  1. This project is totally cool. I'd love to see it in motion. Is there a way I can convert it to run on a Voyage 200? Otherwise, a Youtube video would be great. Great job, it's really impressive.

    Now that we know the problem, what's the fix? You could force the execution of the query with a ToList() or similar, but if the deferred execution was intended, the only way I can think of implementing it is to code your own IEnumerable<ContentItemHeader> and IEnumerator<ContentItemHeader>, create your ArticlesDataContext in IEnumerable<ContentItemHeader>.GetEnumerator and dispose it in IEnumerator<ContentItemHeader>.Dispose. But that seems to be a lot of trouble...

    SlimTune Profiler for .NET

    I'm really looking forward to try out your profiler. The .NET world is really lacking in this area (at least regarding free tools) and I'm sure you can do a really good job. Good luck with the project!

    Reasons not to use DirectInput for Keyboard Input

    Do you know a way to get movement ballistics just as when listening to WM_MOUSEMOVE events, but without the problem of the cursor being clamped to the screen borders? WM_MOUSEMOVE does not provide any information when the cursor is on the right edge of the screen and the mouse is moving to the right, for exemple. Does the ballistics have to be reimplemented from WM_INPUT messages?

    Source Code Statistics

    That's funny, I did mine one week ago :). It's not extremely flexible and is designed mostly to suit my needs, but here are its features and limitations : * C# only. * Scans a directory structure starting from a root directory for .cs files. * UI-based (very basic). * Implemented using only regexes. * Counts : * Line count * Blank line count * Documentation line count (only ///, /** unsupported) * Bracket line count (lines with only a bracket) * Code line count * Type count * Class count * Structure count * Interface count * Enumeration count * Delegate count * Throw statement count * Try statement count * Catch statement count * Finally statement count I'm still trying to include a "bad jokes in documentation" count, but I haven't managed to find a regex that matches it yet. Its available here (source included). Feedback is appreciated.

    Unless it's only me who haven't found the feature yet, I think a nice and easy feature would be to allow comments on polls. While I'm here, let me add my vote to the "developper type" idea. You could also add a list of interests, which would be a bit more specific such as "Network Programmer", "Concept Artist", "Sound Effects Designer", etc. I also second the "Games I play" idea. You could also have a "favorite game genres" feature. I can't wait to see the next iteration of this cool site!

    Asplode v1.2 Release

    Nice! This version runs without any problems on my pc. The game is actually a cool clone of geometry wars. Here's what I think of it : Pros : - Nice graphics, well polished, professionnal look. - Fun gameplay mechanics, good level of challenge - Good support of various resolutions Cons : - Fullscreen mode messes up the desktop icon layout! (I hate that!) - The audio side needs work : the music isn't great and the spawning sfx get annoying Suggestions : - Add support for keyboard/mouse layout (mouse to aim) - Add more game modes to add replay value - More power-ups!

    An Asplosion! of a Re-Release

    I've tried to run your game but it crashes as soon as I open it (before I get to see anything). I get the usual (translated from french) : "Asplode! encountered a problem and must be closed. Please excuse us for the blablabla." I've verified that I've installed : - Micsosoft .NET Framework 3.5 - Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable 2.0 - Microsoft XNA Game Studio 2.0 - Microsoft DirectX SDK (November 2007) Here's my laptop's specs : Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8GHz Microsoft Windows XP Professionnal SP2 (French) 2GB of RAM nVidia GeForce 8600m GT On a side note, why not add a few screenshots in your journal entry?
