“The CodePlex Foundation has announced the arrival of several new board members, including Jim Jagielski, the Chief Open Source Officer of SpringSource. Jagielski, who was one of the original cofounders of the Apache Software Foundation, brings a lot of credibility and leadership experience to the CodePlex Foundation.”

I’ve heard some of the people who were behind this talk, and it is totally coming from a good place. You could even say that it is a milestone for MS corporate culture. But the last thing anyone needs is another one of these foundations. They just should have just joined OSI and thrown a bunch of money at them.
But the OSI and CodePlex have different agendas. OSI supports open source software regardless of platform. CodePlex is there to make open source software work better on Windows, so that Microsoft can usurp the value adding applications from Linux. Now that may not necessarily be a bad thing, but Microsoft continues to claim that Linux is infringing their patents and charge companies for license fees on their Linux infrastructure.

We have “peace for our time.”
I wonder why they choose for horizontal scrolling. To me vertical scrolling seems more logical because text goes downward has as well. It just seems unintuitive. Maybe they choose horizontal because of screen space.
Iâ€™m pretty new to your blog, but am enjoying what I have read so far. This post particularly caught my attention as my wife and I are going to Vegas for a few days in a couple months.I got us a room at the MGM Grand for $55 per night, and it came with a few bonusesâ€¦
A couple free buffets, a couple free drinks, and a couple free club passes. I donâ€™t even know if we will use the club passes, but if my wife has anything to say about it Iâ€™m sure we will. I was happy to get the buffet passes; we went to Vegas last year and stayed at MGM and ate their buffet, it was pretty good, so having it free will help with our food budget.Anyway, I am interested to know what your craps strategy is, I usually play blackjack, but I am trying to learn craps, care to share?
