WLM goes final!

Windows Live Messenger is the first of the "Live" products to go final version. No more Betas, just pure working joy - richer experience, folder sharing, better audio... and new extensibility options for developers!!! [more about this in future posts].

[Update: install from here]

SQL Everywhere

If you're looking for a simple client data storage option, SQL Everywhere might be an answer for your needs. It's currently available as downloadable CTP and RTM is planned for later this year.

I spent a few hours trying it out

And the summer concert season begins...

... with the first of the three big concerts I'm planning for this summer - Depeche Mode, Ljubljana Stadium, yesterday. Great, finally got to see them live. They were on stage over 1 1/2 hours and I wouldn't mind them continuing playing all night :) Personal highlights: Enjoy The Silence and Photographic. The official merchandise price was set somewhat high, but if you want, you can also order the CD set from last night's show here.

Setlist: Intro | A Pain That I'm Used To | A Question Of Time | Suffer Well | Precious | Walking In My Shoes | Stripped | Home | It Doesn't Matter Two | In Your Room | Nothing's Impossible | John The Revelator | I Feel You | Behind The Wheel | World In My Eyes | Personal Jesus | Enjoy The Silence || Shake The Disease | Photographic | Never Let Me Down Again

Custom ProfessionalColors Helper

Here's the source code of the Custom ProfessionalColors Helper sample, which I was using on my Building Rich UI w/ VS2005 talk on recent NTK2006 conference. Feel free to download, use and modify it at your will. This sample helps you define your custom color tables, which you can use for feeding the ToolStrip renderer to get the customized/themed look. The Randomize option makes additional, yet completely useless addition to the sample ;)
