It looks like the intricacies of higher-dimensional geometry will have to wait another week; I am incredibly heads-down putting the finishing touches on VSTO and the book that
Eric Carter and I are writing on VSTO. We're due to have it ready for copy-editing and indexing by the end of the month, so I know what I'm going to be doing this weekend, and its not barbecuing or sailing.

Speaking of books,
Joel was kind enough to do me the honour of choosing How Many Microsoft Employees Does It Take To Change A Light Bulb? as one of his selections for his new blogs-printed-out-on-dead-trees book The Best Software Writing. TBSW will also feature articles by Raymond and many other smart, funny, controversial and thought-provoking technical bloggers and will be available to purchase on June 20th.
It was hard to resist the temptation to read the galleys of everyone else's articles, but somehow I managed -- I'm totally looking forward to seeing what all Joel has chosen.
