11001 Birthday :)

Saturday the 6th of May is my birthday shin-dig at Tequilarea at 155 Hindley St City at 8pm. All welcome - hope to see you there! (I couldn't resist the use of my favourite pic).

K'hap! Taekwondo...

I've been instructing at Salisbury now for about a month and I'm really starting to enjoy it. Good students in both the kids and adults classes. I think this centre might be where I end up for a while which will be good. Here's some pics from tonights class though I've realised the phone camera just isn't gonna cut it!

Part of a growing community

The rails community is growing rapidly with a swag of projects now adopting the framework. I, for one, am very impressed and will never go back to Java. I won't touch .Net with a 10' pole anyway! Take a look under N for our old pal NetFox :)

int foo = bar();

Well I never! I new about the classic programmer nomenclature but I had no idea those military cats had so many damn acronyms! It puts the modern geek to shame :)

Holy Crap! I think its finished!

Sometimes I wondered if I would ever finish this thing, but well, now I have! NetFox 3.8 is officially finished. The Easter long weekend was spent, for the most part, in solitude. All sense of time and reality ceased as the final shreds of code oozed onto the screen. Tomorrow is the real test. There has been a fair amount of real world testing already but tomorrow marks the beginning of install week! We are doing 12 installs over the next two week s so it better bloody work! Fingers crossed :)

Code Machine!

Ok so I haven't really been working on CoolTracker (April Fools! for those of you who missed the joke) but I have been coding like some kind of primate nonetheless. Consequently, I thought it appropriate to post this illustration Dad did a couple of years ago. I think it represents my obsessive nature quite well :)

Keep track of your *cool*

Our latest product is almost ready! Its called CoolTracker and it does just that - tracks your cool. Everyday you record what you wear, what you eat and everything you say to CoolTrackers super intuitive, ergonomic, browser-based, AJAX, web 2.0 interface and it will calculate your cool factor for the day. Over time you can use its stastical trends menu to see if you are getting cooler or becoming more of a loser. We expect to sell 400 copies in April and overtake sales of NetFox in a very short period. I mean, really, who doesn't want to be cool? UPDATE: April Fools!
