.NET in Kansas City

Since I have finally started developing in .NET, I'd like to let people know about the Kansas City .NET User's Group. We meet monthly on the fourth Tuesday of the month from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. They have enticing door prizes like the C# book I won! Don't know the language, but it was free. There is typically a 'keynote' speaker discussing a .NET topic, but this month they talked about blogs.

Tim Hibbard has been raving about this technology for a long time and finally got me to start my own blog, as you are reading now. Just as each blog is unique, so are the sites that host them. Tim chose, which was started by Jeff Julian right here in Kansas City.

As our company, EnGraph, is continually evolving into .NET and utilizing these other amazing technologies, I can only say that I hope your company does not miss the boat. More people are viewing our website through our RSS feeds than all other means. It is a great way share, find and deliver information.

Anyway, this monster file contains all your emails, events, contacts, notes, etc. It can get quite large and mine was appraoching a Gig.

Simulating A Right-Click From The Keyboard

I have been doing quite a bit of LogMeIn (IT Reach and Rescue) lately and sometimes my mouse right-click does not work to get context menus.  Therefore, if you ever have this issue, just select the icon or item you need and press [Shift] [F10].  I am sure Tim could have told me this, but he wasn't here :)
