WHAT’S YOUR HIDDEN TALENT?
It’s not apparently obvious from speaking with me from a short time, but I have the uncanny ability to tell dumb jokes and otherwise drop the punch line of good jokes (the more awkward it makes others feel the better). It is a technique I use to disarm other people.

Telepathic powers would enable me to understand what people are talking about when they jump ahead in the conversation to something they assume would be the next logical step. I often don’t agree with their thought process and end up thinking about something else. Additionally it would be a lot easier to make new friends if I could tell what they are thinking without having to use awkward conversation.

The .NET Compact Framework is a subset of the .NET Framework that has been optimized to run on embedded systems with limited resources such as the R9 family. Visual Studio provides a standard interface for debugging application code; however, there is no built-in method to aid in analyzing memory usage. This makes developing memory efficient applications a real challenge. Fortunately, Microsoft has released a set of tools that will aid in identifying and isolating problematic code and memory leaks: Power Toys for .NET Compact Framework.
