*cough* To add insult to injury, this was after experimenting with the 
insanely comfortable and well thought out Swing and SWT over on the Java 
side. I had to use .NET because it actually ran out of the box on college 
machines, and there was a libpcap binding available. I can't start to count 
the hours I spent pouring over the .NET docs to verify that no, there are 
absolutely NO layout managers or anything like that except the goddamn 
useless docking and anchoring. Or not being able to bind the contents of a 
List widget to a collection and then automagically refresh it short of 
learning ADO. Etc.

What didn't help was the local "if we're not coding it, it's not worth coding" 
MS fandom, that answered all of my questions about how the bloody hell do you 
post events across threads sanely with a "Huh? Why don't you code everything 
in automatically generated GUI event handlers like every Form Designer weenie 
does?". I stopped asking after the third time I failed explaining to them 
that all the input to the application comes from two network interfaces 
completely asynchronously and there are no GUI events at all.
