A unified theory of software evolution Lehman: They say, "But you haven't told us anything we didn't already know." To that I say, there's nothing to be ashamed of in coming up with the obvious, especially when nobody else is coming up with it.

At least I might have solved the laptop problem. It has built in wireless and a switch to turn it off. I turned it off for the first time when I was on the plane. Turning it off didn't disable XP's wireless network connection. I think the freeze happens when the wireless driver tried to talk to the hardware. Disabling the wireless connection seems to have fixed it.

I am in panic mode. I was out sick three days last week. My TechEd demos are but vague ideas referenced obliquely by slides I turned in couple of weeks ago. I am desperate to get the 3.0 release of the STK out the door, but some people keep changing their minds about how DIME and WSDL should work AND I have not gotten the samples finished up. I have to demo some of that changing DIME functionality on Thrusday as part of one of my preseentations too. Now every few minutes my laptop seems to freeze for about 10 seconds.

Many weeks ago I scheduled myself to fly into New Orleans on Sunday so I could do a little sight seeing. This is one of my favorite cities. I'm spending the day in my hotel room writing specs and demo code. Oh well, it is stormy* out anyway.

*How would you make a link  to this moment of weather?

Who attends TechEd? vs the PDC? vs something like DevCon or PC Forum?

Clearly TechEd is Microsoft kool-aid for the masses. Not that that is a bad thing. Those masses are my core customers. I actually like to talk to them. After all, the ideas for the best products come directly from the customer. Right?
