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.

Well I ran in a relay Marathon today in the Valley of the Sun Marathon. I had the first 6.2 mile leg of the run. It started out on a 1 mile run down hill. Antother 1 or 2 was flat. The next 2 miles was uphill and it was very tough for me. The remainder of my part was downhill and I was very glad. I completed the 6.2 mile journey in around 58 minutes. Once the results are posted I will know the exact times.
The results are in and our relay team took 1st place in our division!!! See the results for the relay here.

A while back I wrote some small articles on robotics for the local Hobby Robotics Web Page
Building a Maze Robot - How I built a maze robot to win a robotic competition in Phoenix Arizona
30 Days of ER1 - Details about using the ER1 robot from Evolution Robotics for 30 days.
These guys used some of my Vector 2X code I published a long time ago in their class project

Mark Tilden has designed a new toy robot that uses some real cool features. The power consumption technologies alone are worth the price of the toy. It uses the motor to assist in generated power to charge the batteries. The end result is a robot that can run continously for 20 hours! That is impresive! Check out some video clips on the robot.

I have been using Cute FTP for a long time now and I finally got fed up with the way it would stop transffering files from it's queue about 3/4 of the way through a multi file transfer. This really annoyed me because it always happened when I was pressed for time and I needed to update one of my websites. So I searched http://www.sourceforge.net
and found FileZilla
. So far I really like this program. It has a very nice UI and has worked flawlessly for me for 2 months now.
