Happy end-of-Daylight Saving Time, everybody! I don’t know about you, but I woke up at the proper time today. I like to think it’s because of my excellent sense of time, but in reality it’s probably because I use a real, reliable alarm clock for all of my waking-up business. Continue reading…

This is a great overview of the various methods of code invocation in .NET. I highly recommend reading it: Byte Rot: Performance Comparison of Code Invocation Methods in .NET.
Today’s quick tip is brought to you by the following error message:
