29 September 2018
Saturday - Still pretty warm.
I worked on the eaves until mid-afternoon, when heat and wind made it too
unpleasant. Things are proceeding...
Friday 28 September
Friday - Hot.
Worked on the app some more.
Hot, in the high 90's again.
Worked on the app, despite temptations to work on various house things, and
succeeded in debugging most things. I will own to errors, but they are
in the round-about methods that Apple forced me into :-(
Not much going on other than that.
Wednesday 26 September
Wednesday - Hot, into the high 90's.
I made a trip down to Ojai with a friend. I'm a backup
trustee/executor for someone and there were some things that needed to be
ironed out. It all went fine - including the traffic, but it took much
longer than I expected and I didn't get the chance to get some personal
business in Camarillo done. No big deal though.
And I was comped dinner at In-N-Out on the way home, so it's all good.
Very tired on arriving home, and surprised to discover it was still 90F at
7:30pm in the AV, Ojai had been pleasantly warm and Ventura almost
I really want to go hiking, or at least walking around the
neighborhood, but managed to step on a thorn while walking about in
flip-flops in the yard. Now its buried right in the ball of my right
foot, in the middle of the scar tissue from the surgery a couple of years
ago. I imagine it will be dissolved in week or so, but it's annoying to have
one more delay.
25 September 2018
Tuesday - Warming up here in the valley.
I worked on the app's SETTINGS scene most of the day. It's mostly
working, but occasionally the game level is getting confused, or at least
the display of the game level (separate things really), during scene
segues. I only discovered this at the end of the day, when I thought I
was done with that part. Arrgghhh.
I took an hour to do a bit of sanding and primer painting in the master
bath. It's a good way to get one's frustrations out.
Monday - In the 90's again.
Working on the app in the afternoon. Things are coming along, but there is a
lot of grunt work that Apple should have done for me - conditional segue's
for example. People have been asking about them since Apple forced segues
onto the developers years ago, and have been forced to write their own logic
and actions, just as if segues had never been introduced.
A nice full moon in the evening.
Sunday - Nice. Did some shopping.
I need to get a hobby that doesn't require the use of my hands, or a
computer, as I said last week. Did some reading.
Book #33 was Ready
Player One, by Ernest Cline. I didn't enjoy it as much as I
expected, to be honest. Lots of explanatory stuff interrupts the flow
of the novel, it starts off with a diatribe against religion and God, people
in trailers are drug addicted trash, global warming is real, evil
multi-national corporations are everywhere (that part is true, but it's
been done), and a host of other check-the-box politically correct
drivel. Too bad.
Glad it was a library book.
