Ok, I've nabbed the new Beta developer tools for Windows Phone 7 (and still cursing the fact that no offline installer is available) dropped it into a test VHD and did a quick test project to test out wheter the previous Silverlight 4 port of the library works on the phone (and also in Silverlight 3) and... well.. it works without a hitch, so if you were looking for a QRCode library for use in  Windows Phone 7.

Download it here.

A little scene was waiting for me when I got home today.


Of course, the person responsible for this is.

After finding out about local online knife selling website Blade.MY I decided to pick up something to try out their service. So I went and got this.


This is the Leatherman Style CS, it's a small little multitool knife like the best pocket multitool I've ever used, the Leatherman Squirt.


So it's small and slightly more than 3 inches across, and of course it's sporting a very holely look.


Not only do the holes give it a sweet look, they also serve to lighten the overall weight of the knife, and yes the weight's very pocketable.


The Style CS comes with a pair of scissors instead of pliers, which is actually one of the things that is stopping me from swapping out the Squirt in my pocket for this. I kinda like the idea of having a pretty usable pair of needle nose pliers in my pocket.


On one handle you'll find the knife.


And on the other you'll find the combination nail file / screwdriver. After carrying around the squirt for 4 years I actually fear using these flat screwdrivers, the problem is that they don't have the structural strength of a real Phillips screwdriver so if the screw you're trying to open happens to be really right you might end up damaging the head.


The carabineer clip that's on the end of the tool is actually a bottle cap opener as well, personally I haven't opened a bottle cap EVER with my knives but I guess caps must still be popular enough to warrant the inclusion of an opener in anything that can be called a proper multitool.


The little nib on the handle, is actually a small pair of tweezers.


Nothing much to write about a pair of tweezers I guess...

While the Style CS will still not replace my Squirt P4 in my pocket, the main thing I found out was that Blade.My is able to supply these Leatherman Tools at pretty competitive prices. So if you're looking for a Leatherman tool you might want to check them out. I myself already have my eyes set on something else in the catalog...

Well, I managed to get inside the Windows Live Connect Beta. And first thing I did was? Put yet another widget on my page... Let's see how long it takes for me to implement other features. Smile with tongue out
