    I use the My namespace all the time.  It is a great thing to remember newbies!

     

    Thanks Bob for the command line Arguments and the

    My.Settings.Save

    I never knew about that!

    Hello. First of all thanks for a great series. One question what happens at 12:31? The names shown in the console window show Brian and Chuck but the names assigned to the settings were Bob and Steve (11:44). Brian and Chuck were assigned later approx. 13:30...

    @Kari Holgarsson:  Great catch.  I think you caught me here pulling a slight-of-hand ... I actually ran through this exercise off camera once (a practice run).  I think the values were cached somehow -- perhaps those values were cached in the output directory (/bin) somehow.  I **forgot** about this otherwise I would have probably re-recorded it.  If you write the code yourself during this exercise, you will get the correct results.  Sorry for the confusion.  Sad

    Ok, thanks for the explanation ;-) I will try the exercise myself, I was just wondering if some values could be "stock" in memory (unable to update) as this could be very difficult to debug in a more complex code.
