Subject: Ded Moroz sends you links on sample projects... :)

Hi All --

New Year Eve is approaching here, and I wanted to send you some gifts from
Ded Moroz - here they are:

This is a set of projects I have got developed a few days ago during 40+
hours R&D coding marathon.
The task was to finish all the work in about 40 hours.
So a few bugs left in there as release deadline wasn't possible to move.
They (the bugs) are described in readme.
But in general all the sample apps work rather well as my tests here show.

I'd be interested to hear any comments - in what direction that sample
should be better developed.
Please write them here, or on http://northwind.codeplex.com .
Please do not "judge severely" as as I noted that was very intensive R&D
work with little time to think through while coding :) But feel free to
comment it as you like.
*Do not try* to  be politcorrect.

I wish all of your Very Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Thank you.
