Back from a week off

Today was my first day back in the office after a week off in the run up to my daughter’s second birthday (where has the time gone!)

It was a week at home so i was still connected to the goings on in the blog-o-sphere (and i even attended an AMITPRO meeting (Vijay already blogged about Richard Tubb’s move to linux)

As well as being the week of my daughters birth another milestone passed (come on i couldn’t think of any other way to blog about this….)

Microsoft finally ended extended support for Visual Basic 6

I know there has been an effort to keep VB6 alive but it’s final passing was pretty quiet (i only found this article)

It’s done pretty well to keep going since 1999 to present day and Microsoft have said they’ll continue to support the runtime for the time being. I’m not sure how long that will last past the next version of windows (unofficially windows 7 at the moment?) though

Anyway back to the day job.

Our new employee started today so this marks another milestone in the history of the company!
