2008 Remix Australia registrations are now open

Title pretty much says it all, registrations for Remix are now open.

http://www.microsoft.com/australia/remix08/index.aspx

May 20th for Sydney and May 22nd for Melbourne. Costs $199 but you get a copy of expression studio worth $1,040. Judging by the sessions released from Mix in Las Vegas last month, this should be a great learning experience. I really enjoyed myself at Remix last year

I haven’t registered yet because I’m hoping my Imagine cup entry will be one of the finalists meaning I get to go for free!

Inserting records using LinqToSql

I wasn’t able to find any good examples on Google (they were all for old CTPs).
So to all that this may help, this is how you can insert a record into SQL using Linq (LinqToSQL).

NorthWindDataContext db = new NorthWindDataContext();
Product prod = new Product();
prod.ProductName = "The Dave Special";
prod.CategoryID = 1;
prod.UnitPrice = 24;
prod.UnitsInStock = 1;

//This is the line I kept missing
db.Peoples.InsertOnSubmit(prod);

db.SubmitChanges();

A shout out to Jordan Knight for helping me with this
