    Got Issues? Check out the GotDotNet FAQ

    • 0 Comments
    Well. No one on the GDN team complained. Except about other things. ;-) So I put the FAQ up, plain as it is. Even in the left navigation. I'm hoping this stems the tide for the poor folks who write me day after day about things that don't work as well...

    Hi y'all, The Got Issues Gotdotnet FAQ will be out by the end of the week; I'm just having the team review it before I make it public. I'm also hoping to get a widget on GDN that will let me do what Duncan Mackenzie does on his developer center which...

    "Got Issues?" FAQ coming shortly to Gotdotnet.com :)

    I was sitting in the Microsoft cafeteria I think of fondly as an expanded Starbucks (there's a latte stand on one end, but the entire color scheme might as well be in a Starbucks cafe) with Chris Sells . I was asking his advice about outreach to the Gotdotnet...

    I can hear the Tuvan throat birds sing

    • 7 Comments
    I can feel a long blog post coming on....this one has a lot of interconnected parts. Last night my pals Ari and Laura took me to see Huun Huur Tu, which is a group of 4 Tuvan guys who play two musical instruments apiece, sometimes 3, and do that anomalous...

    Blogs R Us

    • 6 Comments
    Yep, it's a barrel of lame monkeys that the Community Site Manager of MSDN doesn't blog that often. Or maybe the blogosphere breathes a collective sigh of relief. :D Things have been busy here. Not to let the cat outa the bag overmuch (since she's...

    This will tell you the kind of week it was

    • 5 Comments
    I went to Anita Rowland's Blog Meetup Wednesday. Saw Robert Scoble. Saw a bunch of Microsoft bloggers actually who followed Scoble to this strange and kitschy bowling alley known as Leilani Lanes . (You must click on the Leilani link if only to see the...

    Reading technology books at the gym

    Ok, so I made these two New Year's resolutions: that I'd reduce the size of my butt and I'd increase the strength of my brain by learning more about asp.net and Longhorn. Mostly because I hate also sitting around (on my butt) feeling stupid in the presence...

    Ah, people are settling into the new digs

    • 1 Comments
    It's always been hard for me to proffer pearls of wisdom here - one, because I have to go find some pearls to proffer and two, because I never knew when I'll have to use my own blog as a test case for funky things we've done at Gotdotnet (now blogs.msdn...

    Longhorn and Yukon and Whidbey, oh my!

    The year is winding down, and there is still yet so much to be done. I've been bending my noggin around ways to help folks both find each other online (developer asking developer, developer answering developer, developer drinking beer with other developers...

    How slowly we creep back from sleep

    • 3 Comments
    I have to say, the advantages of taking time off is that I actually get to sleep instead of getting caught up in surfing the Net at all hours reading about mad cow disease. :P But I am pleased to announce my blog skin has changed - thanks to Duncan...

    Cheers! I am having a lot of fun playing with this new interface. Chris Anderson's Blog X was neat, but this is really more fun. For all you asp.net junkies, you may be interested in the Uber Webcast week: http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/using...
