  • Blog Post: Series Review: Riverworld

    I started reading the Riverworld series last year and finished the fourth book (the ending) tonight. It's a cool scifi concept - everyone who has ever died gets resurrected on a world with one big river running through it, in a valley bounded by unscalable mountains.

    Digital Picture Frame (Part 2)! (go read Part 1 if you haven't) Hardware time! I opened up the laptop and folded the LCD back behind the keyboard.

    As some of you may know, I’m in the process of writing an RSS reader for my Microsoft Smartphone 2003. It will be running on Net CF. Since it is an offline RSS reader, I wanted to have the ability to download RSS files for offline reading. So I had a function, StartDownloadAll() which would iterate...
