After several weeks of heavy pounding, I have finished up a project. Yes, it's a web-based app in Java. Struts, Hibernate, Ant, XDoclet - the usual suspects. It's featured on my web site's home page.
I am working angles to try to find my way in the stormy seas of kids, education and software. Software for kids is mostly either insipid or irrelevant, and in either case is highly unlikely to be a source of sufficient revenue.
