Community Server :: Forums Release
Looks like Rob Howard has release Community Server :: Forums or ASP.NET Forums 2.0. Pretty cool, but I like InstantASP still.

New feature on
Back when was my own personal blogging system :D, I used as my blog's home. Well when I decided to move over to .Text I lost this sub-domain functionally but have always wanted it back. Well now we do. If you are a blogger on, you can now reference your blog with "your-blog-name.geekswithbl... and it will redirect it to " Pretty cool, eh? So now all the old links that pointed to my original RSS ......

Samsung i600 Upgrade
If your like me and frustrated with your Samsung Smartphone because you spend way to much money to have 2002 software loaded and no access to write .NET apps for it (the original purpose of purchasing the phone), then keep your eye on site. They say it will be available (for an extra $15) tomorrow, but they have said this for quite some time and moved it back each week. However, this is the first time I have seen a link so I thought I would share. UPDATE: The download ......

MSDN AA Developer Center
For all you students out there, you now have your own Dev Center on MSDN. Not much content here now, but I would like to know what they are actually planning to do with this since it actually replaces  One bad thing is those of us who had articles published on no longer have those published there.

I got my VISA for Brazil!
Yesterday I got my 90 day VISA for Brazil, now I can head down to the Imagine Cup. Oh wait, IT'S OVER! Struggling with bad service from a passport company I worked with (http://www.americanpasspor... and getting rejected for a tourist visa, I finally got my business VISA, 5 business days after it was promised by the passport company. That was $250 dollars I could have used in some other way (hopefully I will be reimbursed). It's funny, their web site moved the expected ship date everyday to the ......

Will ESS die before it really gets use?
Yesterday, the XML Coverpages pushed a story on EventML. This is the first I have heard of it, but didn't get time to read it when I first saw it, so no worries. Tonight, Kzu pops in and says, “Hey look at this”. After reading the RSS module portion of the draft, it looks a lot like ESS. Because it is so close to the ESS 0.91 specification, I don't think we will get the adoption we need to compete against this one. I still hope to promote ESS, but this looks like the fly swatter that ......
