    great episode Smiley im so going to adopt that deviner title Tongue Out

    i totally bump the natal discussion! api info, driver info, any info.. i soooo want to program against this thing Smiley the interfaces you could create with natal hand recognition (including individual fingers, confirmed in various natal interviews) are just mind blowing.. just something like a 3d modelling/viewing app where you can rotate the view with your hand...

    the kramer quote was exelent as well Wink

    You didn't know he was a loser?   The Florida Gators shirt should've tipped you off a lot sooner!   Geaux Tigers.

    Ha! Honestly I do root for the Tigers any time they aren't playing my Gators. And our own VP, S. Somasegar, is a Tiger. As is my buddy Chris Treadaway.

    logging is not tracing... ever...

    Logging is monitoring events  that occur and write them into a protocol file also called a log file.
    Tracing is looking at the protocol in the log file and THEN figuring out a chain of related events that lead to a significant event. Significant because you looked for it and it's cause in the first place, not it having to be a bad thing.

    That TweetCraft plug at the end was so unnecessary. Smiley

    Agree, it's important to call out the distinction between logging and tracing given how many people use them interchangeably, although even Brian caught himself calling the output of a trace file a Trace log, which is correct but probably confusing Smiley

    Yep it's all in fun.   Good to see the Gator's shirt on Channel 9.

    Very nice episode. However, Dan's comment about windows 95 was really messed up.
