I am back home after 2 weeks spent in a road trip around Sicily, Italy. We had a great time, and I will document the trip gradually in the next few days on my PhotoAlbum. It was really nice to let go for a moment, and I barely did anything work related (except reading 4 chapters of Adam Nathan’s WPF book and catching up with blogs during the last hotel stay of the trip). I found no wireless connection during the trip (except once in Taormina and then in Palermo) but I didn’t look for them either. I really needed a break and it was good to think of nothing but the sun, the sea, the antique monuments, the excellent food, and having no harder decision to make than choosing if I wanted red or white wine with my dinner (my wife doesn’t drink so I enjoyed the ‘vino della casa’ alone).
In two weeks, we drove from Palermo to Marsala, Agrigento (after an unwanted stop in Palermo again), Caltagirone, Siracusa, Catania, the Etna region, Taormina, Cefalu, Bagheria, Monreale and then Palermo again. More details soon!
VS2008 Beta 2 and Silverlight 1.0 RC1
Seems that I came back just in time to download and install Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 and Silverlight 1.0 RC1 so I am going to start the download and install later. Apparently you can install VS2008 Beta 2 without uninstalling Beta 1, so I’ll take the plunge and try it. Wish me luck!
