Adventures in Windows Vista (x64) - Part 1

I installed Windows Vista Ultimate (x64) last night and everything went pretty smoothly. This, of course, is on the second machine I have on my desk so I can see what works (and doesn't) before making the full jump on the main machine. Out Of The

My PC no longer suffers from Xbox 360 envy!

I'm not sure when the device was released, but I've been waiting for this for a while. It wasn't at the local Best Buy this past Tuesday, but I found a couple at a local Game Stop. It is the Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for

XboxFriends + Community Server

OK, it's more of a proof of concept right now, but as you can see utilizing the HTTP Notifications feature in XboxFriends for the Desktop I am able to display my Xbox Live friends list on the right hand side. It does use caching so it is a little

Hmmm... Open Source recognizes VB... but Xbox 360 doesn't?

-- Begin Rant -- Now, I'm not sure what the “real” reason behind a decision (albiet a rumor, but I don't doubt it) of pulling the VB namespace from the modified Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0 that is being done for the Xbox 360.

Obviously I've been pretty swamped with work and everything else... including working on XboxFriends. Here is an image that demonstrates the ToolTip control that is included with Visual Studio 2005 utilizing the information in this article to display

Grrrrr... Murphy's Law strikes again!

Wouldn't you know that as soon as I make XboxFriends available, the Xbox guys would come along and make massive changes to their site. I didn't keep a real close eye on it, but the site appeared to be down for most of the day yesterday in order to apply

Been really busy...

I know, you've heard it before, but I've been really busy lately. I've been digging deep into Community Server helping some friends put together a community site. The more I dig into ASP.NET; the more I see how far web development has come yet still how

There is such a thing as being toooo paranoid...

I recently received a comment regarding XboxFriends that goes as follows: So do you store the Passport info so you can keep signing in every time Passport logs you out? And doesn't your program communicate through your server? Why should I trust you with

XboxFriends for the Desktop v1.1.0.70 (early beta)

I'm looking for a few people to test XboxFriends as thoroughly as they can before I release it publicly. The release is very behind since I had to make it a priority to obfuscate the code to protect one of the newest features (which was a requirement

Xbox 360 or PC Gaming lag???... Take a look at this...

I was experiencing a bit of lag while playing DOA4, so did some research. What I found is this link that measures your actual travel time performance (instead of generic ping) utilizing Quake III type of traffic. This test demonstrates how their StreamEngine

SiN Episodes, NDA's and a Preview

As I talked about back in December, I got a chance to play an early version of SiN Episodes but since I am under NDA (non-disclosure agreement) I couldn't really talk much about the game. Well, the game was demonstrated at CES 2006 and GameSpy has the

Xbox Live and MSN Messenger

It stinks... please fix it! OK, I know that's being a bit harsh, but hang with me just a moment. Prior to the relaunch, after selecting the “tab” on the left Xbox, you'd be shown an HTML page that had two “tabs” at the top of it.

Here's your chance to laugh your *ss off at me...

The .NET Rocks road show was here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area a couple of days ago. After the show, they did some interviews with the local crowd and I was hanging out with no real intention of being interviewed. Of course, that didn't work out exactly
