I have been wondering how fesible it would be to use the Compact Framework on a Pocket PC with WiFi to control a Home Automation system. Seems like it would be a handy device to use around the house. I have seen a number of aftermarket remotes that work over radio frequencies to control media devices in remote rooms. These devices seem like they would work (although I have not tried one) but they seem expensive and I could imagine that they would fall short on expandability. So I did a quick search on the Compact Framework and WiFi.

I have been working on a command line program that parses some text files specific to the Medical industry and I finally decided I am tied of writting command line parsing code. I noticed source forge project called Nini
that is a .Net library that handles configuration access as well as command line parsing. I am going to download it and check it out.

There is a very useful Dot Net MSN Messenger library
that is going to allow my Home Automation software to send me instant messages about the state of the house.

My weblog went down when my hosting company decided to change the IP address of my SQL server database. I am not sure what prompted the IP change but I am going to look into it.

Found a .Net class that I may try and use for mu HomeAutomation
project. I want to be able to have a notification service that is capable of sending instant messages when certain events occur. Chris Sells has some IM Client Classes
that may work for me.

Looks like Channel 9 Wiki is using FlexWiki for it's wiki engine. I haven't really had a chance to see what Channel 9 is all about yet but I could not pass up the chance to post my observations about the use of FlexWiki.
