Blair's Burnt Offerings My weblog about .NET and other worldly things

My kit arrived on Friday for the Dare to Dream Different ChallengeVery very cool.  The only minor disappointment was that the supplied XBee modules were Series 1.  Fortunately, I had a few 2.5 modules laying around from a past project that I upgraded to ZB. 

Fortunately for me, Michael Schwarz created a library that contains code to talk to 2.5 and later modules for the desktop and micro frameworks.  After a few hours of leaning how his library worked (and not worked with Series 1) and upgrading XBee modules, I started work on one piece of my project.  Here’s a screenshot of the application (so far) running showing my little XBee network:


So far, I have only used the desktop part of his library.  I hope to try out the Micro Framework version soon.  But first, I need to send RSS data between two modules.

Also, thanks to Dan for answering yet another one of my newbie WPF questions, this time about data binding.
