Just finished SignalR: Real-time Application Development from Packt Publishing. It’s a really great read for those wanting a holistic view of SignalR as a true application building block. In many respects I think that SignalR could end up being a game changer for entirely new classes of both apps and frameworks. I’d love to see the puppy plugged into ......

I’ve been a big Corsair fan for a long time. I’ve always had great luck with their RAM and other products. A couple of months ago, I was in the market for a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Red switches. I was delighted to find that Corsair was selling their K90 keyboard at Fry’s Electronics with those exact switches, so I picked it up. Then, I started ......

Ken Tabor’s blog post “They Are not Resources – We Are People” struck a chord with me. I distinctly remember hearing the term “resources” within the context of “people” for the first time back in the late 90’s. I was in a meeting at Compaq and a manager had been faced with some new scope for an IT project he was managing. His response was that he needed ......

While he was a bit disconnected at times with what was really going on out in the trenches, I always thought he was true believer in what we in Developer Platform and Evangelism (DPE) were doing. He got it. He had started DPE and kicked a lot of doors ......

This post is certainly on the more nuanced side of all the goodness that is Windows 8, but it’s about something that’s really changed my PC usage experience for the better.

DNS is a big deal. Even small incremental changes to improve its performance can yield significant value due to the vast quantity of look-ups required when using the internet. Until now, It’s always been one of those things I had to kinda take on faith… was my ISP doing a good job? Are those public DNS server really that much faster? What about security ......

Ok, here’s my scenario: Windows Home Server with a little over 3TB of storage. This includes many years of our home network’s PC backups, music, videos, etcetera. I’d like to get a backup off-site, and the existing APIs and apps such as CloudBerry Labs WHS Backup service are making it easy. Now, all it’s down to is vendor and the cost of the actual ......

One tries to be a responsible citizen and report malicious behavior to the “appropriate authorities.” Of course, in the end, it’s really about filling out forms and being told to go fuck yourself. After filling out their forms, they said: The Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) strives to keep you informed about the status of your submission. ......

YouTube Downloader has been tested for malware by the CNET Download.com team and meets our security requirements.” I guess ......

I’ve been a bookworm for years and have amassed a significant volume of books of all kinds. Most of my collection is technology related, but volumes of Conan, manga, astronomy, philosophy, genetics, personal productivity, science fiction, fantasy, and just about everything else abound. After getting my Kindle Christmas before last, and later, my iPad, ......
