Did you know that you can nest #regions in VS.NET?  You can create hierarchies of regions...seems obvious, but it wasn't to me.  Thanks to Rocco for the tip.

Adding Pre- and Post-Build Actions to Visual Studio.NET 2002

We have VS.NET2002 a project that hasn't been updated to VS.NET2003 and logisitically can't for a few weeks.  However, we had a need for a post-build file copy.  It's a large Online Banking project (since we do eBanking here at Corillian) for a very large Financial Institution, so there's lots of people working on the project at once.  Ordinarily the project is built with the increasingly snazzy NAnt so these post-build processes are no biggie.  However, sometimes you'd just like to do stuff from VS.NET. 

We looked the two obvious ways:

So, between a rock and a hard place, we'll use the Custom Add-In for a few months then upgrade and VS2003.  It's all good.

Win2K SP4 is up and out.  A quote from NTBUGTRAQ:

"Downloads, readmes, etc... all available, not limited to Premier customers, no "Confidentiality" clauses, not June 30th, no broken parts (hmm, have I missed anyone's claim?)"

Go get it...or better yet, get Windows 2003 Server.
