    Guys what's with the four minutes of blackness at the end? I was totally waiting for a hidden bonus clip of Brian being set on fire or something, but nothing happened. Tongue Out

    Hey, I didn't mention TWOCN in the "what do you want to know?" thread because TWOCN is already perfect. Even NBC wouldn't cancel TWOCN!

    LOL, must have been an editing issue, our apologies on that one. I really did want to shoot Brian with Fireworks under the guise of patriotism though.

    In ASP.NET and the HTML editor in Visual Studio, you can select a chunk of code, right click, and format the selection so that it formats the HTML in a nice way .i.e  your <div> tags are in line, and all the other tags as well. You also have the option to set custom formatting for your HTML. I wish this option was available in Visual Studio for XAML, in fact, I've never mentioned it because I thought it was going to be added automatically because it is  such a useful feature, but it has not.

    I remember in my Amiga days, the good eld lha which most of the public domain software was compressed with.

    At the end, the last 3:30 minutes is dead air, very unusual.

    I didn't recognize lha, until I searched for it and saw LHA. It's funny how the mind works.

    TWOC9 is getting completely boring and feels far far too corporate. Why can't you guys just do this in your offices, pull random devs from these teams and have a quick uncensored recap of the week with them. Kin's death was only a side mention? Seriously this show is just dying under the public relation overloads.

    We've been doing the same formula for two years now, what changed recently? TWC9 is a developer show so we primarily focus on developer topics, while the P!NG show covers more general (primarily non-developer) news about Microsoft. On the topic of Kin, I don't think we ever covered Kin's "birth" (b/c it doesn't have a developer platform) so I don't see why we'd cover it's death.
