Hey, TAXI!!!
Well, CAB really. Not taxi. We gave up on trying to debug the 3rd party control in C++. It's something deep down in the control, and we ran out of time. It'll keep though, that project is coming back around in a couple of months, and that bug will be reprioritized. Now I'm doing a POC (proof of concept) on the ability of CAB (composite UI application block) to meet our particular needs. So far, it's been a lot of fun, very cool. I had heard from many developers that it is too complicated. I find ......

I'm still living with your ghost...
"I'm still living with your ghost" Santa Monica - Everclear How long has it been since I've had to debug code with MS VC++ 6.0? 5 years, maybe. How long has it been since I've had to debug 3rd a 3rd party grid library? Never, maybe. How hard is it to debug a problem that appears to be a UI focus issue? Pretty hard as the debugger keeps taking focus. At least we have the source code for the library. Dave ......

Office "14" DAC meeting

I'm currently taking part in a meeting in re the Microsoft "14" DAC.  I know there's not much I can say about it, but I can say that I think I'm either in over my head, or that I need more context.  I missed last week's meeting as well as the in-person kick-off meeting event last month, so I know I'm missing an SL (the metric unit of the "sh*t load") of context here.

When I can provide more info, I will, or I will at least try.

Microsoft Office "14" Developer Advisory Council

It's kinda official, I'm a member of the Office "14" DAC.  I would have loved to go to the kick-off meeting, but I couldn't get work to pay for it.  I can't say much more than that (or I'd have to kill you, blah, blah, blah), as I'm under a NDA, DNA, T&A, or whatever.  I will post whatever I can (read as "whatever I see other members are posting without getting in too much trouble"), and I hope that I can attend some of the in-person events in the future.

How do I edit thee? Let me count the ways.

Er, well, uh, so far, just the one way I suppose.

I'm looking into other ways to edit this blog.  I'd like to be able to hook MS Word (2003 or 2007) into the .Text blog system, or even Google docs, but I'm too busy to try it right now.  If anyone has any real cool, techie way to do it, please post.  I'm always up for the new and novel.

Thanx in advance,
