I'd Rather Be Coding Jay Glynn thinking out loud. May 2004 Entries
Back from San Diego....
We finally made it back home after 12 hours of airports and airplanes. What should have only taken about 5 or 6 hours was whacked by something in Dallas, that's all I know. Anyway I won't waste time talking about how many t-shirts I got (a few) or how many famous people I talked to (several) or how many great parties I went to (a couple) or how many drunk drummers I saw (none). Who really cares about that anyway. What I will be posting about over the next several days is what I learned, especially ......

Off to San Diego
Getting ready to head to the airport for a fun day of mass transit. For all of those that are going to be at TechEd, I will be at the Meet the Author thing on Tuesday, 5:00 to 6:15.This is in the Deveopler Tools and Technologies Cabana Lounge (wherever that is).

TabletPC in the news...
There has been a lot of traffic lately on the death of or the success of the TabletPC (depending on who you ask). I don't think that TabletPC has been as successful as Microsoft and the hardware vendors would like. I think there are two basic reasons for this, one can be fixed immediately and one will take a little longer. First the long term problem, cost. A TabletPC will be nore expensive then a comparable standard laptop. The main reason is the display and digitizer. The technology is still growing. ......

View on Application Architecture
Ralf has put up a couple of posts here and here regarding app architecture that everyone should read. His ideas are very similiar to the ideas that we have been implementing ourselves (are you reading this Donnie). One point that I don't particularly agree with is the we should have been using COM+ more. I feel that COM+ is a useful benefit in a relatively small percentage of systems. When you need it you'll know, but it would never be the first thing I look at for a system design. I also believe ......

Microsoft and XP (eXtreme Programming)
Roy Osherove had a comment asking when we might see more XP related content from Microsoft? My answer to that would be hopefully never. In his post, Roy ponders how the XP process would work on projects as large and vast as what Microsoft produces. Is he really serious? Can something like Word be developed using XP? I can't possibly see how. The other question he asks is will we see Microsoft showing us how to do XP in Enterprise level applications. Microsoft has not been able to properly show us ......

3DES and XP sp2
I posted before that we getting ready to roll out 7000 new tabletpcs leter this year. One of the tasks that I have bee assigned is device security. This include authentication, authorization and encryption. I have been learning all there is about these subjects lately. One thing that I discovered recently is that if you enable 3DES encryption on a TabletPC running XPSP2, you can no longer log into Passport! After enabling 3DES on my Toshiba I was no longer able to check Hotmail. Every time I would ......
