Mono as a VMWare image

Great news. Folks from Mono project decided to make our life much easier and they've released Suse with preinstalled Mono, MonoDevelop, ASP.NET and WinForms samples as a VMWare image. Now I don't even have to reboot my machine in order to check it out. Sweet :).

Quite neat ESB definition

I very like the approach Ron Ten-Hove has taken. At first he tries to define ESB using only a sentence then a paragraph and then a bullet list. Choose what you like :).

Scoble's exit interview

It’s really worth watching the last channel 9 video with Scoble. It’s full of advices and smart thoughts/observations. I really like two of them which I agree with.

Something about people in general: "Fear factor is higher then hope factor"

His definition of perfect boss: "Your boss should go ahead of you, break ice, get things out of your way in order to help you do your job"

LLBLGEN 2.0 is ready to use

I'm big fun of this tool and I've been using it for last 7 months without almost any problems. And now generics and nullable types are available. That's great but at least one feature is still missing. The project file is a binary file instead of Xml (or text) file. It's really important because if something goes wrong I can't fix it at all. I simply have to open last saved version. Any way good job Frans.
