I'm excited to see the recent postings relating to the System.Net.Mail namespace. If the area of managed networking interests you, please see these blogs kept by my peers on the System.Net team: http://blogs.msdn.com/wndp - Windows Network Developer Platform team blog http://blogs.msdn.com/dgorti - System.Net Dev Lead http://blogs.msdn.com/joncole http://blogs.msdn.com/malarch ......

I have recently taken on the role of PM for the System.Net team. Now that Whidbey is winding down, we are starting Orcas (aka the next version of the .Net Framework) planning and want to hear what you think. What needs to be changed/improved/added? Want to put in your 2 cents and describe the scenarios in which you use or would like to use the System.Net ......

MS is about to launch a new web application they call Virtual Earth. It is essentially Microsoft's new and improved mapping solution and it looks like they have really put some hard thought into this product. It looks sweet! But, don't take my word for it - watch a video interviewing the guys that made it. I hope they meet there expected launch time ......

Yesterday, I put the cash I received from my parents as a university graduation gift towards a dining table and chairs for my new apartment. Yes, thats right, a table and chairs. A year ago I would have burnt that cash on some new electronic toy, golf clubs, or in the lamest case put it into my investments. Everyone always wonders when one becomes an ......

I was on a good blogging pace this month until a very nasty flu got ahold of me. Needless to say I have had a lot of couch and movie time over the past week and a half which, when I had the energy, allowed me to do some reading. If you read the title of this post you will know my latest book of choice was “SSL and TLS Essentials - Securing the ......

This is an interesting artcile on why corporate blogging is popular and why it works.

Had some issues when I posted this the first time - user error probably :). Anyways, looks like my buddy Mack is having a rough go of it with Imagine Cup this year as he explains. He is encouraging your feedback ......

Elisa and I went hiking on Mt. Finlayson a week or so ago. The trail is a little more rugged than Elisa was expecting ......

Bonjour, formerly known as Rendezvous, is a networking technology from Apple that is designed to make zero-configuration simple. The Apple website says it “enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks”. In a previous article I dumped on OS X quite a bit and ruffled some peoples feathers :), but I have to ......

A while ago I posted about incompatibility issues with Apple operating systems and how I would not start to look at the system closely from a development standpoint until they provided a signal they are finally getting away from breaking changes in their APIs. Well it looks like I won't get my signal yet as meantioned here and here ; however, the opposite ......

Winsock is the socket-based API on the Windows platform. Winsock (on Windows) provides more functionality than a standard BSD socket interface and also has additional MS only functions above what is defined in the WinSock spec (WinSock is not a strictly MS thing). Maybe in a future post I will talk about how Winsock is really just a layer on top of ......

This is a really nice post summarizing the three tiered architecture.  Check it out.

Lately the buzz around many of my peers has been around Apple's new OS and how they are leaving Windows behind in their dust. Yes, everyone knows I have been in the Windows camp for sometime, but this fact is irrelevant to my following argument - How to be the apparent innovation leader. First, some explanation is in order. By apparent innovation leader, ......

Apparently images of the final design of the next xbox have been leaked. If you want to see the new design check it out here . A write up about the whole deal can be found here ......

Yesterday was my last final exam of the semester. The exam was special because it was the last requirement for my undergrad degree in computer science (w\ software engineering option). It took me about five years to get the degree because I was also in the co-op program which requires one to complete 4 four-month work terms (I did mine with Syncrude ......
