I just checked to the time difference and it seems that the key notes will start around 9 AM (09:00) PDT which is 6 PM (18:00) CEST on June 26th. The last breakout session finishes at 6:15 PM (18:15). Then there are country drinks from 20:00-23:00. It could be done...
Kinnect be HD? Not sure what you are asking when Kinnect games are HD. As for the camera itself, it is pointless going into HD. Kinnect already can track eye brows, so, IMO, it is already HD enough.
The Kinect camera uses only one fourth of it's resolution and it is a very poor resolution if you ever tried VideoKinect. The resolution is reduced to make sure that the USB bandwidth is not used up completely by Kinnect. By using USB3 it should be possible to have a HD camera and still have enough bandwidth for other devices. But a higher resolution also requires more processing power for the body tracking. So it is a trade-off.
I'am pretty sure that the next version of Xbox is only 2-3 years away, but how bold will Microsoft be?
Will it be without a DVD/Blu-ray drive? Download all content from Xbox Live?
Will it be with 3D support?
Will it have a SSD drive (no moving parts - besides cooling)
Will it have USB 3 so that Kinect can use all the bandwidth that it needs for better quality of the cameras?
Will Kinect be included in the launch setup?
Will Kinect be HD?
Will Kinect use a wide angle lens, so that you don't need a large free space to play (two people at a time)?
Will Xbox V.Next rock?
Speculation can begin now!
I found this fun video on .NET vs Java.
I might disagree with the ideas made in the video, but it is quite funny....
Scott Guthrie mentions in his blog that VS 2010 RC will be released "shortly":
How long is shortly? As far as I recall Microsoft has often released Betas and RCs of Visual Studio on fridays.
I know, I usually say the same... I didn't know about the HTML Agility Pack, I will look at it next time I need something like that...blowdart said:Ion Todirel said:*snip*

DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS!
Microsoft has the best developing platform in the world with .Net!
I need to lay of the coffee,..
We should team up and create a .NET appreciation day – just like “Talk like a pirate day”…
A colleague of mine had a problem and came to me. A provider of data had closed the ftp server that he used to download some files from. The files were now only available from a web site and he asked me if it was possible to download it from the web site. He sent me an email with the URL and the credentials needed to logon to the site.
I started to code the solution in VS2008, the first problem is that the site demanded forms authentication so I sent a post to the page with the data that the form needed to logon. WebException occurred! It turned out that the System.Net.WebClient refuses to connect to a site where the certificate has expired – Google code and 5 minutes later I had the solution. Now I was able to download the web page that contains the links to the different files that was available. I used a regular expression to find the anchors in the html document and I downloaded the latest file.
It took me about an hour to solve my colleague’s problem and I didn’t know much about System.Net.WebClient when I started out. Microsoft .NET made it so simple to solve this problem quickly – I love .NET!
