      Laura, Paul, and Max,

      Awesome show, I enjoyed the random singing and Bing ring-tones.  I'm going to set those as my new mail noise and see how long before someone threatens my life Smiley

      Paul, nice glasses, you must be recovering from the 4th of July weekend.  Dig the shades, they add a bit of, "je ne sais quoi".

      I would be really cool to use Silverlight on the XBOX, not sure if I'd start to play games, but I'd love to take some of those simple silverlight games and play them on my TV, then was done by Tess Fernandez link and it would be neat to play that in HD!

      The Windows 7 videos are not as dry as the Apple videos, however, the Apple videos are short (less than 60 seconds), and accomplish one thing, say, create a new mail contact.  At least you guys don't call yourselves geniuses.  I've been to an Apple store; they are knowledgeable, but far from geniuses.

      Again (positive reinforcement) kepp up to good work.  Max, check your inbox Smiley

      @Edit: To anyone who may be wondering, I did recieve an email from Max, thanks buddy for your help, I'm now shopping for components, seeing if I can beat my original budget Smiley

      Could someone care to explain to me why I can watch and download these videos in Opera, but not in Internet Explorer? I mean, usually it is the other way around... especially on a microsoft site Perplexed Not good...

      The link I get for this particular video is http://mschnlnine.vo.llnwd.net/d1/ch9/7/3/0/7/7/4/Ping19_2MB_ch9.wmv and all I get when I try to open it in IE is an ugly Internet Explorer cannot display this website. In Opera the link works fine.

      Okay that ringtone is going to be driving someone nuts Big Smile

      I suggest merging it with the Crank ringtone

      Crank 2 - a new level of absurdity

      Haha... yeah, I was in "Vegas mode" and wearing them as a joke... then we started filming and I didn't think I should take them off for the different segments. 

      ...I do like the look, though! Wink

      Wondering if the "Supersecret project" Paul is working on might have something to do with the announcement next week.

      Can I have a high resolution copy of the 'vomiting' ad? I think it's funny. Apparently, someone pulled it from YouTube.

      I liked this Ping, but I think Paul should do a segment on SQL Server performance tuning. That would rock!

       

      Snoogans!
