This week, I had the pleasure of driving out to Michigan to present MSDN Events to the developer communities of Grand Rapids and Detroit (Livonia).  We had a couple of "unanswerables" from the events that I would like to answer now and share with everyone:

Q: How can I consume custom types with My.Settings in VB 2005?
A:
This article discusses the My.Settings functionality in-depth and explores leveraging partial classes to extend the My.Settings functionality with custom types in code.

Q: When using the Logging Application Block in Enterprise Library, where in the code do we declare the LogEntry routing information?
A: The LogEntry "routing" is addressed with the LogEntry.Categories collection, which allows us to "tag" log entries so that the configuration settings can properly route them. See
this article from the Patterns and Practices team for more details.

Have a great weekend,
Jacob
