|One Year Ago,
Saturday - Yard work day. I put off
doing stuff during the week, because it's easy to avoid working on the
app when doing that, but the weekend is free time!
I want to
finish with pavers in the side yard, but before I do that I need to
have a place to put excavated dirt. The plan is to build a little
planter along the east wall, and put in roses to catch the mid-day and
afternoon sun. But I need to get landscape blocks for that. And that
means I need to move the giant pile of dirt in the pathway. Which I can
put into the tomato planters. Which meant clearing them out, knocking
down the dead plants, removing the (screwed in) cages, and setting the
irrigation lines to one side. Which mean getting the wheelbarrow out,
to get rid of the leafy debris and move the dirt. Which meant emptying
the firewood out of the wheelbarrow. Which in turn....
Well, I'm sure you get the idea. A 'dependency chain' is what they call it in software engineering.
Anyway, by about 6pm I was done, and my back hurt. Iburprofen and a hot shower were calling....
- Not much to say. The weather is definitely cooling down.
just working away on things, trying to treat the app thing like a real
business. Indeed, it's almost been a year since we created the official
partnership. Everyone has been busy, but I'm the long pole in the tent
right now, not a comfortable position.
Book #5 was A Red Herring without Mustard (Flavia de Luce #3), by Alan Bradley. Excellent.
Riley and Jimmy (foreground) sharing my lap. Suzy is out of frame, on top of the couch behind my head.
Thursday 30 January
- Tried to do a long walk, but the gale force winds and occasional bits
of rain sent me scurrying for home after only 3 miles or so. I realize
that I don't have a windbreaker in the house - sweaters, jackets, etc,
but no simple shells. They are all down on the boat I guess.
Other than that, worked on the app.
Wednesday 29 January
Kind of gray and overcast.
on the app all day. These things take time... I did get out and have a
nice lunch with a friend, then back to the grind. We discussed in depth
some of the extensions to the app that I need to implement. I'd been
ignoring them until I got confident I could do the simple things, but
it's time. Color Version 4.0 is going to be nearly what we want. I'm
skipping a couple of things that I can go back and put in any time, but
I hope it to be 90% functional, then we'll start inserting the graphics
that we want.
- Keeping busy.
a nice walk, 5 miles, since the weather was so pleasant. And, you
know, it's been a while since I had a "found CD" photo:
- Working on the app. Trying to get back into the zone.
emailed, mentioned that the whiskey measurements seemed off - 1.5mL is
about an eyedropper. So, yeah, I should have used deci-Liters, not
mil-liters. Heh. But zero is zero, in any measurement system.
I saw this on Tumblr, the USS Dahlgren in the foreground, with UNREP of another Farragut class taking place in the distance - during a gale!
- Warm and sunny.
The pro bowl was on, but I didn't get around to watching. It's usually
pretty much of a yawner, and although they promised to make it more
interesting this year, it seems unlikely.
