Windows 7 Release Candidate
Microsoft has reached a critical milestone in the Windows 7 development cycle with the limited release of the Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) today for Microsoft TechNet and MSDN subscribers and general availability from the Microsoft Download Center on May 5th.

Microsoft Fix it Solution for Disappearing System Tray Icons on Windows Vista
About two years ago I talked about a very common problem in Windows Vista where the network, volume, and power icons in the system tray disappear.

Florida Technical Communities (April 2009 Update)
Florida has a very active developer community. The biggest problem we seem to have is that all of these different groups usually don't know about each and there hasn't been a "centralized clearinghouse" listing all of the technical communities. Joe Healy, one of our Florida Microsoft Developer Evangelists, maintains a list and one-page flyers for each of the main areas in Florida. I think the eventual plan is that Joe will be updating his site to take advantage of the newer version of Live Maps and ......
