Interesting comment.

Anybody have recommendations (and warnings-off...) for books on C#, .NET,
and associated gubbins? (ASP.NET, ADO.NET, Windows Forms, ...)

I'm guessing that I'll need a good half-tonne of dead tree if I'm to get a
grasp of it <0.5 wink>.  Figuring out *which* half-tonne might be even
more time-consuming than reading that dry mass, though...
