    Another Eight Wines

    It's been a slow week and not a particularly good one for wine, at least for me. At the start of the week, I clearly had whatever the wine equivalent of a black thumb is. To start, I opened a bottle of the Wooldridge Creek 1998 Applegate Valley Cabernet...

    CLR Managed Debugger (mdbg) Sample

    It is very frustrating to write a managed debugger in v1.0 and v1.1. There is a word document describing CLR's unmanaged debugging interface in .Net Framework SDK. But the documentation for System.Diagnostics.SymbolStore is just not enough for you to...

    Going to see the Blue Angels

    For those of you who don't live in the Seattle area, this weekend is SeaFair . For me, SeaFair has always been the time to avoid going anywhere near Lake Washington. The traffic, hydroplane race noise, etc usually keeps me away. Two years ago, I forgot...
