It’s down to the wire now, less than 1 hour to go

Well, I got about 50% of my planned features done. I’ll just keep correcting the layout till ten minutes to midnight, check in the last changes, and them I’m gonna crash till about noon tomorrow. My dad’s Father’s Day party is at 1 p.m.

On Monday, I’ll deploy my Rails Day entry on my server. So you can all laugh and point fingers at my naive web design. I never claimed to be a web designer, I am a developer. It’s not the same thing. I don’t have the graphical talent needed for web design, whereas development is mostly about logic. Right brain vs. left brain, and I don’t have the right brain for it (pun not intended, I swear!)

I’ll post a post-mortem later: why I didn’t finish, what held me up the most, what was simplest.

PS – Happy Father’s Day, Ken, and my other “childrened” readers. :-)

About dreadpiratepj

I have been goofing around with computers since May 1978, when I was about seven years old. For the past decade, I've even managed to have people pay me for this! Suckers! :-)

    Thanks, PJ! Just got off the phone with #1 daughter, and today’s NASCAR event is about ready to start. Life is good.

    Sounds like a cool project (from your description on the rails day blog), I’d like to see this and maybe help out with finishing it, if you’re interested.

  3. Scott, thanks for the comment. I’ll be cleaning up the code through the week and posting it up on rubyforge. Of course, you’re welcome to join me. I’ll contact you on your blog once the project is up.

  4. Actually, now that I think about it, my server has plenty of unused bandwidth (500 GB/month.) And I’ve always wanted to learn how to set up a public Subversion server with proper write-access control.

    So I think, from now on, I’ll host my own open source projects, instead of putting them up on rubyforge or sourceforge.

    Also it is in keeping with the original vision for the site as a source of hacks and tricks. Which I’ll get to in a second. :-)

    Go, PJ, go! Good luck. Looking forward to see the finished product
