I specifically avoided mentioning when Scott Hanselman put me in his Essential Blogroll in his 25th Podcast (it was incredibly flattering, but I figured if you were already reading this blog then you didn't need to know that Scott was thinking good things about it!). :-)
But then he decided to cover Globalization and Internationalization with .NET in his 26th Podcast. And this is definitely a good one to see, since (like Joel Spolsky's The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Absolutely, Positively Must Know About Unicode and Character Sets (No Excuses!)) will be the best way to let some people know about internationalization stuff in software who may otherwise never hear about it!
Two small corrections in #25, Scott:
In #26, he covers a lot of interesting ground and goes beyond talking about .NET when he covers stuff like the breaking Notepad issue and IsTextUnicode. As well as info on Unicode itself.
Highly recommended listening, as are pretty much all of the Hanselminutes (as usual, I listen to all Podcasts by downloading the full .WMA file and then listening at 2x speed!)....
