Trying out NDepend



I have been using NDepend to analyze the latest version of my NExtra library. The code is spotless (this is where you should detect the irony), but the analysis is highlighting some interesting design flaws that I should fix in the next version.

Where do I put the logic?

    Slow iMac about to be fixed?



    I have been having big problems with my iMac 27″ (4GB RAM) that runs Windows 7 on a Boot Camp Partition (using VMWare Fusion). It is basically the same setup as I have on my MacBook Pro (which has 8GB RAM though), with the minor difference that the MBP is fast as lightning and the iMac is slow as HELL!
