Vongo Back on 64-bit

Vongo has published an update to it's client software that works on 64-bit Vista again.  Apparently, this was a hot topic based on the number of views and comments I got on my post Vongo is a Mess.

You can get the updated software from Vongo's home page.

Do You Use a Web Component Suite?

We're considering purchasing a component suite for web development to spice up our interface and make the UI side if things a little faster.

My question is, have any of you used any of these suites and what was your experience?

The ones we are looking at are telerik, ComponentArt and ComponentOne.

TargetProcess 2.6
If you are using agile development at all, you need to check out TargetProcess. I have used several different tools for project management and this is the one I keep coming back too. Yes, even you FogCreek lovers should check it out. Version 2.6 is dropping and it includes Visual SourceSafe integration and a new customizable dashboard. Version 2.7 should be out sometime around January and I've been told it will have some new features centered around messaging and blogging. A feature that disappeared ......

Code Snippet Manager Missing

By default the Code Snippet Manager in Visual Studio 2005 should appear directly under the Tools menu.

This is the second install I have noticed that it wasn't there.  Not sure what the combination is that is keeping it from being there by default, but if this happens to you restoring it is simple.

  1. Go to Tools -> Customize
  2. Select the Commands tab
  3. Select Tools
  4. Drag the Code Snippets Manager.. from Command up to the Tools menu.

Linspire + Microsoft = Love
Is Linspire getting desperate? They just struck a deal with Microsoft to license code for Windows Live Messenger, Windows Media, and TrueType fonts. Okay, that seems like a good thing. But they agreed to make Live Search the default on their Linux based OS! Linspire has always billed itself as the super easy Linux distro for everyone. I guess they are going to find out if they can make in the mainstream market, because I just think they alienated a lot of Linux geeks, assuming they had some left. ......

Windows Live x64 Update - Microsoft Support
Hello Scott, Thank you for writing to Windows Live Beta Technical Support. My name is Tom and I will be addressing your concerns with installing Windows Live Writer on a 64 Bit System.

As stated in the release notes we are not supporting any 64-bit installations for this beta release, but this has always been in our plans for the final release. ......

Michael Robertson vs Microsoft - Take 2
Michael Robertson will not give up his fight against Microsoft. Remember back when he took on Windows by creating a more "Windows friendly" version of Linux called Lindows, got sued, and changed the name to Linspire? Well, now he is taking them on with an entirely web based OS. And I guess there must be a really attractive lawyer on the Microsoft team he is just dying to see again, because he is calling it ajaxWindows. Microsoft must be his ultimate target. This is from Michael's Minute announcement: ......

New Windows Live Installer Doesn't Work on Vista x64
I just rebuilt one of my machines to run the 64 bit version of Windows Vista. When I tried to install Live Writer I needed to use the new single installer package released last week. Well, it doesn't work on x64. I sent an e-mail to Microsoft, and they said a lot of people have reported the problem and they are working on it. They gave me a work around but it just launched the same installer with different options, so it crapped out too. The odd thing is, all the individual packages should work on ......
