  • Sudoku and Tetris Game for Windows Mobile

    During my last two business trips (to Barcelona for TechEd and Mexico for ReMix) I was way too bored on the plane and since I recently got my Motorola Q9 (which is a sweet Windows Mobile Phone) decided to write myself a Tetris game and to port my Sudoku game to Windows Mobile as a way to do my "first steps" in the .NET Compact Framework.

  • See you at TechEd Developers 2007 in Barcelona!

    Today I'm flying to Barcelona to attend TechEd Developer 2007. I will be talking about IIS 7 Extensibility and showing some of the cool stuff we have been doing for the last couple of years, including Configuration Extensibility, building Managed Read More...

  • Using LINQ with Microsoft.Web.Administration

  • Recent Tasks in IIS Manager 7

    Talking to a good friend of mine (Daniel) about random geeky stuff, suddenly he showed me one of the features he considered very useful from the Windows Vista Control Panel. Basically they have a "Recent Tasks" at the bottom where they keep track of all the features you have used sorted by most recently used. He then suggested that we should do something similar inside IIS Manager 7 for those of us that have "task-amnesia" or are just to busy to search for it in the Control Panel.
