Permutations in .NET

Permutations in .NET Dr. James McCaffrey provides a nice introduction to "permutations" along with some .NET to generate them. He further goes on to use permutations for security purposes, but that's not all they're good for. [Chris Sells]
Thanks Chris for the article I totally enjoyed it. Of course I'm a math person and I like that kind of stuff. I have allows wondered about a good, clean, efficient way to generate all permutations of a set, but I've just never really took the time to research or develop one. Dr. James McCaffrey did an excellent job of demonstrating this and gave a few examples of what you might apply permutations toward. So if you are interested in math things like I am I would recommend checking this article out.

Busy as a bee

I have not been online much the past 3 weeks or so, In fact I haven't even had access to a computer. 

After lots of planning and preparation I finally met Ramola’s (my wife’s) parents from India (of course I met them before we got married).  Once they approved of me we got married in a Hindu temple  (Click here for a picture) and also had a civil wedding. This all took place on July 18.  Instead of the usual honeymoon we had spent time traveling with her parents!!  We visited a few places like Washington DC, Las Vegas, and LA.  It was fun and stressful at the same time but it was a very nice experience.  I guess we’ll just have to go on a real honeymoon for our 1 year anniversary!

Now I just have to get moved.  This week I'm going to be moving to Blacksburg, VA, in preparation to start my MS in Computer Science at Virginia Tech.  Ramola is doing her Masters in Information Systems at Virginia Tech.
