Microsoft Should Financially Support Open Source Projects

I left Jason Matusow a comment on his article about the Microsoft Open Specification Promise.

Jason Matusow graciously replied here. Jason, thank you for taking an interest in this topic. I think these issues are important to Microsoft as well as to the community of .NET developers. Jason also replied to my comment on his blog with some good points in a follow up comment.

Microsoft's Open Specification Promise

Everyone seems to think the Microsoft Open Specification Promise is a good next step for the company. It sounds good to me too.

HP's Boardroom Mess

in

Are there any truly upstanding citizen's on HP's board? I know they are in a tough position and I wouldn't want to be in that position. But none of them have exhibited the kind of behavior that exemplifies excellent character.

w.bloggar is back

w.bloggar is back. That's good news. (Windows Live Writer isn't working so well for me.)
However, now I see that the Wikipedia entry for w.bloggar is being considered for deletion. I personally feel the entry should be kept. If you feel the same way, head on over to Wikipedia.

Screen Capture Tool for Dual Monitors

I have been using MWSnap for a long time. It is generally considered one of the best free screen capture tools.

There are a surprising number of comments like the one below at the MWSnap forum.

Thank you for offering this software for free. It is extremenly useful in many ways. It is easy to use and does a great job capturing what I need. Before this I used to work between MS Paint and Windows Print Screen. This saves me alot of time and effort!
I would love to make a donation to show my gratitude.
