Value Types vs. Reference Types
Once more unto the breach explaining the difference between value and reference types. I’ve had this same conversation with others in the past. Nice to see it written up in a simple fashion somewhere. ......

The .NET Books.
Those that know me, know that I read quite a few books, both fiction and work-related. As a result, I’m often asked “What’s a good book for X?” or “Do you have any information on Y?”Well, here it is. The X’s and Y’s of .NET.Basic Essentials (“must have’s”) Title Author Publisher Comments OOP with Microsoft Visual Basic .NET and Microsoft Visual C# .NET Step By Step Robin A.

The Industry is Abuzz over Apple Going to Intel
...and they should be. I’m trying to remember a tech story of similar magnitude in its implications, and I can’t think of any. Scoble wants to know how people feel about it. To borrow from Douglas Adams, this “is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is.”. Scoble has some questions, of which only one is significant to me (#5), and only because it peripherally touches on my biggest question. And I don’t mean that the answers ......

Government and the "Free" Press
Once again I feel compelled to delve into a “political” issue. This issue is potentially the most important of our time. It has potential to be bigger than Iraq, bigger than terrorism, bigger than the price of oil, global warming, judicial appointments, you name it. Recent events have definitely brought it to light, but it was the admission from Mark Felt that he was “Deep Throat” that really got me thinking on this topic. As an aside, I’m definitely going to have to ......

The 89th Indianapolis 500 Mile Race
It’s old news to be posting about this now, but since I posted so much about practice and time trials, I feel I should say something about the race.Kudos to Andretti-Green and Dan Wheldon. I wondered at the time why Wheldon accepted his sub-par qualifying run and didn’t go out again, and I still wonder about it. But he showed once again that he’s Superman where the IRL is concerned and won his fourth race (out of five!) this year.Kudos also to the female rookie Danica Patrick. She ......

Enterprise Library vs. .NET 2.0
Tom Hollander has written a long article on why getting the EL ready for .NET 2.0 is turning out to be a pain. As a strong supporter of what the patterns & practices group is doing, I’ve been reluctant to weigh in on this topic. However, as time goes by, I feel more and more compelled to say something. It’s my opinion (and my opinion only) that the EL is taking the wrong direction. It’s this direction that is causing the significant and unnecessary delays. There were quite a few ......
