got my first major .NET application done

My second *practice project* involved more than just calling a stored procedure and passing two parameters. I had to develop a new user interface for the existing key database. This was a great way to learn everything I'll ever need to know about developing a database interface.

There's functionality for searching certain records in a relational database, then there's adding, deleting and updating records in the database, and there's also generating printable reports.

What I like the best about it is, that I realized all my long years of experience and all the accumulated knowledge from *stone-age IT* are not obsolete. It wasn't a waste to do mainframe IT, build MFS blocks, or work with DB2 databases. All this is part of the bigger picture - and not really different from what I'm doing now.
