    The Discussion

    • CKurt

      Who won the scrabbel game?


      @Paul: It's the Windows Phone MarketPlace Tongue Out

    • Laura10

      Paul chickened out. I would destroy him.

    • Adam​Speight2008

      I don't think it did that kind of ads, you must the parental filter turned off Paul.

    • PaulMest

      Don't listen to Laura's blasphemy.  I could beat her left-handed.

    • CKurt

      We demand a game of scrabble in the next show Tongue Out

    • SheldonS

      O.K.  How does one obtain one of those little 9 guys?  Many years ago I obtained a SQL Server Girl from attending several online events.  Sadly I cannot find an image at the moment, but the design is simular to the 9 guy.

    • SkyHoshi

      hotmail started in 95, who has the oldest hotmail address ? I still use mine and I made mine in 98, April.

    • PaulMest

      Good question, Shahedk!  I will look into this... but I had received a memo that had this line in it...

      • "This is not just for fun, its serious business; students can not only deploy WP7 apps on Marketplace for free, but earn some extra cash off of it."

      ... perhaps some marketing person went overboard... stay tuned.

    • rhm

      The tools for WP7 are free for all anyway so they wouldn't be covered by the Dreamspark licence I'd have though.

    • Laura10

      It's true:


      1. Students can build and deploy apps to Windows Phone Marketplace for free through DreamSpark (US and other selected areas)
    • Meir

      Finally! Some SQL Server news!

      PASS is a great event. I will not be able to participate this year although i won a free ticket...


      Paul - throw us a bone here, which session were you talking about?


    • rhm

      Apple stole the name of your show. You should sue!

    • gbrayut

      Ha! Channel 9 Ping beats Apple Ping any day in my book. And why do they have it built into the iTunes application instead of a browser? Most people I know love iPods but hate the iTunes app. Besides, Zune has had something like this for a few years. I guess Apple wants to try to control your social network too Tongue Out

    • Laura10

      And Max thought Ping was a stupid name! hrmph~

    • cbae

      Hey, Laura! Did you hear about the new social network that Apple announced? Not a very original name, huh?


      BTW, I love your show--the original Ping. I watch it on my Zune HD every week. Keep up the good work!


      Edit: I guess you already did. I just read the posts before mine. LOL
