Electronic Music

Went through the local Tower Records store this afternoon, and after much ruffling around, found something I liked in the electronic music section. Paul Oakenfold's bunkka. I'm very picky about electronic music, and overall, I didn't like Oakenfold's work much, but I really enjoyed some of the tracks on this...

Communication & Collaboration

I read with interest Sam's thoughts on collaboration and the discussion that started from there. It's interesting because its something that I agree with, but, alas, don't have an easy solution to, either. Something I find even more interesting is the fact that while working around a project might work...

Book Pile & and New Years

I love books. Right now, my bookshelf hosts a very nice "to-read" 11-book-tall pile. Is there anything better than the feel and smell of a brand new book? One of my new year's resolution is opening up to new paradigms and environments, and learning more about scripting. So, today I...

TcpTrace 0.7.3

"I just posted v0.7.3 of TcpTrace." [Simon Fell] Sweet!

Virtual PC

I downloaded Windows .NET Server RC2 earlier this week. I had RC1 running on my laptop (well, my only machine, really) dual booting with my main OS (WinXP). Because of that, I wasn't really using it much. There's been some talk about running RC2 on VMWare, so I decided to...

TcpTrace 0.7.2

Simon Fell just released version 0.7.2 of his TcpTrace tool. This is one of my favourite all around tools, not just for WebService debugging, but for all kind of network and browser related issues, as well :) I have one small suggestion, which I hope you don't mind, Simon: It...

It's a girl!

Sam and Susan are having a girl! That is so good to hear! Congratulations! I hope Susan's feeling better now....

Exchange 2000

Exchange Server 2000 rocks [DotNetCentric]. Exchange? groan. Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of exchange and what it does, but the implementation sucks big time. At least in this servant's humble opinion. Perhaps I'll consider it serious enough when Kodiak finally ships and Exchange dumps that crappy old...

Win.NET Server

Sean & Scott: "...All in all, WNS give you some pretty cool stuff for enterprise development.". Yep, gotta agree. Win.NET Server is way cool. I had a chance to see quite a few of its features in action at the .NET Server DevCon back in september, which was way cool;...

Free-Floating entities...

Found Graham Glass' comments on X# through Jason Whittington's musings, and actually, I kinda agree with Graham, although this is an issue I'm ambivalent about... I think it al comes down to what your problem domain and application type are. So, while I really like OOP¨, I think it really...
