Changes under the Verandah
Some sad new from last night - Michael Boundy and Kathy Pike have decide to move on to other things.
I was sure I’d blogged about the band I’m in, but searching back I can’t find any posts - oh well.
I’ve known Kathy for a really long time. I can even remember her riding her bike in a CTA TV ad - that must have been late 1970’s/early 80’s! Anyway she’s going to explore other things.
Michael too, has decided that it’s time for him to leave. I remember being pleasantly surprised when I discovered that Michael is “The” Michael Boundy from late 80’s Adelaide band Seven Stories. They had some pretty good chart success - I can certainly remember hearing their songs being played on commercial radio around that time. And now I can say I’ve played in a band with him!
I know I’ll see Kathy around the place, and maybe bump into Michael along the way too. It’s also a chance for those of us left to rethink where and what we want from the group.

A HttpModule that moves ViewState to the bottom
I came across this via LarkWare News - it’s a HttpModule that moves the ViewState data in the HTML down to the bottom of the page.
The idea of doing this is that the browser then gets to render all the regular page content before it hits the ViewState blob.
Looking at the comments, there appear to be a few small problems, but it could be a useful thing to use on ViewState-heavy pages once it is more robust.
