Ok let’s face; I did not walk from Manhattan to Connecticut, I took the train and drove my car. But normally I take the subway from 17th Union Square to Grand Central. Tonight I walked instead. I forgot how much I enjoy walking and taking pictures in Madison Square Park.
Entering the park:
An electrifying sculpture:
The Shake Shack:
A favorite building:
Grand Central Station:

Review of Microsoft’s Surface RT:
Filling in PDF Forms with ASP.NET and iTextSharp
The most powerful set of tools available to create your Windows installation experience.
WiX is short for “Windows Installer XML”. WiX Version 3.6 has one of the more interesting installers I have ever seen. The big button in the middle of the setup screen begins the installation process. The cog on the middle button is smoothly animated (rotating) during installation, and the button doubles as a progress indicator. I think the WiX team is using the installer to show off what you can do with WiX.

EPPlus: Create advanced Excel 2007/2010 spreadsheets on the server: http://epplus.codeplex.com/
Creating Reports in Excel 2007 using EPPlus (Header, Footer, Comments, Image, Formatting, Shape and Formula): http://zeeshanumardotnet.blogspot.com/2011/06/creating-reports-in-excel-2007-using.html
EPPlus has some minor bugs but is very useful. If you need to work with Excel workbooks and don’t mind being restricted to working to only XLSX files then I highly recommend it.
