    The Discussion

      Hi bob,

      I noticed that you use two different ways of creating file:

      - appStorage.OpenFile(fileName, FileMode.Create)

      - appStorage.CreateFile(fileName)

      Any significant difference between the two?

      @kctan: The 2nd one only creates a file.   OpenFile with FileMode.OpenOrCreate will either open it if it is there or will create a new file for you.  Just makes your code a lot cleaner.
