the gist i've deployed the xos.mvc.framework nuget package which offers base model classes, controllers, and commonly used attribute filters for mvc projects as well as some nifty jquery and css plugins/helpers aimed to speed up asp.net mvc application development. the framework can be found on nuget.org. the source code is also available on github.
I have found that there are times in developing when I had to restart my ASP.NET application. One good application of this is troubleshooting application-level events, which is exactly what I needed to accomplish.
