New VB Content Strategist has started…

A while ago I moved out of the Content Strategist role and over onto the development team at MSDN, but until this week my position had remained empty! Well, the wait is over, Brad McCabe has joined the illustrious content strategist team at MSDN. No ‘official’ link to point you to yet, but I’m sure a blog will follow soon!

Of course, a google MSN search turns up a variety of articles and speaking appearances… even a bio!

As a side note, this means that my blog will be leaving the Visual Basic home page in the near future, so if you are interested in keeping track of my posts, you might want to bookmark my personal site at

Update: Of course, no sooner do I post that I don’t have a blog link, and he goes and starts a blog: đź™‚

  1. I found an interest bug with the Intel pentium 4.I think we are all playing the same game again like with the pentium 3. For some reason i am randomising VB with a Randomize now / (now / now / now) and this fractational math should enable the process to randomise, but for some reason my Vb6.0 DLL for Random Drug Screening Selection is not pickin a new random each time it starts. It is always producing the same result. You can find the source code on, just search the Visual basic section for ‘Simon Roberts’ it will be one of the titles in the list.

    Now with my fractal based encryption I think it is randomising more truely for keys as the key selector is working in a timer which means it will not always fire the same amount of times due to processor load and other system variables. But you cannot do this in a DLL without some difficulty.

    Oh well if you could have some more randomisation articles I would love to know more about your perspective of this issue, you can email me at I was possibly thing about setting up a UDP port server just to serve a Randomseed to the State Transit Authorities computers that need a randomseed.

    Got any comments.
