Vista Aero for $14.99
Yesterday I had part of the afternoon off and was running some errands. One of the stops was Fry’s Electronics in North Phoenix. They’ve started having big bins of the stuff they’re pushing out in the corridor like laptop fan trays for $10 or 1G USB drives, etc. I saw they had 4G SD cards for $14.99, and thought I’d buy one just to slap into this laptop for ‘whatever’. Truly an impulse buy … and what better place to do so than a Geek heaven?? :) Sometime last night, I put the card in and it asked ......

This is very goofy, but Jeff at GWB debugged around enough to figure out that the following entry is what was killing my 'Cream post for the last two days :( I'm going to try to put this out as a single and see if it flies.

Silverlight Cream stymied -- just hang on!
Not sure what's going on, and the folks at GWB are looking at it with me, but I can't post. And it's not this facility although I'd be more than happy to bitch complain about it. I had the latest 'Cream ready last night and wasn't able to send from either machine, and not this morning, and not now. I don't know if this will go through either. I started having really bad feelings about my location when I tried to go to Karen Corby's site this morning and it failed. I thought maybe they were blocking ......

If you're not familiar with WhatTheTech.com, read on... My granddaughter was at the house over the weekend, and came to get me because of a message on my wife's computer. Turns out she got a popup from one of those freakin' places that say "Your computer is infected". She hit "No", but turns out the entire page was a picture with a link to install the stuff.

DevTeach / SQLTeach Vancouver (June 8-12,2009)
I've not been to the Vancouver event, but I did attend and speak at the Montreal event in December, and I have to say I liked it! The venue and gang was smaller, so sessions were smaller and more shall I say intimate? It fostered more of a conversational-style than presentations you'll find at MIX. The speaker list isn't up yet, but they plan on 136 sessions and if you look at the list of speakers that talked in Montreal, you'll get an idea. 17 are Silverlight!
