Thanks to all who wished me luck – and Collin, it took a *lot* of whining to get here and to stay here :p Actually, the new job (or the sub-contract rather) might not be materializing after all since there’s suddenly been a cessation of communication from the other end – of course, it could be just because of the weekend or it could be that they decided to go some other route. If it’s the latter, cest la vie :-) I did complete work on the CSVReader component but ran into problems in testing it out because for some strange reason, none of the Visual Studio .NET webform components show up on my machine at home. Of course, I’d upgraded that machine to Windows XP SP1 recently and had installed Visual Studio .NET after the fact and have not done any Windows updates on it since then (I’m on dial-up from home, what do you expect? :p) and so that might be the reason. I intend to take the code to work and see if I can make it work there since that machine has had Visual Studio .NET installed forever and has had all Windows updates applied except for Windows XP SP1 and IE 6 SP1 :p So I might be able to pinpoint where the problem is … I am already aware that I’ll probably need to do some debugging on the CSVReader component since I don’t think it’ll work right off the bat and so want to get this problem sorted, get the component working and then I’ll be done – unless I get the subcontracting job of course :p

Haven’t done much more in the coding-line since I’ve been busy with other stuff – since I prefer to keep this journal to just coding related matters, I guess you’ll have to go over to SM to see what else I’ve been up to :p
