Busy with PDFs

The publisher is working round the clock to provide me with the PDF files of chapters. I've to go through and provide them with comments. The details of the books are expected to be available soon.

Status – Book Project

Finally, the book writing book is successfully ended with the wrapping up of the final chapter 2 days back.I'm giving finishing touches to Appendixes. The book is already in production with the technical editing of nearly 8 chapters has been completed. I had to fight a long battle to finish the project. I had to rewrite the content twice.

I will post the name of the book after it is announced by the publisher.

Till then let it be secret.

MVP Award Package Received

I received my MVP award package today. The gifts are ok and I thought Microsoft will give something different this time.

Anyway, the package box is nice and smoothy

Wally’s Crosspost

Wally has posted some information about one of my article which appeared in November issue of asp.netPRO magazine. I also subscribes to the magazine but I receive the issue only by the end of each month. I think US subscribers will receive the magazine quite early.

Thanks Wally and I look forward to read my article.
