Hi there.

It’s been 3 months since I last got around to updating this blog. So some catching up seems in order. My project for college is going reasonably well, I’ve got a working application, which matches the initial TOR. I’ve also managed to implement another version of it which does 3D Pythagoras Theorem questions, but they need integrating fully to make them selectable from the menu (plus an option for random types of question needs sorting out). Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the Plug-In version to work at the moment so I’ll have to come back to that later. For some reason, Amanda has changed my supervisor from being her to Adam, odd (well not that odd if you know Amanda).

My other course is not Integrating Business Websites as it was originally supposed to be, but instead, I’m doing Client Server Solutions with Jim. Which can only be a bonus, as I think that this is one course which plays to my strengths. We’ve done out patented Jim Use/Change Analysis thing and are now implementing a client to talk to Jim’s server in VB6, nice.

I’ve been playing with Python and PyQt, and I’m thinking that after graduation I might try and limit myself to Python, Lisp and maybe C# for all of my programming needs. In fact other than learning Lisp for Lisp’s sake I might try and just do Python (as we have PyGame, PyQt, PyGTK and Django) which pretty much covers everything I want to do.

I need to do some stuff on the school website, like install Drupal to allow other users to add content, and finish implementing DtMonitor (maybe I should rewrite in Python using Django?).

Connor has moved to BCPS, as we think he had outgrown where he was and was in need of a change. Plus we didn’t think he would get in at the local Catholic school so if we wanted to guarantee a place at somewhere decent we needed to move him now.

He seems to be enjoying it.

Anyhow time for bed.
