Linq to SQL Compact

SQL Server Compact - Compact & Capable : LINQ with SQL Server Compact (a.k.a. DLINQ with SQL CE)

Trying to convert a data provider from SQL Server to SQL Compact for ease of transfer of application and data I run into a problem of converting the data schemas. The ones I created for SQL Server would not readily convert to SQL Compact. Hopefully, there is a solution in the above article.

SQLMetal <options> [<inputfile>]
sqlmetal /dbml:test.dbml test.sdf

Retrieving web pages in .Net

Looking for invites

I'm trying to find some invites to test the service. Apparently, it is enough to invite a friend to use a shared folder.

Google App Engine - Hosting the Web Applications

Google App Engine - Google Code
Google has an interesting project, also in a preview mode. They are to host dynamic web pages, finally. Now, instead of having html hosting for free, the dynamic sites are becoming the norm for everyone. Great.
I was thinking to achieve the same with some sort of client-side execution (JavaScript, Silverlight, Flash, or whatever) and passive hosting (googlepages, dropbox, ...). Hopefully there would be some sort of sync API to connect to a mesh. :D

Mesh - The Solution?

Live Mesh Tech Preview
Here it is. A preview of what is to come. Web as a platform is coming to life in a solution from one of the giants.
Mesh includes synchronization service, online storage, virtual desktop, and remote access to members of the mesh. This is all I need at the moment.
