    Happy Birthday Charles.

    It sounds like you are sitting an empty warehouse.

    I'm waiting for Scott Gu to release the Zimmer Framework.


  • Great content, you guys do give me hobby projects for the weekend.  Charles, you don't look a day over 21, all the grey is added in post-production.  Happy Birthday, don't have too much fun this weekend, it takes longer to recover with each passing birthday Wink

  • Bent Rasmussenexoteric stuck in a loop, for a while

    Happy birthday Charles + LOL, that was hillarious. Big Smile


    With that helmet you're set to go on a bender with the amazing drinktendr.


    The price for funniest sentence of the show goes to Dan for "I know I suck, and certainly a lot of people do".

  • Herbie SmithDr Herbie Not dead yet.

    Happy Birthday Charles. Not a day over 25 years old, obviously.


    I once read a 4 page article in New Scientist about theories of faster-than-light travel through worm-holes.  It was heavy going, but I kept at it.  The last paragraph pointed out that none of this was possible in this universe, but perhaps could be possible in some other universe where the laws of physics were different.  I felt cheated.  

    So thanks for pointing out the article, Charles.  Perhaps my 20 minutes of reading weren't a complete waste of time is it could be possible in some other part of this universe.   All we have to do is figure out which part and then get there Smiley

    And Prof Hawkins might have to accept that time travel is possible -- we just haven't seen the time-travellers because they're too far away!




  • ChadkChadk excuse me - do you has a flavor?

    Good episode, and happy birthday Charles Smiley


    I'm guessing 34.

  • ZippyVZippyV Fired Up

    I'm guessing 40: midlife crisis just started, bought expensive helmet. All that's missing now is a motorcycle.

  • Dave Williamsondavewill here birdie birdie, get in my belly!

    Great still pic for this video.  I'm not sure what is funnier, Dan's internal uncontrollable laughter or the 9 Guy in the background getting ready to eat Charle's helmet.


    Happy Birthday fellow old man.

    Are you guys for real about Azue? You seem to think that if people have any website that requires more than one server they are automatically going to target Azure unless they have some special hardware requirements?! Using Azure is the exception, not the rule. Compared to renting a bunch of dedicated servers for any number of hosting companies, Azure is: too expensive; yet another bunch of APIs to learn; locked into being hosted by MS; time-consuming to set up for applications where RDPing in and xcopying a website over is all you need.


    Btw. I think Charles is 46.

  • Dan FernandezDan

    Sure, it depends on the application, we didn't mean to imply that all web sites should be on Azure, and perhaps we should have said something explicitly, but the conversation was really a comparison of a self-hosted set of servers (I'd assume 5-10) running a Web Farm or Azure. When you're talking that level of scale, Azure is cheaper. There are some architecture concerns to consider, and it's usually a good idea to abstract out API/platform logic (data access, Diagnostics, etc) such that moving from SQL Server to Oracle/MySQL/etc only involves implementing a data layer.



  • CharlesCharles Welcome Change

    46?! Ouch. Yellow card! Smiley


  • CharlesCharles Welcome Change

    Thanks, all. Appreciate the BDay wishes. It was fun to co-host This Week.


  • ChadkChadk excuse me - do you has a flavor?

    You should do it more often. I realize you don't like being in front of the camera very much, but you're really cool in front of the camera, just as you're excellent behind the camera Smiley

  • Christopher Harrisfinches Safety first!

    Charles rocks man. He does such a great job on ch9.

  • Allan LindqvistaL_ Kinect ftw

    hold on a minute, rx ships with winphone7?

    does it also ship for regular .net and silverlight?


  • Dan FernandezDan

    Just a quick note that Vittorio alerted us to the Twitter link saying that it was for Twitter and Facebook, but there are different tutorials for those so I've added the Facebook links and links to part 2 for both sets of articles as well.

  • There's some problem with Zune ver download of the video, the download size for Zune ver is just ~ 32MB and video cuts after playing few min. Please check. Thanks.

  • I'm probably a little late, but nm.

    Happy Birthday Charles, keep up the good work.

    I'm loving the C++ stuff with Stephen.

    Dans quite cool as well.


  • Andrew Richardswindev Andrew Richards

    Good to see my school (Swinburne Uni. of Tech) in the news.  Smiley 


  • Adam SpeightAdam​Speight2008 The Bandito Coder

    Happy &H23th birthday Charles.

  • CharlesCharles Welcome Change

    That's more like it! Smiley


    Given the physics stuff in this episode. I might as well come clean... What is the meaning of life and everything in the universe? Hint: the answer is an integer. That's my age. Hard to believe...


  • Time for another Dr. Brian Beckman interview about the laws of physics being different in different parts of the Universe.


    I think Charles is 39.

  • Adam SpeightAdam​Speight2008 The Bandito Coder


    Start about 4minutes in.

  • CharlesCharles Welcome Change

    He's on the radar for sure!

  • Bent Rasmussenexoteric stuck in a loop, for a while

    Surely Charles is not the natural number 39!


    It is probable that he is 42 years old though Wink

  • OK, fine. The Zune ver of download seems to corrected.  Its now ~168MB. Downloading ............   Thanks !
