That's why serialization is so cool. You can reconstruct the instance at will -- even remotely.

As for cleanup, my service provider handles that, and I'm not privy to the mechanics. Probably best that way. Left to my own devices, I might resort to to a wire brush.

How about streaming to the desktop -- has anybody tried that? I've heard it's a distruptive technology!

Is anyone writing Unit Tests for all this? I mean it would really suck if there were regression failures. Trying to clean all that up would be really really messy.

Oh wait, if we listen to Joel Spolsky, then all we need is Duct Tape here.

Yeah that will do the trick. No need for any unit testing.

I'm concerned about the training aspect. Too much of a learning curve for newbies in my opinion.
