|My Blog Has Moved||
Unfortunately, I don't have control over the guts of my blog here so I can't setup any nice redirects or anything like that, but if you're still interested in following things I'm working on and sharing, head over to my new blog. If you're interested in the blogging platform our team has been working on (in our spare time) that's built on ASP.NET MVC called Oxite, be sure to head over to my new blog (running Oxite).

Bill Gates is leaving and Charles from Channel 9 has a great interview with Bill.
Bill Gates: Transitioning into the Future
|Life at Microsoft||
I had the pleasure of "acting" with some fellow 'softies to create this fun video about the misconceptions that people have with Microsoft.
It was a lot of fun to run around with nerf guns, kick people, yell and scream. Tina, can we do it again? :)
|ASP.NET AJAX BUG: $addHandler Can't Attach to Element Inside an IFrame in Internet Explorer||
I have an iframe on my page and an html page that's loaded in it (from the same domain) and an anchor tag is clicked in the iframe I want to execute some code on my page on the client. In the Initialize method in my client object I call $addHandler and pass in the anchor tag from inside the iframe, 'click' (to attach to the onclick of the anchor tag) and my delegate. I run the code in Firefox. Everything works great. I go to Internet Explorer and run it and when I click on the anchor tag inside of the iframe I get an error of "Sys.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null. Parameter name: eventObject". A quick search turned up this gem of a workaround:
I hope the ASP.NET team fixes this in future versions of ASP.NET AJAX, but for now this will work.
|CES: Bill Gates Leaving Microsoft Video||
This is a great video that was shown at CES
Bill's Last Day: The CES Keynote video
It's official now. See you there?!?!
Accompanying Channel 9 thread discussing it.
|IE 8 Exists||
Ok, we all knew it existed and was being worked on, but this is the first time the IE team has talked about anything (even if there's no actual info here).
Accompanying Channel 9 thread discussing the "announcement".
|Yahoo Messenger for Windows Vista (using WPF) Preview Released||
Just installed it and while it's not feature complete yet and there are some performance issues, overall I really like it!
It kind of makes the Windows Live Messenger team look a little stupid for letting their competition use our technology to make a better looking IM client, doesn't it? ;)
Definitely check it out!
|Facebook Beacon Now Lets You Completely Opt-Out||
This is great to see.
Nothing better in this world than a company who admits mistakes, listens to customers and makes changes when needed.
Ever wanted something more powerful than just a "Share on Facebook" link on your site, but didn't want to write an entire Facebook app? Enter Facebook Beacon. With it, you can add a few lines of code to your site and your users can share actions they did on your site like (bought a product/service, changed their profile, posted a comment, etc) to Facebook so it shows up in their news feed and then travels down the viral highway that is Facebook.
We're considering integrating Beacon into our community web platform that runs (Channel 9, Channel 10, MIX Online, Channel 8 and TechNet Edge). Do you think this would get annoying? Would you like to share what you're doing on our sites with your friends on Facebook?
FYI, we're building a Facebook app as well for our sites (and all sites involved in Microsoft Communities), but we think this also adds value too. Thoughts?
|.NET Web Roadmap for 3.5 (ASP.NET, Silverlight, IIS 7)||
Scott Guthrie posted some fantastic info on ASP.NET Extensions 3.5 to match up with Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5.
Great stuff...check it out!
|Rich Text Editor on CodePlex||
This is really great to see. RTEs are a pain to write yourself.
My only requests are that they add Opera and Safari support, XHTML support, undo and better flexibility for customizing it (like hiding the view tabs and ASP.NET Themes).
Definitely worth checking out!
