It’s been such a long time…

Time sure moves fast when you’re working on cool stuff.  Since my last post (over six years ago?!), I have had the privilege of working on some amaing products (ex: Kinect for Xbox 360, Xbox One). With the availability of the Kinect for Windows v2 preview, I am going to resume posting fairly regularly and…


Moving on…

If any of you read Gamerscoreblog, you may have noticed a suspicious resemblance between the photo of the zombie and the one that graces this site’s News section…  Let me quell any rumors by saying that it is indeed true that the zombie and I are, in fact, one and the same.  Earlier this year,…

One of the great ones has passed

This evening, I came home to the news that my absolute favorite author, Arthur C. Clarke had died.  I have been an avid reader or Mr. Clarke since I was 12.  That year, I first picked up a copy of ‘2001: A Space Odyssey".  From the start, I was hooked.  Now, 26 years later, I…

Steven Pratschner on the CLR Profiler for the .NET Compact Framework

I love tools.  Debuggers, analyzers, performance monitors, profilers, everything.  In version 1 of the .NET Compact Framework, the only available tools where the Visual Studio debugger and the performance counter data file (also known as the app.stats file).  Version 2 added diagnostic logs and in Service Pack 1, the Remote Performance Monitor. Version 3.5’s power…

[Off-topic] A present to myself

I don’t often go off-topic on this site.  In fact, I probably start each off-topic post with the same basic statement.  Seeing that tomorrow is a national holiday in the United States, today seemed like a good time to take a little break here.
