Finishing up a project (is tough)

So I'm "almost done" porting the ol' marriage map to Windows Phone. Sadly, "almost done" means "I put off all the annoying stuff to the end that isn't hard, but is tedious". Here's a list of said things:
- Making sure the app works when coming out of tombstoning
- Adding an "About" page with links to the homepage, to review the app, tips, etc.
- Turning any constants into settings, and adding the UI to change them and persist them between runs
- Making icons for the app (I need four different sizes!)
- Adding Little Watson so I can get an email when the app crashes (although this seems less necessary now that I know you can get a list of crash stack traces from the App Hub...but it's still nice if I need to follow up or tell people that the crash has been fixed)
- Add links to my other Windows Phone apps
It's a good thing actually seeing the app available for download/purchase is so rewarding, because finishing the app is a big slog. I can tell because I'm much more distracted by Twitter/reddit/etc. than usual...hopefully there's not much more to go!
Rochester pictures, Obama's health care speech

Finally put pictures up from our Rochester trip this weekend:
Obama's big health care speech was last night - I caught a bit of it on the radio, but reading the remarks this morning it seems like a good speech and hopefully something will get done. (here's the plan in bullet point style) I'm glad he addressed some of the more ridiculous rumors like "death panels".
During the speech, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) yelled "You lie!" to Obama, which got some boos. Here's a video - the look on Nancy Pelosi's face is priceless :-) Apparently he called afterwards to apologize to Obama.
I got my copy of Alien Hand Syndrome (i.e. the Damn Interesting book) yesterday. It is good!
