Born and brought up in Heptanesia, I currently live in Redmond. Though I work as a software engineer, Here I talk about everything that I find interesting including software. Everything here is my personal opinion and does not represent my employer‘s view in anyway. I reserve right to change my mind about almost everything I say, I am neither running for public office nor am I smart enough to have ever-lasting opinions (yet :))  hence the tag line “Deseprately Seeking Love of Sophie“. Other wise I am happily married with two kids.

Standard Disclaimer: I work at Microsoft Corporation. Everything in this blog is my own personal opinion and is not read or approved before it is posted. This is primarily a personal blog, although I will often write about my job and about the project on which I work.

    Hey man, do you know if there is anyway to paste an image from the clipboard into a silverlight control? I’m guessing you’d need to use 1.1.

    I love to see blogs like yours and hope to see more Silverlight stuff. I am bulding as a college project a Silverlight app and need more info about video players and streaming with Silverlight 1.1 . I am new to c# and silverlight and i’m kinda stuck with not many books about it.
    I don’t really like JavaScript. Would you please help me with any tutorials than can help me learn about using SIlverlight 1.1 and javascript? Cheers.

  3. Hi Vivek,

    I have been immersed in Silverlight 2 since the release (my wife screams “I want my husband back” as I write this). I played with the previous version but not enough to lose a lot of sleep over.

    Your blog has taught me a lot! You keep coming up in my google searches for “scaletransform animation dynamic silverlight 2” and other things that have been boggling my brain for the past 2-3 months.

    My only gripe about SL2 right now is a selfish one — I’m one of those 0.05 percent browser users who loves Opera. Not that I dislike the other browsers – FF3 and IE8 show tons of promse, and Safari 3 is really pretty snappy on a PC.

    One question – Is SL 2.0 final slated before the 8-8-8 start of the Olympics? The MSNBC Olympics site isn’t being done in 1.0 is it?

    Hi V,

    As a fellow Heptanesian, I congratulate you.

    Also, I have a small question. In Silverlight2 – Beta 2, I can’t seem to trap the MouseLeftButtonDown event.

    Any suggestions?

  5. Carry on Hepetanesian. I have just checked out PaxPlatform at Codeplex. Hope you’ll be able to find love of Sophie. I like your blog post on Silverlight very much.
