A few things I learned today while instrumenting some binaries in preparation for performance profiling:

Resigning a .NET assembly is as simple as opening a VS command prompt and entering:

sn –R MyAssembly.dll MyApplicationKey.snk

Browsing the GAC through Windows Explorer -- open a command prompt and enter:

SUBST L: C:\winnt\assembly

Now you can browser the assembly folder using your L drive. This also makes it easier to reference a DLL in GAC inside a VS project.
