Are we all phony?

In response to an article by Scott Hanselman, I must say I completely agree that I too am a phony. You should take the time and read it here.

Management Awakening

It has been sometime since I tried the blogging route and felt it was time for a new awakening. The topics will be within the realm of IT, but as I have taken on a management role in recent months I plan to focus on leadership and growth.

Don't worry, there will be plenty of opportunities for Star Wars, technology, and my other passion of music.

Let's see where this goes!

What happened in to the posts?

Since I am moving my blog back to Blogger, I will be adding posts from my now defunct blog here, but setting the published date to its original. Not sure how that will affect feed readers, guess we will see.

Blog Is Moving!!! - Or Not

*** UPDATE! ***

Consider my blog "unmoved" as of now. I have been silent the past year due to offline family busyness, but it is time to attend TechEd 2008!

I have taken down my domain for now, so my posting will be back on Blogger for the time being.

------------------------------------------------------

Well, I am extremely excited to announce that I am moving this blog off of Blogger to my own hosted site.

This innovation came about with the awesome open-source .Net blog implementation named dasBlog. Seeing as my main profession is .Net coding I felt it was important to host my blog on a code base I can modify and extend without a problem. To that end, stay tuned for my future posts on dasBlog mods I have implemented.

The new blog is located at http://www.geekwithin.net/ and has a new RSS feed associated with it, just check the side bar.

While I was able to write some code to transfer my Blogger posts to the new system, I am still working on moving comments from Haloscan. We'll see if that works.

See you at the new site!

Search Engine Fairness

Wow. I had thought that Google was big enough that it had no fear of Microsoft, but apparently I was wrong. According to the Reg Developer Google has complained to European Union watch dogs stating that it is unfair that the new search dialog in IE7 hits MSN. There main assertion is that it is difficult to change, while Microsoft has an equal share of documents showing how easy it is to change.

Why is this an issue for Google? I don't understand what they have to fear seeing as EVERYONE uses their site for searching. Have to watch to see how this plays out.

Microsoft Goodwill

In an article at the Reg Developer (Microsoft extends Visual Studio handout program) Gavin Clarke reports that Microsoft has decided that the express versions of both Visual Studio 2005 and SQL 2005 will not cost anything. Initially, the plan was to offer them for free to get people interested and then to start charging for them.

To me, this is a good thing and will help generate more interest in Microsoft's programming languages. There is a steep price to pay to get legitimate copies of Visual Studio and many who may wish to give it ago don't have access to it via a corporate job. As more people give it a try they will find out how good Microsoft .NET technologies are.

Personally, I plan to get a copy for my ten year old son and his friend. This summer I am starting him on the path to programming/networking/hardware excellence. He doesn't have a sports interest, but his ability with computers has impressed me... I can't wait to see how he does.
