Embedded development using .Net Micro Framework

Lately I have been trying out .Net Micro Framework development to see how easy it is, so my first attempt was to make tetris for it. About an hour later this was the result!

Next stop for me is to create more indepth OS style with a GUI and a runtime for the OPL programming language (used on the Psions) why you may ask, well its easy to encapsulate and I designed most of the runtime for OPL for the compact framework so not much needs changing.

The phsyics demo that made me go wow....

Down at the MTC (Microsoft Technology Center) the guys in white lab coats come up with some amazing technology demos, however few make me go wow as much as this one did!

Here Dave is presenting how to implement a physics engine in the Surface which can replace the default scatterview control.

DeepSearch... the destoryer of web hosts

Just a quick update on DeepSearch, there is no longer a test site for it as it crashed my web host. Guess too many people were trying out the hi-res image search feature.

...Well I did say it was a POC and had some bugs
