New Year

It's been a while since my last post. A lot has happened.

I've been working on a couple big projects. One is the enhancement of KreativePop.com, Penny's art site that I built for her in 2006. Another is a program called 'Home' for my parents.

Kreative Pop is pretty much done. I've moved all the content into a database and created a content management system. Also added a new area (yet to be launched) for upcoming events such as shows and exhibitions.

As for Home, it's quite a large project and I've done something this time that I haven't done before... I bought a component for the project. Scheduling is at the core of Home, and I knew I couldn't get away with trying to present a half-baked attempt at a recreation of the Microsoft Outlook calendar. It's just insulting to people who have used and come to rely on Outlook. Therefore I turned to CodeJock Software and their CalendarPro component. I saved myself months of interface development (and possible failure) for only $99. Nice.

Anyway, needless to say those two things (along with another project for an old client that just sparked up again) have been keeping me quite busy. I even had to schedule out my work time so I wasn't ignoring Heather too much :/
