Scott Barnes on Submitting SL Bugs, Shawn Wildermuth on SL Firestarter in NYC, Jason Cooke Templatinging the Calendar, Jonas Follesø on SL2 apps using WCF, and Mike Snow on detecting alt-shitshift-control-windows and apple keys, delcaring a User Control from a XAML Page, and Creating Smooth Tile Transitions.

Don't forget about the Silverlight Write and Win Contest at SilverlightShow. Ivan reported to me this morning that one of the articles in my SC posts from yesterday was entered in the contest ... go check out the prizes they've got going... no seriously... there.are.great.prizes... :)

Jeff Prosise blogs that all roads lead to Silverlight 2 ... he has updated his very cool magnifying glass app to SL2... go check it out prior to the MSDN article!

Going along with updates, Lester has updated XAMLPadX 4.0... check it out!

Cameron Albert is hard at work on his game, Parenthia, which I suspect is going to be stellar, he has a nice article about Scripting for Games on his site now.
