    I posted a couple of weeks ago with some reviews of the production of "Urinetown: The Musical" running in Chicago.

  • Blog Post: My Least Favorite Day of the Year

    I’m an honest person. I value truth, sincerity, and candor. I appreciate people who are honest with me and honest with others. And I’m pretty sure that most people in this world feel the same way. Why is it, then, that it’s considered acceptable by the masses for all of that to be thrown out the window...

    I try to keep this blog about Microsoft, MSDN Magazine, and .NET (when I remember to post to it at all) , however every once in a while I have something personal to share.

  • Blog Post: In the Beginning...

    So a bunch of friends and coworkers have been at me for quite some time now to start a "blog".
