All Atlanta-Area CompUSA Stores Closing?


I noticed that CompUSA was closing about 1/2 their stores so I thought I'd take a look at which ones are closing.  Interesting it looks like ALL Atlanta-Area stores are closing. It looks like Augusta and the Alabama stores are staying open.  I would guess that the pressure from BestBuy has jsut been too much. The quality of their in-store help has been so bad the last few years that I am crying crocodile tears at their closing, but I am still surprised they can't compete in Atlanta at all.

Atlanta Code Camp 2008 Presentation Slides and Demos

As promised here are the slides and demo's from my talks at the Atlanta Code Camp yesterday. It was a great time and I got to see a lot of attendees and speakers who I haven't seen in a while. 

My big embarrassment moment was at the speaker's dinner when I saw David Silverlight and completely forgot who he was (i've met him a number of times).  When I heard he'd just flown in from Florida, I asked him, "Did you fly in with David Silverlight?".  He promptly replied, "In a sense, yes..."  I was so red faced.
