  • PDC Day 2 Live Blog Problem

    I am seeing the replay of the Day 1 Live Blog in the post about doing a live blog on Day 2. Was the replay accidently put where the live blog should be? I'm using IE7, will check in FireFox...

    • Can't View Live Blog in FireFox

      I'm thinking this problem transcends the client, therefore it is a server problem. I hope y'all make the Day 2 Live Blog available before the keynotes start!

    Did you know you can catch video podcasts with PDC presenters and experts in MS Technologies on the OnMicrosoft Vidcast? http://www.informit.com/onmicrosoft - weekly conversations with MS developers and IT Pros. Learn about "Oslo" The "M" Modeling language, and PDC announcements from the C#, VB, and Concurrency Teams. (By way of disclosure, I produce the series and welcome any feedback.) Cheers-EG
