Should, or shouldn't I? (Spend $1,500 on Google Glass, that is). Does anyone have any experience with it? Is it worth it?

I think I have to order it though. Don't know if I could try it anywhere...

Friday the Paraolympics are set to open in Sochi. Makes you wonder: Will all countries just go there and act like Russia is oh-so-great-and-friendly and like nothing happened one more time?

Dang it! I just had some kind of a problem, and now I forgot what it was. I think I am getting old :-)

Perhaps the problem was that you forgot something? :)

Here's a question for my Mac-expert friends: Can you think of anything that could be wrong when I can't connect to a Windows machine using Remote Desktop on the Mac? Remote access is on for sure on the Windows 8 box (I routinely connect to it from other machines). The firewall isn't blocking anything. I can connect to shares on the Windows machine from the Mac through Finder. But when I try to connect through Remote Desktop, it says the machine isn't found. Hmpf!

On a side-note: Why the heck can't Finder just see all the machines on the local network like any other computer could? What happened with "it just works"?

Excited about the upcoming WPF training. Just finished the final details of the brand new WPF/XAML Anti-Patterns session. This will be some cool stuff. And no doubt ruffle some feathers. I need to write some articles about this stuff! :-)

We are still taking signups for our brand new WPF class (http://www.codemag.com/Training/Detail/ad041466-0818-4ae1-9c4c-a125f15393a6).  This can be attended on-site or online. 

We are doing a low intro price since we want to get as many people to see this new content and get as much feedback as we can. I am pretty excited about this new content, since we think it shows WPF from a slightly different angle, which should help people to steer around most of the really problematic WPF patterns. My goal is to have people walk out of my presentation and see WPF different.

To my Houston friends: Does anyone have any great idea for an awesome party location in downtown Houston? Somewhere near the GRB Convention Center? Looking to host a few hundred people. Ideally a location that one can't just go to and have a drink on their own. So something that is unusually cool in that sense. (Like we had previously had parties at the Dallas Aquarium for instance, which was neat). But if we can't find anything like that, then a really cool bar or something along those lines would be an option too.

Well, actually, let me re-phrase that. The entire company (CODE/EPS) is 20 years old. The magazine is only 15.

We have just released a new build of CODE Framework. There are quite a few changes. One of the biggest new features is the addition of a new theme called "Wildcat", which is now available as a draft version. Wildcat is inspired by Billy Hollis' StaffLynx application. (And, btw, thanks Billy, for allowing us to add this). You can get this new build at http://codeframework.codeplex.com/

Does anyone know if there are any waterproof cases for @Fitbit one at this point? Or any of the other Fitbits for that mater?

Working on a new CODE Framework theme called "Wildcat". It is am homage to Billy Hollis' Staff Lynx app. He was nice enough to give us permission to do this. There are some details in this theme that are quite tricky, I have to say. One item in particular has kept me busy for the last few days. But we are getting close! :-)
