So, in case you haven't noticed, I haven't been blogging a lot lately.
Mostly because I haven't had the time. I used to blog at work during times
when my main machine was tied up compiling or JIT'ing. I have been trying
to avoid using company resources for this (for fear that the smack down will
happen and I will no longer be allowed to blog at all... if I do it solely on my
time then everything is cool). I had also been using my tablet to
blog with (as well as to test stuff and read other blogs offline), but someone
freaked out about my tablet and I'm no longer allowed to bring it to work (it
Since I lost my PDA in the Seattle airport (when I was flying back), I can't
even read blogs that way... I feel so disconnected <sigh>. Once I
get paid for the PocketPC project Dave and I did I'll run out and buy a new
PDA. I don't want to spend that much on a new PDA, but I'll probably end
up calling Dell, giving them a sob story, and hopefully they'll cough up one of
the 25% off discount coupons (on a new Axim X50) which I'll use to buy an
Axim X50 Advanced (the 520 Mhz one). I'll write about it once that happens
(I miss my PDA terribly... and using my TabletPC at work as well).
Stuff I'm toying with
So I am using my other PC at
work to play around with SharpTools.
I really like it. It really seems to simplify add-in development. I
have played with CodeRush (because their API is also free to develop with...),
but I really don't like how it takes over the environment; while the arrows and
stuff are neat, sometimes I have stared at them wondering what they were
supposed to be telling me... Sorry Mark Miller (you're a cool guy, but I like
the simplicity of SharpTools is better for me -- for now).
I'm also planning on getting back to reviewing a product or two (once the
smoke clears in my life a little)
