Must Focus On Work!
But I’m soooo tempted to fire up my spiffy new Longhorn virtual PC so that I can play with Avalon. So far I’ve only written one application, a simple window with the text “Hello World”. I had some trouble getting the project manifest written, so that first app was built using straight C# and the C# compiler. My goal for this week is to build something meaningful using XAML and the control compositing….maybe tic-tac toe. The only bad part is no one will get to use anything I write for two years or so…ah, the pain of living on the cutting edge! I guess I’ll just throw up a bunch of screenshots.
You know, if I had a Tablet PC I’d write an electronic ink scorekeeping app for scrabble and card games. I mean, I crushed Sarah and Blossom Sunday, but I’d like to have a permanent record of just how humiliating their defeat was. For posterity, you know?
Crud, now I’m blogging instead of working. I’m trying to massage our project to the point where we can do our first full build, and for some reason I keep getting distracted. Ok, back to work.
