You Too, Microsoft?

I had ordered a copy of the ASP.NET 2.0 VS2005 BETA release two weeks ago. And the order seemed to be in place. After a long 2 week wait, I got a mail from MS that they were out of stock. That is disappointing indeed. I should have been notified the moment I was ordering about the situation.

Somebody needs to teach Microsoft how to handle online inventory?

Hunting Delegates

Delegates was one of the toughest subjects to understand for me in .NET. This was because I found no good article anywhere in my vicinity. All the ones I found just jumped to the technical details blabbering the jargons. I usually do not vote for such articles (who needs my vote anyway!) and do not recommend to my friends either. Writing is a form of expression and if the audience cannot understand (may be I am dump!) what the author has expressed (or trying to express, for that matter), then the existence of such an article itself is to be questioned.

Well, to my luck, I found a really good article on web. I do not the know the author and neither do I remember the site address. I read it once and it just stuck on me. In fact, there was no author's name in it. The article explained Delegates so well that I need not had to read it again. As I have commented in my earlier entry, I am going to present Delegates in our user group meeting. If any of you are interested in knowing about Delegates, then please dive in.
