So a couple of days ago my Adafruit Experiment Kit for Arduino (ARDX) arrived, and today I spent some time playing with it. I went through the first couple of experiments but decided to go off the range a little with the second one. Instead of writing a whole bunch of code which goes through … Continue reading Fun with Arduino!
I have recently been fixing a support incident with a system of ours which processes data in the form of CSV files emailed to an exchange mailbox. Occasionally the producer of these CSVs doesn't form them correctly and the whole thing packs up; the item stays in the mailbox, and somebody has to go digging … Continue reading No item should ever go un-processed

I am working on a poor-man's "Green Screen" app which uses the Kinect's skeleton tracking to mask out the background. I got the first stage of it working today. I'll post more videos as the … Continue reading GreenScreen for Kinect

It is fast, and very flexible in terms of the Quality-of-Service that you want. Now, I have developed a framework around it so that various parts of our application need … Continue reading Lambda expressions in C# – How useful are they really?
