I know it is not the same thing as saying "Silverlight is dead" or "Switch to node.js and HTML5, everyone" but it is good to hear. Java looks dead on the desktop, Flash is now exporting to HTML5 and IE9 will bring a lot of once future web-tech to the present.
Now if only Apple would let us distribute HTML apps via its App Store...
They are a weird company. They make these huge leaps, drag the industry kicking and screaming with them and then they stand around while everyone else is still moving forward. I get that they want user experience to be crystal clear before they embrace something but considering webOS is a lot of HTML apps I'd say the user experience side is there enough to embrace it. PhoneGap and co. aren't what I'm after.
Mate, you were born in 1970. Now my maths is a bit rusty having left school 24 years ago, but I still get 40 even when I use a piece of paper and a pencil.

So, I've done some C++ this week. The most interesting thing I've found is that Weven keeps trying to stop the C++ compiler on a basic application, because it thinks it's not responding. How awesome is that ?
Driven to the arms of OSX by Vista.
Read my blog to find out how I've worked around bugs in Microsoft tools and frameworks.
Yes it happens; I have the same configuration on my workstation. But it’s just for a split second before the build starts and one would never notice it if not looking at the VS status bar at this second. I eventually noticed it after a year working with VS 2008/C++ so not really a problem here. I thought the reason is that our application is a few million rows of code, but obviously it’s not the case.

I seem to remember that either you or someone else posted in the lounge (quite a while ago) that their application was being stopped by W7 as it was supposedly stuck, but it was in fact busy, and that the easiset way to fix it was to change some number in the registry that told Windows how long to wait before reporting it as crashed

You need to install 3 to 5 hotfixes after installing SP1 to have a working vs2008 on Windows 7. I think after it crashes and you sumbit the problems (not sure I did that) windows 7 actually tells you what hotfixes are needed.
So, we've been using Ndepend[^] for a year now. It's not often that I make product recommendations, but I really do have to recommend this to those of you who write .NET code. We've used this, in conjunction with dotTrace, to produce code that runs more efficiently, and is easier to maintain. Version 3 is even better because it integrates directly into Visual Studio.
I have CDO, it's OCD with the letters in the right order; just as they ruddy well should be
I'm evaluating CppDepend for a government project. Their tech support is nothing short of phenomenal. There was a feature missing (possibly a bug) and they added it for me to continue with my testing in less than an hour.
This is a really funny little clip[^] with Kevin Smith. I'm not a hug fan of him, but I was looking up some stuff for a superman, and came across a snippet that mentioned him as a screenwriter for a Superman movie back in 1997. The movie never got made, something which I think, after watching this clip, we can all be grateful for. It's also a great example of how completely bizarre the Hollywood movie making process is.
