Popup Provider for Silverlight

Hi everybody,

I just wrote a neat little piece of code and decided to share it on CodeProject. The code encapsulates common logic used for Popup controls in Silverlight. I just realized that I didn't go over the code that makes the popup work. Ah well. The downloadable source contains the Popup magic and the article descibes how to use it. So there.

My New Job

I have officially resigned from my current job. Yay! I have done so in order to start my own company with some old colleagues of mine. I am excited and scared and looking forward to having a lot of fun and working really hard.

One of the skills that I would like to improve which will be a big benefit to this new endeavor is my writing ability. Currently, this is all pretty dry isn't it? Well, that's going to have to change darn it. I'm hoping this will also improve my communication skills as a whole and maybe even drum up some interest in my new opus. In order to achieve these goals, I am going to make a renewed effort to blog more regularly.

I'm guessing my blog entries will contain mostly recaps of the experiences that I will be going through. Once in a while, I may try to offer up some insight into what happens when things go wrong. And hopefully there will even be a few posts about the things that end up turning out remarkably well.

I still have two more weeks to work at my current company; my last day is on May 15. Please check back to hear more about how things are going.
