Site News

We continue to update and improve CodeProject.com and RootAdmin.com daily, and while I keep saying that updating an extremely high-load site live in front of millions of highly intelligent developers is not for the faint of heart, I do have to tip my hat to the guys doing the updates on the Mars rover. And I thought I had problems when my internet connection died halfway through an update...

The big news is still our $25,000 Android Game App Contest. $1000 in pries per month and a final grand prize of $25,000 cash. Late entries can't be accepted so please get your entries in NOW.

Not as big, but just as fun: head to the Lounge and click the "Subscribe" button at the top right to get daily updates of the top threads on the Lounge. For those who just can't miss a beat.

cheers,
Chris Maunder
