I’ve been fairly quiet on the blog the past two weeks. This has been because I have been head down in code catching up from the holidays and being sick. I know all to well how abstract and vague I’ve been on what The Project is. I’m still shooting for a grand unveiling upon the [...]

This has been a personally hard week for The Project. Iin moving the data structures to MySQL as a database I had to also start developing Java servlet code. The reason for this is that it creates both the ability to have a Web-API for any number of clients: iOS, Android, Win, Mac, etc… while [...]

A happy new year to all! May we all join in peace with the shared knowledge that for the next month we shall all be writing “20134″ The reason I put “Vacation” in quotes like that, is that when you are the sole coder on a project of your own devising for your own release [...]

Important Java tip: In a try-catch-finally block, finally is always called. Do not assume that you are in finally because your try threw an exception. Cleaning up resources that you built in try during finally will really make your program fail.

With the holidays, the usual entertainment segment of the blog has been on holiday. We do promise not one, but two post Sing Off wrap-ups. I’m pleased to announce that many of you really seemed to enjoy the Armchair Judge; so we’ll be bringing her on as permanently as she wishes to participate. But onto [...]

Fear not friends, there will be a SingOff post or two today. Today I’ve been working on the back end of my software. UI is one thing, but you can only get so far with ‘lorem ipsum‘ data. Well, okay… in my case some fake data that sort of fits the project. So today, I [...]

Well, here’s the accomplishment of the evening. Been working on the code project and managed to completely grok Objective-C auto layout including the Visual Format Language. And I’ve managed to do this with animations. It was very much a bumpy road; but the end effect is Soooooooooooo much better than the first draft of the [...]

I have been known for having a penchant for finding a pet project and then blithely moving onto something else. It could be surmised by my silence on the project followed by a huge shift into analysing “The Sing Off” that once again I’ve been side tracked by something new and shiny. I am however [...]

After working in the corporate, startup, and educational enterprise space for about 15 years with about 10 years of freelance added in there, I've added up about 20 years of computer experience.

This experience includes, but isn't limited to: Software Engineering, Project Design, Project Architecture, Team Management, Budgeting, Forecasting, Trends Analysis, and most importantly, Schmoozing. (The latter of which many of you were probably wondering how to spell)

Well, I'm finally going to come public. At least about why I've not been posting a lot and what I am up to. As a few friends are aware, I've embarked on a new project. At this time, I'm not going to make the details of this project public. Those friends I've given any details to directly about it, have actually been asked to sign an NDA.

Basically, I am coding again. And if you thought NewsAccess was a labour of love, you ain't seen nothing yet.

What does this all mean? )

What have you been doing )

I'm very excited, very wired, and very much in need of a cup of sedating tea so that I don't work another 6 hours now.

Short, short form translation: I'm reading LJs, but very haphazardly. Maybe once every 2-3 days. I'm not posting as much as usual, but I will make the occasional post. And if you're really curious as to what I have under the blanket, you'll have to email me directly (do not ask me in the comment fields) and we can discuss it further via email or IM.

Happy bounce :)

Well task more than project. I thought it was done. Yes one of those little ickydoms. This is much like Buffy trying to figure out how to make the woman asking for the Mummy-Hand happy. If you don't understand the reference, you are not watching the right TV show on Tuesday nights.
Now I sit waiting to find out if my last fix helped the situation....

Zzzzzzz
