ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings is obsolete

Yet another .NET transition error: System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings’ is obsolete: ‘This method is obsolete, it has been replaced by ConfigurationManager.AppSettings

Quick fix, change references of:

System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings[AppKeyName].ToString();

to:

System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings[AppKeyName].ToString();

YSOD (Yellow Screen of Death)

I was reading a post on Rob Howard’s blog and picked up some new .NET jargon. Ever heard of the Yellow Screen of Death? If you have, perhaps you share the same sentiments when I say that sometimes you almost wish for the good old Blue Screen of Death.

After starting work on a new .NET application, the friendly yellow screen has become increasingly familiar. If only I could hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and somehow know that the application would restart.
