Watashi no "IL Code" seksu desu
So, I may not be entirely up on my un-couth Japanese sayings, but one thing is for sure, IL code, to the average developer (Read: Me) might as well be written in the same Romaji thats in the title. That is, it's hard to make heads or tails of, and since you most likely never, or only rarely look at it, you get very little opportunity to actually study it. I've been the same way for the past few years, acknowledging that IL exists, and just like that ugly friend, I don't actually acknowledge there ......

Central Ohio Day Of .Net
It's that time of year again. Where the snow hasn't quite gone away, and it's still cold as Steve Job's gaze. Which means it must be time for a Day of .Net event! WOOT!
