      Happy anniversary guys! Smiley

      Little info for you regarding the Silverlight football streaming. Here in Poland one of our soccer team made their entire website with Silverlight. The team is Lech Poznan, you can visit their website here: . It was one of the first biggest SL implementations in Poland and was launched over a year and a half ago. Mayby it lacks some cool newer features but it's good to SL in such places and evolve all the time Smiley

      Makes me wonder how many of us have cable?  I only do because the other half likes the Food Network.  If only we had good OTA HD in Calgary.


      Nice song, it's difficult to make 1-3 second files less irritating.  The 120 day trial you're talking about is actually called "rearm".  It's the process of extending/refreshing the time before activiation is required by the OS; usually giving a 30 day extension to the Activation Window of a Windows Client (nice pun Smiley).

      Apple hardware literally feels better than any PC manufacture out there. Many Microsofties know this, as they use it themselves and just use bootcamp.


      Being cheap is not always a good thing. Is it cool to buy a Ford Focus vs a BMW M3? No. Is the quality going to be the same ( probably not).


      Netbooks are a pain to use. They are under powered, if you want to do any remote spreadsheeting on it, it is nearly impossible to do effectively, and the keyboard are too small for most.


      I hope netbooks just die.

      People probably still think I am crazy, but I have a strong belief that netbooks will backfire....

      I created an account here just to let you know that this is my favorite show (maybe I don't get out much).  But seriously, I look forward to your shows.


      It would be great if the show could be longer.

      Users have welcomed the new NFL Silverlight player with very positive feedback. During last night's game Twitter was flooded with messages from viewers. Bizzarely, some American football fans, including the editor of Macworld magazine, sounded more excited about the new Silverlight player than they were about the game.
