Let me know if you guys have any problems using this.  I hope it helps out.


Lately has been getting more comment spam than normal.  If you go to “Advanced Options” on the posts that are getting a lot of spam and uncheck Allow Comments, this will solve some of the problem.  Lately, spam has been come through trackbacks so I am fighting it on the data end to help lighten the load.  Please be patient with us and keep your ear to the ground for something new coming later this summer.


With both Drew and Kevin getting situated with their new roles at Microsoft, InDepth Technology asked John Alexander and I to become the new managers of the site.  We are both extremely excited to be offered this opportunity and thank Drew and Kevin for their hard work to make this community possible.

My wife is walking in the March of Dimes WalkAmerica this year to bring support to premature babies.  The research conducted with our support is very important because the statistics are astonishing as you will see below.  If you would like to help sponsor my wife during her walk, click this link and add your support.  


Did you know that premature birth is the leading cause of new born death in the first month of life? It affects 1,305 babies a day in the United States. Those who survive may have lifelong health problems. And premature births are on the rise -- up to 27% since 1981.


That is why I am asking you to support us in March of Dimes WalkAmerica, because premature birth can happen to any pregnant woman. In nearly half the cases, the causes are unknown. The March of Dimes is leading the way to find answers by supporting research into the causes of premature birth. I am joining the fight, and so can you.

Your support helps fund:

  • Research into stress and other factors that may trigger preterm labor.
  • Programs to educate pregnant women to recognize the warning signs of preterm labor.
  • Tools to help health care providers find better ways to detect women who may be at risk for preterm labor.


The Visual Studio 2005 Developer Conference by Microsoft is coming to Kansas City and St. Louis in late May/early June and I will be presenting two sessions at each.  The sessions are Leveraging Data in ASP.NET 2.0 and What’s New in ASP.NET 2.0.  The events should be lots of fun and they have some great speakers in each city.  If you are new to .NET or have been a seasoned veteran, this event is right for you.  Registration is low (Only $99) and you will also walk away with the precious beta discs and a couple good books.

My Events:

St. Louis, MO (Marriot West) – 5/26/2005

Kansas City, MO (Sherriton Hotel of Overland Park) – 6/1/2005

My Sessions:

Session 1 - What’s New in ASP.NET 2.0

ASP.NET 1.1 has a great feature set, but wait until you see ASP.NET 2.0! In this session, we will take a quick lap around the new feature set. ASP.NET 2.0 is packed – so much to see, so little time. We will also introduce the solution that we will be building during the rest of the sessions. Take a look at the cool new stuff in ASP.NET 2.0 that will let you build great web sites faster!

Session 3 - Leveraging Data in ASP.NET 2.0

Let’s face it … all great web sites need data. ASP.NET 2.0 builds on and extends the great data access capabilities of ASP.NET 1.1 with a host of new controls and data binding options. In this session, we will explore the new controls and binding features to bind to both data and objects. We will also leverage the new caching architecture in ASP.NET 2.0, particularly the new and improved cache validation capabilities. Take a look at the cool new data access features in ASP.NET 2.0 that will let you build great web sites faster!
