It turns out that one of the many benefits of having the last name of "Key" is that this blog is a search result for people looking for keys to Windows. After reviewing the referrers to some of the blog entries, 1/4-1/2 of the referrers are different flavors of Google with a query string containing "Windows" and "key".
Very naughty, people!
(It could be worse -- my last name could be Spears or Aguilera....)
Chris Anderson talks about a spontaneous hardcore coding session w/Mr. Box, with the usual amount of secrecy and suspense we've come to expect the past few days.

Great paper describing features that we'll be seeing in C# in the Yukon timeframe. This is definitely the most complete document I've seen yet. Fun stuff!

Smart guy Don Box says so and I'm willing to believe him.
Wow, WinXP Tablet PCs are really flying off the shelves.

A new beta of everyone's favorite free time tracker is available. (I'm not affiliated w/them in any way, just love the program.)
I added some links to some of my old emails that people may find useful ("Old stuff" section). I have some items I've sent to my mailing list over the past year that I should put here on the blog, but i'm not sure if I should post them as blog entries, "stories", or links to my web site.... Time will tell, I guess.
I picked up Samsung ML-1430 a few days ago for a paltry $150 after rebates. This thing is a 8M 15 ppm laser printer, folks! I'd been using an HP LaserJet 5L for years and had gotten to the point where I was only printing envelopes and things I couldn't wait to print at the office. Years ago paper started jamming and recently almost nothing prints because it only has 1M of memory, which apparently isn't enough to print a simple web page with a single graphic. (Yes, I'm serious.)
I saw the Samsung @ Best Buy and thought I might as well give it a shot. Wow -- very, very impressive. I'm printing everything now. I hadn't realized that I'd _stopped_ printing things at home, but that surely was the case. Some things feel a little "cheap", but I would expect nothing more from something so affordable. The fact that it can quickly print my documents (up to 16 pages per side, mind you) makes me a happy guy. If the thing dies in a few months I'll probably buy another.
