Before you ask it, allow me to answer your question. Yes, we are planning to provide friendly urls for CodeGallery. In fact, we already did it! The friendly, or vanity URL…

An Open Letter to Santa Claus RE: XBox 360

Dear Santa,I have been a good boy this year although it’s pretty hard to prove to you since you’re all the way up at the North Pole, it’s true. I’ve worked and studied hard. I’ve been nice, thought good thoughts, and remained optimistic. I have practiced humility, honesty, and Halo. I even let a friend borrow one of my…

Tetris .NET on Gotdotnet

Tetris.NET is my pick for Gotdotnet Science Project of the Month: a VB.NET version of the classic game that occupied way too many hours of my misspent youth.
