  • Microsoft UK

    I’m visiting the Microsoft campus in Reading on Friday 26 October (tomorrow). I’ll be hanging out in building 3 I believe, for an MVP event. Do stop by and say hello if you’re in the area.

  • To XmlLite or Not To XmlLite

    Since publishing my XmlLite article in MSDN Magazine I have received a lot of questions about distribution. Clearly developers are very excited to have a fast and “lite” alternative to MSXML for native code but the lack of a redistributable for Windows XP keeps coming up as a roadblock.

  • What Do You Want Me To Write About?

    The third installment of my Windows with C++ column should be out next month and I am starting to think about what I will be writing about next year. It looks like I’ll be writing 5 articles for this column next year and I thought I would follow the lead of fellow columnist Charles Petzold and ask you, dear reader, what you would like me to write about.

  • Where Have I Been?

    Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few months. Karin and I moved our family (three little kids) from beautiful British Columbia to England. Why on earth did we do that? Well it’s a long story but basically hopes of getting a US visa to work in Redmond ran out and we really wanted to get closer to family and couldn’t have been further away in Vancouver. It has been a long and arduous process but I am happy to report that we have settled in a town called Whyteleafe. The location isn’t particularly interesting as we just needed a place to settle while we figure out where exactly we want to live. Any ideas?  :)
