You want that achievement for killing me 20 times? You're gonna have to dig it out of my warm, bleeding, bullet ridden body, but just think about it, the satisfaction that you'll get as you hold high your achievement still dripping in my blood and you scream through the headset "Achievement Unlocked!!! Suck on this MarauderMY!!!"

Then I snipe you in the head cause I've already respawned, pickup a sniper rifle, found a good vantage point and fired while you were going through the theatrics.

Ahhh.. how far we've come now in application developement. Things used to be so easy when I started delving into programming, back then an application was just a program that just ran on your computer and that was it, hmmm and if I started work back then I guess it be a lot of database applications since that was when everything started being digitized. After the announcement of Silverlight recently I think I'll now use this post to reflect on the different methods/types of application developement that are now available.. from a MS technology based perspective of course since that's what I'm most experienced in.

Version 1.0 of Siverlight is essentially a vector graphics display control, something like SVG but there's someone actually support the creation of content for it. And because of which, there aren't any actual user interface controls in it. No buttons, no textboxes, no scrollbars.

After doing some initial test scriptlets and stuff I immediately realised that the most important control I'd need would have to be something that allows the scrolling/panning of content larger than the display area.

And that's exactly what I did, feel free to check out the sample project attached with this post.

I just finished programming something in NotePad, something which I thought I never do again for a LOOOOOOONG time. But.. since I'm using Silverlight 1.0 and there's no real intellisense for the Javascript objects in Silverlight on VS2k5, I thought what the heck.. let me just bum it out retro style! ;)
