I love software development, and technology of all kinds. I have a boy and a girl and a beautiful wife, all of whom I adore. I practice Southern Chinese Kung Fu, and hope that my kids will too. I write code and play boardgames in my spare time.

I currently work as a JEE engineer in Edina, MN.

comment Should a Parent with Children have a DefaultChild, or should a Child have a Default property?
@Dunk: option 2 would work as long as the default tracker is specific to the User or the User-Customer relationship, for example on a many-to-many link table.
