Well I have been using WVPC for Windows 7 RTM for about a week now and there are a few things I like and a few things I don’t. First off, why at the end of 2009 do we still not have a “multiple monitor” story that doesn’t require me to put quotations around the words. This RDP style of one giant monitor span across your two monitors is not a solution, it hasn’t been since it came out. Secondly, What *flicker* is *flicker* up *flicker* with *flicker* all *flicker* the *flicker* flickering? I have ......

 

John and I are finalizing the requirements for the next version of the Developer Book Club site and starting to layout the base using Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2. Thus far, I love the experience. The tools suite is amazing and ObjectDataSource is going to change the way we create UIs and business logic. In my demos for Visual Studio DevCon, I extended the base to support a custom object library to bind to the UI instead of DataSets. The IDE makes it so much easier and definitely better APIs for creating ......

 

What's New in ASP.NET? How can I Leverage Data in ASP.NET 2.0? These are the questions I will be answering in St. Louis on Thursday. I have finish configuring the presentation and demos and am excited about the content. This event should be outstanding and I am speaking with some top notch speakers. John Alexander and I will be driving out in the morning and spending the evening hanging with friends so if you are around, send me an email and hook up for an geek dinner or just for fun. ......

 

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 Techedbloggers.net 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. If you are going to TechEd 2005 Orlando this year, but haven’t registered your blog on the site yet, please do here. ......

 

We I first received this book, I was not sure what to expect. When it comes to development topics on debugging the spectrum is very wide. Most developers, including myself, only use basic techniques for day-to-day debugging. These get us through our problems quickly and they work well for 80% of the bugs we encounter. We forgot to close a connection, we didn't set a variable, we forgot to exit a loop, we fat fingered a variable name. All of these are daily errors we as developers face and fix with ......

 

I have been converting my current client’s development environment to a VPC instead of taking over my main machine as we did to get the project kicked off. I decided to go with Windows Virtual PC now that it has RTMed, but quite a bit has changed. Once I had Windows 7 installed and VS 2008 configured, I started looking for a multiple monitor solution for VPCs. In the past, I had just lived with the limitation of running virtual and not getting the benefit of dual monitors. This time I wanted something ......

 

A few days ago Microsoft released an update to one of my favorite PowerToys, SyncToy. This is a must have if you are a portable user and you want to get a quick backup of your files (photos, videos, source code, etc) by folder for free. SyncToy 2.1 I have been using this for a few versions now and it is great at syncing or backing up folder to folder onto USB flash or hard drives. The scenarios I use it in are: Backup of photos pre and post processing from my D300 and D700. Backup of source code ......

 

Check it out!  Drew and Kevin have done it again.  Thanks guys!

 

Last night, John Bristowe and I started discussing ESF and his Newsgator extension to support the spec. It is very cool. With Newgator 2.0, you can build your own extensions to support other frameworks and do whatever you want inside Outlook. He is wanting to make an ESF feed create Calendar events. His first try was very cool. If you don't know what ESF is, check it out here and please give us feedback. INETA is planning to be one of the first users of the format and Bristowe will be changing the ......

 

What a great event! I want to thank everyone involved and wish all the charities good luck with their new software. If you haven't listened to the shows yet, I highly suggest it. You will be compelled to look at your work with the community and see different ways you can help charities with your development skills. Here is a list of all the shows we recorded during the event, please help spread the word about these so others can get involved in their local areas either by themselves, as a user group, ......
