My new PC with Vista Ultimate

Yesterday, i got my shiny new Dell computer with "Windows Vista Ultimate". It is just awesome. It's quite alrite spec machine with Core 2Duo Processor (2.0 Ghz), 2 gig of ram and a 256 mb Nvidia turbocache graphics card.
Windows Vista Ultimate is surely ultimate. It is mind blowing. my favourite key is the windows key and tab, to show multiple windows. The gadgets are obviously cool.
I arranged a short "Windows Vista Launch Event in Croydon". It was nothing official, i just named it as such. My collegaues came over to my palce after work and played around with vista. Even non technical guys are coming today evenning to have a look. Everyone's welcome to come and have a look.....

Creating custom cultures in .NET

Recently i have been using CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder class to create custom cultures in .NET.

With CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder class you can define a custom culture that is new or based on an existing culture and region. You can specify the culture and region information for example the associated language, sublanguage, country/region, calendar, and cultural conventions to great detail by using specific CultureInfo and RegionInfo classes. The custom culture can also be installed on a computer and subsequently used by any application running on that computer.

I highly recommend using this feature in .NET to create custom cultures for the application.
