Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.
Telerik is our sponsor for this show.
Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

Honestly I don't like to hand over all my email to google or microsoft. not that I have anything secret, but I'm just wondering what would the next step be for those companies? to collect data on our dreams?
I prefer to have my email history inside my own network, not even on my hosting company. true, they can read anything I send or receive, but still I'll feel better having them with me.
I didn't realise that Google apps for your domain was so well integrated! I listened to the podcast on the train home Friday evening, set up GAFYD (err, yes) that same evening and it works great. Thanks for bringing this one to me.
Also the Title property doesn't have the Hanselminutes #XX prefix. It sure simplifies the process of keeping current shows available if title sorts correctly.
btw...your blog is a daily read and your podcast is a weekly listen. Thanks.
Carl mentioned that he felt there was no way to transfer email messages from an old server / account into the newly set-up Live Mail account (fronted by his own custom domain).
I would beg to differ. By using the new(ish) Outlook Connector you would be able to view both accounts in the same environment and simply drag emails between accounts / folders in Outlook.
This is akin to what I've been doing for years; copying emails from my Yahoo account (downloaded to Outlook via POP3) to my Hotmail account (connected via the (presumably) proprietary HTTP synchronisation method which allowed me to manage sub-folders). This has now been superceded by the Outlook Connector which does effectively the same thing with some new protocol which I've yet to investigate.
While Carl actually mentioned this in a follow-up comment in the 'Tools' show I thought this thread would be a better place to post this info.
