MVPs, please blog more…

Filed under: Uncategorized — @ 8:45 pm

I am sucker of reading technical blogs. It is like reading free chapters from recent books for most of the blogs. I follow blogs in C#, F#, .Net, Ruby and some Java. Most of the blogs that I follow, they tent to write good blogs as often as possible. For last month or so, I finish reading all my RSS feeds in a week or so my unread feed is less than 5 most of the time. So I decided to venture out and find some more blogs that I can read and use.

My obvious choice was Microsoft web site. I searched for C# blog and Google took me to Microsoft C# MVP list. I was so happy to see number of MVPs and I recognized couple of the MVPs since I follow their blogs. I really thought I hit the mother load of good blogs, but to my surprise most of them don’t blog at all or they are blogging somewhere else that Microsoft web site doesn’t have the correct blog address. Either way, I would like to see MVPs to blog more often so that they can share the wealth of knowledge they have with the community. If they are blogging then Microsoft need to update the MVP list with proper blog address. To my surprise some of them didn’t even blog for the last month and they have MVP status? I hope I am wrong.

Please blog more…

IE8 Beta crash!

Filed under: Uncategorized — @ 3:18 pm

I have been using IE8 Beta for some time now, I really enjoy all the cool new features they have implemented in it. The Addon features for social networking was very good and I used them a lot. Anyway, the point I was getting at is the IE8 crashes. If you cut and past the URL text in to address bar, IE8 crashes.  One good news is IE8 is ability to restore to its last known state and that is also a very good feature I love. Since I wasn’t doing lot of URL pasting, I didn’t pay attention to it at all. I have safari (I know what you are thinking Safari???, I use Mac at home) so I was ok.

Yesterday I was doing some research and I had the same crash. So I decided to hunt down the problem that was causing the problem. I faithfully googled it and got the answer. In case you are facing the problem, here is what you need to do

1. Go to Tools –> Options

2. Under Content –> Choose Settings under AutoComplete

3. Check Web Address

That is it. No more crashes.

have fun.
