After spending the last two months working with volume measurements (4/3 PI AB2), MySQL silent installs, and almost everything to do with the various aspects of GDI+ in recent projects, I'll finally be caught up (relatively speaking) by the beginning of next week and ready to proceed on the Echoes project here at SourceForge.
Having said this, I've slated the next version of the Echoes software for release by or on March 27th. There are many good features being developed (auto-updaters, database implementation, addition of images and content, multiple language compatibility, advanced printing, exception handling ;), HTML Help, NSIS on down the road, etc.), as well as some other ideas in mind, so we'll see what comes out of it in approximately one week.... read more
I've recently posted a discussion group at Yahoo! which may help speed up development and organization of the content related to this project. Check it out if you're interested: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/the_lesser_known/
All are welcome to participate. In the meantime, more updates are scheduled for next week after I finish a larger work project at hand, and I believe it will flow well and be very user friendly (as much as possible).... read more
Before leaving on vacation for 10 days or so I thought I would release the most recent version of the Echoes software. A copy of the revision history is listed below.

- Added Class "Quote" and implemented the random quote selection code. ... read more
I'm currently in the process of gathering up quotes, articles, and images for the Echoes of Eternity program and am looking out for some additional interesting and informative content to present. Any submissions that you may have in mind are very much welcome! I hope to have a good base of information by January 3rd, and plan to release the next version soon thereafter.
The setup and source files are now available on the downloads page for this project. Currently the functionality is limited to the interface and a few various other items, but there's more to come soon. The next version will include a preliminary set of listings for each topic, as well as images and updates to be listed in the next revision history documentation.
Just a reminder that the first version of the interface for the Echoes of Eternity program has been submitted (a screenshot only has been posted temporarily), and that the sources will be uploaded shortly. If you have an interest in the humanities, sciences and the further evolution of interest and participation in theories that played (and still play) a major role in shaping humanity then this is a project with great potential for anyone interested. I look forward to seeing it evolve!
