Small update

Still breathing, still wrapping things up.  Trying to do a fair amount of testing before unleashing the first site on the world.  Next up: uploaded image validation testing.

With all of my previous EF4 issues, I had a lot of duplicate table rows, which really screwed up some of my model structure, so I've spent the last little bit rebuilding my test db and EF model.  Should be ready to go tomorrow.

Something to add to my "Microsoft should focus on the following when trying to get people in on the ground floor" list:

A crash course in core OOP patterns.  Factories, IoC, Repositories, various data patterns, etc.  The kinds of things a MVC coder will undoubtedly run across early on.  Just an idea.
