- Fall in Wisconsin means 2 things: lots of extra yard work before winter (cleanup, raking leaves, grass seed / fertilizer, cleaning gutters ...) and Packers season. In fact, I'm watching the Packers try to eek out a win right now against the Jaguars, after having spent the morning raking my yard. Long story short, the extra day of chores and 3+ hours of football eat heavily into my weekly blogging window.
- I started working on a CodeProject sample and article on how to "Make your own simple web widget", which I was planning to tie a blog post into. I spent a bunch of time researching, coding, testing, etc. on the project, only to find a great example by Alex Marandon on how to do it just as I was writing my first draft. Frankly, his example worked better than mine, so I bookmarked it as a reference and moved on (albeit a little disappointed).
Hopefully you'll keep checking in - lots of cool stuff to come!
