Jogging Through VS.NET - Contour Shuttle Pro 2 + VS.NET + Coderush
OK.... so y'all thought I had dropped of the face of the earth. It's been a stressful wee while at work.
But here is some cool new VS.NET foo for you.
I've been trying out the use of my Countour Designs Shuttle Pro v2 controller, the type you use for video editing, with VS.NET and Coderush.
It allows me to use the control surface to navigate my way around my code, jog in one hand, mouse in the other. I've also got it setup for a few other commands. It uses the Coderush smart navigation and smart selection stuff as well as Coderush markers.
This is my first cut at a settings file for the Shuttle and I'll probably change it after I've been using it for a while. but, I thought I'd share it anyway.
Here is the settings file and the HTML file that shows what each button/dial does.

Clemens has a GREAT piece on software patents.
I agree with him entirely- there are some strange/insnane patents being awarded. But, we do not need to throw the baby out with the bath water.....

The Appropriateness of Communicating While Abluting
How appropriate is it to yack on the phone while sitting on the john?
Reason I ask is that I was just in the toilets here in Redmond and someone was in one of the stalls talking on their phone while making the most ghastly set of peripheral noises....
Is the ever appropriate?

*whoops* It happened again....
Well I should get a good nights sleep tonight because Air NZ, bless their souls, have decided to let me sit in 2K on my AKL-SFO leg...So I can only conclude that Rod and I are not really getting 'First Class' but rather sitting as Business passengers in first class seats.
Still... I'm not complaining.... closest thing I'll get to the Lie Flat Businessman for a good wee while yet

I'm Addicted To Outlook Mobile
OK... so Outlook mobile truely does run my entire life for me....
You see if something needs to be done, unless it is in there it will not get done....
eg.g From today.
Wifey, who is working in Wellington as an advisor to the minister of ACC, sent me a meeting request titled “Shut cat flap so cat can't get out”... I can just accept it and now I'll have no worries getting the kitty to the kitty summer resort tommorow.

MSDN Regional Director.....
OK..... the flair post from last night was really harping back to some stuff that Rory was going on about earlier in the year.
I posted the new flair (logo) to the left last night to see if anyone noticed... which they didn't... but now I can announce good and proper.
Someone, well Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom (or generosity) has decided to let me wear a Regional Director hat for a period. Which is all really rather cool.
It's quite an intimidating group to be associated with though Lots of names of people whose books I've read and looked up to when I was a little whipper snapper developer......
Anyway... it's all rather exciting. Will hopefuly give me more opportunities to work with the community and evangelise technology as I an want to do.
