IPhone Siddur Application Weirdness

So I finally went out got the IPhone and love it so much. I ended up not killing At&t and getting it an entire day early without getting charged. I downloaded a ton of different applications for music and tweeting and such. There some things I don't quite like, but will deal with as time progresses and get used to the quirks: For example, I must have really big fingers and continuously hit the wrong buttons. It drives me insane, but it is still far superior to text messaging on my horrible old ......

Silverlight RC0 and Blueprints

So I followed to the core Phil Wickland's Hello World! Silverlight and SharePoint blog postings here: http://philwicklund.com/def... I figured downloading all the templates for RC0 would work perfectly fine. No it did not I had to uninstall and remove all the dll files from my GAC. When I used the Silverlight 2 Beta 2 templates and information everything worked perfectly fine. So for right now do not use RC0, instead use 2 Beta 2. After I had that issue I went through the blueprints for SharePoint ......
