live.WIPUP now available.

I’ve decided to run a live version of WIPUP alongside the monthly updates and it can be accessed at live.wipup.org. The release announcement can be found here.

I’ve been a busy little bee these few days, starting driving lessons, starting full-time programming work as well as learning C++, and finally finishing my first ever ADOM game. WIPUP’ll be updated regularly with my ongoing projects but hopefully I’ll get a few general articles written for this blog soon. Meanwhile, here’s a really good article I read the other day called The Nerd Handbook.


WIPUP 21.02.10 released and out in the wild.

WIPUP is a way to conveniently share progress on your projects. Given the mix of solutions used before such as work-in-progress forum threads, blog posts, mailing lists and microblogging, we’re creating a flexible and friendly solution to answer the question “what’s up?”.

People focus so much on the finished product they ignore the beauty of the creation process behind it.

Yep, it’s WIPUP 21.02.10a and it’s still (denoted by the postfix “a”) alpha. This means it’s unfinished and not yet ready for the general public. However despite this a huge amount of progress has been made since the first and a lot of polish along with it. I highly recommend those who’ve been edging towards trying WIPUP out to take the leap. The full details are given in the release notes (comments appreciated).

After you’ve skimmed through the release notes go check out the site. Or if you’re curious you can check out my profile, which serves as a pretty good demo of WIPUP in use.

As for potential developers, here’s a friendly reminder that WIPUP is open-source and I’d love to see a few new faces.

Time for a break.


WordPress Updated

As usual, I’m about two versions behind. (2.6.1) I’ve decided to stop procrastinating and upgrade WordPress. Happy to say it was flawless and we’re now running on 2.6.3.

(Wow great excuse to use up a whole post – don’t worry I’ve got stuff in store)
