Feeling Fluey
I am sick. I had the quickest viral infection of my life yesterday. It took only from 11am to 1pm yesterday for me to have a full on flu. And no, I had no sign whatsoever that it was coming. It all began and developed in that 2 hour period. I keep thinking and thinking what it have been but nope, can’t come up with anything. The tissues in the men’s room at work is a possibility, but I don’t know how throwing my used tissue into the basket could’ve caused anything. Or maybe it was the tissues in the rack itself eh? Hmm… I am feeling better now. Though I do have the typical symptoms… runny nose, big fat eyes and an awful sinus. And because it came so sudden and I was so unprepared, I had to use those rough souviettes I found in the kitchen to wipe off the you know what, and now even the softest of them all tissues are feeling like sandpaper up there. I slept quite a bit though. I am hoping that will give me the necessary strength to go through the day. I have been skipping the gym ...

.nz joins ccNSO but was it an informed decision
Couple of weeks ago .nz applied to join the ccNSO. From what I can tell the 'opposing view' of why a ccTLD should not join the ccNSO was barely, if at all, presented to InternetNZ members or council. Did council vote on joining the ccNSO based on a fully informed decision?I am doing some research on this and the process that the application was submitted as I have found some interesting anomalies.

Validator improvements in Whidbey
The lowly validator will be updated quite a bit in Whidbey. First, there will be validator groups, allowing you ro have validators that only fire when controls in the same group that create submissions (like buttons) fire. The Whidbey validator framework alos allows you to set a control to get focus when an error occurs. The group validator is perfect for forms where you dynamically create a number of user controls, and you want the button clicks to only validate the controls for the user control that contains them. Doing that requires some other sort of validation in the current ASP.NET, since validation is fired for all validators whenever the form is submitted..

Microsoft already answered this with refusing to pay Eolas for a license and just disabled this functionality in the IE versions. Now W3C steps in and asked the US Patent Office to revoke the Eolas claim.

PDC Community Application
I absolutely love the PDC Community Application!! (http://pdcvibe for those of you @ pdc). You can see screen shots of it at Kirk Allen Evan's Blog. I am curious if they are going to release the source code for this cool app back to the community? I really hope so!

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: "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!"
