Visually Studious

What with Mike now working for Microsoft he gets to buy cheap MS software. What with me now earning a decent wage, I can afford to pay for what I'm using, providing it's dead cheap.

So I picked up a copy of Visual Studio 2005: Professional for about £25 and have spent this evening installing it, downloading the latest version of MSDN and installing that. For some reason they provide it as three ISOs, but they also provide a simple tool for mounting them as drives, so it wasn't too much of a pain. And now it's all installed, so I can play with it when I've got some more free time.

Which won't be tomorrow, as I'm dropping into work from 2pm to help move some code into production. I didn't have to do it, especially as I've been off all week - but I'd rather be there when it happens so that I know it's all worked ok. And as it seems likely that I'm about to be made "GUI guy" for the whole project I really feel responsible for making it all work out ok. Plus, of course, I'll get a few hours of overtime - can't complain about that!
