Sharing my revelation over here
Yeah, I know who you are now thanks to Share Your OPML and I can write this secret message to you and not put it on the main feed.
Really, I am going to stop cross-posting soon.

Are you or do you know a VB6 programmer who is still worried about the leap, learning curve, etc. to .NET? To me the most daunting thing was not wanting to just do things the VB6 way when I moved to .NET. I didn't want to be just another mort. Well this looks like a REALLY promising series of webcasts that takes VB6 devs by the hand and shows them the real meat of .NET. Quoting Duncan MacKenzie
A series of 15 webcasts & lab exercises for the VB6 programmer... (see the full list here)

I will be making sure that not only everyone in my user group knows about this, but I will use my INETA connection to get this out to all user group leaders around the world.

The solution Explorer only displays it as a class and there is no way to access the design view of the form. The components all still exist in the code. It's a little bit of a heart stopper. But then removing and then readding the project from the solution brings back the form. 'Sup with that?

Ever since K.C. pointed to this brilliant visualization of Tom Lehrer's “The Elements“ song, I have been hoping someone with more talents than I would attack it from the CLR perspective. But alas. Here is my first crack at it:
System, data, SQL Client, Text and XML
Reflection and Collections, Port and Diagnostic hell
Windows Forms and Drawing, Web, U.I. and WebControl
and Timers, Threading, Logging. I.O., Ports and Protocols
Security, Cryptography, Discovery, Transactions
Configuration, Interop and Serial-i-zation
I don't know what's come over me, this constant revelation
It seems it's from a lethal redpill/koolaid combination
ok - lame ending but hey, I gotta get back to work
