Just finished reading the book Joel on Software: And on Diverse and Occasionally Related Matters That Will Prove of Interest to Software Developers, Designers, and Managers, and to Those Who, Whether by Good Fortune or Ill Luck, Work with Them in Some Capacity. This is the dead tree version  of select articles from Joel Spolsky's Joel on Software (definitely easier to read than online, and I positively do like dogearing my books). Needless to say that I highly recommend it.

The next book is already in the mail: Paper Prototyping by Carolyn Snyder. Like I said, one down, n to go.

Not strictly a developer-centric topic, ConferenceXP once again caught my attention. ConferenceXP is an MSR initiative for exploring how to make wireless classrooms, collaboration, and distance learning a compelling, rich experience by assuming the availability of emerging and enabling technologies, such as high-bandwidth wireless devices, Tablet PCs, and the advanced features in Microsoft® Windows® XP.

Now why do I bring this up here? If you are managing a virtual team (#develop) that is distributed around the globe, a scenario supported by the ConferenceXP Client 3.0 Beta is for example whiteboarding combined with realtime-chat. How cool is that? Check the release notes to see what else it might be able to do for your team!

Tune in to the flight deck communication and learn about how we achieve our primary target of creating an integrated development environment for .NET!

This now is my third blog - ok, in reality it is two when I count the #develop team blog and German .NET community blog as shared.

If you still have Active Server Pages (ASP) or Windows Scripting Host (WSH) scripts running on your Web server, then go get the Windows Script 5.6 update for Windows Server 2003 or 2000/XP respectively.

Finally got the upgrade to 2GB of memory for my developer workstation. If you had told me ten years ago that I'd have more main memory today than I had harddisk space back then, well... hey, we didn't have to test VS.NET Team System back then!

On a more or less regular basis I screen the results that pop up when I google for my name. This brings back memories of the bad old times of IIS:

Microsoft Active Server Pages IIS server hole (7/20/1997)

::$DATA IIS ISAPI filter (7/2/1998, fix site pulled)

Reminds me of my favorite - writing ISAPI filters in C++. However, as those two incidents have proven: even C++ can be put to good use <g />.
