Well, now that I'm back from Tech Ed, it's time to look back through my notes and start writing down my thoughts on what I did and what I saw. I'm starting that right now, but I wanted to get some things out there first. While the technical content at T… more »

Talking To The GotDotNet Team

posted on 2005-06-12 at 22:05:28 by Joel Ross

I got a chance to talk with the GotDotNet team about the future of Workspaces as well as the whole GotDotNet platform. And I got a free shirt. I think I mentioned that before! It was surprising to see how apologetic they were for the software, even tho… more »

Screencasting as UI Testing

posted on 2005-06-02 at 11:03:20 by Joel Ross

I got the chance to listen to the return of the Gillmor Gang today, and it was pretty good. The guest was Adam Curry, and he did an OK job of keeping up with the intellect of the Gang. I did notice one thing though - either I'm getting smarter or this ep… more »

I spent some time a while ago putting together my Tech Ed schedule. I think I have it done. I'm not sticking to one track, and will be jumping around quite a bit. My schedule also has all of the BOF sessions that I'm interested in. I won't make it to all… more »

Build Servers

posted on 2005-05-12 at 22:51:14 by Joel Ross

I've been on LinkedIn for a while now, and I just noticed I am connected to 210,000 people out of 2,500,000. I only have 19 connections of my own, but through those 19, I have access to 210,000.  Only just recently did it occur to me to add other blogger… more »

Using a Cell Phone Headset with Skype

posted on 2005-05-11 at 22:05:12 by Joel Ross

I have a nice headset that I really like. Actually I have two. Both work great, but both work only with my cell phone, and I've been using Skype a lot more lately than I have in the past. I used to use a set of headphones and the built-in microphone on m… more »

posted on 2005-05-11 at 21:55:14 by Joel Ross

Here's a pretty comprehensive set of instructions on hardening Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6.0. Now that I've recently installed Windows 2003 and have it running on my home network (semi-exposed), this is important to me. It looks like it'll take a whil… more »
