ArcCast with Ron Jacobs (Channel9 Architectual Podcast)
http://channel9.msdn.com/Showpost.aspx?postid=181352

While I was out in Las Vegas, I sat down with Ron Jacobs of Channel9's ArcCast (Architecture Podcast).  We had entirely way too much fun during this.  Ron sent me the whole audio file which I plan on putting up as a special "Behind the Scenes" download for the ASP.NET Podcast once I get a little bit more done with our "Beginning AJAX with ASP.NET Book."  Thanks again to Ron.

Sys.Profile.set_autoSave method in Atlas

If you are using the ASP.NET 2.0 profiles in Atlas, you want to pay attention to the Sys.Profile.set_autoSave(boolean).  If you pass a true in, changing any value in a Profile results in the updating of the profile on the server.  Setting it to false gives you much more control.  Also, if you are seeing the updates being performed on your server multiple times, you might want to look into this.  I had some example code that had the udpates being made multiple times.  When I set the value to false on a page load, the problem of mutliple calls went away. 

Overall, I think that this is very cool.  I can see why they have this and I think it is a good idea.

What's wrong with Weblogs.Asp.Net?
Is anyone else seeing problems?  I've been getting all kinds of errors starting last night.  Seems kinda strange.  There is no rhyme or reason associated with the errors.  The most common error seems to be a Null Reference error.  I'm wondering if the problem is load, DOS, code update, general tweaking, or just what is going on.  BTW, I'm not complaining, just wondering what's happening.
XML Schemas, not for the faint of heart

I've been trying to get a fairly simple XML Schema example to work with validation.  I've been at this off and on for about 8 hours over 3 days.  While I am not an expert in all phases of XML, trying to write a Schema by hand doesn't seem to be very simple.  I asked a couple of friends (Rob Chartier and David Silverlight) to help, but they couldn't get it to work either.  Finally, I downloaded an XML editor on Saturday.  Within about 10 minutes of installing it, I had everything working that I need to have.  Why does it have to be so hard?

PS. Big Thanks to Dave and Rob for putting up with my stupid questions.  I appreciate them not telling me to f--- off.
