The best tutorial about data binding in WPF

It turns out that Microsoft's MSDN has the best tutorial around about how to do data binding in WPF. Everything is explained clearly; the diagrams, tables, and examples are just perfect. Double thumbs up. Waaaay better than many other online data binding tutorials.

Day of Silence

I sometimes listen to Pandora, a popular Internet radio site. Today, June 26, 2007, is the Day of Silence -- hence, no music streaming for the day. It's becuase "an arbitration committee in Washington DC has drastically increased the licensing fees Internet radio sites must pay to stream songs."

Pandora, along with a lot of other Internet radio sites are going off the air today.

There's something that music lovers (especially those who listen to internet music) can do. Call their Congressiona lrepresentatives and ask them to support the bill "Internet Radio Equality Act".


Just found out about LearnWPF.com today. It features some short WPF tutorials of some simple-and-common-yet-you-don't-know-how-to-do-it-right things. Some examples include data binding, creating image reflection (something like Apple's widgely used eye-candy visual effects), etc.
