    So whats stopping me from say, joining twitter and constantly shutting down your computer?  What a silly idea this is...

    Nice work. I haven't used Yedda, but I tried out Tweet# for my fun Twitter project: http://blog.gadodia.net/twitter-profile-copier/

    John, look at how he is handling the tweet. You won't be able to shutdown someone elses computer by sending them a tweet that says "Shutdown"

    Wow, this is cool. And @John, he is sending the tweet himself, so people can't send him a tweet with 'shutdown' like Wayne said. Gotta try this in C#

    Very cool app idea. Thanks.

    Would love to see a follow up on switching on or off one's TV or other appliances remotely using VB.net and Twitter framework.

    @Rogue, click the "Email Us" link and I'll help debug this with you.  It should just work as I've played with it but without seeing how you have yours set up, it could be some configuration Shoban didn't account for.

    From the link we listed, there is a newer release as well.  http://tweetmypc.codeplex.com/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx

    Not loving the lack of documentation on setup and using this thing. Like, it's obvious that you enter your authentication info then click save and then tweet your PC to shutdown. Well, I created a new account with twitter and it doesn't recognize it on the app. The "what to expect" would be helpful as a read me to the app. As far as coding it, and compiling my own version, it seems awesome and I'm looking forward to giving it a shot.
