Don’t Show me the Hourglass

When creating applications, especially on an enterprise scale, don’t create them so that they run start to finish, tying up the user’s PC needlessly. If all you need is two pieces of information, get it from the user, then use technologies like Microsoft Message Queue (MSMQ) or Microsoft Exchange to handle the processing. This will free up the user’s machine immediately and you can send a message later when the task is complete or share relevant communication with the user.
