Using what you write

The href="">Coding4Fun column has
had some interesting side effects. I get to use the code I write, something that
isn't very common when you are paid to write samples.

I wanted to pull down href="">the new
Matrix Trailer, but it is around 60mb and I often switch networks ( href="">VPN on/off to get my
mail, connect to the VSS on an internal server, etc.) so I opened the
Background Copy program from my href="">second
issue... off it goes, incremental background download (can't take credit for
any of that, thank the team that built href="">BITS!)..
my wife has had the email checker (actually an early build without an
options dialog, I just put the values right into the .config file for her) from
third issue running 24/7 and href="">my home music system uses the
code techniques from href="">the
first issue as it scans our system for music updates every few

This is pretty cool so far, and right
now I'm running some code, (that I hope will make it in as part
of the next issue/installment), that is making my Messenger name into
something ugly like "Duncan (Listening To: I Love Myself Today -- Bif Naked

The next thing is to make it work the
other way around: instead of personally using code I wrote for publication, I
want to publish href="">code
I wrote at home for use by everyone else.
