How I'm Spending Sunday

If it is not Sunday when you are reading this, you may wish to wait untill that day for maximum effect.

Or not.

Spending most of today using my computer. Thought I'd take the time to rip an old cassette I have from the Finnish band Terveet Kadet and make a CD. Not going well. The source material isn't terribly well recorded. GIGO. Sounds like mud no matter how much tweaking I do.

My other computer-related project is debugging a comic-book database I'm writing in Java. I've been working on this project in one form or another for over a decade. I get a useable product and then restart. I'm just having fun, so it doesn't really matter.

This post is totally off task. Doesn't fit into the structure I have for this blog at all.

Or does it?

Your java project sounds like one of mine, which is writing a scrabble-like game in Java. I get the networking stuff all done, then lose interest. Then, 6 months later, I'll re-write the networking stuff from scratch, get it working again, then lose interest. I've rarely made it to the actual UI, but then I don't find it interesting.

10 years on one project though... that's a big job!

In 10 years I've achieved usability 5 or 6 times. Just keep tweaking, though.
