Well that's it Rory Blyth is officialy part of the Channel 9 team. Nice chap but he's just a clown (for the good and the bad).
I am not quite sure it's a right thing to get him on board. Channel 9 has always been about the people in front of the camera not really the one behind (except for Robert laugh), and I am a bit worry that Rory could steal the show by being too 'clownesque', maybe more than Robert Scoble did.
Hopefully it won't be Channel Rory with Rory doing some silly stunts.
I met Robert in Ireland last year and it's clear that his passion for Channel 9 was really about the interviewees and not really about himself.
Anyway we'll see how this evolve and Rory good luck in your new adventure.
If you look closely at the way Vista manage a computer memory, you are ready for a first shock. Before having an heart attack or call the police for the missing memory read this deep explanation posted by Jeff Atwood.
You then learn that it's indeed a much better and improved thing than previous Windows versions.
In Vista, bye bye ActiveSync, welcome Windows Mobile Device Center (I think again a complicated acronym WMDC sounds like WMD, hopefully this won't explode too much!).
Apparently the tool is not yet ready and if you plug your mobile or PocketPC you won't see this screen.By the way I wonder if the image change regarding with the type of device I connect.
Bink.nu has a good tip (registry modification) to enable WMDC in Vista.
Microsoft has released a new add-in tool to help Visual Basic developers preserve Visual Basic 6 applications and breathe .Net into them. Microsoft released its Interop Forms Toolkit 1.0 as a free add-in that simplifies the process of displaying .Net WinForms in a VB6 application.
The new toolkit not only helps to preserve VB6 applications, but also lets developers add functionality to them through additional .Net forms.
This article will show you how to use Microsoft application blocks and be able to get your store procedure's return value and output parameters. You will find many articles on the web about calling a store procedure and getting the return value and output values using ado. net...but if you want to use sqlhelper you are out of luck for getting your return value.
We all love those silly things we get with silly alerts. Check this one posted on rogueamoeba. Logical Captain!
Now that finally you can turn off the startup sound in Vista, you can also see here the new Vista boot animation and sound (included in the latest build 5728).
Welcome to shell:revealed
, the home of the Windows Client team. They are the folks that build the core user interface for Windows!
shell:revealed isn't about Windows Vista, it's about Windows. Many of the people on the Windows Client team have been here a very long time and have plenty of knowledge to share with the world. This is the place to find out what they're doing, how we're doing it, and why. This site is dedicated to all Windows users.
Time now to tell them (nicely) what you think of Vista UI.
Hey you remember Robert Scoble the dude who was telling to all the planet that Microsoft was the greatest 'god' type company on this planet ;-) ? Robert was behind Channel 9 success.
No he's not retired in some fancy tropical island, on the contrary. Robert has been very active lately and its last adventure is the Scoble Show. This new show is about putting faces on very well known names not only from the blogosphere but also from big business guys like Jonathan Schwartz, CEO of Sun Microsystems.
Now it seems that Robert is close to the final coutdown and to tease us he has released a trailer of the first show.
That's interesting, my last project, Imagebank, a place where kids, schools and phtographers can store photos from all around Ireland is just close to a Beta version, and already an Irish blogger has spotted it.
Really cool, thanks for the blurb.
