NHibernate 2.0 Release!!
Just read Ayende's post about it and thought I would reiterate. Version 2.0 of NHibernate (the awesomest ORM tool) is released. I've been using the alpha and beta and it is quite sweet (even in the alpha stages). You can get it here. Enjoy! ~Lee ......

Three Ways to Register Dependencies with StructureMap 2.4.9
I've been using StructureMap for my dependency injection container for a little while now and I wanted to discover all the ways (I could find) to register my dependencies.

Let me qualify that by saying that I DO NOT TYPE CORRECTLY! I am a mile-a-minute, hunt-and-peck typist. My fingers start our over the home row, but they do not move the way they're supposed to.
