DCMonkey DCMonkey What?!?
  • The History of Microsoft - 1977


    I didn't know they had widescreens back then.
  • Ping: Episode 1

    Is this a Channel 10 video that got posted here by mistake?
  • Windows 7: Find and Organize Part 1 - The User Experience

    The point I was trying to make is that WMP12 will use WDS and its associated metadata writing features instead of its own homwgrown library/metadata system. Therefore the problem you are having specifically with WMP not writing metadata to files may go away.

    And they probably won't bother fixing code in the current WMP that's going to go away in WMP12.

  • Windows 7: Find and Organize Part 1 - The User Experience

    I was under the impression that WMP's library is being tossed in favor of using what is basically Windows Desktop Search with libraries being a way to organize specific sets of search locations instead of having to search for media files across all search locations.
  • Windows 7: Find and Organize Part 1 - The User Experience

    Can you create your own libraries in addition to adding locations to the existing ones?
  • The Channel 9 beta has been updated...

    I'm not sure about this async/AJAX forum loading thing. I imagine performance will get better when the new c9 is moved to the "real servers", but then I go over to on10 (where they've only got 2 pages of posts), which already appears to have async forum loading, and I find the experience excruciatingly slow compared to today's Coffeehouse (at least most days). And even with better performance, I think seeing that progress animation makes it feel slower than it really is, especially when coming to the forum page 1 from elsewhere.

    Edit: Of course it doesn't help that the new forum page appears to be about 100KB not even counting the actual forum topic data, whereas the current c9 home page is about 35KB

  • FeedSync: Synchronizing the Mesh

    Understanding that they aren't in this tech preview release, are the features like Remote Differential Compression and
    the torrent style blob transfer planned for the actual v1 release?

    It's on there if you have patience.

    Edit: Never mind, it's not there.  Just related Mesh talk from the "This Week" video.

    The links in the story itself are correct though.

    Interesting stuff.

    Um, it's playing a "This Week" video.
  • Ori Amiga: Programming the Mesh

    I'm intrigued by this app provisioning thing. The example in the video appears to be some kind of client side HTML/JS/Silverlight app akin to an HTA or Vista Sidebar Gadget. What other types of apps will be supported? XBAP? ClickOnce? Standard MSIs or setup.exes?

    How do you launch the apps? Will there be Start Menu integration or will they be listed within some Live Mesh specific location (or do we just sync the shorcuts/favorites)?
