    Woohoo, one year! I think TWOC9 is a really great addition, I'd have missed out on so much stuff if I didn't have this weekly rundown. Congratulations guys.

    That alien monkey-man robot is absolutely terrifying. He posted some youtube videos, but just the preview images alone are horrific. Tweezers in eyeballs, scalps pulled back to reveal gruesome servos and controllers embedded, metal wire wrapped around exposed fangs.. gruesome.

    Always good to see Scott on the show, by the way. Is there any chance Hanselminutes on 9 will be resurrected? I mean, I know Rory isn't there anymore, but...

    You didn't recognise the dog robot?  Call yourselves geeks?  It's K-9, of course it won!

    Anyway, happy first anniversary. Smiley

    Good call, NONE of us got that reference and that's exactly what it is. I still think the scary animatronic monkey is cooler than K-9 and was robbed of first place.

    Congrats !!!! I really like this show.
    Nice to know Scott does not take alcoholic drinks.

    Is the small channel 9 guy models that you used to keep on table over ? I wanted one. Can I send the snail mail to get one?

    Happy anniversary.

    I think I must have watched every single one when I get into work Monday morning since you started.

    BTW K-9 Rules!

    A piece of British history

    It even had it's own TV Series!

    Admittedly, it didn't last long Wink


    P.s. bring back the out-takes at the end Wink

    I tested the RAM disk idea, and it doesn't help. I used the RAM disk for two weeks and I ram extensive performance tests. I posted the results of my tests on my blog. Conclusion: RAM disk doesn't speed up Visual Studio. I think that because of Visual Studio and Vista caching, there is no really benefit of manually copying files to a RAM disk.
