I have been following the events at X-tensive.com and excited by the release of DataObjects.Net community license and new features in version 4.5.4.

DataObjects.NET ......

Today, We deployed the “David Blaine” version of the TB Module for our EMR solution here at IDI (http://idi.mak.ac.ug). This was mainly for bug fixes and usability improvements based on the feedback that we received from users in the past few weeks. Some of the improvements were related to performance.

I recently purchased the Kindle 3 and very excited to have this device that lets me read documents without tiring my eyes from the backlight. I can even let it read for me in a fairly natural way “when you get used to it”. I have also played some music using this device and perfectly understand that it was not designed to be some form of music player ......
