Via [Tablog PC] Without an optical drive to boot from, how would you get the Tablet OS onto the new drive?
Julie points out that if it ain’t got Intellisense, it ain’t a productive programming environment. Now, Pynk doesn’t even have cut-and-paste yet, so that comes first; and It should be possible to use reflection to get, not quite Intellisense, but something like a list of properties and methods that might be applicable to the current […]
James Kendrick nailed it. You can edit the Shark keyboard to use full words: Making a syntax-directed programming editor that much easier to contemplate.
Tech Blender points to this rumor that Longhorn will require 64-bit hardware. You know, one of the fairly easy lessons to draw from the 16- to 32-bit change is that it happened too late, that there was a great deal of pain because everyone tried to live with side-by-side APIs and “sort of” 32-bit versions […]
What would you do if you had more programmatic access to the Tablet PC TIP? Via [Incremental Blogger] I think the general answer to this is that I want to be able to control the TIP via something awfully close to Backus-Naur Form.

If you’ve never tried dictation, you can get a sense of how it works by watching a video screencast I made shortly after I installed Version 8 of NaturallySpeaking. The out-of-the-box experience was dramatically better than before via [Jon’s Radio] Not long ago I had a chat with one of Microsoft’s recognition guys (J. Pittmann) […]
Sheesh, I do a screencast (which is just like a podcast, only even more hip and cutting edge) of a Tablet PC program that I wrote in C# of an IDE that allows you to program your Tablet PC in Python and I don’t get a traffic bump from Scoble. How many more keywords does […]
When you’re struck with writer’s block, you’re supposed to just write anything. This is what I just churned out instead of my next column: I was awakened by my phone. You got used to that living on The Big Island. It’s already noon on Wall Street by the time the rosy fingers of dawn touch […]
