No I haven't been that busy.

I just wanted to point this out to those of you who have kids the contest that Microsoft is having.
They are asking kids K-12 to design the rocket of tomorrow ( winners get their designs converted into real 3-D models)

Now if they would just have a contest for the adults....

Sounds cool, but when you go to the site it seems that this is just a marketing ploy to get people to install (buy?) Microsoft Silverlight, whatever that is.

Silverlight sucks. I hate sites that use it. But I no big fan of Microsoft either.

It's Microsoft's version of a Flash-like environment. Nothing to buy though. It's free to install.

If you have kids I recommend installing and submitting a rocket design. There are prizes for age groups K-12 . I like that any company would be promoting Rocket design even if it's Microsoft.

It's completely free, and meant as a competitor to Adobe Flash. It's not great, but neither is flash.

If it is promoting rocketry then seems like a good deal. Don't see that much anymore.
