All hail the debuggers

I heard these guys got a lot of flak on Slashdot, which frankly they don’t deserve; the debuggers worked on Gotdotnet when we struggled with live site issues this spring and they assisted us in the Whidbey conversion this fall (Jeff Stucky this spring, Chris St. Amand this fall). Now that we are on Whidbey, Gotdotnet’s…


Finally, the Gotdotnet job listing is up

Essentially, do you want to change the world with Gotdotnet? Do you want to work only on the latest .NET Framework? On 64-bit servers? Innovate with a small team? It’s not for the timid, trust me:      


Gotdotnet, we suck less

So it’s been a mad rush since we went to Whidbey RTM bits and I know it scarred some of you, for which I have to apologize. There are some server rodeo rides in that deployment  that I don’t care to describe in too much detail. For all you guys trying to take a cheap shot at…


Gotdotnet turns 5 and you are invited

The Gotdotnet team is throwing a Birthday Party and all Gotdotnet users are invited! The party will occur at the Microsoft Visitor Center this Friday, November 18, 2005 between 6PM and 10PM. For more event details, see or visit the Gotdotnet homepage. And ya, I’m hunting for our special birthday logo – will re-post…


Happy Birthday Whidbey!

So, I have not blogged in forever. Years in Gotdotnet time, but over a month to the rest of you. 😀 Yes, I have aged. Pete has not aged, but he has also not slept. (Hey, that might be the secret! Just don’t sleep…) Gotdotnet is currently launched on Whidbey in beta mode. What this…


Something about mice and men

..ok, so I went to this great event last night with Microsoft MVPs prior to the MVP summit. It was sponsored by our team, the brainchild of Korby Parnell, and affectionately called the Gotdotnet Codeslam. (Think poetry slams and Mike Meyer and you get the idea). CodeGallery was the featured application and we showed it off…


Catch Robert Scoble Webcasting about Blogging

As opposed to Scoble blogging about webcasts, we now have him webcasting about blogging. 🙂 This should be some good stuff – I stole some of my best lines at TechEd Australia from Robert. (Sorry international folks – this is in English only) Monday, September 26, 2005 11:00 AM (GMT-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada) …


Sleepy in Seattle

Hi all, So I am back from the land down under. I was accused of “cavorting in Oz” while I was gone by one higher up manager that shall remain nameless, but I told him anything having to do with vegemite hardly counts as “cavorting.” Or if it does, I don’t want to know about…


My Last TechEd Australia Blog Post

Well things are winding down, down here, and I feel the need to cover some loose ends. First, the matter of the Cabana Talk. Frank and I spoke to about 40 people. When we began we asked what people wanted – the hosting engine, the content delivery mechanisms  ( Smart Components), or how to promote…
