Contest & WebCast info

There is an Add-in writing contest going on over at http://weblogs.asp.net/rosherove/archive/2004/04/21/117663.aspx. They are giving away some great prizes - including a copy of our book that I will sign.

I just finished up my web cast. It did not go as well as I would have liked, it was not too bad but it is a lot different than talking to an audience at TechEd or PDC. It is a bit odd talking to the wall without any type of feedback about how you are doing - you can usually tell if people understand what you are talking about when they are in front of you. It also did not help when, about 10 minutes before it started, I started getting some popping in my ears - not sure why but it was very distracting.

During the talk I was passed a link to where you can find the IDs to use for bitmaps on command bars, it was at http://officeone.mvps.org/faceid/index.html. I am going to try to post my version of the bitmap lookup tool, as well as sample code from the Web Cast within the next few days (most likely over the weekend). So check back soon...
