I was wondering... As of now, .Net 4.5 requires Windows Server 2008 or better. The contract I am on right now has mostly 2003 servers (woo hoo, lucky me.) Will this new "take only what you need" .Net be able to run on these 2003 servers? Is there a specific reference that makes it not work on 2003?

Sorry for my ignorance... You guys are great, but I was wondering where Laura went? It's been boys without Foy's for 10 episodes now. I went back and watches 192 and nothing was mentioned except for Erb in the comments saying congratulations. What did I miss? Aside from Laura.
Keep up the good work boys.

OMG - Not shocking about the Tabs vs Spaces at all. I blame Microsoft for some it since the default is spaces (fail.) IMHO, spaces are crap. If we use tabs, everyone wins. What I mean by that is I prefer a 2 character width tab (the default is 4 but if you get too many loops or ifs and such, I hate scrolling horizontally when I code.) An example would be I have a class open and I put a tab in, write some code on that line and check the code in. Then you have tabs setup for 4 characters and you open it, the code looks as if it were typed by you. Awesome!
Now let's say you are one of those ... Mort's out there that thinks spaces is the way to go. And even if you are, what if you like 4 spaces and someone else likes 3 or 2 or 5. Nothing lines up anymore. That is WHY Tabs will ALWAYS rule over spaces.
PLEASE MICROSOFT, IN THE NEXT RELEASE OF VISUAL STUDIO (EVEN UPDATE 2 SINCE IT IS STILL IN CTP) AND FROM THEN ON, MAKE IT TABS BY DEFAULT. HELL, YOU ARE HITTING THE TAB KEY - NOT THE 4 SPACES KEY. ;)
Side note, I believe Open braces on same line. Save space!!!

Woo hoo Laura! I too started on a Commedore 128. That was what started my programmer career!
And I am from Michigan, but I guess that is better suited for Paul.
Still wanting to play some of the Halo ODST with you guys - perhaps before Halo 4 comes out?

Hey L & P,
Good show. Laura, love your hair - but loved it longer!! Gigity.
Yes, PLEASE do the Halo Reach tournament. I signed up back when you said to. Man, good thing I did not hold my breath.
Ever in Cleveland, look me up, great breweries and plenty of whatnot!

I love you guys, but how can you have a video that I can download that even states the "non-beta" tools are available and yet it still shows the Beta from 2 months ago?
C'mon, gimme gimme gimme!

Hey, another great show. Speaking of the Bill Gates/Digital Universe... I downloaded it and all looks good. I can fly around and such. But what I was hoping for is the same .wf file/path that was used on your Ping video. Would love to see that. I have always wanted the opening scene of Contact as a screen saver. This may be the closest I get.
Really, no one can help. C'mon! I'll buy you a beer?
Beer comment is 100% true if you live in Cleveland.
