Thanks for the links.

I've been reading Typescript Deep Dive by Bassarat Ali Syed, a free download but can't remember where I got it. It's pretty good but parts are very confusing. I'll check out the links you sent in the morning!
Give me coffee to change the things I can and wine to accept the things I cannot!
