We are never too old to do something stupid!
That described my first couple of years programming in C#/.NET. After a long history of writing C++/MFC apps it was tough. I was either re-inventing the wheel (there is a prodigious amount of stuff in .NET, even in the 3.5 days), or I was trying to use C++/MFC best practices in C#/.NET/WPF. Ironically, those 'best practices' eventually caused me to buy a .NET memory profiler, stop development for about three months, and rework a metric crap-ton of code.
