    I recently was in Australia and picked up a bunch of VIPERS (I am a discerning enthusiast) simply because I thought that this was one of the best robotic platform ideas I have ran across ina long time!

    If anyone is interested, I will part with two sets (complete with all known expansion kits) just to try and stimulate interest in a great product. I will let them go to REAL enthusiasts (not just some profiteer) in hopes to try and get a small grass roots MicroBric club going. Please let me know if you are interested.

    My email is mrpolygon@hotmail.com and I have all sorts of other obsure hobbies and interests like Hydrogen Fuel cell technology, PIC, PICAXE, PARALAX etc...

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I am attempting to write a program for an older Pocket PC 2003, to try and read and write raw IR data.  The idea is to communicate with TVs and TV remotes (like a lot of people try).  I am using VB.Net, which I know is probably not the smartest choice, but until I figure out C# / C++ it's all I've got.

    So far, your article and code seems like the closest thing to what I am trying to accomplish.

    I cannot seem to find the IIRSerialPort type anywhere in the NETCF.  Was it something you defined yourself?  If so, would you be willing to share it, or explain it?
