    LittleGuru!!! Right on! Two weeks, two Niners. Man, I like this pattern.

  • BasBas It finds lightbulbs.
    Wow. I wish I knew about the not having to uninstall Visual Studio Express thing before doing the uninstall Visual Studio Express thing.
  • Lloyd HumphreysLloyd_Humph If Blackberrys are addictive cellphones, Channel9 is the ultimate addictive website.
    I now know why Chris never became a singer Smiley

    I'll definately be checking out the customizer thing, I would love it if VS emulated the way Blend looks! Rat brained robots is a little weird.

    I read this thing about Unit 371 (I think - a Japanese experiment similar to the Názi experiments) where they kept a dogs head alive.. this reminded me of that, I suppose it's sortof in reverse Smiley

    Awesome show, as usual. First time I've been able to comment though! Smiley For some reason it wouldn't work before :\
  • Mark Wisecarverwisemx Live it
    Cool stuff guys. Big Smile
  • Christian Liensbergerlittleguru <3 Seattle
    Oh dear lord... he even put the video in (where we sing). My accent is getting better - hah!

    It was really awesome to be part of the show. I hope I can join another time again Smiley
  • Gotta love the 9'ers in 9 videos! Smiley
  • Dan FernandezDan
     I would love it if VS emulated the way Blend looks

    I couldn't agree more, my personal wish is that they unite the WPF designer teams so that VS gets all the niceties of Expression Blend rather than having to jump from one product to another to get things like IntelliSense and statement completion versus better designers, better resource support, etc
  • Go Microsoft !!!!!!!Dovella Go Microsoft !!!!!!!
    Go Christian Go!!!! Wink
  • haha, Christian's accent is very funny Smiley nice video, rock on!
  • actually I like how it looks now, there are so many things that needs to be fixed, how it looks is the last of them... there is place for improvements of course, but just copying Blend who has an awful UI is just plain crazy, improve performance, there is not time for play, I would say...
  • Christian Liensbergerlittleguru <3 Seattle
    It's my own unique accent Big Smile It took me forever to mix it together Tongue Out
  • MinhMinh WOOH!  WOOH!
    So, that's what littleguru looks like when he's not wearing a dress Smiley
  • Vesuviusvesuvius Count Orlock
    He speaks Italian, English, German fluently and some other Italian regional dialects, you?
  • William Staceystaceyw Before C# there was darkness...
    The Wow starts now!  Think the wow campaign should have been saved for SP1.

    fx 3.5 sp1 and VSsp1 are amazing so far.  Astoria, new web services, Entity framework, designers, Dynamic Data, sql 2008 support, and the list goes on.  I remember watching these things grow on C9 over the years, but having them all come together in this SP release is just amazing to see and finally have.  Now I just need another 6 months to learn all this stuff...  Great job MS and congrats!
  • William Staceystaceyw Before C# there was darkness...
    How is it VS does not show the MindScape Explorer as an installed Add-in?

    You finally took my advice not to place your laptop on your lap I see Wink
  • Barry Andrew HallPace What do you see?
    Cool video guys, interesting content as always.

    On the singing... I wouldnt give up the day job just yet Big Smile
  • Christian Liensbergerlittleguru <3 Seattle

    Maaaaaan... you destroy my dreams!!!

    @Maddus: we needed a way that both of us could read the slides. But it seems really to look good to the viewer.

  • i've been saying that for awhile the laptops detract from the video but like how it looks on the table.
  • Dan FernandezDan
    Yeah the laptop on the table works pretty well, it gives us an easy way to move back and forth between content on a decent-size display, hopefully w/o being too distracting
