Old Trafford in Deep Zoom

Sometimes in life you get opportunities that you just have to take …. and one just came to this old Manchester United supporter … a chance to watch my team play from a corporate box against Arsenal … and I could take my son, Krysh, too!  We only needed a draw to win the Premier League (again) … and a draw is what we got! Like an earlier post, I took lots of photos and patched them together using Microsoft Image Composite Editor.  I love that tool!

Just in case you have never heard of Old Trafford .. it is in Manchester, England … just here:

Seattle Trip May 2009

I went to see the latest version of Visio last week at Microsoft Campus in Redmond, but, as usual, chose to stay in Seattle because it is such a great city.  I love to walk down to Pike Place market in the morning to ponder over which specialist food to select, or to smell the flowers as they are arranged for the day’s pickings.  So, with a piroshky (Russian pastry) and coffee I strolled to the little park at the end to contemplate the day.  The view across Puget Sound is fantastic and I wanted to capture it to share with my friends.  I only have a handy little digital camera, but fortunately, I recently became aware of a handy little application called Microsoft Image Composite Editor (http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/ICE/ ) .  MICE patches your photos together to make a larger panorama, and then you can export it into many different formats.

I have saved four panoramas for viewing using Deep Zoom in Silverlight 2.

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
