The Hottest Spot North of Havana

It's a very hot day in Toronto. So how hot is it? It's a couple of degrees hotter than hell, but surprisingly still cooler than Austin, TX (home of roller hockey champion Chris Aniszczyk).

Speaking of hockey, I am heading out to Edmonton tomorrow morning where the Edmonton Oilers are in the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1990. It will be a good time.

I will be on a week-long working vacation. It's a working vacation because it is RC7 week, and we, on the PDE team, decided to rewrite the entire PDE guide from scratch and give it a brand new format . It's a crazy task. How crazy is it? It's Paula Abdul-crazy.

The new guide is shaping up to be great though. It's very detailed and will take you behind the scenes to explain to you the rationale behind choices we made in the tooling.

Watch for it in the RC7 build coming out this Friday.

I am going to try and refer to as many things as possible as "Paula Abdul-crazy" for the next week...

I'm sitting on the edge of my seat in eager anticipation of the new tooling and the new guide!

Give the Oilers my love, even though I'm a Leafs fan. But hey, Canadian hockey is Canadian hockey and we don't have enough hockey over here.

On the other hand, the weather is absolutely beautiful ;-) (That is, after a montage of angry nimbii and pouring rain)

Enjoy vacation! :)
