Stuff - mainly geek, a little diabetes, some rant. Possibly all three in the same post. Basically anything I find interesting and/or worth sharing.
These are my personal views, unless I've been hacked.

Creating a Console App in Visual Studio Express 2012 for Web
I've installed and am using Visual Studio Express 2012 for Web as my primary IDE for C#. There isn't a template for a console application, so if you want 1980s goodness, create a new class library and on the Properties page, setting Output Type to Console Application, like this
This then allows you to create a class with a Main method
and run the app with a push of F5
**UPDATE** I have created a project template that creates a console application, it's available on github, here with instructions on how to install it.
