At one point I had SdiDesk converted to VB.NET because VB Classic was clearly deprecated and maybe VB.NET was the future. In the event I never really liked this idea or immersed myself in VB.NET. But the code was sitting around on Google Code hosting. Now Google Code is shutting down, I did the automatic […]
Second in a series of questions occupying my mind at the beginning of 2014. Which may (or may not) inform what I’ll be working on. 2) What About Project ThoughtStorms? Unlike the first question in the series, this one is relatively light. It’s obvious that OWL is the new SdiDesk. And where my private personal […]
Question : Hey Phil, do you actually do any programming these days? Answer : Yes. Quite a lot at the moment. Though it’s a bit all over the shop. I’m dipping a toe into Android programming. (And, hmmm … Java …. I thought I’d got over my Java hangups by doing a lot of Processing, […]
Smart Disorganized Individual philosophy is about doing things piecemeal; engaging in small opportunistic actions as and when the inspiration strikes. Today was just such a quick burst with the Smallest Federated Wiki. I love SFW a lot, but it’s a bit of a pain to bring a page or large chunk of writing from elsewhere […]
ThoughtStorms has been ported across to the Smallest Federated Wiki. Of course, there are plenty of failures, missing pages, bits of markup that aren’t handled correctly etc. But this is wiki, right? It’s never perfect. It’s always living and dying and composting. The problems will get flushed out, or worked-around, or become charming ruins over […]
As mentioned previously, I’ve been looking into Ward Cunningham’s “Smallest Federated Wiki” concept. And I’m increasingly impressed. So much so, that I’ve re-oriented a lot of my projects around it. What do I mean? A decent follow-up to SdiDesk has been promised for an embarrassingly long time. Over the years I’ve struggled with exactly what […]
Import question. Is anyone currently using SdiDesk? Write in the comments if you are.
Not making as much progress on SdiDesk.NET as I thought I would. How can Visual Studio 2008 be soooo S-L-O-W? I swear it takes between 30 seconds and minute both to start and stop(!!!) my program executing. At least with punched cards you knew where you were.
It’s definitely SdiDesk week this week. Watch the repository.
Quick answer to the guy who used yesterday’s Form Experiment to ask what’s happening with SdiDesk … Here’s the status report : 1) In the last couple of weeks I quit my job and moved back to the UK … which has been taking up quite a lot of my time and energy. 2) Once […]
