What I’ve Been Doing And What I’ve Been Reading
Well I haven't really posted in a while but I have good reasons, sort of. March went by quickly as I had to finish up an MBA class and moved apartments across the city of Chicago. April I really don’t know what happened but I’ve been working on some very good internal stuff and then here we are. I also do have some very cool stuff in the works for public consumption but that will have to wait. However I do have some other good stuff for you until I get it all going.
Ask PFE Platforms- http://blogs.technet.com/b/askpfeplat/ This is a new team blog myself and a few other folks started. We post every Monday and sometimes more than that. As you can see I have a few posts I’ve written over there so I haven’t been completely worthless. If you aren’t already reading this you should it’s a great spot.

What I’ve Been Reading For Work
Windows Internals 6th ed Part 1- http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0790145305930.do I’m slowly but surely working my way through this. The more Xperf performance tracing I do the more I need to understand this. There should be some other xperf related posted on Ask Pfe Plat in the next month…ish.
Windows Sysinternals Admin Reference- http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0790145316974.do If you are not familiar with the Sysinternal tools, you should be. This is a great book.
What I Will Be Reading for Work
Windows NT File System Internals and Windows NT Device Driver Development- https://www.osronline.com/custom.cfm?name=index_fullframeset.cfm&pageURL=https://www.osronline.com/store/index.cfm Because I just cannot get enough of low level stuff. I just ordered these today.
Inside Windows Debugging- http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0790145335500.do This should be out next week sometime.
Programming Windows 6th ed- http://blogs.msdn.com/b/microsoft_press/archive/2012/04/21/mark-your-calendars-programming-windows-sixth-edition-is-coming.aspx This one actually is $10 if you get it before June 1st. How can you not pick this up?
What I’m Reading for Fun
Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0743270754/ref=s9_simh_gw_p14_d2_g14_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0K2RHAPJ6GZY5CGHEQ3Q&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846
I just finished reading this long long book. It’s extremely interesting and extremely long. Get yourself an edition that you don’t have to lug around.
Set in the future but about today and the 80s current geek culture. I’m in.
DC The New 52- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_New_52 I’ve been really reading stuff in Comixology http://www.comixology.com/ since DC restarted all their series at issue #1. Warning its dangerously easy to just keep clicking buy on the next comic. I guess there are worst habits to have.
That’s all for now.
