I'm an Application Developer and Software Architect for a wide variety of software solutions including websites and desktop applications. Most recently focussed on a bespoke warehouse management system using C# 3.5 and SQL Server 2008.

Since my move to .NET I've become active in the community, attending monthly usergroup meetings and various conferences. I've even made a foray into speaking at usergroups about topics I am passionate about.

While I love experimenting with new tech and have a hobby project hosted on CodePlex, my current focus is less on specific new technologies and more on good principles and techniques.

When not at work I'm a family man, biker, amateur photographer, guitarist and of course, software developer.

comment External Blu Ray drive or internal + enclosure?
That was my question. One is a black box, the other is a SATA drive in an enclosure that "converts" as it were, SATA to USB. I was wondering if there were going to be driver issues, incompatibility issues etc. If the black-box solution is basically the same (albeit in a smaller box) then that's my question answered.

comment External Blu Ray drive or internal + enclosure?
That's fair enough. The point really was that there's a lot more choice for internal drives, and all the external ones are in terrible plasticy boxes.
