Not a bad weekend...

Not a bad weekend, here's the highlights:

  • My wife bought a Honda Civic Hybrid.  The average mileage of my household is now ~50MPG considering my other car.
  • Enter The Matrix is truly amazing, and the video footage is also snazzy, adding a great deal (IMHO) of content and insight into the story.  Although, there is a bizzarre kiss between Niobe (Jada Pinkett) and Persephone (Monica Bellucci) that did make me wonder if this "exclusive footage" isn't really just "extra footage."
  • TechEd is going to be very snazzy this year.  If you spot me, please do say Hello.  Also, if you are in my DEV389 session, please start "the wave."
  • I continue to be impressed with ASP.NET 1.x.  I'm also convinced of two things:
         1. ASP.NET 2.0 is going to rock. 
         2. The whole "stateless web"-page-view-browser-metaphor, while scalable, is starting to wear on me.  
         3. Still, I long for the days where I'd telnet to cdconnection.com and send my credit card screaming in plaintext across the 'net. :)

I'll be real interested to hear how the two cars compare - I'm on the verge of buying a hybrid so I'm keen to hear folks' real world experiences.

VW Jetta Diesel - 54 mpg hwy between Portland & Seattle. Nice car (just don't start it with the garage doors closed!)
