Resumé August 2009

Writing migration complete

Okay, so technically I should have been getting ready for work this morning, but I just had to get all of my writing migrated over. Went a lot smoother than I expected. Now I’ve got to look through my collection and see if there’s some more I can format and upload.

But until then, next step is pointing the domain here instead of the old site. Maybe during my lunch break today. Almost done!


Software migration complete

So far the migration is coming along smoothly, and so far tonight I’ve finished migrating the software section of the site. The move has reminded me that I need to better address that software, namely by putting those that aren’t in source control into LaunchPad.

I don’t want to have to continue doing what I do now, which is host binaries on my own servers (WP.com doesn’t allow zip files, but really, these projects need source control).

So I need to work on TEGS, fix the Weight Tracker, and port PunishPad over to wxPython. No problem!
