I’ve been away from the blog for a few days taking some time off from work. In a couple of hours I catch a flight to St. Louis–the first stop in a short tour through the Midwest on behalf of INETA. Tonight I speak to the St. Louis .NET user group. Tomorrow night I speak to the Central Illinois .NET user group in Bloomington, IL, and the following night I visit the Little Rock .NET user group. If you’re in any of these cities, drop by and join in on the fun.

The Visual Studio 2005 beta seems to be running fine again now that I repaved my hard disk. I didn’t reformat the drive; instead, after uninstalling VS, I manually deleted the leftover directories and registry entries. That did the trick. Now let’s hope it doesn’t start acting up on me again on the road.
