Reviews for this release

Another simple solution made ridiculously complex for no reason.

the only known aggregator engine ever written in .net MVC

Kigg is one of the best examples for ASP.NET MVC I ever seen, excellent example of using the ioc, ddd, repositories. Its a pity that it's not maintained for the mvc3 and razor.

I agree with bbqchickenrobot's review of Kigg and bbqchickenrobot's review of fishlens! If you don't have the mental capacity to understand the code, it's better to say nothing at all than to dump on it! The guys who put Kigg together are brilliant and very generous to share such a great piece of work. This is a terrific example of a mature MVC application. Excellent work, guys!

Great code and starting point... fishlens is an idiot and a ton of people are going to MVC. web forms is old school now and adds a ton of stuff that is not needed for the majority of web applications. Just because you don't understand a new technology or refuse to embrace it doesn't mean that the code/project sucks. idiot.

Clean and easy to follow code. Great learning tool. It would be nice to have some comments in the code explaining the more complex aspects of the app e.g. BackgroundTasks. Otherwise great. Thanks.

This is the worst .NET code I've seen in a long time. Why would anyone want this CRAP you put into your code? No one likes MVC and everyone knows linq to SQL sucks. Look, if you're going to release open source .NET code, write something good that works (with .aspx pages and simple classes) and then zip it up. Give people something they can USE and easily modify. Assholes wasted my time.
