case you haven’t checked out the new Atlas preview release yet
(which given that it shipped a few days ago and almost everyone is on
vacation this week is very likely), you might want to consider finding
some time to-do so when you get a chance and are back online. It makes common Ajax-style scenarios a breeze to build, and really makes programming a lot of fun.
played around using the Atlas drop with ASP.NET 2.0 a few days ago on a
plane ride to the east-coast, and put together a simple task/to-do list
application that shows off one of the new features that comes with it
(specifically the new <atlas:updatepanel> server control that
allows you to use any shipping ASP.NET server control and get
incremental Ajax-style updates in your ASP.NET 2.0 application).
You can download the full source-code to the application here. Feel free to re-use/modify/re-ship it however you want.
