module or shared method?

Modules (class modules) are fairly more effective from design and reusability point. Shared method may peform slightly faster, but in most cases, you will not be able to measure the diffrence. If speed is what you really need, create the time critical subrutines in the unmanaged C code.

for methods, i'd use shared as though writeline [ shared methods ] as a member of console class. but in enums and structs, it's better be modules. though i don't know much about this. lol
