Loving Regular Expressions
I've always been a fan of using tools for certain tasks, especially if they help facilitate your learning of the underlying technology. That's actually how I got started with the web - I used a tool made available by AOL called AOLPress that ran on Windows 3.1 (I'm dating myself here) that was effectively a WYSIWYG HTML editor that also let you see the HTML as it was generated.

Outlook 2007 and the Battle for Backgrounds, Part 1
As a web marketing firm, my company manages to generate quite a bit of e-mail for our clients (all opt-in, of course), and one of the ways that we do that is by templating out the entire HTML e-mail into a user control. The nice advantage to this is, of course, that we're able to pull in whatever kind of data we need and basically treat the e-mail like a page. Our production team can generate some really great artwork and layout, and up until this point it's worked great. They've been doing extensive ......

My name is Rob, and I'm a Senior .NET Developer with Terralever, a leading marketing and interactive development firm located in Tempe, AZ. I have a wide range of interests, including but not limited to the Windows Presentation Foundation and Windows application development, rich web applications leveraging technologies such as AJAX, and, well, any number of other fascinating things I can do with C# and the .NET Framework that I couldn't even imagine happening only a few short years ago ......
