Refactoring

An excellent post by Julian Bucknall of Developer Express on refactoring–more specifically the eight refactorings he uses most.  Of the ones he names, I use the 8th one (use string.format) the most.  As you might expect with inherited code, there are plenty of places where strings are concatenated with plus signs.  I root them out of every piece of code I rewrite, and highlight them in code reviews.
