Design Tweaking
I added some color to the section drop-down menus on the blog. For those of you with IE I’ll post a picture since can’t use the drop-downs (because of some CSS2 idiosyncracies in the layout that IE just can’t handle). I am nice enough to provide a plain list fallback for the navigation if you simply click on the buttons, though. Anyway, I also added some small ‘text-shadow’ details to parts of the site and modified the visited link color so that visited links are more readily distinguished.

Geronimo can take a flying leap
I know it's a bike shed discussion, but I couldn't resist entering the logo contest for the Apache Geronimo J2EE application server. For reasons unknown, the project is steering clear of using the historical Geronimo, so I used the expression "geronimo!" for inspiration and found a picture of a flying squirrel in mid-leap. More entries can be found on the geronimo-dev mailing list.

Evolving Custom Web Controls
Although sometimes you start out knowing you need a custom control, what more often happens is you find that you're using the same functionality in more than one place, so you start packaging it up into a control in order to remove duplication and improve reusability. This article takes a look at when and how you should do such things by taking a fairly simple piece of ASP.NET functionality and evolving it from some code on a form to a user control to a fully-functional custom web control. http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/using/building/webcontrols/default.aspx?pull=/library/en-us/dnaspp/html/aspnet-evolvecustomcontrols.asp

(over the weekend (last weekend): <a href="http://www.tmbg.com/froMain.html">They Might Be Giants</a>)
After giving Liz's nieces and nephew copies of No! by They Might Be Giants for helping out in our wedding last year, it seemed the perfect birthday gift this year was treating them to a TMBG show. Luckily (except in an egg before the chicken kind of way), TMBG performed a special kids' show at the Old Town School of Folk Music, just down the block from my apartment, last weekend.I'm not going to go into as much detail as Benjy gives in his reviews of TMBG shows, but that's just because I didn't have a notebook or his fanatical memory of every show they've every played with all included nuances (the man is committed).John, John, Dan, Dan, Dan, and Robin performed many of the songs off of No!, and one off of Bed Bed Bed, the kiddie albums. At one point or another, the performance was by the Deeply Felt Puppet Orchestra. Noteable non-kids album songs performed were "Istanbul," "Dr. Worm," "Why Does the Sun Shine?," "Particle Man," and "You're Not the Boss of Me" (Grammy-winning theme ...

Commands and UI
Today was a big source code check-in day. I sent well over 50 files to be checked into our source code control system, and I will be here late sending off a lot more. What kind of things did I change? Well, one of the most asked for features is the ability to add different UI types to a CommandBar, and with different settings. For example, today when you call Commands.AddNamedCommand we will create a command. You can then add UI to a command bar for that command with the Command.AddControl method. But that UI element is always a button, not combo boxes, not menu controllers (the split drop-down button like that for the undo / redo command), etc. The change for Whidbey allows you to specify which control type should be used. This is the enum that contains the different control types available (this list is subject to change, either with the addition or subtraction of additional elements): enum vsCommandControlType { vsCommandControlTypeSeparator = 1, vsCommandControlTypeButton = 2, ...

sTICKEYkEYS
Sometimes I'll go to type something in, and I'll be holding down the shift key. Lock, loaded and ready to write one kick ass sentence. The problem is that my brain kinda forgets what I'm doing. No big deal, I'm used to it. But the next thing I know BEEP StickeyKeys has turned on. And in a rush of confusion that can only be brought on by when your brain is at idle and suddenly gets beeped at, I simply hit enter. God help me at this point. Pressing shift acts like the caps lock key, the caps lock key seemingly makes the little light on the keyboard mean the opposite of whatever it indicates, and I'm pretty sure the Scroll look key and the SysRq keys switch functions too. Any combination of shift, caps lock and the letter n seemingly simply set caps lock to the opposite of whatever I think it should be at that point. It's a little humbling to realize that sometimes my brain will cause me to type at a speed that Microsoft has assumed could only be brought on by a physical disability.

Alright. I've mentioned this to a few of you, but I've neglected to post it on the blog because... well, who knows why. We're hosting a showing of the first two Lord of the Rings Extended Editions before the premiere of Return of the King at our place. Show up for one, or show up for both, leave, come back, whatever. It's all good. These are four hour movies, so this is an eight hour shindig. Be prepared to get good and sick of us. :) To allow plenty of time for bathroom breaks, the inevitable latecomer, etc. I'd like to start at around 2pm. This is also to provide a decent cushion of time to get to the theater after the bit at our place--if it's anything like the last two years, it's going to be packed. Carpooling is an option we may want to explore. Food will be had sometime during the event; we have pizza within easy driving or delivery distance, and there's a Chinese takeout place that we love just around the corner. This is a fairly open invitation to anyone we know in the ...
