Thanks Stacy...

That would have been a very early December posting, and not many SC posts for the year either... thanks for being the first to point that out.

It had to happen ... took me until the 6th to mess up the month or year... :)

Hi Dave,

Thank you for Silverlight cream.
We constantly visit the site to get the latest news on Silverlight.
On your post you said you couldn't see the mashooo website.
Were you having internet problems? did you use some kind of custom browser?
I am asking because we want to make sure there is no problem with the site.
