Well I have updated Xinmapper for 2013, for those interested it is intended to be a useful library for implementing Xbox 360 controller functionality. More information here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/xinmapper/?source=directory Please check-out the subversion if you are interested, it now includes build help images!

Java, java, java...

doing my classwork in java...
I must say it really sucks as a language, I personally despise it.  I think it should never have been created, or at least created differently.  If you can wade through the complete crap the language throws at you, you might get a high-paying job, but I don't know if it would be worth it...

Java sucks!  It really is like a retarded version of C#, but it runs on more things.

More freelance experience

I think you'll find this tip quite handy if you ever need to download all of the emails from a GMAIL inbox.

Don't use POP3, use IMAP!!
Google has a problem with their POP3, it will only let you access part of your entire messages!
It simply doesn't handle 1000 messages like IMAP does, oh and IMAP has great SSL.

It's easy to use in C#, I used the ActiveUp mail library and provided a nice GUI for my client so he could do his parsing.


As you might have guessed it inserts the parsed data into an excel spreadsheet for the client.
