Via GameSpot ( full article here ): The good news is that Valve is in the final stages of prepping Half-Life 2: Aftermath, the first expansion for Half-Life 2, due out later this year. Valve likes to describe Aftermath as a new "episode" for the franchise, and we know that it picks up immediately after... Read More...

Code Formatting for Community Server 1.1 -- Posting From BlogJet
Now let’s see if it picks up the [code] tag from BlogJet; if so this will make me very happy: /// <summary> /// Clean up any resources being used. /// </summary> protected override void Dispose( bool disposing ) { if ( disposing ) { if (components ! = null ) { components.Dispose(); } } base...

IBM Laying Off 13,000 in US; Hiring 14,000 in India

Change is in the Air

Strongly Typed Datasets and XML
I’ve posted numerous times before about my feelings on Xml parsing (and not just as it relates to .Net, but Xml in general), so I won’t rehash my feelings on the subject here except for one sentence: I love Xml, but I abhor querying/parsing/handling it. It’s great in principle, but in practice there... Read More...
