Microsoft’s really steppin’ things up! Three major announcements today: first Silverlight 2.0, then ASP.NET Extensions and now the first public release of the Parallel Extensions library. Unlike the former two,which are due out some time next week, you can download the Parallel Extensions right here , right now! While you’re waiting for the download, check […]
I’m sure we’ve all heard about the ASP.NET MVC framework that’s coming down the pipe. I’m psyched about it, though I think it might be a little overhyped. In all fairness to the ASP.NET page model, it does a lot of things great and I think if you compare the amount of work you’d have […]
The print industry really didn’t like the move by Adobe to integrate Kinkos into Adobe Reader. The backlash was swift and severe, so now Adobe has decided to drop the integration to keep the printers happy. Good call on their part since, after all, the print industry’s support is what keeps Adobe at the forefront […]
Alright, maybe my VPN is slow, but I don’t think that’s the real problem here. It looks to me like Visual Studio repaints everything like 600 times when using it through remote desktop on Vista.

Just announced by Ray Ozzie on stage @ Mix ’07, Expression Studio is now shipping! Congrats to those teams! It’s a huge step forward for WPF/Silverlight because now we have a real tool for the designers to work in.
Sounds like it might have been a mistake to blow Mix off this year. Last year’s just didn’t seem all that compelling, but this year with Microsoft offering so many new web technologies I’m beginning to think I’m missing out. Well, guess I’ll just keep an eye on the Mix07 site. You can even watch the keynote live (starts […]
I can’t get references to work in Web Application Projects in Orcas. They seem to work fine under a regular Web Site Project though. Bug? I sure hope so… To check this out for yourself, create a Web Site and Web Application Project. Make sure you manually add a reference to System.Web.Extensions for the WAP […]
Ya know, the other day before I left for the airport I downloaded a bunch of videos from Channel9 and synch’d them to my zune so I could watch them on my flight out to the MVP Summit. The night before, I had just watched a movie I downloaded from XBox Live Marketplace. As the […]
