WM5.0 Emulator Networking
Using networking in the device emulators in VS2005 is not as nice as it should be. The first time you try to use the network in the emulator you'll probably get this error: "Failed to open the VPC Network Driver. Verify that the driver is installed, or install the driver from the Web download location at Or if the first time you try to use the network is with the IP*Works! .Net CF Edition components, you'll get an even uglier error saying: "A socket ......

Back Home
I'm back home from DevConnections and Las Vegas (luckily my wallet only weighs a little bit less than it did when I showed up in Vegas).  Two other guys took over the /n software booth - if you are there, drop by and say "hi" and sign up to win an iPod Nano.  The conference was packed, lots of people and some great speakers.

Tonight was the keynote (Scott Guthrie) at DevConnections, followed by the dessert reception in the expo hall. Cakes of all types...mmmmm, yummy. Nothing like cake and beer together!

Bloglines and Enclosures
Its old news that Bloglines had some obvious changes recently (ie, the hotkeys), but I did not realize that one of these changes was enclosure recognition. I tell you one thing, for an RSS aggregation software company, bloglines sure does have trouble communicating with its users. For some strange reason, their news page *looks* like it might be based on a feed, but it has no permalinks. Do they even have a blog?Technorati tags: bloglines ......

I'll be at the DevConnections show coming up in Vegas as an exhibitor (look for me at the nsoftware booth!).  This will also be my first time in Vegas and I'll have some extra time before the show to play in the casinos, but hopefully I can make it out of there without losing my shirt (otherwise people might look at me funny in the expo hall!).  This trip should be a lot of fun!  See you there!
