Busy end of year!

It's been a CRAZY couple of weeks! Pressing demands at the day job, ongoing work with Change Round-Up.

I took the past several days, however, to take a mental break. Sure, to some people, that means not writing code, maybe not even staring at a screen. For me, that meant exploring new technologies and environments, and knocking out the building blocks of a new open source .NET project.

In the past four days I have written what I believe to be the first .NET client for Pownce, and integrated its status-posting capabilities with Twitter as well. I've explored Python via IDLE on my Vista machine, and within Eclipse via PyDev on my Ubuntu desktop. I finally installed TortoiseSVN (necessary in order to interact with my PownceNET project on Google Code).

Busy few weeks, even busier few days! But fun and rewarding. Looking forward to more of the same in 2008.
