It’s Been a While

Filed under: General @ 4:47 pm

The news about the orphaning of Silverlight hit me like a rock. I dove head first into Silverlight/MVVM a few years ago and had begun to feel like I could bend it to my will. I was disappointed, unhappy, and just sad about this news.

Pair that with a very bad case of "empty nest" syndrome (I really miss my daughters!), and I was too low to get excited about creating a blog post.

A few weeks ago, I began to feel the weight of this depression ease. After having some fun with a preview of VS 2012, a European trip with my immediate family, a week in Wisconsin with my extended family, and a long week-end at Comic-Con with my oldest daughter, I was starting to feel normal again. (See the Comic-Con pictures here.)

I’m glad to be back here, in the blog-sphere.

    Well I for one am certainly glad you are back. Indeed your blogs are like a crystal clear mountain stream compared with the rest of the murky torrent out there and your blog archive is one of the finest educational resources available. Keep them coming.

    Thanks to you both for your kind words. They help keep me motivated!

    Missed your posts. Thanks for writing about Studio 2012, just had time to test it.
