Apple as usual always surprised everybody by their design. Very nice :-)
iMac 17" - 256 Mo G5 à 1,6 GHz - Combo - GeForce FX5200 Ultra 64
iMac 17" - 256 Mo G5 à 1,8 GHz - SuperDrive - GeForce FX5200 Ultra 64
iMac 20" - 256 Mo G5 à 1,6 GHz - SuperDrive - GeForce FX5200 Ultra 64
Always excited since many years by Apple keynotes. I actually follow it using Thinksecret, and it seems that they noticed two trap doors on stage, so maybe two new products ?
Surely a joke but Early Adopter report an idea by Microsoft to add Ain't to the language. LOL.
Maybe we should organize some sort of competition and submit our wishes to Redmond.
And Gidion imagine VB in 10 years:
What will VB look like in 10 years?
IF JAMMED GOTO BUMBLEF**K
WAZ'UP WITH DUDE FOO
IF DUDE IS A POPPER THEN
SCOOTCH DA FOO TO DA GC
IF FOR REAL THEN
HOLLER AT USER
END IFroughly translates to
ON ERROR GOTO ERRHANDLER
DECLARE foo AS DUDE = new DUDE()
IF (NOT foo IS IDude) THEN
IF (Err is SeriousException) THEN

I switched from VB to C# a few years ago... I do like VB, I just like C# better :)
Quick note to all vb'ers who have either found a syntax error in my vb code or disagree: It's just my opinion, so relax ;)
I had today an excellent meeting with Microsoft Ireland. Wow, those guys want really to shake up their efforts toward developers. They are listening, so it's time to move on and make things working.
It's a bit early to tell exactly what's going to happen, but I just can say I will have to dedicate some of my time for some new exciting community project with Microsoft Ireland very soon.
So if you are in Ireland and .Net developer, contact me through this blog, you won't regret it.
Developers, developers, developers ... :-)
Hilarious and not only for Irish :-)
Oh, Danny Bot, the robot war has started,
And you were built to fight as well as love.
I am now grown, your programmed tasks are over,
You must leave now, to kill, you warlike dove.
You taught me well and raised me to be loyal,
You cleaned my room of every spot of soil.
I greased your gears and filled you up with oil;
Oh, Danny Bot, oh Danny Bot, I love you so.
And if you come, your killing program over,
And I am dead, as dead I well may be,
For robot wars last longer than forever,
Please sing a mournful robot song for me.
And you shall hear, though dead you are and rotten,
Your legacy stored in my memory.
You will live on until the world's forgotten,
Until I melt or run into the boiling sea.
LITTLE MASTER'S GHOST
Until you melt or run into the boiling sea.

Well I think Microsoft folks did a pretty good job with the Service Pack but I am disappointed by Internet Explorer security.
Microsoft claims that the new pack block everything (or eventually ask you). Wrong, wrong and wrong :-(
After successfully installed the pack, activate all the required new securities, and blocking all the popups, I believed like many, thanks god, I can now work without too much hassle.
Wrong. A nasty spyware working as an exploit code, not only found a way in my computer, installed a nasty toolbar, created dozens of shortcut on my desktop, but the best installed itself as allowed sites in the popup blocker !!
And SP2 didn't moved at all, not a single alert, nada.
Thanks to some registry hacks, I found a way to at least dialled the toolbar, but I know the infamous code is still dormant somewhere, ready to attack again.
Scott you did a great job on weblogs.asp.net from an Admin point of view with then new comments moderated.
But I don't like the one regarding the main feed. Like many I'm sure, I work with the main feed (I don't use an aggregator all the time), and I like the fact to see the full list of bloggers there.
You implemented a system which I am sure make more readable the main feed, but pushing only the people who update their blog in 1 day is too much.
We are all aware about the huge activity on this weblog, and doing like that make some interesting blogs disappear too quickly.
I would prefer 7 days of posts, or an alphabetical order. Sorting by date is also messy if you consider all the different timezones.
Eventually why not consulting the bloggers here to see what they think ?
New website by Microsoft. Microsoft BookStore is surely a good idea.
You can find there all sort of Microsoft related books, and when you want to buy, they send you through a click to Amazon.com.
I think they should have a link to list all the new publications, this would be useful to check on new books. At the moment it seems to be just a good use of the Amazon web service.
I am very disappointed by Microsoft Ireland. After all a lot of MS employees from all around the world are blogging now.
What their colleagues in Ireland are doing ?? It puzzles me that in Ireland the communication between developers and Microsoft are in such a bad shape :-(
Unless the big campus building in Leopardstown (Dublin south if you don't know) is only occupied by senile accountants or leprechauns.
So come on, Microsoft Ireland employees, wake up, a whole community want to talk to you !!
A Visual Studio Add-In that supports easier development of RegEx statements, right within the Visual Studio IDE.
Great (not sure about the name sounds like incinerator, terminator, etc...) :-)
