Go Sharepoint : Virtual Server 2005 Gotcha...
I am starting down a path with Sharepoint (MOSS 2007), so I found a nice MOSS virtual machine download, its only a 30 day trial, but that'll do for the moment. It's nice that it comes all installed etc, just to get a flavour. The virtual machine is also a domain controller - not sure whether there is any specific reason that relates to a MOSS installation! The image also contains SQL 2005 SP1, Office 2007 Pro, Sharepoint Designer and some other bits...check the above link for more details. Back to ......

Running Google Map pedometer / plotter
If your into running, walking etc you may have come across this site, I think its fantastic. http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/ It enables you to plot your run, walk or whatever and gives you the distance travelled and shows you the elevation of your route. Once your done you can save the url, like this ( http://www.gmap-pedometer.c... ) which was what I did tonight, and keep as bookmarks! Enjoy! Technorati Tags: gmap-pedometer, google maps ......

The end of HD DVD
Toshiba have already announced they will no longer be making HD DVD units and Microsoft have now announced they will no longer me making the HD DVD drive. Guess it was only a matter of time after Warner Brothers decided that Blu-ray was the way for them. Bit of a bugger for those who forked out on a HD DVD unit, but at least we now know the way its going. I have been holding off to see which way it goes. Just wait and hope that MS make a blu-ray drive now :) Technorati Tags: blu-ray, hd dvd ......

live.com Email Address
Maybe I am just being slow here, but I didn't know it was possible to get a live.com email address, I suppose I've never really thought about it and I'm not exactly sure I came by it today, but there you go... Anyway, I thought it was cool, get yourself a live.com email address here UPDATE: The link is now sorted! Technorati Tags: live.com, email address ......

.net 2.0 in VS2008
I attended a user group presentation from Daniel Moth last night on Visual Studio 2008 and .net 3.5. I won't go on about the wonders of .net 3.5 as I'm sure you are well aware of them, but what did take me last night was the backward compatibility of it. I knew that VS2008 supported .net 2.0 and 3.0, but wasn’t aware that I could take advantage of so many new features still using .net 2.0. I would expect javascript intellisense to be supported and CSS, they aren't anything to do with .net, right! ......

ASP.net Wiki and my thoughts...
Reading Scott Hanselman's blog this morning, he stated that MS have released ASP.net Wiki. The idea is basically a "one-stop-shop" for all things asp.net to save people the time of googling and going through the results. First of all I thought that sounded like a good idea, but thinking about it I'm not so convinced and let me tell you why! Looking through the wiki, what I basically see is a carefully selected collection of links to various posts on a particular subject, now of course the wiki is ......
