Congrats to Jeff for making MSDN Magazine!!!

Wednesday, January 7, 2004 5:06 PM
I was just reading my recent copy of MSDN magazine and was shocked to see an article about POP Forums in there. It was a pretty small blurb but it seemed to give Jeff's software glowing praise in managing forum based ASP.NET sites.

Congrats Jeff!!!

I'm not sure what any of that means, but it sounds like it's good. ;) Way to go, Jeff! Do you have to fend off software nerds too? ;)

Yes, I remember when I first showed the forum to one of our tech guys (nice guy, Steve, he was smart enough to bail about a year ago). He looked at the 'buzz main page and said "POP forums, you know that is THE sh*t"....

...and to me, here, the critical piece is that Jeff continues to work to IMPROVE on the software that was already more than good enough. Our (remaining) guys can't fix a bug without a case of Raid...;)

Nice. I peeked at the documentation for his objects a month or two back, the boy knows what he's doing...very organized (I can only now appreciate it after battling the .NET demons for the past few months).

who's a clever boy then?

Did you seem in the chipotle advert as well? :P

Huh... is this online? I don't think I get MSDN Mag anymore, even after they were threatening the end of the subscription after like three years. Which issue and what section was it in? I guess those cats will print anything.

MSDN Magazine is the dead tree branch of the Microsoft Developer Network.

With the help of a couple of people who reviewed the free source code (yeah, the forum is now free), I'm cleaning up the core engine now, and will make a final version of the UI in the coming weeks. The UI here at CB will not change, but you're already soaking in the core engine code. URL's actually parse correctly for the first time ever. :)

If my new job doesn't take up too much time, the next task will be to develop a new version that takes advantage of v2 of .Net, coming later this year.

Congrats Jeff! :-)

YAY go girl! ;)

Wow, Post of the year and now this? Go Jeff.;)

I have to say, I love the design of this forum, easiest to use, hands down.

Wednesday, January 7, 2004 7:03 PM
Yeah, it's cool and all ... but I still see <table> all over your source code! ;)

Bastard. ;)

Uh, so are these forums the kind that end with:

name and address withheld?

...cause I was wondering what the hell is such a big deal? ;)

Wednesday, January 7, 2004 7:17 PM what's the deal with .NET v2?

Congrats Jeff! I appreciate computer people such as yourself who make things nice and easy for non techs such as myself. Right on.

Jeff, were you coding on a laptop on a bench next to Millennium Force on 6/29 at 11:31 am at CP? If you were, I sat next to you.
Wednesday, January 7, 2004 10:30 PM
that is just sick. I've coded in bad places before, but who in their right mind (or wrong mind for that matter) is coding at CP?
Wednesday, January 7, 2004 11:07 PM
A very happy person...Who wouldnt be happy (or inspired sitting on there computer, roller coasters roaring in the background.....I wish I was there right now............

Uh no... I think you have to be a complete loser to be writing code in an amusement park. You should've asked him if he liked pancakes the way I do, and then you could've been best friends.

I've never written code at a park, but I HAVE emailed it from a rest stop on the way TO a park (deadline...)

I once had to sit for a couple of hours in my Las Vegas hotel room finishing up a component for a tight deadline at work. That sucked.

Doing anything remotely related to work while you're in Sin City is just wrong. :)
