MS Acropolis

June 5, 2007

Just saw this on the MSDN homepage:

“Microsoft Code Name “Acropolis” is a set of components and tools intended to make it easier for developers to build and manage modular, business focused, client applications for Microsoft Windows on the .NET Framework”

Random Software

June 1, 2007

I stumped upon this in the MS downloads, it’s called “Facebook Dev Toolkit” for Windows and Web.  How does it interact with Facebook’s site?  Don’t know, but it did catch my eye.

Someone mentioned DWebPro to me, and it sounds cool.  It packages up a dynamic website (code, database, etc) that will run from a CD.  The author is Italian, so the website isn’t in english, but there are links off other file servers.  Why isn’t there any OpenSouce software for this?

Google Gears “is an open source browser extension that lets developers create web applications that can run offline”.  All the code is javascript, so there’s no need to learn another language or anything – it just ‘works’.  It looks like a natural progression of technology, first Java and the JRE and now just a simple framework that works with existing javascript.  I’m suprised MS didn’t have this up in their MS Labs.

This will allow you to select various parts of the MSDN TOC tree and bundle them into their own help file.  Very handy.

Sean is Back in the Valley

September 26, 2006

After leaving NBC for MSNBC, I didn’t follow Sean (like the word seen), but did think he was a good meteorologist, even if he did mispronounce his name.  And now I just saw him on CBS!  He does look older, much older than I remember.  Has it been that long since he left the valley?  Googling found the CBS annoucement and he also has a page on wikipedia!!  Apparently, he’s been back since July.
