In bed last night, I dreamt a wonderful improvement to the design of some software I'm working on.
It would clean it up, move the code into it's appropriate classes, make it all beautiful.

So I have just coded it.
Or at least, I coded 3/4 of it. That was the point when I thought "Hang on a moment, you can't have abstract static methods in C#". D'Oh! | :doh:

Bugger.

Note to self: don't listen to me when I'm sleepy.

Anyone else done this? Constructed a massive edifice of beautiful code in your mind, only to find when you have got sufficient caffeine in your system that it has a fatal, fundamental, flaw?
