SEATTLE, WA (Aug. 3, 2005) - Mobile wireless tools and services provider Mobile Research today announced the launch of their "Mobile Device Database" service for the North American market.
The "Mobile Device Database" is the first commercially available solution that provides mobile developers and content publishers the data they need to address the problems associated with mobile device fragmentation.

The "Mobile Device Database" contains over 500 data per device including supported APIs, media support, markup language tag support, WAP Push characteristics, messaging, and much more.
"Device specific information is crucial to developing mobile games and applications, formatting mobile media, providing customer support, and the delivery of mobile content in a mobile market where there over 100 unique models of mobile device available to subscribers at any given time" said David Adams, CEO of Mobile Research. The "Mobile Device Database" is launching initially for the North American market but will be expanding into European mobile markets this fall. The "Mobile Device Database" service is available on an annual subscription basis.

I Just Weighed In.....
...and I'm 105.1kg, a mere 100gms off my first target weight and thus almost able to get my first reward. Well, actually I'm making myself record 3 days under 105 before I'm claiming I've made it.....
1/2 way there..... 100kg here we come.

I'm Becoming a Student Again....
If Labour get elected I'm going to try and become a student again, take out a loan and get as much of the loan money as possible into my mortgage account..... I mean interest free money... HOW GOOD IS THAT!
DPF has some more comments here.
I mean Labour is all about income redistribution.... but this policy is nothing but taking from the poor (hard working blue collar families)... and giving to the rich (like me...)... it is completely insane.
It certainly makes the tax cuts (threshold changes) in the Chewing Gum Budget look like peanuts.....

DOS Glorious DOS- Good site for Bootdisk Images
OK... Wel I'm doing some work in good old DOS 6.22 today.... Speaking as someone who has seen the boxes in the Microsoft Museum this is a painfull experience.
In order to play with DOS I had to fina
a) A Floppy disk drive...
b) A DOS bootable disk image
c) A floppy disk
A/C weren't too easy a task- I had a USB floppy at home and some stoopid supplier of our continues to use floppies for drivers.
I found a GREAT site for boot disks though- you just download the EXE and it writes you a boot disk.

Think I've Fallen Off The Wagon
...with my exercise routine?
Well I have. but only in the last two days.
I've been kicking ass otherwise.
Weight was down to 106.9 last time I weighed in but it's much more muscle than flab now. I've been exercising a lot more- my fave trick at the moment is walking up big hills. I went up Flagstaff from Booth Rd on Sat in 42.26 minutes. I usually do Mt Cargill on Sundays but one of my staff memebers and a number of my paddling mates corrupted me with my own duty free grog on Sat night so I crashed on the couch with the dog for Sunday.
Had a bad day for eating today and yesterday- back on track from tonight.

Multiple Startup projects in VS.NET
When you are writing and debugging SmartClient applications yu often want to be able to seamlessly debug across the web service boundary. That is, you want to be able to set break points in both your server and cient side code.
This often means that you need to have both projects running in the debugger.
I just found out that VS.NET supports this nativly.
Go to the Solution Properties of your solution and check the 'Multiple Startup projects' radio button. You can then set the order in which certain projects are started up. e.g. Start the web services first and then startup your smart client project.
Very cool- you learn something new every day.
