Grasshopper thoughts

Ok so its march, where is the timegoing, there have been new versions of Code Rush, Refactor Pro, Test Driven and Nunit, we have code coverage now with Test Driven,so meny toys.
Anyway this was to say I am still here, the Pile database is moving forward but I have little to report, other than its more complex than I thought, although storing the data in a simular way to old dos stores stuff on a hard drive looks interesting as this uses a binary tree.
Other projects are a dvd database and a recipie database, both of which are long term and going forward at a snales pace, stoped projects are the simple financial thing, which I should get back to. 
I have also been looking at the windows workflow stuff, which could be good, Its one of those technologies that I look at and go great, now where can I use it.  and why,  lots to think of there.
so loads of grasshopper thoughts and things to do. 
Oh one thing I did learn.  how to enumerate over a generic dictionary of type dictionary<string, string>
like most programming things its simple when you know how

foreach(string key in _dictionary.Keys)


temp += _dictionary[key] + ", ";



The above stores a comma seperated list of the values stored in _dictionary, this is one of those things that has bugged me for ages, and it is so simple.
So thats it till next time.
