The holidays are fast approaching and Coding4Fun has whipped up two great holiday related coding examples. First one is written by Arian Kulp who wrote an application that parses your blog and finds if you've been naughty or nice based on what you said. It uses Regular Expressions, a background worker and the Web Client to get all the work accomplished.
The second application is written by myself, Clint Rutkas, to reverse lookup your gifts based on your Amazon Wishlist and the acual size of the gift. You know how big your wrapped gift is and you know what you asked for so why not figure it out. The application used Amazon's web services to find a wishlist based on an email address and also the requested size of the gift.
