Handy HttpPostedFile & HttpFileCollection abstractions
I've just upgraded to the latest version interim drop of the MVC framework and MVC Contrib (which I can't seem to build from source using NAnt...). Everything appeared to be ok, except for one thing: a controller action that uploads a file was now throwing an error: cannot convert from 'System.Web.HttpPostedFileB... to 'System.Web.HttpPostedFile' After a few seconds of confusion I quicky dawned on me that this might be a very good thing. A quick look at the System.Web.Abstractions confirmed my throughts, ......

New to Design Patterns?
Have all your Desgin Pattern woes solved and more: As a general rule of thumb, keep in mind that your code instantly gets 270-890% better when using design patterns (unless, of course, you are programming in Perl or Assembly). Note also that design patterns let you score big time with the ladies at parties (unless you abuse Dependency Rejection pattern), increase the size of your member, make you a better driver, and level you directly to OT9. Made my ......

TeamCity and NUnit 2.4.7 *Updated*
If your on the ALT.NET mailing list, you probably seen the argument debate of the choice of CI Server. I've always used CC.NET, but decided to give TeamCity a whirl last night. Overall I'm impressed, but I'm having a problem running my tests. I'm using the latest build of NUnit (2.4.7) and Team City returns an error : Failure executing test(s). If you assembly is not built using NUnit version, then ensure you have redirected assembly bindings. Consult the documentation of the <nunit2> ......
