TodayIStartedTheGwbWiki.... Oops! Today I started the GWB Wiki several of you asked about a few weeks ago. This wiki is almost straight out of the box so we can work with it to find what direction you guys would like to take it. I plan to add some help pages on getting started with GeeksWithBlogs and some history of the site, but you guys can go where you want with it. http://wiki.geekswithblogs.... ......

Miguel Rocked The House in Kansas City...
...and the evals are there to prove it. About 90% of the attendees gave him all 5s and there were several comments like "best user group presenter I have seen". This isn't good for me since I have spoken several times for the UG, but Miguel is a very polished presenter and he knows how to relate the materials he has produced to all types in the audience. The presentation covered Server Controls and even with 4 people in the audience of 40 raising their hands when Miguel asked the question of who ......

The call you hate to get...
Saturday 8:30PM CST - This past week I was in Vegas with a client demoing some products we have been working on and the show went great. Saturday night the show wrapped up and we were planning a night of fun with some gambling. I cracked open my first beer sitting is a very nice suite at the Wynn and my phone started ringing. I noticed it was my wife so I thought it was our normal evening call we have when I am out of town. I answered and I could immediately tell from the sound of her voice something ......

MaxiVista, I think I was late to the game, but this is amazing!
I am in love! I downloaded the MaxiVista trial today because I am onsite at a client with 2 notebooks, but only the monitors attached to the machines. I needed more space! MaxiVista is a product that allows you to extend your desktop without an extra monitor attached to the machine, but another computer with a monitor. This means if your have two laptops, you can make one of them a slave monitor to the other, giving you dual monitors. Amazingly the lag is almost not noticeable since it uses the network ......

My Latest Purchases to Continue the Geekdom of Jeff
Now that the game contest judging and discussion has died down, I can announce my latest purchases to continue the Geekdom of Jeff: Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 Toshiba P105-S6084 These two purchases are amazing. Dual Core!!!! I have wanted one so bad since they announced it and with 2gb out of the box for $1,349 at Best Buy, how the hell do you turn the offer down? As far as the keyboard goes, I have bad habits. I know carpal tunnel is coming if I continue typing the way I do. Also, I have a ......

Contest Controversy
This is from the anonymous "El Stevo" via my blog post about the game contest results. Er, I don't get it. Is this some kind of joke? Bob The Fish is just bad. I don't care what the code is like, the finished product is very very amateurish. It's just a collection of poorly made clones of old games that have been done (better) a million times before. How on earth could you say it had great gameplay? I've only played one other of the entries, but it was far superior to Bob. If I were one of the other ......

Congratulation George Clingerman for winning the Geekswithblogs Game Design Contest
Congratulations is in order for George Clingerman who produced Bob The Fish and ultimately winning the Game Design Contest. George's game had great game play and the code is of very high quality. Congrats George and your XBox will be sent out shortly. However, this was the hardest contest I have ever judged. John and I split the judging up into different categories we were both having a tough time picking a winner. These games are awesome! Aside from George, John and I want to ......

Visiting Clinton, Missouri after Building Collapse
Over the 4th, we visited my parents in Clinton, Missouri where last week a building collapsed in the city's business district. This is my hometown and I have spent a bunch of time on the square. Seeing the buildings like this and knowing someone who was close to the family died during the collapse is very sad. The whole area is blocked off around the building and surrounding few. Here are some photos I took from my camera phone of the damage ......
