Happy Halloween!

OK, it's not halloween anymore. Did anyone else give out candy? I had almost 100 kids come by, but still have a tone of candy left over.

Halloween gig/party this weekend

So my band Deadman Tempo is playing a private Halloween party this weekend. Costumes are mandatory, and I don't know what it will be like to play in a get up (which is why I'm keeping it simple). I was thinking the whole band should go as KISS, but then the thought of all that face paint quickly ex-sponged that thought.

Anyone else have any crazy Halloween plans brewing?

XAML is not going away in windows 8

It's official.  Silverlight, and XAML will be first class citizens in the new metro ui. All the doomsayers can move on to the next issue of the week.

Windows 8 desktop ‘Just Another App’

Looks like Windows 8's new Metro style will not be the only user interface option. There will still be the traditional desktop, but it will not start up by default. Instead, it will launch like any other application. With this, you wont be wasting system resources if you care to only stick in the metro interface (on a mobile, or tablet for example). This should hopefully put to bed all the worry worts out there about Windows 8 only running javascript+html5 apps. There is a real OS behind it all folks, your current xp/vista/windows 7 applications will continue to function.
