Geeks With Blogs
If you can't riddle them with questions... ...riddle them with bullets. July 2008 Entries
I noticed today that Microsoft is about to release a new preview release of the ASP.NET MVC framework, so I thought I'd say something about that today. For those who haven't really used an MVC framework before, in short, its a flexible architecture that allows you to structure your code in such way as to keep clearly defined layers: a model (database access), a controller (business logic) and a view (a way to view the results of the execution of said logic).

Hello hello
This is my new blog; welcome. A ton of people have them, but until today, I didn't. That's because I never really saw the need. Now I suppose that I'm starting to. I have a ton of stuff I need to remember, and I need a convenient place to archive all of it, as well as interact with other individuals who know a good deal more than I do.
