    Looks like he's practicing being a hologram (reflecting off of the laptop).

    I finally got a new laptop though Smiley

    Specs here in case anyone is interested. I am digging it and as Erik pointed out, it's quite shiny Smiley

    Way to go! What happened to your old notebook, now that you have the new one?

    Sadly, I'm expecting webslices to fail horribly simply because nobody is going to implement them. I mean, look at ebay. Why do you have to go to a special search page? Why didn't they just render all auction pages with web slices? If the number one example that's always given for webslices doesn't even feature them by default, what's that going to say for the rest of the web?

    I don't know. The popularity of this feature relies on broad implementation, and so far, I'm not seeing any indications of that happening.

    This guy, Dan, is very irritating. This interrups the presentation. Now, it's more or less a mad-man-show, with one word: "cool". That's not informative, sorry.

    I have to give it back as it's actually a loaner given that my Dell 1330 was...unsound. A team normally keeps an extra laptop so if someone's laptop dies, they can have use the loaner.

    Good points, IE8 certainly has lots of work ahead for them. My biggest wish would be to be able to have a great extensibility model using managed code and built-in support in Visual Studio for building/debugging addins.

    LOL, 

    more or less a mad-man-show
    This is our goal Smiley

    Brian and I interrupt each other is because one of us knows a story deeper than another,

    ...with one word: "cool". That's not informative
    Hmm, not quite, on Popfly I gave my personal view and pain on using custom audio, I explained how the data structures and algorithms book is a bit different in that it covers pseudocode, or how massive the changes were to NGen for SP1, all in the first nine minutes.

    That's pretty much my biggest wish too, yeah. I'd love to make a bunch of IE add-ons, but I'm sure as hell not going to mess with COM and registry hacks. This is 2008. Give me a safe, managed Visual Studio project template and a beautiful .NET class hierarchy that allows me to add toolbars, mess with the views, access the DOM in each page in each tab, et cetera. Then life will be beautiful.

    So go read the news instead. This is a lighthearted look at the current events, and comes across well.
