Windows Service

The "to-do" list for Virtual Radar Server is as long as my arm, but if you want to pile more work onto it then this is for you.

In VirtualRadar.Headless.View.MainView.ShowView(), would you consider checking Console.KeyAvailable or Console.IsInputRedirected and using Console.In.Read() [Or Console.ReadLine()] for when standard input is redirected? Console.ReadKey is not redirected standard input friendly and this change would make it alot easier to build a service wrapper that works with Release build.

Feel free to submit a pull request in Github if you've got a working implementation :) I've not merged pull requests before, the source was on CodePlex up until a couple of months ago, but one of the reasons I moved to Github was to make it easier to take contributions to the source. From the looks of this tutorial it seems fairly straight-forward:

But failing that, yes, I'll add it to the list of things to do.
