      Nice show, aggain!

      Congratz to the one that won Scrabble (I wasn't so sure when I saw the end lol).

      However, the IE9 looks great. But what about the unused space on the top of the window where the window title is supposed to be? I think you could shrink the window a bit more by using the space there. It could be a bit faster (Chrome still feels faster at loading pages =/), but its a good step, and I think you will regain lots of Firefox users on this release.

      Btw, are you still planning to do a behind the scenes show? Big Smile

      Good job!

      Loved loved loved the competition spirit between you two. Scrabble game was cool, antough the board seemed to get more empty sometimes Tongue Out

      Any chance the Imagine Cup can get an entry in next weeks show? I've got a post up about what to do to join. There must be some students watching the show right?

      Where is the love for Windows Phone 7 Tools that were released last week?  That's some big news.  Maybe you can have someone from the Expression Blend Team on to talk about new features.

      Hmm, not convinced with the new website yet. For one it doesn't work in my Chrome browser (is this intentional?). Also its all a bit boring, clean and boxy for my liking. But thats just my opinion. I'm sure its all wonderful HTML, CSS and jQuery or whatever but essentially as a user I only care what it looks like. Maybe I'll get used to it. I only come here to watch PING anyhow. Big Smile
