Memorial Day

This Monday is Memorial Day.

It is the day we are supposed to honor those who gave all in the service of our country.

Fly your flag (half mast till noon, then full staff)
Thank a Vet
Remember those who gave their all.

Taps is played at 2 times during the day in the military. At night, signaling the end of the day, and during the day - signaling the end of someone's days here on earth.


Day is done, gone the sun,
From the hills, from the lake,
From the sky.
All is well, safely rest,
God is nigh.

Not The Post but... Visual Studio on a Mac?

I still have not gotten my deep thought post written, the brain just has not been into it (hey, the leg has been bothering me, so..)

Anyway, I've been thinking about getting a new Laptop (the current 'personal' laptop is a PIII based unit...)

I've heard some good things about Macbook pros laptops runing Vista under either Parallels or VMWare. Have any of you had any experience running Vista/Visual Studio 2008 (and in particular VB.NET) on a Macbook pro?

Bloggings Been Light

Hi Gang (I know I've got at least 3-4 readers out there, hey, that puts me well above average)

Blogging has been light, because I've been seriously thinking about a post. Last week, a bunch of different blogs posted about working alone and Agile/XP/TDD. I found it interesting, because this is for all intents the situation I'm in (department has 15 programmers, but mostly, we work alone - dumb, but)
