  • TechEd 2006 - Recap

    I just arrived home from TechEd 2006 where I gave a breakout session on IIS6: Managing Effective Webfarms.  I have to say this was probably the best technical conference that I've attended.  I was scheduled to help out in the DEV and IIS7 booths and during that time I had plenty of time to discuss the inner workings with many of the IIS Program Managers and Developers that attended.  They are always enjoyable to talk to because of their intimate knowledge of the subject. 

  • Enabling Windows Vista Aero Glass

    I've been running Vista Beta 2 (Build 5384) for a few days now but the Aero Glass wasn't enabled for me.  The Aero Glass gives Windows-Key Tab 3D switching between windows, the hover over the start menu items shows a cool live screenshot of the window, and the regular Alt-Tab is enhanced.  There are other 3D and enhanced visual affects as well.
