I'm starting to look into getting my MCAD this year, but don't really know which programs are the best. For starters, I am still torn between doing like a week long seminar and doing it at home at my own pace. The seminars cost more and would require more time off work, however it is gets it all taken care of. While the study-at-home programs code less and I could do them in my free time, they also take a lot longer. I have looked around some and there are dozens of different training courses and at-home study guide, and all of them say they are the best.
So if you have any recommendations for training programs that offer courses in or around Sacramento, CA or the Bay Area, please let me know. Also, if you know of any good at-home study programs, then please let me know about those as well.
Finally, anyone know when the programs will be updated for .NET 2.0? I have heard “early 2006,” but that is kind of general. I will probably wait and take the certification for 2.0, since it would be more relevant moving ahead.
Windows Media Center seems to get a little confused about what it has scheduled to be recorded sometimes. Take for instance this little snapshot from tonight. Not at the top that it is setup to record every time "Law & Order" is on, yet over the next couple of days, it lists "Late Night with Conan O'Brien". MCE has done this in the past too, and I have to cancel the series for Law & Order, then set it up again, but inevitably, it does it again. It has done this with other shows too. Like mistakenly recording "Starting Over" when I have it setup to record "Stargate SG-1".
Anyone else experienced this? Any sort of solution? This and a couple other nuances about MCE are starting to get to me and I'd like to get them resolved so I can get back to happy TV viewing.
