As a recap… I had some issues with VB.NET with creating a custom VB.NET control. What I worked out was that I needed to recompile the library explicitly. I also needed to ensure that any ‘properties’ assumed that any variables were set to NULL. This was causing my biggest problem, since loading the control would crash causing bits of code to not be added to the project. The error message I was getting was something like “code generation for property failed”.

The Code Project contains an example of a control that someone else has written.

Channel 9 has sued an Online provider of television program information for copyright infringemet. They actually are more concerned that they allow people to jump 30 seconds of adverts with a single button on their digital video recorder. They cannot do much about that so they are doing what they can elsewhere. The IceTV Web Site contains more infromation on the services provided.
