  • Asteroids, C#, 3D and OpenGL

    Does anyone else find it poignant that this project uses OpenGL rather than DirectX?

    Microsoft should actively support and promote a world class .NET API for DirectX.

    Microsoft should actively support and promote a world class .NET API for DirectX running on desktop PCs.

  • The Office Show: Microsoft Word

    Thanks for posting the link to Part 4 of the OOXML spec. I have a recent high end 64bit m/c with loads of RAM so even without going to draft mode I can, if I am patient, load and move about this document. I wonder if this document is in any MS Word  test suite? One reason I am not sure that it can be is because using "ctrl-click" on any reference such as"(ยง2.18.106)" at the foot of page 296 fails by taking you to the start of the document. Funnily enough the Navigation Header Browser works, as do TOC references.

     

    My hope is that Word could be a platform for building robust large documents, but this example, ironically built by MS themselves to describe a MS Word thing, seems to be a bit of a kick in the teeth. Anyway - over to MS to tell us about viewing/navigating/editing this file in MS Word 2010. I propose that this file (or a fixed version) become the benchmark for serious Word use.

     

     

  • Jon Udell: Brian Jones on Office XML

    Jon's remark about "Beatles fame" puts an immediate spanner in the works, compounded by XML Brian's lack of WTF (or maybe he was being polite). Rolling Stones guys.....

    Now I have that off my chest I can listen to the rest of the podcast.
