While I don't do anywhere as much with 3ds Max as I should, I do like to keep learning about it and playing with it every now and again.
One of the most useful resources I've come across in a long time is Jamie Gwilliam's Blog: Jamie's Jewels. Jamie's recently been running a series of "Quick Tips" on his blog which I've found to be incredibly useful, and he also occasionally runs competitions where you can win the odd bit of Autodesk/3ds Max branded or related gear.

Pete Crispin's a London based Marine Surveyor, who consults on both commercial and private vessels, and operates worldwide.
I've been working on a couple of Proof of Concept demos for a client that's looking to implement a Single Sign On solution on their new site, and one of the offerings was from Symplified. Seeing as there doesn't appear to be much out there on this, especially within an ASP.Net context I thought I'd write up my experience.
