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 [...]

This weak (sic) has been full of excitement. Thanks to the surgery which left me doped pretty much all week, I’ve gotten far less done than I wanted to. This is right down to having to push off an appointment from Friday to Monday as well as completely missing important mail from my land lady. [...]

With surgery on Tuesday coupled with the winter blast closing all local schools for two days; things slowed down this week for the project. I wish things were moving faster. Personally, I wish I could do more but I take each day as it comes. This week I started on improving the data entry system [...]

I’m back to wandering around the house in a somewhat tipsy manner. The tonne of Halcion they put me on wore off. I slept from 3 until 9:30. Now I have a mouthful of temporary apparatus. Smile picture in a few days when I am less self-conscious. Obviously there is hunger (having to eaten since [...]

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 [...]

This is going to be short and sweet. But after a few days of being utterly distracted with other things on the blog and endless phone calls today; I got the live data from the server to show up in the app. It formats correctly and even sorts on the fly. Now we’re cooking!

Well, it was bound to happen working on all the backend stuff today. Once I knew that I was reading the data in; today it was all about putting the data in a commonly accessible area; formatting the data for different calls; and then letting those calls bask in the glory of real data. At [...]

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 [...]
