The age of the moblog

Yes as you may of guessed from the previous entry the moblog is in gear. Prepare to be amazed by low quality blogging from my Motorola V600!

What is Crossfader?

Usually nobody would pay attention to a website like Crossfader. Well not this time since Robert Scoble mentioned it on his blog.

Here's an interesting bit of information

It now seems like it's spreading across the internet at a good rate of knots, people trying to work out what on Earth it's all about... Microsoft's version of GarageBand, a Microsoft Podcasting application? What are they up to now?

To port or not to port

I dug out an old application I wrote for RISC OS the other day, if you knew me back when I was 12 or 13, you could well remember this massive un-finished project of mine.

It was called The Night Sky (yes obvious infringements there) it spanned about 10, 1.6MB floppy disks, and what did it do? It was a simple astronomy program that spouted out lots of information about constellations, and various major objects in the sky.

It was never completed, Windows 95 was pushing it's way onto the scene and I found myself with a PC, bye bye RISC OS. The application was stuck on a hard drive and put away in the cupboard. Where it stayed about 70% complete.

Then it hit me, why not re-develop the application for Windows? Well it's got some bad points, it would have to be totally re-rewritten, I'd have to think of a new name. But then it has some good points, it'll run in a window and you'll be able to use a mouse!

I'd guess it would take about 150 hours to develop the application for Windows. Should I, or shouldn't I?

Bill blog

Bill Gates:

I've toyed with doing a blog myself, but I don't want to be one of those people who start and then don't finish it, and again I'm thinking maybe I could do one a month or one every six weeks--something like that.

Come on, you know you want to! But let's make sure it's a real blog, and not some snazzy monthly press release. Just make sure to include the opinions and view points expressed in this blog are not necessarily those of the Microsoft Corporation or it's partners.

Happy New Year
