Note to all SO beginner:

Please read (and embrace!) Jon Skeet's helpful hints on how to write a good question (or at least his short version here ) - one that has a chance that someone can answer it.


A Pascal/Delphi programmer and database freak at heart, I work as a C# developer on line-of-business applications (mostly ASP.NET).

I'm interested mostly in distributed systems (WCF), database (design and SQL), and Active Directory.


I'm an MCPD .NET 4 Web Developer, MCPD .NET 4 Windows Developer, MCPD Enterprise Application Developer (.NET 3.5), and MCTS for WCF, ADO.NET, Winforms and ASP.NET.

Yes - it was a German CD-/DVD-burner called Free Disc Burner and that URL it sends me to is a lame search site, http://www.delta-search.com

comment Windows 8 Installation Issue
Ah - I am using the Win8 RTM Trial version - and I just couldn't get it to work in Oracle VirtualBox, had to use VMWare Workstation 9 instead. Works like a charm there! THanks.
