VSS & CVS

Chris Kinsman: "I am so fed up with Visual SourceSafe that I tried to install CVS over the weekend. I got it working by and large but talk about a painful process." I'm no CVS expert, either, but I learned enough in a couple of days to get around doing...

Book Suggestions

I'm looking into buying a few more books, as I received a few nice Amazon gift certificates for my graduation (in case you really want to know, I'm finally getting my bachellor's degree tomorrow!). So I'm really looking for some good suggestions on which books to get, and which books...

More on XSLT Extension Objects

Drew: Regarding ResetableIterator, I'd certainly call it a flaw. It kind of defeats the purpose of having those nice abstract classes and interfaces in the first place.
