The Good, The Bad and The "You must be f'king kidding"!
This weekend has been fairly interesting! The Good The weekend started great; left work early, picked a kitchen for my new house then bought a 40" Sony Bravia LCD HD telly!! Woohoo, finally get rid of the big 32" block sat in the corner and we can upgrade to Sky HD and see what all the fuss is about!

Enterprise Library April 2007 Released.
I have just clocked that the Enterprise Library has been released; you can download it here I am quite new to using the Enterprise library and I don't use all of it but there are distinct advantages to using it when developing Enterprise (!) size applications.
