    Good Turn (iOS)

    The Good Turn application is a simple yet hi-tech replacement for the age-old good turn coin carried by many scouts to remind them to “Do a good turn daily.” It was primarily designed for the iPhone and iPod touch. It works on the iPad in the double-size mode. The fully functional application is free of charge. Additional in-app purchases provide different stylized coins, bronze, silver, and gold, for flipping each time a good turn is done. The cost of these goes towards keeping the web companion site running, future development, and most importantly supporting our local Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts.

    Using Git with Subversion for a New Project

    A few weeks before leaving for a conference, where connectivity was in question, I asked the question, “how can I continue to use version control on my project?” Subversion has been my best friend for quite a while, both at work and home. Even though most of my projects are single-developer project, the work, test, check-in cycle has been the staple of my work cycle. It allows me to be ruthless with removing large chunks of code, with re-factoring like a madman, and letting the keyboard take over in tying new approaches.

Looking through the project notebook makes me think, “o.k., which one are you going to do?”

    InOut Board Adium/Libpurple Plugin

    A libpurple plugin adapted to work in Adium, the Mac OS X instant messaging client. The purpose of the plugin is to coordinate with our local staff In Out Board, a virtual equivalent to regular office magnetic in out boards showing who is in the office and who is not. This makes the actual work of the plugin useless outside our small environment. However, the method of creating a plugin, the wrapper code for Adium and libpurple plugins, and the documentation here are all potentially useful.
