Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

CLR6Coder is definitely a better name than Visual BabyTalker, which was just unnecessary and inflammatory. However, I'd like to think that as time marches on, there are gradually less of those than Scott Belware implies recently. Personally I don't consider myself one, but I'm not on the jagged bleeding edge either... somewhere in the middle.

And while I don't necessarily agree (ok... not at all) with his post generalizing VB.NET developers, I have to concede that I've been somewhat remiss in learning C#. It's actually been one of my goals for some time, but with work and other projects getting in the way I simply haven't had the time to devote to it.

I think it's time to change that, so here comes the obligatory “know any good c# books?” question. I'm not looking for certification study guides or anything like that, just a good solid book on c# that I can work through and get a fairly comprehensive understanding of c# best practices, the programming modelĀ and (of course) syntax.
