At my new job, we're in the process of moving some legacy applications to .NET.  With this conversion/re-write, comes a layer designed and re-usable components (both in classes and productivity enhancements to VS2005) that developers can benefit from.

Today, some one sent out this link to the entire IS department expressing their enthusiam for the dawn of .NET.

Things like that (to me at least) make it worth while to come to work every morning.
