Victory over Bluetooth

Filed under: Ideas — tj @ 4:23 pm

After battling for days with every different Bluetooth chat implementation on the net, myself, and Scott the trusty co-worker, decided to write out our own. Scott could have most likely easily done this himself, if he could pull himself away from WoW. That didn’t happen, so he merely offered his advice and his code where it was applicable. So I parted the waters, and raised a lamb, and then sacrificed it, and completed my task. A functional version of a Bluetooth chat implementation. So far it’s been tested on a Dell Axim x30, some really nice HP that Doug was nice enough to let us use, and an iPaq 2215. All of these use the Widcomm / Broadcomm Bluetooth stack, so if yours uses the Microsoft stack, well, one of the other off the shelf chat apps will more than likely run for you.

Note: There is no discernable version, or any sort of licensing information. This is strictly non-profit, and the only thing I hate to gain was a lot of suffering and a few lines of text passed over the Bluetooth stack. The only thing that I used other than the internet for help and the Compact Framework was this file, CFSerialIO.

Please download and criticize my source code.

I hate them.
Two hard drives, a UPS, and nearly 500 dollars later, and I still don’t have my data back.
