more vsts pricing info

In this video, Rick LaPlante addresses the six key questions that arose following the pricing and licensing announcement: What about the little guy? Why are you raising the price of MSDN Universal? Why don't I get the server when I buy the client? If you were a consultant, what would you buy? If I do all of the roles, which product do I buy? Didn't the “universal” in MSDN Universal mean I get everything? Download [0:36:25]

doclib explorer and feedreader source

well, it looks like someone beat me to it on the doc lib explorer: (Document Library Explorer 1.0).  i kinda figured this was going to happen as i haven't had much time lately to dedicate to these tools.  UPDATE: i just saw martinm's post about this tool, you may want to check it out: http://blogs.tamtam.nl/mart/MoreSharepointOnGotDotNet.aspx additionally as a result, feedreader has suffered and the much needed fixes (for proxies) have not been implemented.  because of this, i've decided (finally, some may say) to release feedreader source code in the wild under the creative commons license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/). i'll need to clean some things...

in the "that's pretty cool" category

need to know the name of a song, but don't know who sings it or anything else? when you hear it, call 866-411-SONG, hold your cell phone up to the speaker...and wait for your SMS message with the title/artist. i tried it twice with Psycho Killer from the Talking Heads and Cowboy Song from Thin Lizzy and it worked both times. of course, my cell phone is now strewn across the dialers of the world i'm sure, but still...pretty cool.

teched 2005 sold out!

wow.  a month and a half before the event and it is sold out.  a key to getting to teched (even a sold out one) is to get involved in your community (user groups, local events, etc) -- get to know your regional director and your evangelist team for your area. community thought leaders generally can get “stuff” even when “stuff” isn't available ;-)

google -- the beta company

i've been thinking recently about beta software.  i've recently been trying to learn why some companies, already heavily invested in .net technologies wouldn't rapidly adopt .net beta 2.  i mean, it isn't drastically different (as was the perception of the .net framework from previous windna platform technologies)...it's still .net -- just a better .net. in my conversations with individuals and companies alike, mostly the response has been “it's still beta [dude]” (dude added in for the individual response.  okay, yeah, you're right it is.  but what if i told you that ms offers a go-live license (as they have done in...
