My hearts desire... - [2:55 PM]

Tiggers are wonderful things!Professionally speaking, that is.

I'd love to quit my day job and write a Ruby implementation for the CLR. Reading "The Life" makes me want to do it even more.

Sigh... Back to the day job. Smile, life is good!

Free Windows? - [2:00 PM]

I, Cringely: "All this wheeling and dealing is actually good for consumers. We're about to see two waves of technical change over the next three to four years that will completely change the landscape of computing. Microsoft will spend whatever it takes to retain control, which could mean ANYTHING. Seriously, ANYTHING. Windows for free? Don't be surprised if it happens." - The article starts off by talking about Windows Live, Office Live, and the relationships that are forming between Google and Sun on the Open Office front. It'll be interesting to see how this stuff really plays out. The idea of giving away Windows is a wild one, don't you think? I'm sorry to say I don't believe it could, or would, ever happen. You can't make money giving things like an OS away.

Potter Buzz - [10:46 AM]

Time: "Daniel Radcliffe was 11 when he was cast as the boy wizard. Now he's 16. He and his co-stars have gone from kids to teenagers in front of millions. What's it like to be raised in J.K. Rowling's world?" - Of course the buzz will become deafening as November 18th approaches.

Mini on VS 2k5 - [10:34 AM]

Links the kitty!Mini-Microsoft: "Internally, it would be good to figure someway to dogfood VS 2005 at a greater rate. Most developers, who find the choice, draw the line at Rascal." - I found it strange when Visio became a part of the Office family that the Office team didn't use Visual Studio as their full-time IDE. We, the Visio team, certainly did.

I wonder if the Visio team is still using it?

UPDATE: Here's the first post from Mini on VS 2k5.
