Microsoft has released the first Community Technology Preview of the next version of Visual Studio here.

Note that this download is not for the faint of heart. According to this screenshot taken from the webpage mentioned above, it will take approximately 6.25 days to download with a 56K modem. Fortunately, with my bad-boy DSL, I got a 313 KB download rate and it only took about three hours.

There is one other catch: after you download this massive thing, there is yet another download containing the base operating system for the VPC machine. That download is another 1.1 GB. I'm nearly finished downloading this last chunk now. I'll post here if I have any trouble installing.

OK. I admit it. I have a problem: I am an iTunes junkie. It's always had its share of annoyances but not enough to keep me from using its clean and simple interface. Thanks to yesterday's release of iTunes 7, most of the minor problems are gone. A lot of the press is going to the new feature-length film and game support. But, in my opinion, its the little improvements that make this the best release yet.

The word is out. Thanks to Carl Franklin at PWOP Productions, Mark Miller now has his very own podcast called Millahseconds. This could very well be the end of Mark's professional career.

Of course this might be a very good thing for me. One way to increase your chances of a promotion is to get a job directly beneath the most publicly insane person in your field. I have the distinct privilege of having this position. Perhaps this is the beginning of vertical movement up the corporate ladder for me? Only time will tell...
