got a couple emails about how to get access to the MCE guide data. to simplify things i just cooked up the simplest app possible and its now linked in the source code section of /umpcFrame. generated a typed dataset to make it easier to move around the data. the odd thing is it takes a minute for the data to load when running in an external app, but when running within the context of MCE it takes less than 10 seconds.
this has recently become more important since the alternative has disappeared.
