It looks like my post from yesterday got lost: First, sorry that I've taken so long to respond--I don't really have a good excuse (I have several not very good ones: I was on the road for the last 19 days and got swamped with work).

I think that the right answer is to rebuild the examples from scratch. That's going to take me about two weeks, so look for a new set of code around the end of the month. I can use the input from these posts to create a set of examples that are easier to run (or run at all).

And, to tie in my post from today, it looks like the C# examples have the most problems so I'll start with them.

When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

Thanks for posting Peter. Your updates would be very much appreciated. Sorry if I was rude, but the initial quality of the book/code left me feeling I'd been ripped off. And I feel sorry for all other other poor sods who've wasted as much time as myself.

If you're interrested in posting changes in the errata section of this books info page - I'd be happy to re-read the book and send you some of the problems I've found.

What happened? Why did this get rushed out without being proof-read and tested? If it was your own fault - fair enough. But if it was the publisher, then let us know.
