Pro Silverlight 4 In VB 181

jddp writes "MacDonald is a programmer's programmer, and Pro Silverlight 4 in VB is a model of what a programmer's guide should be. He explains a mass of technical information in considerable detail without losing the big-picture. His clear and concise exposition of concepts and functionality is never confusing or needlessly repetitive. The book's organization is logical, yet the chapters can be read in isolation, as the need or interest arises." Keep reading for the rest of jddp's review.

Actually they revealed massive criminal activity on a number of fronts already, and we've only gotten a small portion of them. The Iraq War Logs alone detailed enormous numbers of war crimes related to facilitating torture and killing civilians. The State Department cables, which we've only got about 1 percent of, already detailed a State Department plot (signed off on by the Secretary of State) to steal credit card numbers and passwords from top UN officials. That's a major crime under international and domestic law.

I've had people make the same argument to me against the WikiLeaks leaks in general, except with the Obama regime instead of the Mugabe one.

That embarrassing a corrupt government is going to lead to a crackdown is no real excuse not to embarrass them, as they're going to find an excuse to crack down either way.

If we're just talking about things being overpriced they could have given the spot to those bladeless fans from Dyson. £650 is too expensive, but the US price ($650-$700) is actually a pretty good deal, and the new aluminum unibody system is easier to self-upgrade than the old "stick a pizza slicer in the back until it pops" ones were.

backups: always in season, never out of style.
