This past week I blogged a problem I was having with a friend's Sony Vaio Vista laptop and wireless randomly dropping. After some digging on the Sony site, I came up with this: http://www.iq.sony.com/srvs... Details from the Sony KB article Knowledge Article C568483 The wireless network connection intermittently fails to connect. ......

You can check it out at http://code.msdn.microsoft.... thanks to Somasegar's WebLog : The MSDN Code Gallery is a portal for snippets, samples and other resources. In it you can find pages that describe samples and supporting documents including screenshots and ......

While checking different tools lists of people I admire, (Hanselman's is still the best) I came across a great little exe called Query Express. It's a single EXE, no install no mess. It's written in .net and you can get the exe or the .net project to compile yourself if you are paranoid. It also sounds like you can take the project and roll it into ......

Talking to someone at our user group this evening, I got the bad news that the Acropolis project will see no more CTP releases. It seems that the project is now in the hands of the Patterns & Practices group. From the Acropolis website : "We are very excited to be entering the next phase of the project where we will begin to roll many of the Acropolis ......

Well I've seen these about thirty times now, tried them once or twice, but now that I am doing a little more work with my side company, I've found this great tool for becoming a bit more mobile. Check out the suite here. You can run Open Office from a USB drive. Never be without the ability to open word, excel, access or powerpoint files again. I recommend ......

Bravo Dave, Bravo!

Way to go man, 'bout time!


Anyone having problems where they get an intermittent connection to a Wireless AP using a Sony Vaio laptop running Vista? The only thing that seems odd to me is that you have to set the Wireless AP settings in both Windows Network & Sharing and also in the Vaio Communications center. I have a friend who can connect fine, but every so often, only ......

Well, Chris Bowen has posted it on his blog, so we are official; Code Camp 9 Will be April 5th and 6th in Waltham. Hard to believe it has been 9 already. He is also looking for a subtitle to number 9. Also if you have a little artistic talent, maybe you can help him design a new logo for us? Head over to his blog for all the info. Also Registration ......

Get Ready New England Geeks! March 31 - April 1 2007 Via Chris Bowen's Blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/cbowe... Hmmm, something's *really* fishy about Code Camp happening on April Fool's Day, I'm very very afraid... Give a yell if you're going, I'm definitely going, most likely speaking. Any ideas for ......

Ok I tried to love the new wonderful, highly acclaimed SQL Prompt, but can’t. It says it works with VS2005 and, although I no longer take the short yellow bus to work, I feel like I should. I cannot get it to work in the IDE. I checked all my settings, emailed friends, etc and… nothing! The conflict between SQL Prompt’s ‘hot keys’ and the ones I know ......

Ok, I now know I am not the only one still writing VB6 code. I think the number I keep hearing is something link 50%? Well I am one of that whatever percentage. We have some apps that will never need enough maintenance / upgrades / enhancements to warrant a migration, but we work on a lot. The VB2005 upgrade wizard took *all* weekend when we analyzed ......

I think I am still stuck in my analog world for task management. I love my moleskine and 3x5 cards from Levenger I needed to find a way to get my personal, fulltime job, side jobs, household and speaking tasks in order. I couldn’t find one I really loved, GTD was probably the closest, but I wasn’t in love with it. Enter Bill Westerman and his wonderfully ......

Ok, despite what the timestamp might say, it’s midnight here in CT. A late end to a long day. It started around 530 AM when I got in my car and headed to Iselin New Jersey. Many hours and many miles later, I do declare the day to be another success for Don, Scott and Peter, as well as all who attended and presented. I did 2 talks VB2005 for VB6ers and ......

Last night, while browsing lifehacker.com, I found a link to a great site, http://www.flashcardexchang... They have virtual flash card decks for anything you could ever want from science, to high school subjects to music to computers. I checked out the cards tagged 'Microsoft' and found some great ones for Microsoft Certified Developer exams. There ......

Ok, here’s the scene, I’m sitting in the audience at the CTDOTNET user group meeting, stuffing my face with pizza and picking my nose when I hear SB (user group leader guy) say something that resembles my name. <munch><munch>&... There it is again, sounded like my name, something about Web ......
