So here's the deal... I'm working inside what a fellow developer called a 'Draconian' environment. .NET 2.0 is the 'standard' although I installed 3.5 SP1 on this box (and either ......

Silverlight Cream back on the grid
Sorry for the absence from the blog and no Silverlight Cream. I took a week away from everything.
