Ok, I admit it – I can be a little bit silly sometimes.  I saw some entertaining articles on some popular tech websites today (e.g. gizmodo.com) and was inspired.  Inspired, that is, to do something a little less… useful.  So, I quickly coded up a little Silverlight 3 application using Blend 3 Preview, Visual Studio, and a little too much time to myself.

Since this was a quick code-up job, I will apologize in advance for not snazzing it up very much.  Nonetheless, it does the trick.

So, here’s the challenge: can you figure out what this Silverlight application does?  By the way, no cheating!  Don’t spoil the surprise by cracking open the XAP or opening it up in reflector.  I promise I’ll reveal the answer soon.  In a few days, I’ll post the source (it’s tiny) and let you play around with it!

Note – running the app requires Silverlight 3, which you can get here.

Give it a shot, and leave a comment if you figure it out!  The app follows…
