A cool way to get your kids to learn new things in a fun environment

For most of the last year, I've been working on the back end web development of Flink Learning
web site, which sells over 4,000 educator-created games, e-Books and fun tutorials that engage kids in Grades K-5 and enhance learning. Flink's software also enables teachers and educators to author their own e-activities and offer them to their students.
I have been working on the setup of the backend admin components of the site in addition to the
web service communication with Flink Play software. The site has been done in ASP.NET 2.0, and had an existing privately developed CMS, which I inherited from the previous developer. I also had the chance to use Telerik for the backend pages, and had a good exposure to some of Telerik's most popular control, the RadGrid.
Overall, I am having a great fun time working on this site, and in particular, working with the site's owner, who is one of my most favorite clients to work with. With his clear vision and ability to communicate his thoughts in a very clear and simple way, we made the perfect team together.
We have recently finished a big milestone in the site's development, and finally have released our affiliate network program, and I'm very excited (as well as the site's owner) to see it working in action.

It is pretty easy to use Telerik and they seem to have a nice set of features you can add to your grids to make them more powerfull. There also seem to be a lot of examples out there to make the grids more flexible than the normal ASP.NET DataGridView. Also they are supposed to have good performance when you have a large number of records over ASP.NET's own DataGridView, but I have not tested it.
Give it a shot :)

Very cool. How do you like Telerik? I always wanted to try their controls.
