Pocket PC Journal client version 1.1-alpha

I've been developing a client for the Pocket PC (independent of AvantGo) for DeadJournal.com, and I figured I'd post it here, too. It's extremely easy to set to use livejournal.com; once you log on to lj once, it remembers the server name.

For anyone that's wanted a DeadJournal client for the Pocket PC...I've pulled a couple of all-nighters teaching myself sockets and debugging like crazy and I've made an alpha version of a client. I've recently added a BUNCH of stuff to this program, known as PPCDJ. I've released version 1.1 alpha with a bunch of new features:

* New user interface
* MUCH faster:
--- Response reads
--- Response parsing
--- Login times (mood caching)
* Ability to:
--- Set the login server
--- Encode a journal entry
--- Password-optional encryption
--- Built-in ability to decode
--- Website decoder
--- Read previous entries
--- Edit/delete previous entries
--- Create, edit, and delete entries offline to post on next connect
--- Import from any files, with special filters for
----- Notes
----- Previously exported text files
--- Export to a text file
* Custom moods
* Sorted mood list
* Custom post date and time
* More robust mood handler
* Better "backdate" handler
* Bug fixes
* Options!!

You can download the program from http://people.tamu.edu/~jbf5609/product.html?prog=65
That website decoder that's mentioned above can be found at http://www.jfsoftware.com/decode.html

Edit: I'm registering this project on SourceForge, and in making it Open Source I'll be making the entry encoding useless. So...I'll be releasing version 1.1.1 soon (the first SourceForge version, hopefully) without the encoding. Oh well...

Tell me what you think!
