The crazed ramblings of Eric King

  • Kudos to Kirk!

     I received an invitation from my buddy Kirk Evans a couple of weeks ago to attend a DevDays event in Atlanta. The event was great! I had an awesome time and learned quite a bit. Kudos to Kirk for throwing a killer event and for throwing an invite my way. While I was there I was able to chat some with Mark Dunn and Mark Berry. Those are 2 sharp guys and I look forward to talking to them again soon. Hopefully we'll be able to work something out for some custom BTS training from them later this year.

  • Drinking from the Firehose

    It's been a whirlwind month after joining the Application Services team here at work.  After being shipped out to class during my first week, I've been trying to learn as much as I can about Biztalk. It really has been like drinking from the firehose.

    I needed a change of pace here at work, so I recently applied for, and accepted a position on a different team. My official new job title is "BizTalk Developer / Consultant".

  • Back in Business

    I am sure that no one will see this, but I managed to get a password reset and can now blog once again. Now I'll have to come up with some juicy content to share with the world.

    Sorry for this useless post. I'll go work on it now.

  • What a deal!

    A buddy at work sent me this link. I've had one of these Media Players for several months now, and I absolutely love it! It's the Creative Zen Portable Media Center. Until 11/7 you can buy it at for $199 after a rebate.

  • Fighting for PDC Content

    Once I discovered yesterday that the PDC'05 presentations were available for available for download, I started grabbing sessions that were of interest to me. THEN it happened. The word started spreading, fast. I managed to download about 7 or 8 presentations before the bandwidth became so bad, that I was getting timeouts. The one I'm currently downloading still has about 3 hours to go. (if I'm lucky) 

  • What about

    Anyone have any experience with hosting at I've been looking at moving my web site there, and thought I would poll the public for any input.
