VB.NET Rocks!
Goodbye to the C# to VB.NET converters! Kudos to Chris Williams on creating a site where VB.NET coders can find the code in VB.NET (not C#). If you've ever found code snippets in C# and had to translate them to VB.NET for your application, now is the time to share! The more we all share, the quicker the VB.NET resources grow.

Lest we forget Visual Studio 2003....
This week I had to make some changes to an application written in Visual Studio 2003 (It's a Microsoft Content Management Server application, but that is irrelevant to the memories). After digging through multiple user controls I found the one that needed a change. The change was simple, remove a control. Two seconds ... right? WRONG... 2 hours later... I could not figure out why deleting a control caused the layout of the page to explode and text to journey into new locations on the page. Here are ......

Microsoft has made it a little easier by offering Second Chance exams through the end of the year (you can register here). I just love studying for exams during the holidays.

Thank a Veteran
Today is Veterans Day and I think Wikipedia states it nicely. It is so much more than a day off from work or a big sale weekend. Veterans Day is largely intended to thank veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to United States national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served - not only those who died - have sacrificed and done their duty (copied from Wikipedia) Take a minute and find a veteran and thank them for their contribution. ......
