Inspired by Ruby on Rails

Instead of vegging out on TV after work today, I decided to veg out on the web.  Between reading and IM I managed to kill about 2 1/2 hours before I even noticed.  The payoff for this exercise was discovering a little project called the .NET Action Pack.  Rob Conery has taken the concepts of Ruby on Rails and reimplemented them using C# and .NET 2.0.  The screencast he used to demonstrate the action pack was quite impressive.  With a build provider, a configuration file, and a single assembly, you get a whole host of classes that let you query and manipulate a database however you wish that are available at design time.
I’m definitely going to try this out at work tomorrow.
