Two Years of Blogging
I just realized than Monday started year 3 of me blogging at GeeksWithBlogs, and kudos to Jeff and everyone at GWB for great service! What began as an experiment in blogging on my own site expanded into something with a LOT more reach at GWB just in time for WPF/E in December of '06. Then after Mix '07, I began what is now the SilverlightCream posts, and anything else I may have to say is drowned out by that! I've been watching the blogger list at GWB, and although I began later than some, I'm now ......

Sorry for the spam feedback comments
I've left comments open on this blog so that people could respond easily. Unfortunately as some of you have probably found out, someone with a room-temperature IQ has been making spam comments of a very rude nature to many of my posts, and they've probably been forwarded to other posters as well. I've added Captcha to the comments, and if it turns out to be a live person and he persists past that, then I will moderate... as it turns out, while I was typing this, another came through, so I'm going ......

Fixing Failed Windows Updates
Yes, I know this isn't Silverlight, but it's close! I had given up for a bit trying to get the latest Silverlight installed on this machine. I thought maybe it was all the beta bits giving me a fit or who knows what. Essentially I gave up, and just worked off my laptop, but I need to spend some concentrated time working on some things over the next few weeks and I'm just more comfortable doing that on the workstation. So today, instead of being productive, I finally figured out what was going on. ......

Phoenix Silverlight User Group Meeting Review
I'd be lying if I said I was happy with last night's turn-out to hear Tim Heuer speak, but on the up-side, not one person left with any questions un-asked or un-answered!
