The news item posted by Kent today about a new "PriorityQueue" feature in NET 6 [^] triggered an itch i call: "i-could-make-one-of-those."

Since I had never experimented with SortedSet, I decided to use that and see where it took me. And, it took me to an interesting place as i wrestled with how to define a generic wrapper structure ... SortedSet<T> requires a Type with an IComparer implementation.

After muddling around for an hour or so (several mental buffers needed refreshing), i had a working example that i then tested.

And, then i got snagged as i changed a value in a SortedSet element ... a DateTime Property ... and it appeared the Set did not sort as expected.

With growing frustration, I tried different values, and re-tested.

i began to get angry as my cherished image of myself as an expert debugger began to resemble the aging wreck i see in any mirror i am unlucky enough to look into by accident OMG | :OMG:

Finally, it dawned on me: i expected the wrong result ! Yes, the beast was doing what i told it to do.

i think we need a new word for this special kind of bruised-ego chagrin mixed with plummeting self-esteem ... i'll try to think of one, later ... first, I need to go outside and scream some more.
