Two months later...

Hello! It seems I have not posted in almost two months. Life always gets interesting. My in-laws and oldest daughter visited. Then there was the flu, head colds, and administrative issues... so my tinkering slowed down to nothing. I've barely even managed to explore my Christmas present: a Playstation Classic.

I have lots of topics I could write about, because between work and personal enlightenment, I've touched on a lot. I am more than happy to take direction on what to write about - because often times I tell myself no one reads what I write so there is no hurry in getting things down.

Cortana

I did get to push out work related samples on building against bot framework v4. It is different enough to cause people grief in upgrading, and v4 is slightly more complicated and less documented than v3. I've been thinking about writing a guide or giving some sample "search and replace" scripts to help. But that also seems too close to work to use my own time. So expect to see more Cortana stuff here:


Unfortunately I hit a policy blocker on publishing skills - that has seen all my Cortana pet projects delayed or shelved.  However, I am happy that Safety Moments averages 6 requests a day on Windows.  Thanks to those who are using it!

Google Actions

I am happy about how Art of War is doing.  It gets about 60 users a week and sends about 200 messages. When I have time, I intend to get Colossal Cave launched on Google.  It was so close to being done on Cortana, and the server is written in Java and platform agnostic.
