  1. Hi Michael,

    I’ve been here for several times and this is the first time of my comment. Yes, you’re doing really great work and they all are very useful for people. Thank you so much for all of your efforts.

    Now let me ask one question, i saw your name and website in there.


    It’s mean that you are trying to translate WP to Myanmar?
    And then i’m in too. I’m currently trying to translate WP.org to Myanmar Language. After that i’ll try to translate all other relatives to WP. I hope we can do something together for that. And please let me know how can i contact you?

    If you have something want to say, please drop a few lines to there. [myanmarne0@gmail.com]

    [Sorry for my English.]


  2. Hi Michael,

    I like your blog. Your blog is full with rich contents.
    Last week i just got the info from my friends how to install CAB on vista. (of course from your site).

    Thanks bro…. keep going…

    I have some qouestion to ask you about webcam streaming on web page

    Could you help me!?!

    I look forward to hearing from you

    Due to the security reason, you won’t be able to access the microphone and webcam from websites unless it’s a trust site. You will need to find other workarounds.

  4. Hi Michael,

    Thanks so much for being a font of information and solutions about Silverlight! Your blog has already been immensely useful to me in the 30 minutes I’ve been reading it.

    Been interested in Silverlight since it was WPF/E, stopped around Thanksgiving (work and holiday craziness). Seeing the DeepZoom stuff really put a fire under me again.

    A million or so years ago (er, 2001), I was doing a lot of stuff with VML and SMIL2 in IE 5.5, and wrote an article for Webmonkey about it http://www.webmonkey.com/webmonkey/01/24/index3a.html

    I’m so happy things have evolved since then vs. a collection of orphaned hacks.

    Thanks again, I’ll be visiting often.


  5. I don’t know if you relize this but in a lot of your help on the Silverlight forum, you come off as sort of condescending jerk. I chalked it up to an ESL problem at first but after seeing a few more, I wonder. Just a friendly heads up. The people going to the forums for help do appreciate yu help but not the belittlement.

    I appologize in advance if I am off here and it is just an ESL thing.

    Hi Alan Alda,

    I never say anything bad to other people. I never look down to other… Can you give me a link if you found some threads? I’m really surprise to get the comments like that.

  6. Hi,Michael!
    I have saw this post(http://silverlight.net/forums/p/14362/47303.aspx) you replied about saving control to image.
    I know that it doesn’t work because of security in SL(by the way,it seem that don’t serialize XAML as well in SL),but I do implement this function for requirement.
    So what else solution to this problem
    I urgently need its solution,thank you very much!

    thanks again

  8. my first silverlight application build progress takes too long time.
    cpu shows 100% – I am using msvs2008 on vista (home).
    so I have to close my IDE by killing its process or korner close button.
    after that cpu still shows 100% and I must restart my pc.

  18. Hi Michael,
    Congratulations for joining WPF/Silverlight Insiders. Unfortunately, this means you’ll be too busy to be posting. I like your posts because they are distinct from others.

    Since you are quite knowledgeable in the web development area, I would love to get an advice from you.

    I’m currently educating myself through:

    1. ASP.Net book
    2. CSS book
    3. C# book
    4. Silverlight Book and blogs
    5. SQL Server 2005 video training from CBT Nuggets.
    6. Javascript book (but recently stopped it. Too much to read).

    I have to say that I don’t have any real practical experience even though I’m a Computer Science graduate. From your experience, what do you think I should do to become a real web developer, And how long do you think it will take?

    By the way, I get a salary for doing NOTHING! (This explains the lack of practical experience). That means, all the 24 hours are up to me to divide. Yet, it seems time is not enough!!!

    Thanks in advance.
    ACE – well, not really :( .

  19. Mike,

    I just started a blog and need a theme made… I have all the design work done but I have no idea how to make this theme. The tutorials I’ve read make no sense to me at all, could you point me in the right direction to getting some one who could do this for me?

  20. Hi

    I posted 2 questions on silverlight.net (http://silverlight.net/forums/t/42010.aspx and http://silverlight.net/forums/t/42450.aspx) and it seems like nobody knows how to answer. So I created a demo project which I would like you to check out, why I get an exception:

    Could not load file or assembly ‘System.Runtime.Serialization, Version=, Culture=neutral,
    PublicKeyToken=7cec85d7bea7798e’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

    Is there a way to send a solution project to you by some email?

    Thanks in advance,

  21. Hi Michael,

    I see you are going the Silverlight way.
    I wish there were some other people we both know that could visualize as well the benefits of the platform :)


  22. Do you really want to lose you life? I am stating my opinion so please dont get mad. Did you know that, more than 600,000 deaths in the U.S. each year are from smoking-related illnesses. Just think about it. You could be one of those 600,000 people. Do you really want to risk that?

    Kylie :D

  23. Hi Michael Sync,
    I stumbled upon your site when I was searching for database connectivity using JS in google. Really you provided wonderful information. And then I started browsing other pages in your site and I felt that I should really compliment you.
    One suggestion I want to make is you are providing information regarding only .net related languages and packages. It would be good if we can find Java and J2EE related information also. I am interested in both of the technologies, by the way.
    Any how, this is a wonderful work from you, keep going!

  24. Hi

    I really like your spring scape design I use for igoogle, there’s something very cheerful and comforting about it. I think you should make the images available as prints or something, as they would be lovely for a child’s bedroom or something!


  25. Hi Michael,

    I love the way you explain stuffs around here, and extremely impress by how you spend your time to distinguish information within an article, high light important point by using remarked picture.

    It’s beyond awesome.

    Keep up the good work


  26. Mike,

    I came across your excellent article on CRUD with ADO.NET Data Services using Silverlight on the Code Project website.

    Has the code/content been updated for SL 2.0 released in October 2008 ? If not what changes are needed since I’m new at this.
    Your guidance is much appreciated.


  27. Just curious, why don’t you do this blog in silverlight? I Love silverlight. But, people I talk to often point out that the tutorial sites FOR silverlight etc. aren’t done WITH silverlight. Right before they say it can’t compete… They’re wrong of course! I took the silverlight challenge and now I pose it to you and your blog users: Walk the walk and do it all with silverlight.

  28. Hi,

    Nice man you are !

    So much of helping tendecny you got .

    Thanks and Kepp it up.


  29. Hey Michael,

    Hope you remember me and old days in GC…

    It was like memory revisited going through your blog and few images of you, phillu [i.e. Philip], Julia, Grace, lillian, Eve, and all….

    Really, it’s been a long time since we guyz have moved out and went into different directions.

    Its been a eventful journey for me and hope for you too. Please pass on my Hello to each one I know there….

    Would like to be in touch with all of you.. .
