I have been taking time off to get some perspective. I havent yet started my Indigo digging yet. I was at the Software Architect Forum last week and when someone asked me what Indigo was, I told them it might be a color. I have been thinking if i am doing justice to the heading that I have on this blog. But i know the time will come. I will be able to write about my experiments with Indigo... I made full use of the long weekend to get to a beautiful place called Muthodi. No electricity, no heat, ...

eBay decided to keep Half.com open. So what was all that hassle for? Thousands of sellers spent days to figure out how to transfer their inventory and listings to other sites including eBay. Then they dedice to keep Half.com open, this is a very immature move by eBay management. Here's an article about Half.com; eBay will keep Half.com subsidiary open SAN JOSE, Calif. -- EBay Inc. announced Thursday that it will keep its Half.com subsidiary open indefinitely, scrapping previous plans to shutter the ...

Wow, I work in a place where the machines crash at random, I am doing VB6 and classic ASP development on a Celeron 900 with 128 MB ram. The machine crashes at random 4 to 8 times a week, the network / exchange server is down so much, (without exaggeration) the internet / network is unavailable 10 to 15 hours a week, and my emails have an average delivery rate (coming and going) of about 50%. I actually purchased, out of my own pocket, without reimbursement, a new laptop to develop on, I figure the ...
Through Chris Pratley's blog I learn about the price change of Microsoft OneNote and that it is now $ US 99 across the countries. OK what I think about this? Ofcourse it is a good news. Price drops for software is allways a good news for the consumers I guess. But when I come to think about this, I was wondering that how people in asian countries like India, Pakistan, Sri-Lanka. If I caculate, than $99 would be 4600 Indian Rupees. Indian economy is going up, but do people from India and sorrounding ...
As I stated in an earlier post, I have been working on the EDR to get a fuse curve plotting program working. Between that and real life travel, illness, and work around the house, June was a very thin blogging month. Now that all that is past, I can work on other things, such as this blog. One of the interesting tools I used to get the EDR plotting requirement done is a program called DPlot. While the program itself is worthy of consideration, it has a free sibling called DPlot Jr. For the programmer, ...
It took a bit of extra time, but I have completed my EDR programming mission. Now back to the regularly scheduled blog. My previous effort at simulating Navy life was mostly oriented towards the enlisted experience. Today I got a reasonable simulation of the different jobs that officers hold onboard U.S. Navy ships. Now this is oriented towards Surface Warfare Officers, but you'll get the idea. All you have to do to become a Surface Warfare Officer is complete the at-home training curriculum in the ...

Good Bye San Diego I am packing to leave sunny (yes-at last) Southern California. As I pack, I remember that I had an action item from the Women In Technlogoy Luncheon.

So ladies and gentleman, if you're interested in submitting , please send Esther articles: esther@bitranch.com Wrap-up I spent yesterday ...
It's not my story, but one that both Kimberly and Steve told me on seperate occasions. Last year, Kim was flying to TechEd Europe on a non-direct flight to Barcelona. She relates that the passenger next to her started to chit chat before the flight took off and they both learned they were going to Barcelona. Then the discovered they were both going to TechEd to speak. That's when they finally introduced each other and Steve learned that he was sitting next to the top rated speaker from TechEd 2003 ...

Tech•Ed 2004 is just 17 days away! I am really looking forward to this year’s event. There’s so many new things happening. I am going to spend the next few days highlighting speakers, tracks, sessions, cabanas, parties, as well as giving a little historical perspective to the event. This marks my sixth TechEd and I’ve just gone through all the historical data to see where we’ve been and where we are going. (I am the technical content owner for the event this year). One ...

Now that SOA is taking the world by storm, this is the time to define the format that will be used to exchange data in this new architecture ruled by messages. Welcome to the world of SODA. SODA stands for Service Oriented Data Access and it has been conceived to provide a mechanism to represent data in a simpler and more powerful way than other formats like XML. Let's take a look at some basic samples for a better understanding:Employee { Name = "John Doe"; Age = 35; Hired = 05/10/2003; Salary = ...
