The Daily WTF. Best. Site. Ever.

No doubt about it The Daily WTF is my new favorite site. I’ve been sending links out to coworkers on a reqular basis for about a week now… this site is just priceless. I laugh out loud every stinkin’ day.

ChubClub 2006: Week 12
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! 273.4 pounds with 23.1 body fat. As I predicted this was a tough week… no excuses but Microsoft does provide ample crap-food to conference attendees. Training Weights: Thursday, Saturday, Monday – typical workout all three nights. Only bummer is that I could have made this a 4–workout week and I didn’t. I got home late from the conference on Wednesday and just slacked. Oops. Cardio: Yeah. STILL need to ......

Probably the best session of the conference and it isn’t even about 2007 Office System! I wish I could bottle his energy – the dude is a ball of fire!

Office DevCon 2006: Day 2, Part 1
First session was useless. Damn. One hour I’ll never get back. The topic was Content Types… but the demos were all about clicking around the SP UI. I can figure that out on my own. I want code… and I want lots of it!! This conference is titled “Microsoft Office System Developers Conference 2006” Maybe a more appropriate titled would be “Microsoft Office System GUI-Clicking-Administrator Conference This post has moved permanently to http://bargelt.com/office-d... ......

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007: Building applications

One message (vibe, transmission, marketing babble?) I’m getting from all of the Microsoft guys is to really think of Office SharePoint Server 2007 (OSS 2007) as a platform for developing applications for your enterprise.

Office DevCon 2006: Day 1, Part 2
I spent the second half of the day in .Net Development on Microsoft SharePoint Technologies . * tracks. Not a lot of in-depth code but Mike Ammerlaan supplied a great overview of WSS development in the Office 2007 world. Here are my notes – not a lot of detail here hopefully that will come in future posts (oh – and I’m sure mistakes are mine not Mike’s): This post has moved permanently to http://bargelt.com/office-d... ......

Office DevCon: Day 1, Part 1
Keynote: Pretty typical keynote session – BillG and Steven Sinofsky talked at a pretty high level – explaining some of the business reasons that we should adopt Office 2007. Yeah – yawn. The most notable announcements were that we will be getting Visual Studio Tools for Office v3 CTP – very cool.

ChubClub: My Workout
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! I thought I’d publish my workout – mostly for my own record – and probably partially to compensate for the fact that I know this week is going to suck. I’m going to be at a Microsoft conference at their Redmond campus and one thing they do really well is feed their guests. They love to push the sugar to keep you awake! ;-) Anyway – back on topic. The following list is what I did on the evening of 3/20/2006 ......

ChubClub 2006: Week 11
Greetings! It was a tough decision but I have moved my blog to bargelt.com. Thanks for visiting! 271 pounds with 23.1% body fat. Recently it really hit me that no matter what I say about not caring about my weight and only caring about my body fat percentage – in the end when I see my weight on the scale and it is higher than my goal I get bummed - even if my BF% is dropping. Over the last few weeks I’ve gained all the weight that I had lost in the previous 8 weeks back. I have been pretty bummed ......

junxion box

The junxion box seems like a nice idea – although it seems a bit expensive at $699. You could always just make your own StompBox for about $400.
