Attachment Detachment!

Ken Getz is no slouch when it comes to coding. The “Access Developers Handbook” series by Litwin/Getz/Gilbert was a classic. Few books covered the material so well or as comprehensively. I just pulled my Access 97 version down from the bookshelf. Ah, Access we had some good times! Right, that’s enough reminiscing!

It’s therefore reassuring to discover that developers of Ken’s stature occasionally make the same kinds of mistakes as the rest of us! As testament to the fact that the .NET framework is, in the words of Michael Palin as the chaplain in ‘Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life’, “…so very, very Huge! ..”, Ken posted this article.

Ken’s advice is worth heeding:

“A word to the wise: If you find yourself writing .NET code which seems like it
sure as heck ought to have been included in the Framework, take a few seconds
and try to convince yourself that it's not.”
