Lately we've been playing around with RIA services for Silverlight. Using them we lose the use of our stack, but the speed of development with them is quite impressive.
Watch and Learn
If you are unfamiliar with RIA in Silverlight, I would recommend this video: http://www.silverlight.net/learn/videos/all/net-ria-services-intro/. It is a complete walk through of creating a demo from the 'Business Application' template in Visual Studio for SL 3. If you are working in SL4, be sure to check the c...
Today I was in the process of making my own copy-paste Analog clock. I went aruond the internet and found this pretty thing. Of course I could have used that code and gone on with life. But that was not the point of the exercise. I wanted to learn something of this.

Rick here again with another little blurb on my most recent Silverlight project, KBay. Today, I'd like to write a little bit about what went right.
Separation of Power
One of the biggest attributes of KBay's success, IMO, was the segregation of development. My coworker Adam (Hi Adam!) and I handled the majority of the work for this project. The initial goal was to try to...
It's me again, Rick the Silverlight nut. I've been buried under a pile of work this last month and haven't had a chance to post much of the fun stuff I've been working on. But I've got a few minutes to write about my last big project. So I give you, the story of KBay
