  • This is a cool show. I can't believe I've never heard of it before, this being the 57th ep.

    I have to agree with Paul in that I have a hard time finding productive uses for Twitter, but there can be knowledge in the crowd. Services like downrightnow.com that use algorithms and hash tags on twitter to find out when email or social networking services are down are pretty cool. Other then that Twitter is mostly an Internet Vice not virtue  Tongue Out


    Keep up the great work!

    Well.. looks like you have just figured out a great thing to do this weekend! Wink

    ... it should only take about 14 hours to watch every episode.  If you want to do it in one session, I'll even provide the Mountain Dew!

    Here's a quick guide i made for you - how to pronounce MEIR:



    Thanks for mentioning SQL Server.




  • so

    RC=Release Candidate

    RTM=Release to Manufacture

    VS=Visual Studio Smiley


    what is R2 ?

  • Again, great show. I enjoy getting the news, the latest stuff (always with links Wink ) like IE9. Just keep it up!


    I'll keep watching Ping! Also the "But Why" show is realy cool. Good job here and there!

  • R2 = "Release 2" and tends to imply a minor version release

  • Here is a suggestion: have the show in a bar bring more drinks to the show.
