Norwegian accent? What do you mean Norwegian accent? Now that's rude ;-)

for loops, five loops, even six loops. Now that's a good one!

Thoroughly enjoyable. When does Mo get her own podcast? At the very least, could she make a few guest appearances per year...

One of the better podcasts ... even though it was non-technical. You're wife did a great job.

Good podcast. Being a father of 4 (14 to 6 years old) I was interested in hearing how you find time to stay current with latest programming trends while being a good father to your family (beside depriving myself of sleep).

ROTFL on the "six loops". Gotta love it. Best Regards.

I think what women like about "loud" men is not the volume, but the quality of reception, i.e. it's not that you talk a lot, but that a lot of people listen :)

How come my avatar is the same as the previous poster's?

So when do we get the interview with Mo on how she puts up with you? Just a curious **Smart-A**" on the side of the auditorium.

This was great, I like the banter between you and your wife. It sounds very similar to conversations I have had with my non-technical significant other.

I enjoyed the show! Lars

This was a great Podcast. One more request for more Mo! I thought she totally understood that she was making a hilarious joke on 4 loops.

She forced you to explain MVC - which no one ever does. Still unanswered is a question about why to use it, and when.

Scott, great show. Your wife is smart and insightful. You are both lucky. Great catch.
March 17, 2009 16:24
I have a new standard on how to identify a good programmer. How many loops can you do?
Great podcast!
March 17, 2009 16:46
Great one Scott. Carry on.

Amazing podcast! Mo should interview more often, a couple of times a year, as suggested. This way we us "real people" can hear that you are actually just like us, and not an alien that doesn't sleep or eat, as you could maybe think from time to time. :)

It were expecially interesting to hear how your typical day goes, as I think we are many people who could use 48, or more, hours per day from time to time. Girlfriend/wife, kids, work, cleaning the house, making dinner etc etc.

Good luck MIX09, looking forward to see your session. Hope it's just as fun as your "BabySmash" session, which were kind of like "Nerd/.NET stand-up". I laughed and learned, which is a great combi.

Scott, great podcast! I'm really looking forward to see your session at MIX! You're the best presenter at Microsoft.... the best ever!! :P
The stuff you come up with is just so elegant! Entertaining people while talking about .NET, MVC, ETC, that's the skill in itself!

A podcast full of wit ! Very nice, it put a big smile on face in the morning. Thank you.
