> I remember being quite frustrated in 1.x while attempting to write a data-access layer and having to use lots of casts to write reusable code.

Yeah, I hated the 1.x days, as well for the same reasons. I ended up using a template tool to generate strongly-typed collections to avoid all of the ugly casts every where.

Still, .Net 1.x was better than what I had available before, which was ASP & VBScript. Now that was a horrid environment.

Were you also using OCX for the ASP pages?

Nope, honestly dont recognize the OCX TLA. It was pretty much a CRUD app, written in webforms, with a few reports rendered as html/xls. It wouldnt pass as pretty by modern terms, but it was a beautifully cut gem circa 2003.
