Things to post

I've got a couple of things that I want to post about. I'm listing them out here more as a reminder to myself than anything else. * My comments/review of the Dayton-Cincinnat .NET code camp that took place Saturday. * All day Sunday, I...


Possibly the best error message ever

"Could not determine the type on the left side of the dot" Dave Donaldson inadvertently demonstrated this VS.NET error message last night while giving a demo of VSTS. How, you ask? In his own words: Keep in mind that “Generate Method Stub“ can...
