Tell us where you heard about this event...
Can anyone from Microsoft or anywhere else tell me why, when I register for a MS event, under the drop down box for where you heard about the event, there still is no specific entry for “Saw it in a blog”? I know with Channel 9, weblogs.asp.net, and blogs.msdn.com, MS knows that blogs exist, but every time I have to chose “Saw it on the web” I kinda feel, um I can’t really explain it. I really wish they would just add it and save me countless hours and dollars of therapy ......

New England Fall Foliage + RSS? I'm not too sure on this.
There’s something quaint and charming about Yankee Magazine. It’s about as New England as a magazine can get. Whenever I pick up a copy, I feel like I am taking a trip thru time. With all the colonial era sights and sounds of New England, hayrides, ice fishing events, tall ships converging on an old port town like Mystic or Newport, and everything else old, classic, and New England in general, I can’t believe what I found. On the Yankee Magazine website, they have listings for podcasts, ......

Are you a VB6er? Have I got an event for you!
Last I heard, there were something like 50% of the VB developers out there that were still using VB6 and writing and maintaingn VB6 code. Based on the feedback and uproar of the developer community over the discontinuation of the VB6 support by Microsoft, there are still TONS of folks out there in VB6 land (present company included). Face it there are thousands of companies out there with lots of time and money invested in millions of lines of VB6 code. Can they upgrade it all over night and move ......

Sony Network Walkman - A+
I was looking for a small flash memory based MP3 player for podcasts and a few tunes I wanted to have portable. I never owned a small MP3 player before now. I started with a 20GB Archos, and when that died, I moved to a Creative Zen 40GB, which I am still very happy with, but when you want a few hours worth of podcasts or tunes, the Zen can be a bit big and heavy. I also recently started biking again and the thought of my 40GB Zen somehow falling, crashing to the ground and self destructing was enough ......

Code Camp 4 Developers Gone Wild
Looks like Code Camp 4 (the original one baby!) is coming together well. Thom has the work in progress version of the agenda up on his site. Code Camp 4 will be held on Sept 24th and 25th at the Microsoft office in Waltham, MA. I think we should all petition that the governor of MA officially change Waltham’s tagline to Waltham, MA: home of the original Code Camp and the best developer community in the WORLD! I’ll have a petition ready that weekend for everyone to sign : ) Check out the ......

I love my Backpack!!!
I have to say, I have *NO* affiliation with the folks at Backpack or Basecamp. I *have* been using Backpack for a while and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments. I had on my personal to do list, for some time, a web app that would serve as a catch-all for my ideas, to-dos, files, links, and other misc. debris, bit never was able to find the time to even start planning it. Maybe if I had a place on the web where I could store my ideas and notes on the app, I would have. Enter ......
