Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Very cool news this morning for Flex developers – Flash Builder 4 was released last night. You can get it now. I’m a long time Visual Studio user, and I knew every keyboard shortcut I needed to know to spend my days developing software without touching the mouse. For some reason with all the time […]

Watching Olympic Hockey. (Last time I'll mention it, I promise). # @travelmop I was just thinking the #BellTV HD signal looked a little fuzzier than usual.
