If I have a favorite blogger and software author, other than Alfred Thompson, it would be Andy Beaulieu . Andy had done an exceptional job of describing how to make a shuffleboard game for Windows Phone 7.  This is a clearly done, with each step shown in depth and everything you need short of a Windows Phone 7 in hand.

Many tutorials, such as the ones on MSDN, skip steps, assume knowledge, etc. 

Not so in Andy’s case, and the case with most if not all of his writings.  So if you have a few minutes zoom over to this link:

Totally freaking awesome.
