Quantum for QuickBooks
Been working on Quantum today. It's really coming along. The user interface
is beautiful, and full route management support is implemented. The invoice
generation also works. Next on the list is to generate invoices for the
different routes, and also to allow for more customization in the invoices,
such as assigning each customer their own service charge.
The closing ceremony was pretty fun to watch. Makes me wish I could have
been there to see it. It was a shame that NBC spent so much time talking
about things. I would much rather have seen everything and listened to the
music. I can understand the need to do the interviews and stuff, though.
Maybe one of these days I'll be able to go out there and see the Olympics.
School is going to keep me busy the next few days. I managed to get most
of my Japanese homework done tonight. It's due tomorrow, but I can finish
the rest before class. I'm hoping I have nothing due in English tomorrow,
but I just can't remember. Too tired.
I do, however, have a *cough* fun *cough* assignment due Wednesday. I have
to do a small write-up on John Wesley Hardin. This kind of requires that I
get a book on him, but nobody in town carries one, so I'm kind of stuck.
There are resources online, but I really would have liked to find the book...
Package Management Article
I plan to start the initial draft of an article tomorrow on package
management. I want to submit it to FreshMeat.
It will contain my thoughts on what package management is missing, how it
can be improved, the requirements we'll need in the future, etc. Boring
description, yes, but it'll be better than that I think ;) I'll also
talk a little bit about GNUpdate, but the article isn't really
