Bullet Hell Tactics - .NET Awards

A friend and colleague (and current project member, actually) has created a game on the XNA platform. The game has been competing in various contests but is now nominated to .NET Awards, which is the arguable most prestigious award in the Microsoft community in Sweden. The game is called Bullet Hell Tactics and is great fun. Please download a try out version and then vote, vote, vote for Jens (Team Shmup) and his game on the .NET Award site

Black Dyke overture

The season has started for the brass band in UK and Black Dyke kicked it off with a tour of the Netherlands. Here is a clip from a concert. This is the overture! Listen to the playing and especially the soprano - just imagine to play like that and have two hours of the same before you. And listen to the reception afterwards - that could make you go on i presume. Also observe that the euphoniums turn pages after about 40 seconds - its that many notes! Cool!

Sandcastle - revisted

As i wrote earlier i have tried out the CTP version of Sandcastle. And it is a CTP by which i mean that it’s not a finished product. But i looks very promising i must say. One of the things i miss in Sandcastle (CTP) is an easy integration with MSBuild so that you can rebuild your documentation as part of your continuous integration. Sandcastle in itself is a bunch of tools to be used a the command prompt and they can (but not easy) integrated. Luckily this has been done for us already, through some well-initiated sources i found an application that builds on top of Sandcastle (CTP), that fills the gap surrounding MSBuild integration. I haven’t have time to try it out yet but will sure get around to it Also - from the same source, i got an performance tip that cut the document generation time from...

Morning devotional - by friend of mine

This week a friend of mine, Miriam Kjellgren, is featured on a radio show in Sweden. She is responsible for the morning devotionals in P1. She also is one of the wisest persons i know so the programs will be well worth listening to. You can listen to them for 30 days after broadcast here. The music in between is Enfield Band playing the Light of the World. Brass, Miriam, i am so impressed ;)

I’ve just registred, what i think is a quite good domain name: http://www.marcusoft.net/. And the blog is now found under that name. For non-techie people - here is the explanations behind the name: My name is Marcus - marcusoft.net I am a software developer (and mayby a soft dude too, i hope) - marcusoft.net I program in .NET - marcusoft.net http://www.marcusoft.net/ is quite like another computer related company, Microsoft So here you are - hopefully the site will be something more than the blog - but this is it for now.

Marcus - the model

The pictures from [last week's photo session](http://marcushammarberg.blogspot.com/2007/08/marcus-model.html) for Avega has arrived. I'll try make them smaller in a while - these are very big. Sorry. I am quite happy with the outcome - just think what some editing in PhotoShop can accomplish ;)

Baby - for real

As I’ve hinted in earlier post we are going to have a baby! In January 2008. Up to now a lot of things has been questions and guessing about how many, kind and most important health. But on Friday we went to an ultra-sonic scan and got to know a lot: There is one - there are a lot of twins in the family but that is up to another family member to handle as it seems It is a healthy person - and no we haven’t found out sex on it yet It was a quite astonishing experience - i couldn’t imagine that they move around that much. We saw leg movements, hand waves and even a full turn. I have though about gymnast but can’t figure out who of Elin and me that came from. So now we know that we can stay in our apartment for a...
