First Developer Book Club Webcast
Well it's announcement time. We are in the process of partnering with to form the Developer Book Club, formerly known as .NET Book Club. With this name change comes a reformation of the club itself.

Dell Inspiron 8600 Issues
First off, I want to start this post with an 'Arrrggggggg!!!!!!'. Much better. I have an Inspiron 8600 from Dell. The machine is awesome, I have never had a laptop that ran so fast.

Wow, bad timing on MSDN TV
In this episode of MSDN TV Mark Fussell, former Lead Program Manager of the WebData XML Team, talks about XML features of Visual Studio 2005. Inside of which he talks about the XPathDocument being editable and XQuery support and we know that is not going to happen. The show is basically based on his article that needs to be updated, but that is doubtful since everyone on the WebData XML Team either left or has went back into an unknown hole to not be found.
