    Welcome to Channel 9.  Welcome to being CSA!

    Our last CSA... as great as he was -  didnt post very much.  Let's hope you do better. Wink

    Couple of small things the old CSA left behind:

    1.  Please fix this.  ( you know... that it once worked perfect - till MSN marketers got their hands on it - so every URL you type wrong you now have to copy and paste - where as for about a month or two before it actually asked you what you meant - and put what you typed in a new search input box?  Thanks Smiley  and....



    2.  Where is Channel 9?  You know how recently a few people left that used to promote C9 - well they are gone - so let's find out How to Find Channel 9:
     
    first - go to msdn.microsoft.com

    then:



    ....and then  /  or then ( if you missed it)  Click " Community" link



    ..and you can "talk" to channel 9?

    well the doctor is in - and ummm it's you  Smiley

    Please fix all this and i look forward to the universal clipboard

    edit:



    "...So if you could just go ahead and do that... hmmm ya..ok..."

    edit: ps ray:  I know you cant fix every item thrown your way by users across the globe - but wouldnt it be fun to a) fix the worlds copy/paste/mis-spellings?  and b) throw the c9 brand dude out big on msdn?

    Dear Ray Ozzie,

    Please remove Activation and Genuine advantage from all Microsoft products as it causes more harm for legitimate users than for pirates. Also consider lowering prices of Windows and Office and I garantee you that sales will go sky high.

    Sincerely,
    ZippyV

    Does that mean you won't be uploading those awesome apps to the sandbox after all? Color me shocked.

    You along with the regular group of loyal posters (Jamie, Manip, W3bbo, Cybermagellan, and a couple others) have done wonders this past week with this site.
     
    Not.

    Without alternate opinions on this board, this site sort of tanks.  Routinely. This past week has been a great example of completely flat discussions. Although, I do have to say your devotion to this place is rather scary.

    Is that your long-winded way of saying "no" ?

    This is a PR site.
    People talk to other people here because they have something in common.

    That was my point. Why exactly are you here? It's not like Microsoft gives a rip about you. When you bring up difficult topics like whether this is a PR site or not, the people who run this site dodge the questions or run and hide.

    So much for conversations.

    Why the heck would anybody want to talk to their friends on a PR site all day long?


    Odd - that wasnt my point.

    If spending all your time here is pointless, isnt spending all your time here telling people not to spend all there time here the kind of monsterous meta-pointlessness that destroys minds?

    I'm just trying to figure out why you'd want to talk on a site that was founded on what amounts to be a lie. Most people don't do that.


    True. Less people sped time on those sites telling people not to be on those sites though.

    I'm doing it as a public service.

    I'm not charging you for it either!


    And, we're getting what we paid for it.


    Please bugger off.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    FYI, I love C9 because without it I'd never have been able to ramp up so quickly over the past year.  Such a great way of meeting people who care about their work.

    Jamie/rjdohnert - I'd like to blog more frequently, but time management is a big issue for me - particularly in this new role.  It's a great medium...
