      The group's called "The Gang of Four" and their debut album "Rhyme Patterns" will be out around the same time as Duke Nukem Forever.

      What, no harmony? I think you need some C# developers there to add layers of harmony, and get someone in the compilers team to back it up with bass; oh, and doesn't Microsoft have an orchestra? Tongue Out

      Good job! I particularly enjoyed the interview at the beginning! (We need more VB interviews Charles)

      Oh now that was good! Now I know what I'm singing on christmas to annoy my VB buddies hehe. [6]

      Now that put's a whole new perspective on the notion of "Coding as art".

      Thanks to everyone involved, and Happy Holidays!

      Wonderful video. Yet again Channel 9 in 2007 has played a key role in keeping me so rabidly enthusiastic about the .NET platform - I've learnt lots of stuff via your videos, been introduced and become seriously interested in topics I'd never have imagined learning about, all while being inspired and entertained. Tip of the hat to you all and may you all have a very happy and productive 2008!
      Kudos folks.

      Nice song. Smiley

      For the lyrics, I'll probably use "Next i" instead of just "Next" in order to consume the last note more smoothly. Tongue Out

      So it sounds something like:
      Next i~ End Sub End Mo-dule

      What does the question mark do after the Interger data type?

      Dim myvar As Integer?() = {3 * 3}

      Is this something new in vb.net 9?

      got it - Nullable type.
