Goodenow says goodbye...
Well after the NHLPA and the NHL have finally resolved their differences, Bob Goodenow has resigned. Goodenow was the head of the players association. If it wasn;t for his blinders and for his arrogance, thier probably would have been hockey last year. I have the pleasure of knowing a couple of NHL players and for the most part, everyone was willing to except the cap long ago. Bob decided that he knew best and kept pushing back. It's a shame that it took so long for the NHLPA to see that this guy ......

Composite UI Application Block (CAB)
I was able to attend the CAB training session at Redmond earlier this week. It was a very informative couple of days. We were able to meet and talk with the dev team of CAB. We went through a series of Hands On Labs that will be available soon. I am still trying to get my head around the how CAB works at a detail level.

Internet Explorer 7
I have been a FireFox user for well over a year now. The number one reason is that I can get the tab functionality to work the way that I want it to work (with the addition of a couple of addins).

Remove the standard button bar on one tabe, it is still available in other tabs. I understand that this may be nice in some situations, but I would at least like to be able to turn ......

Hiring practices
There has been a couple fo posts recently regarding the hiring practices of companies. I have had a couple of interesting experiences with this recently. These experiences I would classify as how *not* to hire someone. First one happend about 4 or 5 months ago. I submitted a resume to consulting firm. The company is fairly well know in the .NET development circles as is the owner. I received a call from one of the developers in the company and we chatted for about 5 or 10 minutes. Very informal, ......

Last chapter is done
I sent the final edits in for Professional C# 2005 yesterday. Writing a book is (even just the 8 chapters that I did for this one) is a lot of work. So many late nights, frustrations in getting pre-pre-pre-beta software to work, redoing chapters when the pre-beta software is released etc etc etc. I probably will be taking a little time off from writing. Time to enjoy coaching my son's hockey team ......
