Rob Howard on .NET Rocks!
This week on .NET Rocks! we finally get to speak with Rob Howard- star of stage, screen, and ASP.NET! Great stories and insight from this true .NET innovator, developer, speaker, and author. http://dotnetrocks.com/default.aspx?showID=120 Mondays: The Rambo Show
This week's Mondays may contain the funniest of Mark Miller's rants ever. Check it out. http://mondays.pwop.com

Mondays will commence at 10PM Eastern
To participate, go to http://www.franklins.net/calldotnetrocks
This was in the speaker's lounge. Mark Miller was just hanging out even though he wasn't a speaker, and Nick was trying to get some work done. Mark was snapping his gum really loud and banging on his keyboard. Michele was freaking out over some code that she was trying to fix, and if I remember correctly Mark was talking her ear off and she just wanted him to shut up so she could fix her code. :-)

I'm just outside Middletown, CT en route to Montreal where I am teaching a 1/2 day pre-con tomorrow morning. Had to stick around to record DNR and I've just stopped to get gas and coffee.
Radio in my 92 Saab 900t is broken (antenna broke off) but I have my PocketPC phone.
I'm listening to archives of Whaddya Know streamec over CDMA as I drive. I'm posting this with PocketBlogger on my phone.
Very cool, mobility.
I'lll blog if anything interesting happens
I don't usually post these types of things to my blog, but I think some of my blog readers may appreciate it.
I noticed that nobody was signing up for my ASP.NET Master Classes for the last 3 months or so, and next month was no exception. I attribute this to the fact that there is so much ASP.NET 2.0 hype relative to VB.NET 2.0 hype. Also, people adopt server technology faster than client technology.
So I'm instead teaching a VB.NET Master Class (which has been well-attended all along) from July 11-15 and I'm extending a deal to people who read my blog, MSDN Event attendees, and INETA user group members. For you, I'm doing a 2-for-1 special. Go ahead and sign up normally, but then contact us
and tell us you want to take advantage of the July 2-for-1 deal.
The class is normally $2300, but I'm extending this 2-for-1 deal because of the short notice.
Details on this 5-day hands-on class are at http://franklins.net/vb_net_training.aspx
The Southeastern Connecticut coast is beautiful this time of year, and the food is great!
I should also tell you that every attendee gets a DVD with camtasia movies that I record during the class.
Mondays is being recorded live tonight at 10pm Eastern.
DNR tomorrow night at 6pm Eastern
