Blackbaud releases an iPhone emulator

Today Shaun Sullivan posted an article in Labs discussing his latest project, an iPhone emulator. 
I've been playing with it and it's really pretty cool! You can use it to develop a mobile version of your website right from your desktop. That makes things much easier.

Open Source REAPI Project

Earlier this week AJParise made me aware of an Open Source project that he started for the REAPI on CodePlex. There is some pretty slick stuff there for those of us that have purchased The Raiser's Edge API. 
AJParise wrote: In January 2008, I started working extensivley with the REAPI.After a year of headaches and mindnumbing research I've developed some very handy classes for .NET developers using the 3.5 framework looking to integrate with the REAPI. 
This represents a pretty significant mile stone in the growth of Blackbaud's developer's community. There are many open source components on Labs but this is the first that has sprung up outside of Blackbaud. I can only hope that others begin to contrbute to the work that AJParise has started. 

Be sure to check out the project on codeplex when you get a chance and if you can, please contribute.
