    • 1 Comments
    Space.com has some pictures of Mars taken by Hubble this week.  K and I checked out the real thing last night.  The sky was perfect for it, but doesn't look like people up in Seattle will be able to see it tonight.

    Prototyping: Do it right or get it done?

    • 3 Comments
    Given that prototype code has a way of becoming ship code and that one usually doesn't have a whole lot of time to play with a prototype, should one take the time to "do it right" or just mock up as many features as you can in your timeframe?    ...

    Terrible rewrite compulsion

    • 4 Comments
    I just opened a project that I hadn't touched in quite some time and noticed that I was building up my SQL statements by concatenation, which as we all know is a bad idea.  I then felt that old compulsion to start rewriting -- this time to use OleDbParameters...

    The state of blogging software today and the need for Swiss army software

    When I think about all the different tools for reading and writing blogs today, the early days of MP3 culture comes to my mind.  I remember the not-so simple act of taking a song off a disc and putting it on my computer.  I had a tool for ripping, a tool...

    So Friday, I got to spend some time in System.XML.  First time in it actually, sad to say.  Glad to see my old buddies of selectNodes, selectSingleNode, load, loadXML, etc. of ol' MSXML had their Pascal-cased equivalents in .NET.  Hope to take advantage...

    Microsoft, as you may know, has a great internship program.  We expect a lot from our interns.  They usually learn a lot while they're with us and we expect them to work hard and produce naturally.  This time of year in Redmond, the days are getting shorter...

    • 3 Comments
    Nobody wants to post a link to a story that is old news.  All you aggregator writers, how about a “check this link” feature against the recent entries in your blog roll?  That way when I post the Developer Roadmap, I won't feel bad when I realize Scoble...
