About This Blog


Bite The Wax Tadpole is a blog about .NET journeys in pain.

Basically if I have a .NET coding problem at work and it takes me forty minutes or more of Googling to solve the problem, then I will blog my journey of pain here. Consequently you will share my blunders and victories (FWIW) here. Hopefully you will get a laugh out of it while being helped.

Just as Biting A Wax Tadpole has a mystical connection to refreshment in the minds of Chinese smallgoods vendors, so am I metaphorically Biting my own Wax Tadpole by girding my loins and taking up the challenge to Blog.

All right, BTWT is not going to displace Scott Guthrie as the canonical .NET blogspot any time soon but to paraphrase Zechariah, son of Iddo, “Never despise a day of small beginnings”.

And, guys, if I save forty minutes of your life through one of my posts…send money.

Best Regards,
