Another VB.NET/C# Comparison
[Crosspost from Managed World] This was just too good to possibly pass up. I was chatting with Chris Williams over messenger about his new endeavor to learn C#. And this is what he had to say: VB.NET is the girl you go out with in high school because you know you'll get some, even though you're really interested in the prettier girl (C#), who may or may not give it up. Then you end up stuck with her... eventually you start to love her, despite her flaws... but you always wonder what it would have ......

Microsoft Gets It Wrong, Again?
UPDATE: If I would have been paying more attention to the feed, I would have seen that Scott Bellware has already posted a much more indepth response to this whole fiasco [Crosspost from Managed World] If there is one thing that bothers me most about good terminology in computer programming, it is that if they are *too* good they become mere marketing buzz words. Key example: refactoring. I hear EVERYONE use this now even when it has nothing to do with what they are talking about. There are developers ......

Ahhh, Sweet Vacation
[Crosspost from Managed World] Well, I get to enjoy a week in a cabin out in the middle of the woods with my wife. This is going to be very relaxing. No internet, no work, no phone, no nothing. Of course, being the techie that I am (and since it is partly *my* vacation also), I can't help but bring some of my guilty pleasures as well (no, I'm not talking about my wife (COME ON! It's a joke! I keed, I keed (I'm sorry honey =P))). So, what pleasures of mine am I taking that would cause all my coworkers ......

[Crosspost from Managed World]

Yikes, I didn't realize just how pathetic I've been lately with my blog. One blog post a MONTH?!? Geez, perhaps I should have gone to a support group or something.

Coming Out of The Funk?
[Crosspost from Managed World] What has probably been obvious to most of you out there is that I have been posting very infrequently lately. Part of it was because of a serious addiction that was caused by someone else. Another part of it was just my funk I get into every once in a while. You see, a couple of times a year I get into a downer where I don't do anything and totally withdraw into my cave as a hermit. Of course, it doesn't help when the cave you withdraw into has a stash like the one ......

VC# Express Annoyance #1 - Debugging A Console Application
[Crosspost from Managed World] Well, after downloading Beta 2 of Visual C# Express Edition 2005, it didn't take long for me to come across my first annoyance. The first thing I did was to create a new Console Application to mess around with the new features of the Console class (which happen to be pretty cool darnit). In .NET 2.0 you can now place text anywhere on the Console, change the background and foreground colors, programatically change the cursor position, etc. Basically, you can now achieve ......

Here I Come INETA
[Crosspost from Managed World] As some of you may have heard, Chris Williams announced that he has been named Chairman of the INETA Marketing Website Committee. Basically, this committee will be in charge of managing the content on the new, redesigned, DotNetNuke-based, up-and-coming INETA website (still under development). Well, to make a long story short, Chris gave me the honor of being one of the members of this committee. I only hope I can live up to the expectations that Chris probably has ......
