Hi Gary,

Absolutely we used Web services. Check out the sample app Lumos; we have both a 1.0 and a 1.1 (now known as 2.0) version w/ the online chapter.

I guess I don't think of Web services as synonymous with ASP.NET. In fact, with WCF, they're really not at all. I tend to think of ASP.NET more as Web forms, controls, and so forth--the GUI aspects, though of course you can validly argue it includes more.

Glad to hear the other book compliments this one. It's a shame when everyone does the same thing; reduces the level of combined knowledge. :D
