Hello again,

My bound copy of your book arrived the other day. What a beauty!

I've finished porting Snippy to COBOL. FxCop requested a strong name for the assembly, so the new name is COBOL the Barbarian:

Porting good C# to an underdog .NET language has been an interesting experience. I had to learn quite a few things about WPF first. The scary thing is that after 3 weeks of hacking away at it, when the sun goes down I now think in COBOL. Sun comes up, C#.

Thanks again for permission to port Snippy, and for the great book.

Re: Snippy ported
My pleasure - glad you enjoyed the book, and I'll check out COBOL the Barbarian when I get a free minute.
