Can you believe it? After working my free asp.net template example and learning how to take a free web template and integrating it into asp.net, I acquired quite a few skills.
And now the company that I work for has started to work on a new web offering and for the first time decided to use an outside company to do the web UI design. They delivered HTML, CSS and images. So, now I am doing professionally exactly what I did previously for fun.
It is almost as if I was practicing for my current task. If that is not Serendipity, then I do not know what is.
