just had an idea. not sure how this will work, but i will try it anyway. Basicly, an add on to WordPresswritten in ASP.NET. the addon is a web service that connects directly to the data base (MySQL) that word press uses. since the service is easy to use in VB.NET, C#, etc, it makes it a lot more programmable. i have tried may ways to get VB.NET to talk to the XMLRPC backend in WordPress, but never with any luck. this could help, plus i could then write apps for my PocketPC and Smartphone! So, i will be posting code somewhere, not sure where yet, but watch this space.
