4 Months Just Passed?!!

Huh... Almost 4 complete months have past since the last time I posted to this. Obviously, things have been hectic. The Cancer Portal has been back burnered for immediate deliverable work. But, I do plan on getting something going on this before the end of the year. It's not going to be easy, but I've got to try.

Working hard in Central 1.5 for some clients now. Two projects are currently under way. I've had to bag the idea of using the Agent on one of them. It became too confusing with the way data was being managed. Decided to use a dataMgr class and a dataProviderMgr Class instead. I was able to get stuff to work that way. I've noticed that the performance of 1.5 on a 'real' machine - not the dog I have at the office - seems to be acceptable... I'm judging on the 933 G4 at home... It looks good! Even snappy I'd say!

Through the end of the month I'll be focused on this stuff. Hopefully, by December, I'll have started to carve together the plan for the Portal. Sounds stupid, but I just watched the latest edition of Extreme Makeover Home Edition and the good that those people do has again inspired me to regain focus... whatever it takes right?

testing ectoBlogger

This is a test of the installed ectoblogger software on OSX

Blogging Software Comparison

Found some interesting stuff yesterday on software for blogging. Server side stuff that we might be able to leverage as the engine behind the interface. I'm going to start to get together some diagrams of the flow of the app this week.

Central or no?

We're working on using Central as the platform for myJourney. I need to work through the details on how and where the data get stored offline when using the app. I think Central can manage the stuff in the app, but I want to make it easy for the user to connect and publish stuff. 1.5 should be off beta and into full release soon... may be by the end of July or so. I'll start to get on the development around that time frame.

What's in a name?

I've been kicking around ideas for the name on the app. My favorite so far is "myJourney". I think it ties in well with the idea behind the applications as well as the results of the person, whether they be positive or negative. I thought that would be important.

myJourney... I like it.

And so it begins...

All good things must start somewhere. So, here we go. I'll be journaling the progress of the application for Cancer patients here. I hope this provides for some value later on. I think it probably will. I can at least keep my thought straight.
