Building software is nothing like construction
[Crosspost from Managed World] I was reading an article (blog post, really) from Jim Shore today that got me thinking. In the past, I've kind of boughten into the whole idea of "building the foundation first". Because of this, I wasn't really agreeing with him on all points in this article. However, there is a certain quote at the end of the article that not only got me on board, but served as a swift metaphorical kick up the side of my noggin' (Thanks Jim :D). Without further ado, here's a quick ......

Google Transit
[Crosspost from Managed World] Yup, yet another ridiculous ploy to take over the world by Google (when will we see Transit Live, Microsoft? (::end scarcasm::)). All I have to say is: COOL!!!! (and how convenient, the first release covers just the Portland, Oregon area which I happen to be from; Coincedence? I THINK NOT!). ......

Heart Transplant
[Crosspost from Managed World] Well, it finally happened. After much noise and dismay for several months, the DVD drive in my XBox finally gave way. Luckily I had an extra XBox downstairs so I was able to transplant the working DVD drive into my main XBox. I guess this means that my extra XBox though is simply a box for transplant parts from now on. Oh well, at least my XBox is up and running again. Of course, by transplanting the DVD drive I did totally bust up the warranty (if it was even under ......
