Best of the Shade Tree Developer Part II

About a year ago I hit a patch where I wasn’t able to blog much (something about finding a new job and planning to move cross country).  To bide time, I published Best of the Shade Tree Developer (with actual links!).  We’re starting to pull together kind of a “Greatest Blog Hits” for a cheap way to jumpstart the ALT.NET knowledge base.  Just to get some of my stuff pulled together for that effort, here’s what I think is my best posts from the last 15 months or so.

Don’t worry guys, I won’t put all of this stuff up on the new ALT.NET sites.
