Windows Azure Table Storage stupid mistakes

Don't program when you're tired ...

I've been working through the Azure labs and as usual I don't stick exactly to the script (how're you supposed to learn anything if you don't challenge the boundaries? ;) ) So after 2 late hours I couldn't figure out why:
Created tables, but the more common


I just noticed now that in my "ThingContext" here:
        public IQueryable<ThingOneThingOneEntities
                return this.CreateQuery<ThingOne>("ThingOnes");
the property name of the entity set was different to the EntitySetName I declared.

Setting them the same made everything happy again.

In other words ... magic strings are evil!
