Merry Christmas from SilverlightCream -- Here's a whole bunch of things that found it's way into SilverlightCream over the last couple weeks but for one reason or another was never blogged... enjoy!

Cream will continue to flow along with the Eggnog during the holidays, so as you get your fun projects ready for prime time, send them along! I've got one Farseer Physics tutorial from Andy Beaulieu, and Michael Washington pointed me at a great set of SL1.0 controls from Jaime Rodriguez From SilverlightCream.com: Getting Started with Farseer Physics and Silverlight We've seen the Farseer Physics Engine in other things...

A few from today, I'll catch up over the weekend when I can get into the database: 2 Parts of a series from Dave Wheeler on building a SL Media player, and Liquid Boy discusses uploading images to Flickr. From SilverlightCream.com: So what is Silverlight?

In Support of Local User Groups
Yes I'm going to discuss this again, so if you know me personally, or have heard me talk about it before, just click the "Delete" button :) Somewhere around the fall of 2003 I was working for what was essentially a failed dot com. The product was great, but nobody could figure out how to get US banks to buy into it. Maybe someday, but not then, and not even now for the unfortunate folks that are still trying to make it work. I was working from home, elbow-deep in Win32, MFC, platform SDK in C++, ......

Everybody must be in 'Holiday' mode. No submittals, so I'm going with product I've found: Tafiti is now on CodePlex, SL Christmas Cards, XAMLPad 3.0, SL 1.0 Template in VS2008, and Telerik announces their new RAD controls. From SilverlightCream.com: silverlight search app goes shared source Tim Heuer reports that the Tafiti search site is now on CodePlex -- how cool is that? ... code to look at inbetween putting Christmas toys together :) Silverlight Christmas Cards Tim Sneath has a collection of ......

Get a free copy of ASP.NET AJAX In Action
I have this book, and it's the one that kicked me past the point of wanting to use AJAX and actually doing so... good stuff, a good read, and on-topic. I haven't read it all. I took potshots where I looked for information to get the job done, and even reading that way, it worked! So go over to Encosia, and follow the instructions to try to win one of the 3 copies Dave is giving away. The 'first comment' is undoubtedly gone by now, but there's two others up for grabs... trust me, you won't be disappointed ......

Frank of Frank's World has produced the first (that I'm aware of) Silverlight Christmas Card. From SilverlightCream.com: Frank's World Christmas 2007 I've been wondering if we'd start to see some of this going on this year. In the past I've seen many Flash animation cards. I'm not creative enough to do something like the flas ones, but Frank has bridged the gap :) Stay in the 'Light!

One 'Light Year
One year ago today I blogged my first 'article' on WPF/E. WPF/E CTP'd on December 4, 2006. I didn't see it until the 6th. I read about it and was confused, but I kept going back to it, and kept playing with the QuickStart. Finally I started to catch on and thought there may be something to all this. I got to go to MIX '07 in May 2007, and WPF/E became Silverlight and exploded all over the web. On July 1, I was awarded MVP: Visual Developer - Client Application Development, 'nuff said! I'm sitting ......

Rick Barraza at CynergySystems, fresh back from winning PhizzPop, posts a very nice Custom Animation tutorial From SilverlightCream.com: Dirty Dozen #03: Custom Animations This is *way* cool to watch... I haven't looked at the code yet, but it's definitely there! The only negative comment I could possibly make is it wants to run IE and FF as hard as possible. Congratulations on the PhizzPop Win!

Now Why Don't He Write?
That's a great line from "Dancing with Wolves". Robert Pastorelli delivered the line about a skeleton that was found: "I'll bet someone back east is going, Now why don't he write?" In trying to answer a question on the Silverlight.net forum, I went to my site as a reference, and found something that didn't work. Hmmm... so then I tried another page and found more 'somethings' that didn't work. I get quite a few visitors a day, and nobody has written to say anything about that Apparently I'm going ......

Some weekend cream from Michael Washington: His Toolbar now scrolls, and has duplicated it in DNN, plus Michael passed in the link to Adam Nathan's Silverligth Unleashed 1.0 Book code.

I'm getting enough submissions lately, I need to keep good track of things I've found myself for posting later!

Fayez Mutairi This One's For You!
I received email from Fayez Mutairi, and he asked "Have you ever seen your blog posts in a web browser"? ... ummm... maybe not, or obviously not in a manner that looked bad I was reading his email on my cell phone, and obviously couldn't see the very detailed images he sent me (thanks -- I did later!). Apparently whatever Mr. Mutairi is using for reading my feed isn't dealing well with my fake XAML titles on my Tooltips -- too bad, I thought they were clever :) So... I have changed them all to remove ......

<SilverlightTooltip Number="007" Text="Layout and Centering"/>
If you're having trouble figuring out where the borders of your canvas are while playing with XAML, or where the horizontal center really is at run-time, this Tooltip might help. There are a couple things I always do while building my page, and as I was setting up a new page today I thought I'd share these with anyone interested.

Friday Interview Follies/Silverlight Firestarter/2.0
Rant warning... just click on to the next! I don't know why I punish myself sometimes... I mean I'm *not* looking for a job, I'm *not* looking to leave where I am. It's a good 'showup job' as my buddy Steve says, and close enough to the technology edge that it feels good, not to mention it pays well. The only negative is the hour+ it takes to drive 27 miles on the Outer Loop. After some email banter back and forth with some Silverlight guys, I kinda/sorta backed myself into a phone interview that ......
