Dropping off the radar for a while...
As some of you may know having seen me @ Code Camps, or other events in the past 6 months or so know, my life's been pretty hectic. Starting back in February and continuing up to this very night, my son has been in and out of the hospital so many times it's sickening to think that I know so much about the inner workings of a place nobody should have to visit that often. He was last discharged Tuesday, and then at 3:30 this morning (Monday) he was re-admitted. Each time they get a little closer to ......

GC.NUG Meeting June 12, 2008
A bit of a late announcement - I'm just returning to a schedule after my son was released from the hospital last night.

In this session, we'll move past the basic examples that occupy most introductions to Linq and examine the new .Net 3.5 functional ......

30 Days of .NET (Windows Mobile) Revisited
After talking with Chris (Craft) about his project for the next 30 days, I asked if he would mind whether or not I took his C# code and converted it to VB.NET to post on my VB Mobile blog and he liked the idea. With that said look forward to having some updated code samples as quickly as I can convert them. See Chris' blog for the latest installments he's released ......

Old School games and Server Quest
The other day I blogged about Server Quest which is a little game Microsoft has put out to shine a spotlight on the I.T. Pro. Having played it for a bit tonight I have to say it's a crazy mix of old school graphical gaming, think something along the lines of an I.T. Themed "Maniac Mansion" for those who may remember that one :) Anyways it's full of some subtle references to gaming from the old days, and it's a neat way to pass some time. If you never played any of those old games, you may not like ......
