Grooving on Asynchronous Events

A while back I lamented that the "Add Web Reference..." function in VS 2005 didn't generate the traditional BeginXXX() and EndXXX() methods I was so fond of. Now...I'm seeing the light with the asynchronous eventing model, and how AsyncOperation, AsyncOperationManager, and SynchronizationContext all flow and work together. It's really cool, and it makes coordination and composition of asynchronous work pretty straightforward. This will definitely change my talk around a bit for the Dec. 2006 Twin Cities .NET User Group but it's for the better.
