Review: Microsoft Surface RT
Being the ever cautious fan of technology, I ordered a Surface RT within minutes of it going live on Microsoft’s store. I received it Friday, and spent the weekend with it, and wrote a review. I posted that review on my personal blog. TL;DR: It’s a pretty...
Worst exception message ever
I'd like to nominate the Entity Framework team for writing the absolute worse exception message ever. "System.Data.Entity.Edm.EdmAssociationEnd: : Multiplicity is not valid in Role 'User_Profile_Source' in relationship 'User_Profile'. Because the Dependent...
Microsoft uses open source? OMG, LOL and what not
Sometimes I read something in the "tech press" about Microsoft and get endlessly annoyed. I may have decided to leave the company, but quite honestly it's a lot like the feeling you get when you graduate from college. For better or worse, it'll always...
My departure from Microsoft
Whoa, I just realized that I never really announced here that I've decided to leave Microsoft. Actually, left, is more like it, since I'm currently on vacation. Nothing really exciting or controversial about it, just a list of reasons why it makes sense...
New job at Microsoft (and see you at Mix!)
After almost a year and a half, I'm leaving my dev position in Server and Tools Online to be a program manager in the SQL Azure BI organization. My motivation for the change probably doesn't matter much to people reading this blog, but I will say that...
Installing Visual Studio 2010 SP1 or Windows Phone tools in your VM (danger!)
If you've read my blog for any amount of time, you probably know that I tend to develop stuff in a Parallels VM on a Mac. It's how I roll. I like VM's because I can trash them and do really stupid things with beta software. That said, there is a pain...
Windows Phone 7 review
I finally got around to composing some thoughts on what I think about Windows Phone 7, and I posted those impressions on my personal blog . I'll save a few bytes and not repost it here. It should be obvious that my general impression is overwhelmingly...
Windows Phone 7 with your Mac
Yes, I might report to the Death Star every morning and Darth Ballmer (and I like it, too), but it's true that I still have plenty o' Macs around the house. I'm just not able to be religious one way or another, even for the company I work for. But you...
Preview updated for POP Forums v9 for ASP.NET MVC3 Beta 1 posted to CodePlex
Just a quick note to let folks know that I updated the October preview for the forum app to use the new dependency injection hotness found in beta 1 of the next ASP.NET MVC framework. Get those bits here. Brad Wilson has a great post on what that new...
Microsoft is...
It sounds like something to write in a one year anniversary post, but I have to say that I get slightly annoyed at what people say Microsoft is. It's the typical news story and blog comment noise, and I probably shouldn't care, but it still annoys me...
