Yeah I know about the ofline wiki readers, but most are wiki engines
wrapped in custom html views.

As far as I am concerned, without an IDE or rapid dev app, It is
impractical for me to dev any apps at the moment, I just have too much
on my plate, and not enough time for all of them even.

So a rapid dev app has a higher priority also :(

I have no problem with Perl, especially if is just layout changes, and
the as far as SpareMiNT goes it was more about aesthetics and updated
content, and linking in more of the new stuff (up and coming).

Obviously the programming with WPF worked out successfully :)

I know what you mean about mono, it is one of those on my todo list
also, although I was going to use the linux version as a basis (cant
remember the name offhand)
