    Reston DevLab post mortem

    • 1 Comments
    Not sure why I'm calling it a "post mortem," since I feel pretty solidly in the midst of mortem itself at the moment. Ayman and I had to get up at 5:00 AM eastern to catch the flight back to Seattle, and it's now about 4:00 PM pacific, so feeling pretty...

    PDC05: Over the hump

    The middle day of PDC was indeed the busiest of all for me. The VC++ team held five fairly in-depth meetings with some of our larger customers. I was pleased to see that most of the folks I've met with have at least tinkered with VC 2005 -- they like...

    PDC05: Looking up

    • 3 Comments
    As Emperor Zurg might say, Los Angeles' power outage today appeared to be caused by the high voltage equivalent of failing to connect the plus wire to the plus side and the minus wire to the minus side. Anyway, glad to see they got that fixed...
