So, wanna know how to drive me crazy?

Here's one way:

I started up my VS2008 installation, and started a new C# project. I've not played with 2008 much yet, so was giving it the "once over". I wanted to include a shortcut to the System.IO, so I attempted to use the using System.IO.

It didn't work.

The using statement wasn't recognized, and I couldn't get the System.IO to show in my intellisense. I was thinking WTF???

I thought that somehow 2008 had changed where and how we indicate such shortcuts. I looked in the IDE, online, read a book...for what seemed like hours. By the time I was done, I was annoyed and frustrated. I cursed MS for creating another version of the IDE to learn.

That's when I realized I had selected to create a new VB project instead....

Yeah, this was my brain fart moment.

Hoping you are doing well. (BTW, in my last assignment I delivered over 6000 automated unit tests along with the components for the application. Testing can be a drag, but it's great to know that you are delivering software that really works!)
