    The Morning Brew - http://blog.cwa.me.uk/ - a daily roundup of good, .net centric blog posts. There seems to be more .net content in here than on CodeBetter and devlicious these days.

      Oh! :-) I've not asked that exact question - but I have been coordinating with both Stickney and Joel from Inov8 and they've not mentioned any issues.

      I've checked with Joel - the building has been inspected and deemed safe.
