Desert Code Camp IV behind us
Many thanks to Lorin Thwaits and the sponsors: Infusionsoft, Neudesic, and JumpBox, and all the volunteers and presenters at Desert Code Camp today in Phoenix. The turn-out seemed lighter to me than some of the ones in the past, but the sessions I attended were crowded with people sitting on the floor. I started the day off with Simon Allardice giving a great presentation on Silverlight Zero to Hero. High entertainment as usual, Simon... and great information and perspective! Next I was torn between ......

Sitting at Desert Code Camp
Sitting in the computer area of UAT waiting for Simon Allardice to do his session on Silverlight at 10:10 ... Scott Cate hooked me up with a login for EasyDB.com while I was here talking to him, and I already have a database up and running on it....so watch for a post about that in a bit. But you can go to the site and watch intro videos for now. Looking forward to meeting and saying hello to lots of my Phoenix friends today. It's not too late to come down if you're in the area! Stay in the 'Light ......

Watch out for those Unicode files!
It was a little late the other night, trying to stuff my latest Silverlight 2 Article into the database and DTS was giving me absolute fits... I could see there were some extra characters ahead of the column name in the DTS record, but wasn't sure where they came from. I opened the file in SlickEdit, and it wouldn't let me view the file as hex ... hmmm... <pause>Then followed a series of actions that had absolutely nothing to do with what was causing the problem</pause> I finally looked ......

The great app that Michael Scherotter did and I blogged about last night actually had two links associated with it, and I only gave one. He has a second one associated with this that I want to point out: Ticking in Silverlight Clock + Source Code, or take the link to his Home page, look at them in series, and bookmark it!

He provides an IFrame for it, and I just have to show it off here: Go ahead, 'push' some of the buttons on the watch, or the upper left-hand one toggles day/night... very cool.. thanks Michael :) Stay in the 'Light!

Lars Godejord rippling water with SL2.

No, really... this one's for real... you watch the Office 2008 Charity Demo and Microsoft coughs up a buck for the charity...

If you want the rubber off your truck mirror, come scrape it off my truck
This is definitely not remotely technical, so feel free to just nuke it and go on... but it's something I want to get off my chest :) The title just about says it all, but here's the deal... When I go to Costco, Sam's Club, Wal*Mart, *.*Mart, I go in the entrance, and take the very first parking place (farthest from the store) that has at least a couple empty spots around it.

"it is not possible to run two different versions of asp.net in the same IIS process"
Ok, say that 5 times real fast :) The things a person finds themselves involved in while trying to grub through the day and leave enough brain cells functional for Silverlight before crashing out... At my client's facility, we had a server with our web apps and other folks' apps that not only was past it's prime (aren't we all), but the lease was up. Let's not ignore the fact that we had another server with our Oracle database on it go down the same path close enough behind that we switched them ......

SlickEdit - Is there anything in there than VS hasn't got?
SlickEdit - Is there anything in there than VS hasn't got? Last paragraph updated with feature demo info and 15-day trial not 30. This question came across my blog, and I put it aside to think about it a bit because it's a good question. In my opinion, a code editor is one of the more personal things a developer uses. Sure we all have Visual Studio, and in today's version you can do tons of stuff with that thing. And... if you're just starting out, and VS is all you've seen, you probably would wonder ......

SlickEdit 2008 Week 2
SlickEdit 2008 Week 2 Even though there's been no disposition on the macro issue -- and it IS a big issue to code up, I'm sure -- I'm trying to use SE2008 as much as possible to get a feel for it in general. There's differences, and there's goodness, some things you just find accidentally. For instance, just now I was deleting characters using the backspace key, and was getting ready to type something uppercase, and whoa... shift-backspace puts characters back... cool... not sure if V7 did that or ......

Playing "Stump the Band" with SlickEdit
If you never saw Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show, you're obviously much younger than me, and you missed a great TV show. He did a bit with Doc Severinsen where he'd ask audience members to name a song that they didn't think the band would know. Of course, Doc and the band would always play *something*, making up words as they went, and that was the really fun part of the bit. Then they'd turn it over to the audience member to sing their song, which was generally unusual, but not nearly as entertaining ......

Happy Birthday Silverlight Cream May 16, 2007 was the first Silverlight Cream blog post, so it appears like we've made it one year. I posted number 275 yesterday, so that's better than 1 per workday all 52 weeks! I started it as a way to share posts I'd found after MIX '07.

I've been using SlickEdit since (I think) version 1.0 when Brief took a dump in Windows 98 Beta and my boss told me to order two copies of this new editor. So why haven't I upgraded? Well...

Tag-Specific Feeds at GWB (or any SubText Site)
Tim Heuer wrote and asked if there was a feed from my blog *just* for Silverlight. I didn't know you could do it, but Tim showed me I could. So, for those of you that don't want to be bothered by my non-Silverlight blather, you can just switch your feed to this Silverlight-only one. This also means that for any GWB blogger or any SubText site, I would guess, you can get a content-specific feed.

Plateaus From Bartelby.com, a Plateau is "A relatively stable level, period, or state." I learned about Plateaus early because I grew up thinking I was going to play guitar for a living.
