What is everyone working on right now?
« on: March 23, 2014, 02:37:23 am »
Just thought I'd ask to see what everyone is working on at the moment.

Personally, I'm re-exploring Django, but this time with Twitter's Bootstrap framework for the frontend just to see what I can put together. I made a relatively simple blogging platform tonight just to see what it would look like. I think I'm going to keep on experimenting for a while as I quite enjoy Django development and I'm loving Bootstrap's short design time and quick deployment.



EDIT: Yes I'm using Ubuntu right now. I tend to always use it the last couple of months before a Peppermint release just to see if there are any particularly good ideas lurking around anywhwere.

Nothing as far as tweaking/playing, just drowning in other peoples broken Windows machines as usual .. so if there's anything I can help with, I'd be happy to turn away from the Windows boxes for a while ;)

[EDIT]

And now the SSD on my sons Peppermint laptop has died  .. it's going to be one of those days  :o

I opened a new restaurant last week, called Ration and Dram.   Aside from all of that work, I got most of my garden planted, and have been trying to prepare my house for spring.   Computer-wise, I haven't been up to much.  I have been trying to learn a little bit more, compile all the photos for my portfolio,  formatting my online cookbook, and have been doing some work on plymouth and GTK themes.   I got hit by a car a few days ago, and between the solid concussion and sprained wrist, it is hard for me to sit in front of the computer for a while and I don't have the dexterity to really draw anything.  I'll be back to 100% in a few days though.

we're doing some research on a new desktop... since we have an '05 desktop and an '03 laptop still running WinXP... due to software which requires an MS platform... wish I could move hubby's new desktop to peppermintOS... but he's not in the mood for learning a new platform whilst following all the trading he does each day...

Saturday morning, we brought home a little doggie to fill some space left empty for a while... So I'm doing quite a bit of playing and walking...

I've been tied up mostly in labor disputes lately - grievances, arbitrators, attorneys - contract compliance and best practices, blah, blah, blah.

On the digital frontier, my Conky script continues to gain popularity, albeit in my absence.  It seems to have taken on a life of it's own.  Paramvir is doing a total rewrite on his most excellent Wunderground  weather module.  My Conky script tutorial has 221K views and 1500 replies, and advanced users have picked up the slack, while I'm distracted by real-life concerns.

Hopefully, things will simmer down soon, so I can get back to coding.  In particular, I want to write a visualizer for producing music videos, but I just don't have time to devote to that project, right now.

Bwahahaha!  I should take a #selfie.  It's getting dark in here (nightfall).  I'm surrounded by two laptops and a desktop box.  I'm doing tasks on all three displays.  Is it just me, or is everyone's life this crazy?  I'll turn on some lights when I'm done with this post.  Anyway...

Life would surely be a lot simpler if there were 52 days in a week, and 365 weeks in a year.  LoL!  :)

BTW, this site is looking great!  Kudos!

Let's see if I can post a screenie (of my road warrior)...



Close enough.  Good job!  ;)

Since August 2013 I've been working in a book shop, working retail hours.

Trying to get back into computer training / sales / remote support. Working at the mall pretty much takes over your life.

When I have time again, I am trying to learn Inkscape, so that I am no longer dependant on Corel Draw.

I think this topic is becoming seriously off topic, and I'm afraid I may have been the one that started it  :-[

As it's under "Development", I'm pretty sure Kendall originally meant "What development projects (if any) are people currently working on"

Not "having a go" at anyone, as I said it was probably my response sent it off topic .. just saying it should probably be allowed to come back "on topic" :)

Yes. As in, what code has everyone (anyone?) been writing, what is the function of said code, and how do you intend to implement it.  ;)

I just sent an email to Jeff Hoogland (of Bodhi Linux), wondering, in essence, if the Enlightenment desktop environment could become the desktop environment of the future, especially if LXDE is slowly fading away.

With the slow shift away from X11 and toward Wayland and Mir, it's going to be very surprising to see what happens with various desktop environments, especially the smaller projects.
