It’s been almost two months since I’ve posted here, so to avoid the risk of this blog becoming a dinosaur, I thought I would post an update.
Katrina and I returned from our 6-7 week road trip in the beginning of July. We drove out to California at the end of May, and stayed with family for several weeks (also hitting WWDC, of course). On the way out there, we took the northern route, hitting Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, the Tetons, and the Salt Flats. On the way back, we started in Santa Monica and drove Route 66 all the way through St. Louis, taking the freeway the rest of the way home after running out of time. We’ll have to drive the rest of Route 66 from St. Louis to Chicago sometime soon. Overall, it was quite a trip. Watch my Flickr stream for photos of the trip.
Been working on finishing up DynDNS Updater 2.0, which will hopefully be ready soon. The app is looking pretty good. A lot of smaller details have been improved upon since beta 5, that collectively improve the application quite a bit.
Trying to spend some time working on Seasonality’s international forecast as well. I’ll post more on this at a later point in time, but I’ve created some cool imagery and animations that I’ll be using to tweak the forecast generator to make it more accurate.
C4 is coming up this weekend! I’ll be taking off for Chicago tomorrow for a weekend of Indie fun. I’ll be showing an entry for the Iron Coder Live contest…which reminds me I still need to fix a bug or two there. Should be a blast. I’ll most likely be keeping my Twitter feed up to date more than posting here about stuff.
Speaking of Twitter, I started Twittering (is that a word?) a few months ago, and I’m hooked. If you don’t know, Twitter is a place to post Tweets, which are short bits of text (no longer than 160 characters), usually telling others what you’re up to. My first thought was how much time I would be wasting by doing this, but the whole idea is that posting a Tweet is supposed to be really quick. It provides some nice breaks throughout the day, and the community building around the site is pretty amazing. Check out my Twitter page, and if you’re interested, sign up and start using Twitter yourself.
That’s all folks…
