Google Search: c# convert date from uk to usa [OPML]

One of the searches that came from Google to my site asked the following "c# convert date from uk to usa".

Now I don't really know exactly what the user was asking for, but I presume it is something fairly simple. The way that I would convert a UK date into a US date is as follows.

Read in the UK date, short format/long format whatever into a DateTime field. The output the date time using a US locale.

The following code works in vs2005.

CultureInfo cultEnGb = new CultureInfo("en-GB");
CultureInfo cultEnUs = new CultureInfo("en-US");
DateTime dtGb = Convert.ToDateTime(textBox1.Text, cultEnGb.DateTimeFormat);
textBox2.Text = dtGb.ToString(cultEnUs.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern);

It reads in the date and tries to load the text as a UK Date from the first textbox and then it uses the US locale to output the string into the second textbox.

Suggestions for finding related blogs [OPML]

I am trying to think how to display related blogs in my Ajax Tagger 2.0 and in the resulting HTML that comes from the selection made in the application. It is one of the remaining parts of the application that are still todo.

Does Anybody have any ideas?

I am also trying to find a good search engine that will give me a list of related blogs and associated feeds. So far I have Technorati and Google, Does anybody know of any other good ones?

Email me or leave a comment :)

Update To AJAX Tagger Version 2 [New Domain] [OPML]

I have made a new subdomain for the AJAX Tagger. It just makes it a little bit easier to type. I also have a new domain name for it, but I need to make sure that the application is working before I put it on there.

The AJAX Tagger can still be found in the old location (http://www.kinlan.co.uk/AjaxExperiments/AjaxTag2), but now it can also be found at http://ajaxtag.kinlan.co.uk.

Both versions will continue to be updated.

RSS Bandit 1.3.0.38 has been Released [OPML]

A new version of RSS bandit has been released. I like it and use the previous version all the time. What I like about this version is that it seems to correctly import Robert Scobles opml file [Which is massive]. Also the UI has been updated [Which is nice]. I have also noticed that it seems to display massive directories of posts a lot more quickly too. But that might be because I turned off the XSLT formatting of the aggregates.

XBox 360 and the .Net Framework [OPML]

Further to my post a little while back about using the .Net Framework in the XBox 360, it seems that because the XBox 360 is a media centre consumer, you can create Media Center applications, install them on the media server and then run the UI elements through the XBox 360 with all the logic run against the Media Center

Not too sure how this works, but their is an article about it over on MSDN.
