cType(YourBrain, MyBrain) ... DirectCast threw an exception.
Recently, I started developing new applications around the Umbraco Content Management System. I use the term around very lightly, because Umbraco really doesn't require any constraints on your code (like DNN, Rainbow and virtually every other .Net based CMS that I have used), other than the need to develop in user controls instead of aspx pages - which ......

Scott Hanselman just updated and/or added some terrific screencasts showcasing ASP.NET MVC, which just went wild as Preview 2 today. He talks about some significant changes from the December CTP and walks through several examples that make understanding and implementing the MVC simple, understandable, and (IMO) ultimately sellable to the uninitiated/uninterested. ......

Just created my ChatBack GTalk badge. I'll publish it to the sidebar shortly, but just wanted to go ahead and publish it in a post to see how it works. Source: Create a Google Talk chatback badge Technorati Tags: google gtalk im chat interesting productivity blogging ......

Hopefully the 2008 Olympics will be the least watched ever: Technorati Tags: activisitm, china, olympics, human+rights, politics Originally posted here ......

Robert Scoble has apparently given up on email. He makes a good point for clear, open communication in his latest Twitter rant. If nothing else, the following tweets force me to consider the possibility of 1) defaulting to open communications (blog, twitter, forum) or 2) making sure that my private communication is acceptable for public consumption ......

I had a problem on one of our home pc's tonight where Spoolsv.exe was pegging the CPU at 100% usage. I couldn't find any knowledgebase articles concerning it and a Google query only turned up safe-file results. I ended up discovering that the problem was in the MS Office Document Image Writer spool. There was a job (apparently from almost a year ago) ......

Just read on the GPC Press Release site that Google is starting work on a new open source platform enabling all of its online apps to have offline capabilities. Sounds intriguing. Google Gears marks an important step in the evolution of web applications because it addresses a major user concern: availability of data and applications when there’s no ......

Microsoft has just announced Surface. Just at first glance, this appears to be something that could change everything. I am curious about a couple of things. 1) Will it really be cost effective enough that we will be able to have a coffee table (See the Power video) that sorts our pictures and 2) How in the world is this going to run on top of Vistazilla? ......

I found myself talking to another guy the other day about diamonds and remembered a story listing 10 good reasons just to go with a simple gold band. I went to my bookmarks (three computers later, hallelujah for del.icio.us) and found the link but it was dead. I had to dig a little more, but finally found the list here. I am also copying it below for ......

Google Analytics just released a new version of their interface. The dashboard has been totally redesigned with all of the key statistics right there. All of the old in-depth reporting is still there, but now it has the slickness and ease of a gmail or gCal app. Very nice ......

I've decided to Twitter. I haven't invited anyone yet, because I want to get the feel of it first - however, Twitter is almost impossible to get the feel of without a considerable number of friends/followers... a quandary. I would love to Twitter up a little more organically, so if you are a twitter user, please check out my profile: Link to Twitter ......

At first I was a little shocked... I wasn't quite sure how to feel and I wasn't sure if what I was feeling was anger or fear - or both. I found out a few days ago that starting next month I was going to have to expect a little less each month from my job. A little = 1/3 of my existing monthly income. Ouch. It is supposed to only be for a short time, ......

MSN is looking for a few good men or women who can do the job that other companies probably just use screen scraping for. From the above job listing page: Hand crafted resultsWhen all else fails, and the ranking algorithms do not pass the confidence threshold, we fall back to delivering handcrafted results. Working on a team of approximately 132 other ......

I love it.

Wired News has posted about Google’s response to criticism that they caved to Chinese censorship and also announced the creation of a Beijing research center. There are several excerpts of note which I will comment on below: He said Google had to accept restrictions in order to serve China, which has the world's second-largest population of internet ......
