LINQPad is great!

LINQPad LogoI just discovered LINQPad, an application that allows me to write standalone C# code and LINQ queries without firing up an entire Visual Studio project.

I was able to completely code up and test a new database record matching process for a recurring issue and then transplant it into the actual VS project.  That saved me a lot of time without having to integrate each change into the project, build, deploy, and test the result.
