I'm not eligible to win one of the Xbox consoles, but... I'm Blogging TechlEd 2004! Are you going to TechEd? I'm hoping to see a lot of people from last year's TechEd and the PDC. This will be my seventh TechEd (98-04). I'm officially an addict since I couldn't possibly miss a year and break this streak. I know there are others that have attended more than seven and I know at least one person who has attended every single year. Of all the conference's I've been to, it's still my favorite (the PDC ...

I tried the whole blogging thing in its infancy and then left it almost as quickly as I entered. That was awhile ago and its time for another run at it. I will do the obligatory introduction post, but attempt to keep it short. I'm a software design engineer at HP by day, technical author by night. My latest book is “Microsoft Visual C# .NET 2003 Developer's Cookbook“ whose title is 4 characters longer than my 1st book “Sams Teach Yourself Visual C++.NET in 24 Hours“. There ...

Earlier this evening (or late last night depending on where you are at in the country), my interest was piqued by an image Chris Sells has on his blog. I noticed he had an image of the “International High IQ Society”. Now, I fully understand that some people have given this a stigma of the “I'm not smart enough to be in Mensa” variety, but I still think it is cool. Out of curiosity, I went to the High IQ Society's website. On their website, they have a series of free IQ tests. ...

Hi Guy ( I am not talking to any Guy, I am talking to the Guy on http://weblogs.asp.net ), welcome to the blog world. Guy wants to know what he can and cannot share on the blogs, I read his post and following are my opinion:- If you find something on the Internet and you want to share it on the blog, than you should , becuase in my opinion that is not a trade secret or source code of your product, you found something and you pointed it Well may be your company payed for some of the skills that you ...
Got an email today from Roland Siegert who is a Developer at www.macropool.com- the creator of Contentsaver which offer features similar and few more to Onfolio at this stage, he tells me that he was reading my blogs for me days ( I take that as a compliment). I had a problem with Contentsaver when I installed (discussed here) it and could not initialise the software (some .dll issue), but Roland tells me that he has fixed the issue and yesterday released an updated version (2119) of Contentsaver ...
Well first of all, let me admit this, today is the first time I have read Dan Gillmor's weblog in a bit of details and I had in my RSS feeds for nearly three months now.I just was not trying to read his weblog and thought his journal as boring for my reading requirements and I did not feel the same today. Today I went through the process of trying his journalism in Newsgator and soon I was getting into it. I read quite a few entries from him, but I concentrated on Chapter 2,3 & 4 of his new book ...
Well, I think that the death of my new Bloggie Award has come. When I started the thing, I didn't realize that there was already an official “Bloggie Awards”. This got me thinking though. Scoble has talked in the past about the whole “signal vs. noise“ argument. However, what is it that causes the bit-flip from noise to signal to be flipped? How can a blogger stand out from the crowd? Find a unique hook One might think that the large rotundness that I have might help me stand ...
Orkut seems to be offline, oofffhh, I cannot access my social network now, what should I do , what should I do, I will keep on blogging than.... Are they taking it seriously, I faced some technical problems quite a few times before too!
Blogging has lead the ‘page rank’: web search results ranking algorithm pioneered by founders of google to do their job better in some ways and on another front lead them hopelessly astray. Page rank is the algorithm working behind the scenes in almost all leading search engines of today at least in part to rank web results. What makes blogging so useful to the page rank algo is that the human touch involved in blogging gives further authenticity to web pages which owners include on their ...
Quite a few people in Pakistan are blogging thier way today then about a year ago. Some blogs I have come across are mind boggling in the quality and quantity of the content others interesting look like pure out streams of frustrated voices. All are worth a read. I guess blogging is helping each of us learn a lot about us and identity the individual we all know and see in mirror every day. I have found a need to bring on a Pakistani blogging site, ‘.Text’ is real good blogging tool and ...
Robert has once again made an excellent post on blogging relationship network. I would quite agree with his views. Blogging and talking and linking to other people does make an impact and creates a kind of network relationship between people involved. I have had read many many people since I started blogging couple of months back and for some of them I think and feel as if they are my friend and I can trust them. Quite a few bloggers have earned my trust and friendship and I feel comfortable reading ...
Well, here goes. I'm starting this blog to add my voice to conversation that is the blogging world. I've been reading blogs for a while now and I'm completely hooked on the geek blogs. I'm interested in all things geeky with .Net development in particular. At my day job, I'm part of a two person team and together we develop and maintain our intranet and all internally developed apps. We build whatever is needed. We've been looking into SharePoint Portal Server 2003, Office 2003, and Windows Mobile ...

Andy Brummer has developed an interesting way to run aspx pages with out the use of IIS and he has also written shell and IE custom protocols to take care of the rest... read about all this from this article at code project...

Ofcourse I am returning back to blogging after a long long time. just setting up my essentials on this machine..

