xbox. Looks like a few people liked the bloggers xbox session idea, but I need some practice, I just got a schoolin' from James. My gamertag is zak42. [Simon Fell]

Awesome...we need to collect a list of gamertags, or create an rss tag for it. ;)

<link rel="XBoxLive" type="xbox/app+gamertag" title="GamerTag" href="Glucose">

Just kidding...anyway, my XBox Live GamerTag is "Glucose" and I'd love to hook up with some strategically minded .NET/WebServices Bloggers for some Ghost Recon...

(oh, and I just beat Splinter Cell - the greatest single player game ever.  I'm SO looking forward to the Downloadable Levels in Feburary over XBoxLive)

I [Jason] shipped the March "Managed Space" column for .NET Developers Journal yesterday. It was one of he hardest pieces I've written relative to the word count but I think it turned out well. Along the way I spent a lot of time thinking about what a managed platform should really do - my views of the CLI have changed quite a bit as a result.
[Managed Space]

Jason is hunting for the Zen of managed code.  Sigh...I continue to use "Zen" analogies in my presentations, and have for the last several years.  If you've seen me present you've heard such collectable nuggets as "Just grok the zen of it...you can look up the rest" and "Spend more time focused on getting it and less time sweating minutia" as well as such top ten Zen hits as

"XML is a bowl...it doesn't make judgements about what you put into it." 

Not quite sure what I meant by that one, but it sounds like a Zen Koan and it's in my PowerPoint notes pane. ;)

Anyway...My own personal hunt for Zen is why this weblog is also available via http://www.computerzen.com

I just put up a document outlining my tips for a Successful Technical Presentation (with many Microsoft specific tips).  I'm pretty happy with it and I think it provides a lot of good information.  Please take a look!

Stickies For Windows Stickienote Desktop Application

Stickies for Windows. Stickie-note desktop applications aren't anything new. But I think Stickies for Windows is worth a mention anyhow, seeing as it's written in C# and licensed as freeware. Now, I don't assume an application is going to be good just because it's written in C#. I am finding, though, that I am a lot more willing to try out random utilities written in one of the .NET languages than otherwise. ... [Larkware News]

This IS a cool program.  I use the "Official POST-IT Notes" version, but I really like Stickies' understated interface better.  I'm going to give it a whirl. 

BUG: Stickies doesn't understand multiple monitors/negative coordinates.  I've moved my stickies to the left monitor (-coord space) and now they are stuck, and I can't move them back! :)

Looks like Microsoft still owns the corporate (often static or silos) face of Web Page Serving
