So, first of all… *pokes amonre to fix the MystBlogs font problem* :P
I went to work yesterday helping a guy get a website set up. I’m a big fan of the open-source Moodle program. While it is designed primarily for schools, I’ve found that (like most open-source stuff) it can be adapted to suit the individual needs of a project. I tend to like open-source web projects, especially ones that work well as Content Management Systems (Moodle, WordPress, etc.).
Anyways, something has apparently inspired me to get some of my old projects done (non of them web-related). Last night I released PCSCCC, and tonight I have a rewritten my D’ni Clock application. Available for download here (.zip format). As much as my productivity seems to be high, I really don’t think that a working version of HuruStudio will be available within the next few weeks (although I’d love for it to be released). I am still aiming for a primary release in the early-mid fall though. *crosses fingers*
Now, what is this? Three blog posts in less than 72 hours?! Unheard of :P
I think everyone is worried about the “Season Finale” of Uru Live. Despite knowing that it won’t happen until mid-late October, everyone fears a repeat of the closure in 2004. Chucker has summed everything up rather nicely on his blog. Read it! (if you haven’t already).
Beta 1 is available now
For those who might not know, PCSCCC is short for “Paradox’s C-Sharp Cyan Chat Client”; and has been an ongoing project of mine for close to a year. Tonight I present to you the first Beta release (think Linux beta, not Microsoft beta). It requires Microsoft’s .NET Framework version 2.0 or higher (Mono will run it, but there are a few bugs in Mono itself that render it nearly unusable).
I could rehash the release notes here… but instead I’ll direct you to the PCSCCC info page.
For those who want a direct download link: PCSCCC (.zip format).
Yesterday, I finally got fed up with cho kicking people randomly, so I added some features to my client and released it.
Any and all bug reports are welcome, please send them to dvpdiner2 [AT] yahoo [DOT] com. A subject header of “PCSCCC” would be appreciated.
This program required the .NET Framework 2.0 in order to run; .NET should have been installed as part of Windows Automatic Updates.
I had to upgrade WordPress yesterday, and I decided to update the theme so that it would match the front-page Flash better.
Announcing the creation of the “Uru KI” theme for WordPress! :D
BSP is my company relating to all things technological. Right now, we have nothing completed; but hopefully by the end of the summer we might have something useful to show the world.
One of our big projects for Blue Starlight is the GEO Generation online family tree wiki. It’s up and running at http://geo.elwiki.com/ – again, hopefully temporarily. Feel free to create an account there and add yourself and your family to the growing collection of names there.
IRL: My sister just left for a week-long camp, and I start a C++/DirectX programming camp on Monday. Let’s see where this takes me and Blue Starlight.
