Configuration Library
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.

DotText blog went down
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.

Usefull class for IM
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.

Channel 9 uses FlexWiki

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.

Marathon

Marathon

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.

Update:

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
