Quick and Dirty Feed Parser
Quick and Dirty Feed Parser is an open-source .NET project used for consuming Atom and RSS feeds in a fashion that abstracts away all of the painful parsing that a developer would normally have to do in order to consume said feeds.
The point of the project is extreme ease-of-use when it comes to consuming Atom and RSS. You can read more about the project here: http://qdfeed.codeplex.com/

I need some icons to incorporate into the project itself - I'm trying to brand the project for other .NET developers, Silverlight developers, and Windows Phone 7 developers and I want to them know that Quick and Dirty Feed Parser (sometimes abbreivated as qd feed parser or qdfeed) is the easiest, best choice for consuming these two types of feeds.
Here are my requirements
1. All icons need to illustrate that Quick and Dirty Feed Parser makes it effortless to work with RSS and Atom syndication feeds
2. I need an icon for .NET, Silverlight, and Windows Phone 7 - these are the different development platforms that Quick and Dirty Feed Parser supports. One way to do this would probably be to combine a base QD Feed icon with the icons / logos used by Microsoft to represent there platforms. Here's what the Silverlight logo looks like, for instance: http://www.onex-group.com/Img/silve…t_logo.png
