    Im new to Silverlight AND to WP7. I am Jamaican so I dont have much LOCAL resources to turn to, I am VERY GLAD I found your blog. Thank you EVER so much for taking the time out ot make these, and to post them for FREE!
    I do hope to become a veteran at WP7 and Silverlight, because they are both very interesting platforms in my views. And I would love to be able to make applications using them.
    I do hope you continue to offer this type of support and more to the community of established and aspiring developers.
    Thank you again!
