Weirdly I was thinking "What is the term for something that eats fungus?"
And worked out the Greek etymology, Mycophage, and when I typed it into google, (for research purposes) the first thing that appeared was Fungivore, it hadn't occured to me to work out the latin etymology!
Just goes to show how my brain works.

I found that this article was added under " Desktop Gadgets " and then deleted without publishing. Can someone tell me why was this deleted, was there anything wrong from my side.
I only thought this is an interesting topic and worth sharing. Is there any way so that CP team can pick this article again ( only if they feel it's worth ).
I think you got me wrong, I'm not able to post the code here.. Since this is part of my research work... Which is still ongoing..
That is the reason i recorded a video to at least show the demo.
Under the Articles menu there is link to "Post your Blog"; I suppose you could use that. I had not seen your post prior to this comment but I would urge you to make two changes to your blog.
1) Spell out acronyms the first time you use them. You used two of them, NFS and NFC, and I have no idea what these are. Even if it is a company name, at least give some reference so that we can know what you are talking about.
2) Your domain model diagram is too small to read the text in it, therefore it is useless. Either use a larger image, larger text, or get rid of it.

Does anyone else spend far to much time trying to get IE to render similar outputs as ALL other browsers... i am ammused that the IE team seems not to care to much about CSS3 gradients or HTML "standards" because they can rely on the default install for 85% of users not bothering to get a real browser
Internet, HTTP, Web Services: These are few that have become great things because there is a standard so everyone can use them robustly and without side effects. I think MS (and other people, developing anything) should try to adhere to the open standards as far as possible. That will be good for the community, and in the long run good for the software vendor.
I can suggest users to boycott IE, and ask developers to show the message "You're using the crappy IE browser. Get a 'real browser' now', if the users are using IE. That is easy to say and will not work. Because no matter how you hate MS, they got big market share in quite a few things, and consequently they got a say.
Microsoft's (or any organizations' for that matter) stubbornness for not adhering to standards will inhibit the prospering of the community and consequently reduce their future income. We can only hope they will know better.
I can only hope that anyone who has the know-how to spoof their user-agent string isn't still using IE.
No I don't use IE as my main browser, in this particular case I was more interested in why it was excluded as nothing shown was beyond the capabilities of the latest version of IE which spoofing the user-agent string in IE10 showed, but then in reading the persons CV on the site you can see where the bias against IE comes from.
Oh if you're wondering I refuse to support IE6 and if something doesn't work in it I say tough sh*t, upgrade and if really necessary use compatibility view. Anything is preferable to the abortion that is IE6.

So what browser would you recommend. Chrome? Oh wait, what about the WebKit extensions proposed for CSS 3? FireFox - oops, sorry, moz extensions there.
If you are talking about adherence to standards, then a few things to contemplate:
1. You fall over before you get to HTML 5. It's not a standard.
2. Extensions drive features forwards. Microsoft's problem was not engaging with other browser providers to deliver their extensions as enhancements.
3. We are techies. For us, there's not a real issue with the concept of downloading an alternative browser. For other non-technical users, there is a real issue.
4. If someone is using Windows Phone, they cannot install another browser. So, a strategy of pushing users away because you haven't taken the time to make your site work in IE just lost you customers.
