SQL Azure Data Sync is a great tool; even though it's only at a CTP stage, the experience is already quite polished and it's a pleasure to use. I've used it to export a database (schema and all) from an Azure subscription to my local machine; I needed to take my services offline for a longer period of time and had to create a full backup. (Perhaps this wasn't the ideal way to do that. But it was fun! )
On that note, it would be nice if Windows/SQL Azure subscriptions would support "deactivating" a service or database, respectively. I would like to be able to store these things (perhaps in my Azure storage account) with the ability to bring them back online at a later date. (Added to the linked UserVoice site: Allow taking a database offline to prevent charges to my account. (http://uservoice.com/a/jFr6r))
The 'Fast Async' link seems to be broken.
Enjoying the series! (Especially the dependency injection w/ Entity Framework - I wasn't sure if that was possible, and it's the biggest reason I've held off on using EF until now.)
Nitpicker's Corner: Your media download links for this post are not in the standard order, so I ended up (almost) downloading the MP3 or the MP4 instead of the WMV version. C9 devs, you've gotta get that fixed or I'm going to suffer motor memory loss.

Agreed. Whoever is contributing to Yuri's deadlines needs to go on vacation for a while.
It is sad... This was one of the great classics on Channel9.
What happened, Charles/Ron?

Yeah, now that the VS2010 release cycle is over we can get back to the good stuff. (This from a very happy VS2010 user.)

Definitely looking forward to Category Theory, but especially to more Algorithms & Complexity with Yuri Gurevich. I agree with Smorg - these are THE reason I subscribe to C9 RSS!
