    One year already. Wohohohooooo... Time really flies! How was the Asti and the cake?
  • Greg Duncangduncan411 It's amazing what a professional photographer can do...
    Congrats guys! Thanks for the great shows this year (and the shout-outs)... I'm looking forward to to this year's as I'm sure it's going to be an "interesting" year... Wink

  • Congrats Channel 9! Thanks for all the great shows.
  • CharlesCharles Welcome Change
    Wow. One year?!?! Amazing. Keep on keeping on gentleman.
  • That's amazing how the time is flying.
  • BasBas It finds lightbulbs.
    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...
  • webmonkeywebmonkey How am i supposed to code with theeeeeese ?

    Congrats all, I really enjoy TWOC9!

    Now where do I send my postcard to get cake? Smiley

  • Herbie SmithDr Herbie Not dead yet.
    You didn't recognise the dog robot?  Call yourselves geeks?  It's K-9, of course it won!

    Anyway, happy first anniversary. Smiley

  • Dan FernandezDan

    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
  • Dan FernandezDan
    Yes, just mail a postcard to

    Channel 9
    1 Microsoft Way
    Redmond, WA 98053

    and we'll mail you a foam Channel 9 guy Smiley

  • Scott,

    You are my personal hero with your "murse".
  • Great show, it was pure fun and a big congrats on 1year B-day!  

  • 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.
