This has happened a few times, so I thought it would be worth mentioning.

  1. I love comments. I try to blog more than "check out this link" posts. It takes a bit of work. Knowing folks are reading is great. But...
  2. If you're saying more than "interesting post"--if you have comments or questions--please make sure I have a way to contact you.

Oleg Mihailik made an interesting comment about my NotifyWorker post:

As long as you are already using the delegates, you can use closures (local variables) instead of creating artifical types to hold them.

Then you'd have to provide 2 parameterless delegates: one for work item and another for 'OnCompleted' logic on GUI thread.

That simplifies out the packaged parameters' class, AND eliminates the exception catching work by design.

If they care enough to handle exceptions, they'd do it in conventional and readable way: by enclosing the dangerous part in try/catch. And then, they can reflects it in exactly the same 'OnCompleted' delegate.

I have questions for him and I have no clue how to drop him a line.

If you'd like to chat (or talk job offers) please send me an email.

My obfuscated address--edeya9902(at)sneakemail(dot)com--in the left pane, is meant as a test. If you can't figure it out or don't want to go through the effort of doing the manual copy-paste-replace, we probably shouldn't chat.

Or if you post a comment, just make sure you link back to a blog with a contact page. That's more than sufficient.
