Open Letter to (and deal for) Silverlight Bloggers
While doing that 900th Silverlight Cream post last night, I found some dead links in the database. With close to 6,000 links, there is absolutely no way I can test them all and make sure they are (still) correct. Two of the cases I know are because of blog reorganizations where the bloggers did not preserve the previous links. I know it’s not easy to do that. Early on I made some changes at, but I kept both sets alive in my URL-Rewriting file. Since I was already rewriting my URLs, it ......

Resolved the Dell ‘Wandering Mouse’
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 running Vista that I think from the beginning had the Wandering Mouse problem that various people on the interweb have complained about. A few notes before I say what my solution was: I do NOT have that stupid little goober between the G and H key I do NOT rest my hand/finger/or part thereof on the touchpad The touchpad is a small contained area, no large touch areas In the original setup, I had no control over the touchpad either, which sort of surprised me. My solution? ......

Silverlight Cream for July 10, 2010 -- #900
For Issue 900, I wanted to do another "best of" and it's a little tricky. I can't do best of from 800 to 900 because it will be heavily weighted to the early posts. So what I did was best of for 2010 so far. I also did best of 2009 to put that one to bed. In the lists, Number 01 is the top hit, and they go on from there. Just a note to bloggers... if you reorganize your blog, don't break your links! ... there are a couple on these two lists that I had to go find, and that means that other links on ......
