Why is waiting so hard sometimes...

You know the feeling - sitting there waiting for the phone to ring... watching the seconds tick by...

Now the usual Sunday afternoon version of this feeling has the second-hand on the clock moving with all the speed of a dead snail...

But when you're waiting on a client to sign off your work so that it can go live, then that long, thin hand is a veritable blur around the dial!

Anyone care to discuss the maleability of time within the framework of our perseption?

Or how about a beer?! :-)

Google is great... Goodle is wonderful... Google sucks...

Ok - so I like google.

Actually, I like it a lot - 80% of the time, it provides me with exactly the information I want on the first page of results. Perfect.

But then sometimes it doesn't.

Take today - I'm desperately trying to find out how to make a business object, written in c# for .Net, appear on the toolbox in visual studio so I can drag-and-drop it onto a web form.

Should be pretty simple, right?

Well, it WOULD be if the business object was to render something to the page - but I want a non-visual object that works just like the SQLDataConnection et al components.

And can I find anything helpful? Can I £@$&!

All I can think of is that the coding incantations for this type of magick are of such worth that they're the most closely guarded secret on the net!

So yea, Google is great... Goodle is wonderful... but just sometimes Google sucks.

Of course, any hints would be greatfully accepted!

Well here we are....

First posting to my new blog... Darn that Dan H for suggesting how cool Blogger is!

Of course, now I should really get back to work - bug-fixing the next release of the ECommerce site I've been working on for the last 2 years.

All in a day's work...
