The basement is coming along nicely at this point. I’ve got the walls framed, the electrical all in and about 20% of the drywall up. I’m going to try to do the rest of the walls this week and then this weekend I’ll rent a panel lifter and do the ceiling.

  • Active Object Pattern in .NET - Brian Button shows a very nice little implementation of the Active Object Pattern that lets you decouple method execution from method invocation when working with background processing scenarios. If you aren’t familiar with this pattern, you should take a look at Brian’s post and the PDF.
