8am and The Managed Extensibility Framework

Brad Abrams can always be relied upon for a great post - and the latest whizzy thing to come from Microsoft is the Managed Extensibility Framework. I know this is a good thing, because Ayende and Sidar blogged and told me it was.

In his simple step by step run through, Brad shows some of the benefits of MEF to those kind of applciations you have to plug together ... but for the life of me I cannot understand a word of it ... I'm pretty sure it isn't Brad, and I'm pretty sure it is me ... 8am really isn't a good time to approach this stuff. It isn't helped by MS calling it the "Managed Extensibility Framework", but Brad referring to it as the "Managed Extensions Framework"

On a similarly related note, I decided to sign up to Twitter last night to see if anything interesting happens there (I left my mouse in work, and couldn't be bothered to use my laptop glide pad, so I was playing on my iPhone, and Twitter came up in a search, and ... well you know how this goes). Anyway ... the main reason this is related is that one of my first comments to Twitter was "6am sucks" ... well 8am hasn't got any better ... and I strongly suspect the day is going downhill from a bad start. Ever have a feeling it was going to be "one of those days" ?

I've had plenty of such days... I find that there is only one real solution; beer. :)
