http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=121&topic_id=414954&mesg_id=414954&page= ). I've copied the contents below, but what I really liked about the post is that instead of simply ranting...
  • Blog Post: Which Pole am I on These Days?

    I have to say I have made significant progress since I was initially diagnosed with Bipolar 2 earlier this year. Just having a better understanding of myself sure makes a great difference to start. Knowing my body and mind better, knowing what my limits are and therefore knowing when I need to slow...
  • Blog Post: The ACES Team is Moving!!!

    Yes, too many studios in a small building meant that many of us had to double up in our offices even though the offices were barely big enough. Microsoft is building several new sites but this does take time. In the meantime, they are shuffling teams around in order to maximize the space efficiency....
  • Blog Post: Oddball Spam Email I got Today.

    Somewhat of a twist from the old Nigerian scam emails. Why not just send an email with a quote from the bible and then beg for some money sent to an eGold account. At least this one is entertaining, hope they use the money to at least get some text editor with some spelling functionality :) > matthew...
