Firefox 1.5 Released Into the Wild
As has been posted forwards, backwards, and all over the web, Firefox 1.5 has been released to the general public (notice there is also a new website for Firefox and Thunderbird).

Click the Red Tab, Click the Blue Tab
This is my favorite Firefox extension du jour . The author says he lifted the idea from OneNote …that being said, I’d love to see Microsoft incorporate this idea into other applications that use tabs (Visual Studio?)…after just a couple hours of using it and I’m hooked on the concept; we are visually...

Looking for Some Definitive SQLCMD.EXE Resources
Does anyone know of a good hard core SQLCMD (not the ADO.Net object, the OSQL replacement that ships with SQL Server 2005) reference? The SQL Books Online documentation for this new tool is terrible, and Google isn’t turning up much more than basic primers. I’m looking for a hard core top... Read More...

Looking for a Flash Guru
I have a small project I’m spearheading with a local fashion design company and am in need of a Flash (or Shockwave) developer for a concept we’re working on. The premise is simple enough: We need to create an eBrochure that will get mailed out on CD/DVD to an existing mailing list (it will... Read More...

Office 12 Beta 1 -- First Impressions
That’s right, I have Office 12 Beta 1 (it’s not too hard to find out in the wild, ping me if you want details as to where to get it). The upgrade from Office 2003 went smoothly enough, and so far I haven’t run into any issues besides Outlook using upwards of 400 megabytes of memory... Read More...

Has Microsoft screwed up with VS 2005, or is it a perception problem? (Via ISerializable)
Has Microsoft screwed up with VS 2005, or is it a perception problem? Some thoughts.

Bring on the Tryptophan

Upgrade to Firefox 1.5 RC3? I Recommend Waiting...
I gave the new Firefox 1.5 RC3 release a test drive over the weekend…it was one of the shortest test drives in history though and lasted long enough for me to find the Firefox 1.0.7 download to revert to the previous version (which worked flawlessly amazingly enough…try doing that with...
