Going Away For A While
The culmination of the events from the past few weeks (months actually) have lead to some unwanted side effects, and I've decided that now is a good time to...well, take some time off and unplug for a bit. Unplugging as in literally pulling the plug from my machine and heading off into some well... Read More...

Heading Down To Dallas
A couple of the CS MVPs ( Rich and Rick as of now) are going to be in Dallas (that's the location of Telligent HQ for anyone not in the know) towards the end of September (22nd-25th); if I can find a ticket for the right price I will be heading down as well. If any other CS enthusiasts in the area are... Read More...

I'm Either The Last One To The Party...
Or no one has thought about this yet: The more I've pondered this piece of news the more convinced I am that it's a fake request. Too many things just don't add up (and at the risk of making a fool out of myself I will not list them here...I have listed them on another popular news site and if it does... Read More...

Scam Update -- It's Never Going To End
Just a quick (interim) update before I post another in depth piece about "Da Scam" (as I'm affectionately calling it now).

Microsoft Invites Firefox Development Team To Redmond
Via Ars Technica ( full post here ): Microsoft wants to help aid in the development of Firefox. It sounds pretty scary, doesn't it? If you're still here, let me tell you that it's not as bad as it seems. Sam Ramjii, Director of Microsoft's Open Source Software Lab, has extended an invitation to the Firefox... Read More...

Use Generics To Improve Performance
Via Keyvan Nayyeri ( full post here ): Generics were of one of main new features in .NET 2.0 languages. In .NET 1.x developers had to use System.Collections strongly typed collections to save their objects but no type checking were occurred for them. Therefore they had to do a type casting when they...

CS Tidbits #21: Exploring The CS Spam Blocker
Blog spam...it's the new (well, not so new) scourge of the internet. On my site alone I get several hundred attempts a day from spammers wanting to leave their garbage on my blog. Fortunately Community Server ships with a built-in spam blocking tool; unfortunately it's not very well documented and can... Read More...

CS Tidbits #20: Add Basic Stats To Your Blog
I pulled a Ken in that I wrote a basic BlogStats control quite a while back and simply forgot about it, and it actually fits perfectly into my current series of CS Tidbits. So I busted it out of Vault and cleaned it up a bit and added it to my current (soon to be published) CS Custom Controls project... Read More...

Calling All Geeks Named Scott
While I was setting up my mirrored content section and adding blogs, I counted no less than 5 blogs belonging to a Scott (and I'm not even done adding content yet). I guess Scott is to geeks as Jason is to American males in the 25-35 year old age range ( read my Sidenote here ). So calling all Scott... Read More...
