This is my first Geek Notes posted from NewsGator, so hopefully it will work well. I’m also experimenting with NewsGator’s Draft capabilities…
- Obsolete in Whidbey - Brad Abrams has posted a preliminary list of what will be obsoleted in Whidbey. This list is VERY subject to change, but should help you see what parts of the BCL to avoid moving forward.

- ASP.NET Connection String Tip - Carter’s Dad posts a nice little trick for managing connection strings in ASP.NET applications. Be sure to read the comments for the whole thing…
