Yup, its now a new year, a new theme on my site, more bandwidth and well time has just passed. I’ve been doing tons of stuff, very little XNA bits but lots of other things.
I got a Sony Reader (see here) – my Dad was rather good and bought it back from the US for me and its just fantastic! It does exactly what it should do and no more which is a book viewer (it can play MP3’s as well but I have an iPod to do that). Anyhow, I’ve been doing a lot of stuff with that recently – you could check out BBeBinder (here) for more information but its an app that basically writes out LRF files (EBooks in Sony format) http://www.eta-i.org/provigil.html however its got some very nice features in it such as converting HTML Pages to images, converting RTF to HTML, and some other bits (yeah, OK I’ve mentioned the bits that I’ve done but thats only a small part).
Anyway, thats been taking up a fair bit of my time plus learning Python, some Vista Sidebar gadgets – a Secure Password Manager similar to PWSafe and a comic strip downloader (kinda based on DailyStrips – both all my own work from scratch with the exception that the ideas aren’t mine).
So there we are – nothing wildly exciting but busy all the same (trying to fit that in plus real life is a challenge).
Anyhow, I’ll post more soon plus some more code hopefully.
