September 2004 - Posts
Turns out I'll be up in Redmond in a couple weeks for an event (I'm not sure I can say why though). If anyone else out there will be at MS on October 5,6,7 drop me a line, we'll meet for beers.

Rob just left a comment asking "what was the driving motive behind my last post". To be honest, that thought just ran through my head as I was reading the linked post on WTF, so figured I would post it.
I'm not really trying to start a language war or anything, but bad VB code does seem to be pervasive (though I will say most of that bad code is from the VB 6 era, unless is ported code to VB.NET, or people are relying heavily on the Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace).
As unpopular as the question is (or as much as it looks like a slashdot question), I think it's a legitimate one to ask.
Ever notice how much VB code makes it on the The Daily WTF.... Hmmmm..
Thats all I'm going to say... ;)
If you are and you'd like to hook up to talk programming with another technology wonk fire me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ok, I do see a problem... you have to read the posts from the bottom up (sort of like a really log email thread)....
Ok MS... This just sucks!!!!
...I've decided to make all my posts ~25 words or less so readers don't have to futz around with those annoying read more links!
Of course, with my low volume posting of late, I'm not costing MS anything... ;)
It appears that MS has turned off full-feeds for weblogs.asp.net's rss retrieval. Ok, so until I can move my blog over to my own personal server (I've debated this for a while, but I was like the 10th blog here and I like living here)
To be continued...
Ok, so I try to steer clear of web development as much as possible, but Trenton Moss has published a great set of tips for working with CSS. You can find it here (http://www.evolt.org/article/Ten_CSS_tricks_you_may_not_know/17/60369/)
