my compadre ai was hacking away on some linq/blinq stuff the other day (well last week or so, i took a long time looking at the issue myself because i was in vegas last week) and found that the default BLINQ'd site does not render well at all in ie7.
well, it turns out the css isn't too friendly. i initially put in the latest css adapter base into a BLINQ'd site and it worked fine, but paulita quickly pointed out a much simpler fix.

i've been experimenting developing windows vista sidebar gadgets lately. one thing that is lacking is a core template for all things sidebar gadget (or at least i've not found one).
i'll save my thoughts on developing a sidebar gadget for a 'part 2' post once i finish the simple one i'm working on (well, not 'simple' but simple enough with some different features).

shh...don't tell anyone...some sweet deals on windows mobile devices, including the new dash..

so i've decided that i'm likely not going to see any sessions at devconnections. i'm doing some major booth duty :-) -- but that's okay, the conferences are for the attendees to hammer on the microsoft guys anyway...i enjoy listening to the questions.
today we have Greg Proops (who at least i know from the show who's line is it anyway? running around the conference and harrassing people. okay, he's not doing much of that, but this guy is funny. we had a chance to talk with him as well...he was pretty funny and asked us some great questions about microsoft...although he was fascinated by our "evangelist" title more than anything:
(that's me, steve loethen, greg proops, and woody pewitt)
after that we had a great time hanging out at the exhibit hall opening and then hosted MSUnplugged in the evening:
it was basically a 'grok talk' night where we had each person doing 10-minute demos. we gave away some xbox 360's, readyboost flash drives, lifecams, blimps, and oh yeah...some zunes. i had a great time and hopefully the attendees did as well.
we'll be here the rest of the week, so stop by and say hello!
