    Quick note on the VSIX comment that I made for having to manually install the code snippets for ASP.NET MVC. Quan To, from the extensibility team, corrected me in that while the VSI format (from VS 2005/2008) allowed you to package code snippets to easily share/install them, VSIX does not include this feature. They do plan to support it in Dev 11 though, it just got cut in terms of features for Dev 10.

    Its realy amazing that we can make avatar games with XNA.

    This is my first XNA 3.1 avatar game protype.

    It's neat that more and more of this stuff gets added to XNA. The only drawback I see is that now we'll have more games with those annoyingly happy avatars. Stop smiling and pointing your finger up in the air already!

    Thanks for the link for my PoshBing library guys.  You commented on the lack of usages for such a library.  While I agree, translating a string from a PowerShell console session is probably not the best use case, but using it as a conduit for other PowerShell related projects is viable.  As an example, I wrote a Twitter bot in PowerShell that uses my PoshTweet PowerShell Twitter library along with my PoshBing project.  This all runs in a console on my desktop but with it anyone can Twitter @askbing with a question and it will use PoshBing to query the Bing APIs for the relevant answer.  Here's a post on the project along with details:

    Thanks again for the post, I really like your show.
