Missed Airplanes and Automobiles
There's a reason you're supposed to arrive at an airport an hour before your flight. I arrived 35 minutes before my flight, and as they were confirming my information, it kicked the guy off and refused to issue my tickets. Luckily, another flight was found for me, but now I will arrive 3 hours later. I am currently sitting around Charlotte waiting for my next flight. It's a good thing they have free wireless Internet here. I'll arrive in Philadelphia sometime after midnight. Then, I've got to get ......

""RegAsm : warning RA0000 : No registry script will be produced since there are no types to register." There are three things to check if this happens. Make ......

Goal List - 2008
A lot happened in 2007: I finally got around to obtaining my MCTS in ASP.NET, I started a new long term contract, I bought a house, and I got married! More relevant to the community, I helped found the Columbia Enterprise Developers Guild and decided to take up speaking. Today will not be a day of new resolutions for me. I will continue the plan I laid out privately a few months ago. I'm listing it here to share my goals, much as some of the other bloggers have done. My plan is aggressive, because ......
