A Great Metaphor
I was doing what I typically do in my very small amount of down time I was reading my blog feeds from some of my favorite bloggers. One blog that I read religiously is Brian Button. I've had the pleasure to take part (a small one) in a C# design patterns group in NYC where on occasion Brian chimes in with some great advise and knowledge.

Avanade Integration Pack for Microsoft Enterprise Library & more...
If you are like me (and who isn't?) then you want everything in one place. You don't want to have to use 30 different tools that generally performs the same set of functions (MS is notorious for doing this).

I've only been playing around with it for a week or so and I like it alot. I also wanted to let you know that my buddy Hisham Baz recently finished his update for the ......
