Community Server 3.0 theming - too sweet

Nearly 3 months after Scott W piqued our interest with a tease about Community Server 3.0 skinning, Ben Tiedt has begun publishing his Introduction to Chameleon. According to Ben, skinning will be much easier in v.3 than it has been in previous...


One question about the iPhone

How long will it be until someone gets MAME running on it? Anyone up for a little networked Quake?


Say "Yes" to the Dayton .NET Dev Group!

Have you always wanted to go to a .NET users group, but just haven't gotten around to it? Do you currently occasionally go to CINNUG, but wonder what other local groups might offer? Do you just have nothing better to do on a Wednesday night than...
