Hi all, what a cool site!
Registered at another C# forum site back in 2013, but now there seems to be no trace of it! Edit: Oh no it was C# Corner!
After ploughing through a few chapters of Beginning Visual C#
back then, most of the material now is forgotten. But still have some examples from it along with VS10. It's a bit beyond usage now, but fairly quick and compact compared to the later Community eds. However the C99 bugbear is lurking in the background, and so will be looking eventually to replacing it.
