I just tried to download Firefox 3 from their official site. However that seems to be down. Luckily one of my US buddies, Kevin Jones, knew another site where you can download the goods: http://mozilla.isohunt.com/firefox/releases/3.0/win32/.

I hope this also counts for the download marathon.

Grz, Kris.

Just found out about this site: (http://www.hownerdyareyou.be/). It's a site to popularize jobs in IT in Belgium amongst youngsters so it's only available in Dutch and French.

Apparently I'm a NerdyPro and should be proud of it. Yes I am.

Last week I attended an interesting presentation about version control with Team Foundation Server. Yves Goeleven presented about the different patterns when it comes down to branching and merging.

If you're interested you can watch the presentation online divided in 3 different pieces (taken from Katriens blog):

Wow, someone has been busy. There just appeared 46 brand new AJAX Control Toolkit tutorials. They're nice and short to show specific topics and needs. Nicely done.

I used this site already before but then it only showed just plain links to blog articles or channel 9 videos. When I just took a look it was completely restyled. The Silverlight usage for the ticker looks pretty interesting but seems to lack content at the moment of writing.

Just found out about this little tool that seemed interesting to me: Kaxaml, a lightweight xamlpad alike tool. Apparently it's also free which is always a nice thing.

I found out about this tool by navigating around on the site of Blendables, a vendor of WPF controls. And I got to know about this particular site thanks to Gill.

Just found out about this site about security: Hellosecureworld. Take a look at it. It's in Silverlight (always a good reason to check something out) and it has comics (another good reason). What are you waiting for: click the link!

In case you're still unaware of it, Community day is going to be held on June 26th. This is a free day with interesting technical content provided by the combined forces of several Belgian user groups. Be sure to check out the agenda of what's provided that day.

I'm also going to be there so if you'd like to say, hi just come over and do so.

Wow, this is a cool application. Be sure to check it out and have Silverlight installed. Funny thing for me is that I worked in a team in 2001 that was also into adding/upgrading a software tool for patient handling in hospitals. If we only had the UI possibilities of Silverlight/WPF in those days to work out everything...

Personally, I foresee much more of these kind of applications with these great technologies.

I just noticed at home that the look & feel of live search has changed. Steve Balmer recently stated that Microsoft is updating its whole live experience and certainly search. Could this be a new step forward to a renewed platform? Recently I found myself using live search more and more instead of google.
