      Awesome show.  I didn't know you could do half of those things with Publisher.  You guys need to edit these videos and get some TV ad space!


      p.s. Laura, I miss your energy on Ping!

      Watching these two beautifull women is so much better then watching Dan and Brian Smiley

      Great show Laura and Tina, Publisher is one of those apps that I've always wanted to fiddle with, but never had the time, so it was great seeing a recap of what's possible Smiley


      Maddus - I think you must be confused, Brian and I are clearly the most beautiful two people on Channel 9. Okay, maybe not Brian, that J# thing really aged him and he never fully recovered. In fact, he still thinks J# is alive and well. I don't have the heart to tell him it's dead, so every product cycle I take a box of triscuit crackers, tape a J# logo to it and hand it to him telling him the new version of J# is now available! He carries it around like a mother carries a newborn for about a week, it's disturbing, but at least I have something to snack on with all the triscuit boxes in his office.

      Don't get too down on F# Dan! We actually shipped some stuff recently (yes last week recently) that included J# binaries because we needed a ZIP implmentation and didn't want to step into the murky world of 3rd party 'open source' implementations.

      @chrisauld: dude, I know you are a real guy not a spammer, but that signature is as big as your post and has people marking your comments as spam... you should tone it down Smiley
