The Flu

Posted in Project, Update on December 20, 2009 by modbow

You can guess twice who has been ill for several weeks and then doing a lot of recovering. If you guessed me, and I mean me me not you me, then you are completely correct. Thus you might think that the project is delayed. But no!  The project is still on track despite the nasty little flu weevils or whatnot. I’m guessing that it may be the time to disclose a few details about this project I’ve been talking about for some time by now. Well, firstly, apparently people don’t like to read about abstract things like this abstract project that doesn’t have any connection to the reality other than actually existing. This project is a program. I will not say what it’s name is, and will not give even it’s codename as it is a secret. There you have it. It’s a program

About the actual progress: There is something on the screen, such as text and some images and the lower level network code is running and there are a whole lot of unit-tests written that all succeed. The approximate number of lines of code is 9000 and the total number of lines with comments and empty lines is 15000.

In next post I might actually say a bit more about this program, but I will continue to talk only about features that are already implemented and tested. No hype! That’s one of the reasons for having such undercover blog. Don’t you just hate all these over-hyped things out there? Well, this is not one of them. Stay tuned and thanks for listening.

Things Tried

Well, it seems that there has been a long delay of updates. Something that I can no longer fix being myself fixed in time, but I can certainly stop the pause from getting longer. So… About the project status. It hasn’t been too good. H1N1 or something took over the developers nose and throat for almost 1.5 weeks. There have been some advancements, but nothing major.

Little warnings

Ahh… The beauty of network programming… Remember that it’s okay for recvfrom to return SOCKET_ERROR in case of non-blocking sockets. This error is not an error (usually). Didn’t remember it myself and just spent several hours trying to see what’s wrong with things.

Anyway, wanted to let you know that the project is still on schedule. I’ll be uploading a project status update later tonight.

EDIT: Failed to post project update due to network problems…

Hello world!

What would be a better title for first post about a truly magnificent software project? As the project codename says, the project itself is a secret. This blog exists to give information about how well the project is going and about its major updates. Perhaps when there is time I’ll also post a timetable and approximated time of readiness.
