Okay, so I bit the bullet and installed WOW on Vista last night. I am going to install the patches tonight and see how it works. If anyone has had issues, lemme know. BTW, feel free to catch up with me on Eredar (70 NE Priest -- SQLVarChar). I don't play as often as I used to but still try to get in a couple of instance runs on weekends.
Very cool article in Wired on Microsoft and openess. This is very near and dear to my heart because I am part of the evangelism group that is tasked with getting the word out about stuff at MS. I just mentioned to my manager the other day that I was expecting to have a chip inserted into my brain when I joined MS to make me "drink the cool aid". I was suprised and scared when I found out how much freedom we have to communicate with the world. With sites like Channel 9 and others we really do want to educate and inform you about all kinds of stuff.
Just saw this on Somasegar's WebLog and wanted to pass it on if you haven't seen it yet.
From time to time, I'll throw out random links to places you may or may not know about. Here are some now:
I'm cleaning out my emails today and noticed this discussion going around so thought I would share a link with you. My position is, essentially, unless you have multiple personality disorder, there really is no need to mix code in this way. If you think I'm on crack let me know...
If you haven't gone through installing VS 2005 on Vista then you might want to refer to these links to help you along the way.
SQL Reporting Services from the forums https://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1376728&SiteID=17
VS and SP1 info from "the man" Scott Guthrie http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2006/12/15/visual-studio-2005-service-pack-1-sp1-released.aspx
Additional VS install info http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa948853.aspx
Some of the major points to note:
1) Make sure you install the IIS 6 compatability stuff in Vista BEFORE installing SQL Reporting Services or VS
2) Get the SQL sp2 and VS sp1 (and sp1 update for Vista!!) service packs on before freaking out that your install doesn't work
3) Run VS as administrator unless you are really bored and just need to kill time with errors that don't matter
