OK. Blogging has never really grabbed me, but Sarah has told me on more than one occasion that I should start. Not that this is my first start. Lets see if I can keep it up this time.

What I'm up to right now is:

  • Research. Right now I'm rewriting a lot of my old code before I do anything else. My early code was written quickly, with little testing and has been extensively modified since I started. Now I need well written, fully tested code so that I can feel safe basing the rest of my research on the results it gives me.
    Hopefully the Uni. will let me make this stuff Free. We'll see.
  • Working with Sarah on CoFfEE. Which stands for Compiler Friendlification and Error Explanation. Sarah doesn't much like the friendlification bit, but I think that that's the bestest bit. If anyone has a better idea, let us know.
  • Unfortunately, the first two items (the first one mainly) take up most of the time I'm prepared to sit in front of my computer. In the spare time I do have I play with my dog, make (terrible) music, listen to (great) music, watch more films than is probably healthy, start writing apps that I don't have time to finish (a linux tracker in the style of Impulse (but obviously better :), a great idea for a simple but addictive network game, and more), read (I spend about as much on books each month as I do on food), and try to reduce my use of brackets and black-countryisms.
