Arne,

Personally I don't like modules - can't think off hand why but it does bring
back cold sweats and shivers from pre OO days :p

There is a resources secion of the project where you can store all the
global application now and be accessed with My.Application if you are using
VB (c# there is another way to access it as there is no My namespace in c#).
Click show all files in your project and you will see it... Or you can have
a look at:

I found out how to set an application setting, but can't retrieve a setting.
How do I retrieve a setting?
csharpfriend doesn not respond.

Global is kind of a dirty word in object oriented programming.

You should use a singleton pattern if you want the simplest solution. If
your application is likely to be large or complex I strongly recommend CAB
and the creation of a service that can be manages using the dependency
injection system it provides.

The dirty method, if you're really _really_ lazy and wish to be ridiculed by
all who know you, is a static class with static fields.
