What's Up?

So what is going on in my world?

Well first of all, sorry for all the "deals/coupons" posts. With lack of other content, I thought it would be interesting but I definetly went a little overboard. Hehe...

In the book world, things have been going well. "The COMPLETE Effect and HLSL Guide" is still selling decently. Hopefuly sales will keep picking up as the word spreads out. Also, I have just recieved the proof for ShaderX4 which I will go over this weekend. Seems like the projet is about 2 weeks behind schedule but the book should be out before Christmas.

I am also working on a new book project, will not go into details just yet. But it is a second edition of a french programming title which I am transalating. This book covers .NET 2.0 and should almost 1000 pages. The release is planned for January and I should be able to post more details in the next few weeks.

Also, with all this "deal" posting and my dealing with www.RewardLadder.com, I thought of a cool little project to work on. Quite often, I am looking for deals and have to search several sites. Although you can use a RSS aggregator to improve on this, I though a specialized tool would be in order. DealPlucker, which I decided to name it, essentially will aggregate deals from several sources while gathering additional deal information from the vendor site and offering special features such as searches and price compare. It is still in the works, and am about 50% to a workable version. So I will hopefuly have something in the next month or so.

As for things at home, my wife is still somewhat playing "doctor hot potato". We did managed to get an appt with a good bariatric doctor. He is doing some tests and in his oppinion, the Botox procedure done earlier was done in the wrong area to start with and wants to retry this procedure. Obviously, we would prefer a "final" solution. But if she can at least get some relief for a few months, possibly while they do more tests. At least things are moving again now.

Well I just got back from the gym and I am beat. I am currently doing some research on discount notebook computer and stumbled across your blog. Which cracks me up really. The internet can certainly land you off base sometimes. Even though your blog is not completely related I think it is a cool blog. I have read back through the archives and lots of people make some very good points. Well I have been on-line forever it seems. I need to continue to plug away at discount notebook computer. If you have the energy swing by http://www.note-book-computer.com. I try to update my site weekly and maybe you will see something you like. I already snagged your URL and put it in my favorites. If you do not mind I will be back again. Great job!

I honestly must say this is the best blog I have ever come across. I am not just saying that to kiss your butt! I am studying for my master degrees and spent the last 12 hours (and 12 cups of java) researching this area topic. Many blogs have generic information but yours is different. I can actually apply some of this information to my studies. No worries I will give you full credit in my references section. I took it upon myself to add you to my favorites and will visit back to let you know how my grade ends up. Thanks so much from!low price notebook computer.
