.NET IPC through Named Pipe Servers

I've been struggling to get my own IPC server and client going. The work was based on this great post on The Code Project. Even though the article was very useful, I found the code to be a bit clunky.

I restructured a lot of it into very neat client / server structure. During debugging, I stumbled onto this "new" addition in the .Net 3.5 Framework. Named pipes are neatly integrated, so no need for my client and server anymore. Doh!

Oh well, I only lost a day's worth of coding, and at least I can rest assured that this part of my project will be quite stable.
