Two small items... one to appease me, one to potentially help a long-time visitor and friend.
First, there are many ways to get me to visit a site. Referral spam isn't one of them.
Second, if you are someone who uses Managed DirectX and are having a hard time wrapping your head around shaders, The ZMan is going to be doing a webcast for Microsoft on writing shaders and using shaders with managed code. Should be a good time for all. If you are interested, you can go here to register for the DirectX webcast.
