Website may be up and down over next few months. I'm currently doing a complete overhaul of everything. Going back to simple individual .htm pages, new overall site theme, sanitizing and cleaning up html of all pages and blog posts, attempting to implement a new tooling and publishing system etc etc.

 Firefox constanly crashing!!!  Geeze I upgraded to firefox 3.0 and it seems to crash constantly! It's like russian roulette web surfing you never know when it's going to crash. I must have submitted like 50 error reports so far.

I just uploaded a new XNA content importer/processor library to the XNA page called StreamContentProcessor. The StreamContentProcessor allows you to use simple stream based importer and/or processors, so you can read your content files as a stream using content.Load("AssetName");

It seems XNA and GSE (Game Studio Express) does not ship with a simple xml importer and/or processors, so you can use xml files as a game asset. So I created the XMLDocContentProcessor library that allows XNA developers to use regular xml files as game assets using the xna content pipeline, and returns a XMLDocument object containing the xml data. A simple example of how to use the library is provided below ...

// declare a XmlDocument that will contain
// the xml data
XmlDocument doc;

// call content.load method and specify the 
// XmlDocument as the return type
doc = content.Load‹XmlDocument›("Test");

// set the title of the window to the 
// content stored in the root node
this.Window.Title = doc.DocumentElement.InnerText;
