Good Eats for the iPod

Good Eats taught me how to cook. I always thought it would be very convenient to have Alton's recipes loaded on my iPod, so when I found myself aimlessly walking around the supermarket, I would have a bunch of ideas and the list of ingredients available to me. About two years ago I used some web scraping program and a script to load my iPod with all of his recipes. When it came time for an update, I combined my need for new recipes and my desire to play around with C# to create an application that does it automatically. Being xmas is around the corner and I'm feeling generous, here is the application and it's source.

Executable: (7kb)
Source: (74kb)

Caveats: Requires .NET 2.0 Framework. If it doesn't work for you, you have the source to figure out why, don't expect me to fix it unless it's broken for everyone.
