PDC: Avalon and Indigo
Probably the last one for the day since I'm heading back to the hotel to get ready for the party tonight. Avalon and Indigo covered creating applications that utilize Avalon and Indigo together. After covering a little bit of the basics from both technologies, he created an application that calls indigo services and has a rich UI on top of it. The application he demo'd was a blogging application ( I think I have heard the term "blog" in every session I have been in). It's amazing how easy services and callbacks are and how easy it is to bind it to a UI and make it look very professional. This kind of thing is going to change the way we develop smart clients. If only it was available today...

PDC: Keynote Day 3
Day 3's keynote was pretty good. It was focused on Microsoft Reasearch and covered some stuff they were working on. The one thing that really stood out was the "social software" application they demoed. It covered blogs, photos, comments, and building rich networks of people through your interactions. I'm not sure if this is something that will ever be released, but if it is, it will be big.

PDC: WinFS Syncronization
I've posted my notes from the session on WinFS Syncronization. It's going to be very easy to sync information between computers, PDA's, and phones. It's also going to be easy to share applications with other users and have them pick things up. I was quite impressed at all the work that was been put into syncronization. Marc was also in the presentation and had a few notes, too.

Monad
Monad (an unfortunate codename from greek philosophy meaning "indivisible unit") has me excited. It's the "new command shell" from MSFT. You may have heard of it by now, some have said "like unix"... I think I'll say it's "like a .net shell". How so? Think classes passing objects from one to the other, perhaps giving a UI, taking input, or performing actions - all in managed code (.net). Hmm, you say, isn't that like any application? Yes! One exception only - you string together the classes (called "commandlets") that will get executed at the command line, passing in attributes for each class, and implicitly giving the order in which to execute them. get/process | sort "handles" | out/xml Okay, perhaps not excatly right syntax, but pretty close. What this will do is instantiate an object of the managed class that (with attributes) says it provides the commandlet get/process. It will then call special methods on that class, and pass the output object (in this case an array of ...

PDC Wednesday
It has been a long couple of days, I have talked with a lot of customers in the past 24 hours, and I was up until 3:00AM last night talking about Add-ins, macros, and the like. But I need to say, I am quite excited about what I have been hearing. After weeks, and months of writing code, you tend to hear only the horror stories of where we went wrong, the one bug that seems to bring a project to its knees, and makes somebody’s life miserable. You definitely start to question if what you are doing is the right thing. But Then I talk to people, see the products, hear the success stories, and everything seems right in the world again. I am now ready to go back to Redmond and write a whole lot of new code to fix where we could do better. I also got a lot of feedback about new features we should add. Some of them I will try to get into Whidbey, some we do not have the time but should make it into the next version. I got to go to a few talks about Longhorn, showing all the new UI ...

Manufactured Anger
With a hop, skip and a jump I’ve landed in a deep shitpile known as ‘Imperialist Design’. I asked for it and my alter-ego was pushing really hard to stop, but sometimes the unholy union of my right hand and mouse has its own mind, it wanders the WWW at a rate and accord no-one could possibly stop. It all started with one Walid Jumblatt, a Lebanese politician of the Progressive Socialists, who is obviously anti-American because all Socialists are. Mr. Walid decided to annoy the American government with a comment and some clarification: Druze leader Walid Jumblatt described the US Deputy Defence Secretary Paul Wolfowitz as a “virus” who needed to be destroyed, a day after the American emerged unscathed from a guerrilla rocket attack on the fortified Baghdad hotel where he was staying. The Druze chief and head of Lebanon’s Progressive Socialist Party said in a statement he hoped Wolfowitz, who he criticised as an architect of the U.S.-led war on Iraq and a friend of Israel, would not ...

Clarification on MVC Pull and MVC Push
It seems that many projects have tried making their own variations Model-View-Controller implementations. I'm not to sure if they even got it right if that is even possible. Struts and Expresso are MVC Push, WebWork, Maverick and Jucas are MVC Pull. Huh? What is the difference?

Review of state judicial homepages
The Judiciary.org has published a visual review of all 50 state judicial homepages. The following assessment criteria were applied:Is the Home Page designed to make full use of the visitor's monitor, regardless of resolution settings? If the Home Page does not make full use of monitor resolution, is content centered to enhance appearance and ease of viewing?Does the Home Page tarnish the high professional and ethical standards associated with the judicial function by advertising or promoting private sector products and services?Is the Home Page visually appealing?Does the Home Page enhance a visitor's inclination to further explore the site?Is the Home Page designed to be accessible and navigable by the vast majority of those who might use it?Are color combinations used that allow the site to be accessible to those who suffer from varying degrees of color blindness?

Sharp Zaurus SL-C760
Sharp Zaurus SL-C760: "Comment: A slick little device. Yet again, don't expect to integrate it with anything on your windows desktop. Yes they have calendars, contacts and the like, but chances are that you already have an application doing this stuff. In my case it's Act, for others it's Outlook, for others it's another application, this is where it hurts when you want to use such device at this point. The only platforms with real coverage for integration with existing applications are. You can find some, you can tweak some, but who has the time? I just want it to work. Anyhow slick device!"

Panther's Linux pandering
I installed Mac OS X 10.3 "Panther" on my iMac yesterday, after a false start. I prefer to do a virgin reformat and reinstall rather than use the upgrade options, and I made a backup on my WiebeTech Fire800 external hard drive. When that turned out to be thrashed, I thought the installer had reformatted both drives. It turns out there is an incompatibility between Panther and Firewire drives using the Oxford 922 chipset, firmware revision 1.0.2, at least when connecting a Firewire 400 Mac to a Firewire 800 drive. After upgrading the firmware to 1.0.5, everything is back to normal. Fortunately I have off-site backups for most of my files. Normally, I would have a second backup on a drive that I specifically selected because it uses a different Firewire bridge, the Indigita-powered EZQuest Cobra+, but as Murphy would have it, it was back at the manufacturer for replacement after the hard drive in it started failing. Never assume anything... An interesting thing is there are some ...

Nelly Loses 1 Million in Jewelry; Insurance pays only $2,000
LAS VEGAS -- More than $1 million in jewelry was stolen from Nelly's hotel room while the rapper was in town for the 2003 Radio Music Awards, authorities said Tuesday. Nelly said the pieces were taken Monday from his room at the Aladdin hotel-casino.Nelly claims over $1 million dollars worth of jewelry was taken from his room. Nelly was scheduled for a photo shoot even though Nelly is minus his valuable gems and was said to be traumatized by the incident. It was also confirmed that the rapper didn't bother to secure the jewelry in either the hotel's safe nor the safe in the room. Insurance claims the valued jewelry was bought at Wal-mart and is only worth about $2000 dollars US. They also noted only a friggin idiot would go around with cheap looking jewelry like that to look important.
