    I highly recommend the following 3 books that have helped me start thinking again by delivering the proverbial "head wack" just when I needed it:

    p.s. Thanks to Bob Walsh for recommending these books to me!

  • Got MicroISV application? Want Zune? Read on...

    Greetings from the Microsoft Project code-name "Glidepath" team!

    We have updated the Project Glidepath site (www.projectglidepath.net) to feature the Windows Vista Spotlight, a list of MicroISV applications that run with the Windows Vista operating system.

    If you are a MicroISV and have an application that successfully installs, runs and uninstalls on Windows Vista please go to the site, click on the link on the right and submit your application for consideration in the Spotlight.  When your application passes our basic functionality tests we will put you in the spotlight and blog about your success!

    And...If you are one of the first 30 MicroISVs to submit and pass our testing we will send you a Zune! (see site for full rules and submission guidelines).

    Excellent, thanks for the info Michael (now that I know your name).

    To add to that, if between now and Monday at 23:59:59 PDT; should I have a new version of my entry... would I need to have you nuke my entire original entry thread, or can I simply edit my original post and while there upload the new version?

    I believe you can just edit your post but if you have trouble just upload a second entry and let me know and I'll delete the first one.

    Say Ultra, as the latest ‘Softie to post here and one who seems to have some knowledge with regards to the rules and what not... what would be your ruling on this (or you are not the person to ask, who would be)? Are entrants able to edit their entries after they have already been submitted, just so long as all editing occurs prior to the close of the contest entry time?

    As the "contestmaster", I am happy to assist if you have trouble "replacing" your entry.  If you need to have a previous entry deleted, just let me know.  The purpose of the "rule" is, of course, to prevent someone from entering multiple times.

    You are certainly welcome to download the tools and submitted applications.  We just can't award you the prize.
