Yes, a good discussion. I find it does. Why? First, intellisense helps prompt or discover new methods. It also helps me to remember method names. I guess age and mind rott are to blame.
 
Secondly, re-sharper, fxcop, style cop etc are all great in my mind. Again, it helps "standardise" code and teaches you to adhere to a code practice. It again helps to prompt and question what you are doing in the first place.
 
It can help with productivity.
 
However, I do understand where Mark is coming from. In the old days, you had to "know" about what you are doing as there was little information, books etc. however, I bet the learning curve was longer.
 
Either that or I am just STUPID! Sniff | :^)
