I’m Not Dead Yet

Couldn’t resist the Monty Python reference…

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted to my blog. I’ve been caught up in Twitter land which appeals to my lazy programmer side (140 characters is much easier to conjure up than a blog post is). I’ve also been spending most of my free time (when I normally write these blog entries) playing with .NET, Visual Studio, Ruby, Ruby in Steel, and ASP.NET MVC. Add to that some C and Delphi stuff at work, and my brain has been mush for the last few months.

I’m skipping Southwest Fox this year, but I’ll be in Washington D.C. at the end of August for our next Advantage Technical Summit. I believe we will be hosting a Visual FoxPro user group meeting while we are in town as well.

As for technical blog content, I hope to post some more soon. I’ve recently had the need to slurp up a specific portion of the ads_err log and post it to a remote exception logger. I hope to publish and post a .NET version of that code when I’m finished. Unless of course some of you have already done that, in which case it would be cool if you could e-mail me the code…  ;)