The blogging bug has bitten again...One of my fellow PR folks at Que and Sams has started his own blog. Kit's blog is mostly focused on open source topics but he also likes good music and cheese! You can see photographic evidence here. I hope to find lots of interesting things and reasons to link coming from Kit's new blog ...
In this post, a few stories from the adventures of producing the TechEd Bloggers and PDC Bloggers websites.
My beliefs on Project Management , Customer Delight and QualityI never knew Vivek maintained a site. I personally have always listened to him carefully when he has to talk.Read the views of a person whom I respect a lot and also someone who lives, breathes, talks Quality & Program managementI do consider him a Six Sigma Guru. Hats off to you Vivek. I wish he has time (or probably takes some time and starts blogging about PM & Quality & Six Sigma). For those who know Vivek Dixit they know ...
I have downloaded and installed an interesting application - BlogJet. It's a Windows-client for my blog tool (as well as some for other tools).Actually, it was not me who wrote this text: when I launched BlogJet for the first time, it's edit window already contained this text and the program asked me to click Post and Publish button to post this text to my blog in order to test the connection (yes, and the text above is not mine too! :-)... So, I did. [Ansari] Their is one more line here which I ...
Seems like everyone is moving their blog these days, so here I am with a new home at GeeksWithBlogs.net. I'm not planning on terminating my original blog at drewby.net. I'll continue to post about personal interests, family and Japan over there. I hope I can make a positive contribution to this excellent community that Jeff Julian has set up here at GeeksWithBlogs.net. What I like about this particular deployment of .Text is the freedom that Jeff gives to the content. My main technical interests ...
There's been a lot of moving around in the Microsoft blogging world, and in the last couple of days the dust has finally settled, and the new default home for what was once http://blogs.gotdotnet.com is now http://blogs.msdn.com. Lots of people worked really hard to make http://blogs.msdn.com a reality and I'm waving a big Thank You to all of them! I'd also like to personally thank Scott Watermasysk for his willingness to move and convert (BlogX to .Text) all of the posts for those bloggers moving ...
Once I started using Newsgator, I was pretty much hooked. When I only had my one blog on GDN, my blogging life was easy -- I installed the BlogX plugin, and posted away. Once I moved this work-ish blog to GeeksWithBlogs (thanks Jeff!) and created another blog for more personal stuff (it's still a really fuzzy line though), I couldn't post as easily from Outlook because I could only install/use one newsgator posting plugin. I posted a Lazy Web request and lucky for me, Kent responded. I've been using ...

Well, just not working...and boy I don't know what to do.  So I am taking portraits of the dogs!

Chandler and Milton.

Actually, I have been working on my thesis proposal.  I have been doing research about blogging and communities. It is all very interesting and I can't wait to get you all involved. Hope everyone had a great holiday and is ready to start the countdown to 2004!

Really worth a read articles are available here Tomorrow's Computing today basically I am busy doing my work and preparing for the user group presentation on Longhorn to be delivered day after tomorrow. Btw any folks from HYD reading this can walkin for the user group meeting. Treat the text below as the invite :) any one interested in Microsoft technologies can walkin here ofcourse he needs to be in Hyderabad (India) Hi All, The next usergroup meeting is scheduled to be held on 19 Dec at 6:30 pm ...
David Pollard has a breakdown of the process of blogging.  This interests me quite a bit. I won't paste in the flow chart, but you should take a look.  I am working on a thesis proposal that is essentially about blogging as a community building communications tool.  I may need some help with stats and surveys in the near future so please keep an eye out!
Well, I went to the local PADNUG meeting tonight. It was a Longhorn presentation by Scott Hanselman and Jim Blizzard. Also at the meeting, I finally got to meet Rory, although I found out that we actually have seen each other before at the local Game Developer user group and never officially met. ANYWHO.... A couple of observations - Scott is a very funny guy and, in my opinion, a really good presenter - Rory. Believe it or not, Rory is actually more funny in person (if that's even possible) when ...
I'm not sure if web logs will be successful communication tool or not. I guess what I'm worried about is that a number of people within the organization have mentioned that they don't know how much it'd be used. When people have questions, they usually call select individuals to answer their question. Everybody knows: programmers are hard-headed - especially the good ones. Most programmers don't want to accept someone else's opinion when they have one of their own. And, for problems with projects, ...
I am probably one of the last, but I am blogging from Longhorn.  I love it!!!!  I have to week to play (Michelle is in CA).   Feels like christmas.
In between my wild adventures with XP/Longhorn/VirtualPC, I decided to install OS X Panther on my Mac. I just picked it up after work and was really excited to get it going since I have been running 10.1 after my harddrive fiasco. Anyway, the installation was great and my machine is running 3 times better than before. So I decided I wanted to blog from IE using .Text web admin. Right when I started typing, POW!, the browser crashed. I thought it was a fluke so I tried again, same result. 10.3 comes ...
I know I'm late getting some posts out here...I'm amazed at all the blogs getting posted already. Are you guys still attending any of the sessions, or just blogging the whole week!? :) Pre-conference day was pretty much re-hash of the last couple years of technology. Not a lot new, just getting everyone on a level playing field I guess. Let's see: xml talk with Don, Tim, and Gudge. Great to hear Don again after a long absence. Didn't get a lot out of the basics of xml that they were going over. Thought ...
This is my first blog!  Thanks to Jeff, the geek with the blogs, for getting all of this going.  I am looking forward to blogging useful and fun information about everything technology (and about me too, of course).

Jeff and I are at PDC, and in about 20 minutes we are heading to an academic meeting with Microsoft at the Bonavanture Hotel in sunny Los Angeles.  We'll update on that later.   Thanks again for setting me up Jeff!

SQL Server 2000's Coolest Features Just when you think you have a handle on SQL Server 7.0, Microsoft ships a new SQL Server release. SQL Server 2000 might skip 1,993 release numbers, but you won't find the same degree of difference between SQL Server 2000 and 7.0 as you found between SQL Server 7.0 and 6.5. Even so, this latest release is full of new functionality. Here are seven of my favorite new SQL Server 2000 features. 7. Integrated XML Support XML support is key to Microsoft's push to Web-enable ...

Many thanks to Jeff on setting up a blog for me. So now I should take time on a regular basis and fill in my thoughts here ... :)

I started blogging here and I am planning to discontinue soon..

Looks like we are off to a good start.  If you know anyone who wants a blog without the hassles of blogging about a particular topic, please send them my way.  The future plans will have a Main Feed that will be monitored by the administration before putting it up so you can blog about whatever without making people frustrated that are looking for geeky developer entries only.
