    Last Five Fiction

    • 1 Comments
    In the spirit of Porcaro 's nightstand (his permalink is messed up - too bad), here's my last five fiction books.  On a .NET weblog does one really have to admit he's a freakin' nerd?  I guess not. About a Boy , Nick Hornby Signal to Noise , Eric Nylund...

    Where's Eric?

    • 0 Comments
    One of Microsoft's VPs Eric Rudder started a blog a while ago, but he hasn't kept it up.  I must be difficult to keep a blog at his level when his thoughts are bound to attract more attention than a lowly peon like myself.  I wonder how a guy like Ozzie...

    The Userland Story

    • 0 Comments
    I would love to read the story of Userland software.  Yes, Dave's basically written it already, but there's something to be said for reading on pulp media versus an LCD or CRT.

    Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey.SetValue() and large values

    • 3 Comments
    On Friday my intern ran into the problem setting a registry DWORD to a large value - a value larger than 2,147,483,647.  The value gets set as a string and not a DWORD even though the DWORD should have UINT's range from 0 to 4,294,967,295.  This is the...

    ASP.NET 1.1 on XP

    • 65 Comments
    The other day I decided it was time to rebuild my laptop.  It must have been something about the way the disk defragger bluescreened my system everytime I ran it.  I like rebuilding my machines every once in a while.  I feel like it's a kind of rebirth...

    How I came to Microsoft

    • 11 Comments
    I have asked Microsoft bloggers to tell the story of how they came to work at Microsoft, what attracted them to the company and what was the series of events that led them here.  Here is my story. In 1996, I was a physics major about to graduate. ...

    Wiring the House

    • 6 Comments
    So, tonight I started working on running Ethernet throughout the house.  I wanted a cable hard-wired to the XBOX as my 2.4 GHz cordless phone disrupts my wireless network.  I have to admit that working with power tools and crawling around under the house...

    Echo vs. RSS

    • 1 Comments
    The whole reason I started a blog was because I was interested in the technology behind it.  I wanted to try and really get it and to do that I had to write.  It's been pretty fun.  I have a list an arm long of features I'd like to see and those that...

    .NET Registry Classes, ChooseColorDlg and Coding4Fun

    • 1 Comments
    Messed around with the Registry classes in .NET this afternoon.  Find it interesting that they decided to put them in Microsoft.Win32 and not under the System namespace someplace. Also played with the ChooseColorDlg method on the dialogHelper object...

    What I do

    • 0 Comments
    Caught that XBOX thing on Discovery Channel  on Friday night.  Pretty cool.  I was hoping to see some of my XBOX homies, but no.  I have always thought that working in games would get old after a while, but I have to admit after seeing the show I was...

    On community and synchronicity...

    • 1 Comments
    A bizarre thing about the technology of blogging, at least to me, is the emergence of community and the surprise of synchronicity.  You can be at home on the couch after midnight, watching a little tv, chatting with someone about the Messenger 6 preview...

    Work uses for blogging

    • 2 Comments
    I decided I would try to use my internal blog to keep track of certain docs I use from time to time to set up Exchange server or manipulate my development environment.  They'd once been e-mails, then later modified and dumped onto a share.  Since I am...

    MSNBot

    • 0 Comments
    Cool, MSN Search has their own web crawler now. Building a spider was one of the first projects I worked on at Microsoft back in 1996. Mine was a "web monkey", which basically meant that its link traversal was stochastic. I remember setting it free on...

    Wow.  Surprised to see Scoble on Slashdot just a minute ago.  Went to a Microsoft Community meeting today on the subject of blogging.  Scoble , Goza and a few others were on a panel answering questions.  I have to say that it is a really odd experience...

    Hit the road at about nine. No slugs in the drive-way. Burn down Avondale in the bimmer. Pass a deer on side of the road. Arrive at work around 9:30. Sign into IM and check e-mail. No new e-mail because I check it all the time, even on weekends like everyone...

    The Cambrian Period of Communications

    • 2 Comments
    It occurs to me that we are living in a Cambrian period of communications.  Communication itself has a very long history - as long as ours to be sure.  In the beginning, we communicated with sound and gesture.  Then we learned to communicate via symbols...

    Two Projects

    Here are two projects I would love to build if I ever found time to do it.  I want a news aggregator for PocketPC written to use the compact framework.  No doubt a product like this exists somewhere and if you're reading this, feel free to drop the...

    a little of this, a little of that

    I feel like I am .NET evangelist lately.  I have brothers-in-law asking me about it, my intern is full of questions about it, even some of the non-techno people at MS are asking how hard it is to jump on board.  I am not an evangelist strictly speaking...
