  • Internet Explorer 7: The Browser. The Team. The Tour. Part 1

    Hey, using IE7 for the first time, and let me tell you, I love the view where you can see more than one tab on the same screen. However, is there a way to zoom in? Right now I can see 3 accross. I'd like to zoom, so that I see 2 across but the panels where the pages are are a little bigger.
  • Scoble: Exit Stage Left

    Nice interview, but the sounds was very quiet.
  • New Role for Bill in July 2008

    Bill has always been a coder. He was smart in that he got good business people to work with, because that wasn't what he wanted to deal with. If you noticed, he would still try to be in touch with some of the technical things. He's always loved the software and technology.

    As for Ballmer, somebody give that guy a decaf! Smiley
  • Episode 3

    I thought it was very good. Gave me some info that I will watch for in my code. It's too easy to have a script-kiddie coder come in and right a quick web site for a cheap price. One of the first things I was told when I started asking questions was 'Parameterized Queries'!!!

    I think when it comes to demos for code, string queries SHOULD BE BANNED. I've seen to many demos where they drop in a SQL string, tie it to an adapter and some controls... and there's the page. I know they are trying to demo how the controls work, but I think security should be part of every demo, even if it's not mentioned. Don't show SQL strings in code, show your demos using parameters.

  • Kenneth Spector - Coding without seeing the screen

    Back in the late 90s, I knew a fella who was blind and ran/owned and ISP. He was the first in the area, and ran on Linux/Unix, which was all text based.

    It's good to see people overcoming seeming adversities. To us, it's a big deal. To them, it's everyday life.
  • Bill Hill - Do you think anyone is going to read a book on the screen?

    I have a link on my page about Sony/Phillips/eInk's new ebook reader.

    I've always wanted a 4x5 screen size PDA. It would be nice to have more words on a screen at a time. I read Crime and Punishment on my Sony Clie, Hitchhiker's guide to the universe... and some others. Before it died. Now I'm Pda less.
  • Chris Sells -- Tour of MSDN

    Definetly a new office Chris. Thanks for the tour.
  • Chris Sells - Is it really true that you're working on a Longhorn version of Solitaire?

    Will you also look at spider solitaire? And could there be a Mahjong included in Windows?

    Also... could their be a simple IDE like we used to have qBasic?
