To Blog or Not to Blog
If you look at the history of my blog posts (and why would you) you will notice a trend. When posts were high a vast majority of them was simply passing information along from another site. No more than public bookmarking with a few comments. I used my blog to keep a history of the things I found interesting. And if someone else also found them interesting, great! Now that posts are low, I usually put more thought into each post and try to depart some real information from myself. Posts dropped dramatically ......

On Gary Gygax Passing
Several GWBs have already mentioned the announcement of Gary's passing away. Gary, you changed my life and no matter what the anti Dungeons & Dragons people think, you were a force for good in this world. You will be remembered and missed.

Tivo HD on Woot - $179 today
We love our Tivo HD. It's one of the many DVRs we have owned that actually works. If you don't like your DVR, it's time to upgrade. I ordered another one from Woot today for media sharing. Now I'll need to get some external SATA drives to hook up to them so I can have 4 tuners and 2TB of video storage going. And that doesn't include any of the videos sitting on our laptops or server. Addiction? What addiction? Hurry before they're all gone. Technorati Tags: woot,tivo ......

Source Control in a .NET World
Okay, so "everyone" hates Visual SourceSafe. But the simple truth is many .NET developers have access to it for free because it comes with their MSDN Subscription. So a lot of .NET developers use it and they are familiar with it. Not because it's the best, but just because it's there. When we launched the new company we too went with Visual SourceSafe because it was included in our subscriptions, we were familiar with it, and it was better than nothing. But since then it has failed us in the biggest ......

Rock Band - Offensive Algorithm
Not sure how Rock Band determines what is appropriate for Xbox Live but it denied our band "The Ballmer Dance" but allowed drummer "Rocktard". Technorati Tags: video games,rock band,steve ballmer ......

Choosing a Database for ASP.NET
When we first started the new project there was no question that it would be ASP.NET. It's what I knew and I trusted it to get us there. I wasn't going to risk a startup by playing with Ruby on Rails or PHP when I knew very little about it. I also went directly to SQL Server for the same reasons. But during the first weeks of development we needed to run MySQL to power some software we thought for sure we were going to need to run. That threw a wrench in the plans. Did we really want to run two database ......
