Small update.

Things are going pretty well lately so I thought I’d better make a post about it.

Since the last post (~3 months ago) I’ve been very busy doing uni work (tests, projects, studying, etc) so I had no real time to focus on any of my own projects. After my exams, I’ve had last week to work on my own projects and I also have this coming week to update/fix any of my apps, or even start a new secret one that I’ve been planning for a very long time.

As far as uni goes everything is going pretty smooth. Came out with very nice marks in all modules for coursework and I’ll hopefully get my exam marks in the next few weeks.

Booked a holiday around Christmas time to Amsterdam with Andrea, heading off in the next 2 weeks AFAIK but then again I’m not 100% sure. Completely awful with remembering dates. Also had to send off for my passport a few days ago as, until last week, I didn’t know I had lost it. Pushing it for time but I’ve sent it off marked as ‘express’ so it should be here next week!

Just today I pushed a new update (beta 10) of my APK Swapper. Fixed a pretty embarrassing bug that had me stressing.

That’s really all that’s been happening! I might make a post here soon teasing at my new project that I’ll hopefully make a start on tomorrow night when I head back up to my uni house.

As I always say, I’ll try to keep this blog updated.

Laters.

What’s been going on lately.

So, things have been a bit hectic for the last few months. Not to set you back to reading a wall of text but it was a bit of a hassle to get back in to uni as well as getting the funding again. That being said I’m currently sitting in a lab class studying Prolog again. Everything so far is going well, I’ve done quite a bit of web development and some C++ (including a hangman game which I have included at the bottom of this post).

Apart from everything being crazy with uni I’ve managed to get a job outside of the work I do myself (websites, repairs, etc) with the local repair shop in town. The good thing is that I can do m own work along side working with them and they also want me on any breaks I have from uni which is fantastic.

So, REALbasic lessons are gone. Completely gone. Not one bit of them remain (reasons why were explained in another post). So, what do? Well tonight, hopefully, I’ll start the lessons again and will include some PHP and C# ones alongside a few graphic design lessons if at all possible. That’s something to look forward to, right? It’s annoying because of two reasons – a) I worked hard for them and people were showing quite a bit of interest in them; b) they would have looked well on my CV. Both of these reasons combined is what is driving me to replace those lessons and add even more. Keep checking here for new lessons.

I’ll try to keep updating this blog.

Hangman.cpp – Src.

New ABGX360ISO Announcer in development. Also, what’s been going on.

Been some time since I’ve updated this blog but I’ve had a few thing going on.

Re-applied for Uni again, got back in. Starting hopefully in September going straight in to year 2, only if StudentFinance NI decide that they wanna give me money. If I get no real funding from them then I don’t go back. Simples!

REALbasic lessons – They are 100% gone. Even though MultiUpload came back online, they didn’t bring my files with them unfortunately and my eHDD (as previously stated) has kicked the bucket so I have nothing to replace the dead online files with. Sorry guys!

Now, onto ABGX360ISO Announcer V3! Well, not that much to say really. I’ve just started developing it a few moments ago. I’ll write a more detailed W.I.P post about it soon, but it should include a few really cool things over it’s predecessor. It’ll all be done in C# .NET this time instead of REALbasic. If you have any feature requests, get them in now!

Oh I almost forgot, my Android .APK Swapper app is doing pretty well. So I’m happy about the amount of downloads and I’ve fulfilled a few feature requests in it.

That’s about it from me, but I’ll try to keep this blog updated regularly.

Laters!

REALbasic Lessons – Where are they?

Well it seems that the server at Multiupload has shut down, which to be quite honest is a pile of steaming horse shit as there was no real notification for those of us who are storing legitimate files to back them up. This means I lost all of my REALbasic tutorials I had stored on there. I did have a backup on an eHDD which up until now has been veeeerry reliant but it has also died. I am going to try and take apart the eHDD and maybe connect it to a PC and see if that will boot, maybe the USB connection is just fried…. maybe I can only hope.

Sorry about this, sorry to anyone who was trying to download files.

Good news – I now have a new laptop! Which means I will be getting back in to developing a few things and I will brush up on my programming / web development / graphics design and when I do I’ll post a few tutorials.

Oh, and I’ll update about the eHDD story as I troubleshoot the PoS.

What I’ve been upto.

Well, having finished sharpUpdate I have not coded a single line since then. Shocking. I have no projects that I can think of to start and no motivation anymore. Check out my About Me page to get a feel of what I mean.

On the plus side though I cannot get enough of R/Trees, it’s too awesome. It was always awesome but I stopped going on there for a while and was sticking to R/Programming, R/F7U12, R/Gaming and R/GamingNews.
The Ents on Trees are just too funny, the music is awesome and some of the pictures are just outstanding.

Still doing web development, have 1 more client almost finished. Just needs a few more tweaks and that another one shipped out, trouble is gonna be finding the next client :/.
For anyone who is sick of the “safe” fonts used by most web developers then you may want to check out these fonts. Extremely easy to use and very effective.

For now, that is all.

Currently listening to; this
Fucking Ents, you guys know the best music.

What’s been going on?

Well followers, yes again I am assuming I have followers. So what.

Not much has been going on recently, I changed courses from Computing with Games Development on over to Computer Science Software Systems Development. Moar programming ftw.

Random news, I’m patiently waiting on the new release of melodyMe by Matt Ryder. The app is fantastic as it is now and it includes Twitter support so you can Tweet whatever you are listening to, y’know just to show off which genre of music you listen to. The new version will have Facebook support and lots more awesome ideas. It will set you back a very small one off fee of 99p but as far as music streaming apps goes this one would be worth alot more.
Download this app now for free to check out how good it is and get a feel for it before buying it, which you should.

Also for any programmers out there check this out, made me laugh. What if Visual Studio had achievements?
You all know they are true and you would have earned alot of them already!

sharpUpdate is coming along quite nicely, look on through this blog for a quick update on what’s new and what’s upcoming.

All in all that’s quite it. Post if you want tutorials or source code for anything. Except sharpUpdate.
