Attending Campus Crusade's Midsouth Conference...

It's the first time I have ever attended a Christian conference where twitter was being used so much during the conference. Usually I don't equate twitter with a Christian conference, but Campus Crusade's midsouth conference is certainly an exception. From the beginning of the conference to the end, participants were tweeting all kind of stuff all the time.

Anyhoo, last time I worked with Visual Studio it was pretty impressive. Visual Studio 2010 is out in beta,… Continue
