New Month - New Books
Well the book club isn't going off as planned, but I will keep trying. This idea is definitely hard to complete, because it is asking a lot out of the members. Even though reading books is part of our profession, it is hard to get developers to read. It is too much of a chore for most of us. How can we change that? What would make a group like this better? I hear a lot of people complaining about time. I have no time, blah blah blah. I don't know how many people I have seen from the lab portion of ......

Imagine Cup - What happened in MidAmerica
Jason Beres and Andrew Flick have been discussing their feeling on the Imagine Cup and I agree with everything they are saying. I would like to say that I agree from personal experience, but I didn't have the luxury of judging at a competition. The Kansas City area had 3 competitions canceled because of lack of contestants. Yeah thats right, not enough student interested in winning $25,000. Crazy! I think it is the lack of .NET course ware in the area though, because .NET to most schools in this ......

ESS (Event Share Specification) 0.91 is on it's way!
Formerly ESF, ESS is getting a face lift.  I cleaned up the elements to follow standards better and added recurrence rules based on iCalendar (RFC 2445).  I am waiting on final approval from the group before launching, but watch this blog or for an update!

Pitfalls of Previews
In the article by Mark Fussell named What's New in System.Xml for Visual Studio 2005 and the .NET Framework 2.0 Release, he shows us tons of new features coming into System.Xml. Well in my excitement, I figured public article released a week prior to the public preview, this stuff is in there. Wrong! About 75% of this articles content (which is great) is not available in the bits we have today. This makes it real hard on me because I am preparing a presentation for DevEssentials in June about the ......

Imagine Cup - Round One competition is dying down
Thanks for all the professionals who came through this year assisting with the Microsoft Imagine Cup Competitions. If you could do us a favor at INETA Academic, by writing up a few paragraphs about your experiences with the students, organization, and whatever else you experienced so we can forward your thoughts to Microsoft Academic for future competitions. This would help us and them out tremendously. This year was our first attempt to reach out with help, and we hope to have more time and organization ......

INETA Academic Recruit - Andrew Flick
One of my roles in the community is Co-Leader of INETA Academic. This week I had several pleasures to meet Andrew Flick, from Bradley University. Jason Beres and I saw much potential in this young man (well one year younger than me) and are welcoming him to INETA Academic as our student liaison. His job will be very instrumental with the communication with INETA to the students and their groups. We all have many hopes for him, but I wanted to let you all in on the new addition. Watch out for this ......

Delayed an hour
New .NET Community project idea. I would like to design an airport scheduling system (ASS) that would tracking the maintenance of an airplane and the flight plan to see what city will need a plane ready to go when an aircraft needs maintenance, ahead of time. I am guessing this procedure is pretty calculable and could lower delay times dramatically. If you were waiting for me at the airport, sorry, but I am guessing with the brain power in Redmond this week, we could prevent this from happening again. ......

TechEd 2004
As much as I really wish I could go, I can't! I will be on my honeymoon (in Hawaii) during the week of. I tried to talk Michelle into postponing the wedding for a week and having an INETA BOF session for my wedding, but I just got laughed at. To mimic what others did during PDC, I created my on “I'll be there.” graphic. I hope everyone has a good time without me. ......

Building Custom Modules for DNN 2.0
The past couple nights I have been working on some custom modules for the book club site. Well tonight I successfully build one! It will rotate the current books and display them with a like to purchase with the discount. Pretty cool! Kind of a pain in the ass to do because of the lack of 2.0 custom module documentation. The best resource to have was the samples and Reflector. Now I have to finish the admin screens and a few more modules before release. It will probably be a little later before I ......
