Codestock: Session submitted
On recommendation from a buddy, I have submitted a session for Codestock. I've never been to it, but I've heard great things about it. I sure hope mine gets selected. I am thinking I'd like to do a session on using Windows Powershell as a testing platform for web-based applications. It's a much overlooked part of your Windows 7 install. I have built a few very lightweight test harnesses out of it, and I like it a lot. If you structure it right, it becomes far more manageable than you'd think, encourages ......

Independent Developer Sued By Cequint update

I checked back at the blog written by the poor guy being sued and he's removed many of the detail surrounding being sued. It is a rather to the point, bland and not confrontational post at this point. No way of knowing, of course, but I suspect he was threatend and edited his post to make him clam up.

That's a damn shame. :-(

Windows 7 and Powershell: No access to set Execution Policy
I am a powershell user. I use it in testing apps, mostly to either actually work with IE (automated testing) or to configure environments for testing (this can save tons of time and is very repeatable). Powershell is incredibly handy. I was nodding my head very excitedly when I heard Windows 7 would ship with it standard on some versions. “Perfect!” thought I. I got my Windows 7 and installed it at work (I actually paid for this) b/c it seems to me that XP 64 isn't supported very well and Windows ......

Independent Developer Sued by Cequint
My boss pointed me to a blogpost relating how an independent developer is being sued by Cequint: He had the audacity to write an appplication for free that Cequint wants to charge a monthly fee to provide. I pretend to be a master of (or novice for that matter) Patent law, but this seems to be a little ridonkulous. He's trying to find support to contact a lawyer to prevent him from being sued into oblivion. ......

Office 2007 Plain Text Issue
We had something odd happen in our office the other day. We finally installed Office 2007. Most of us had no issues at all. However, one of our co-workers installed it on her machine and then applied the patches/service packs as recommended. Initially, her Outlook would crash every time she tried to use it, so she fully installed and then reinstalled….which took care of the crashing but.... Every time she got a text email, it was blank. She could highlight the text in the email, then copy/paste it ......

Bioshock 2: Great game, but why?
I love the Bioshock series (guess it's a series now that there are two of them), I really do. I've completed them both, and am tempted to start the first one over and do through them to get the other ending (won't tell you which one I got the first time). After I'd completed the second one, I began to analyze why I like them so much. Is it the first-person shooter? Nah, I like FPS but that's not really a big deal. They made some updates to the game play for Bioshock 2 (some pretty cool ones, too), ......
