I managed to work on ecto a bit on Friday evening and late into the night last night. I didn’t go to bed until 2:50 AM! I was planning to work most of today on ecto as well but my PC laptop refused to connect to the Wi-Fi network this afternoon, and thus no CVS access. After trying to fix it for 30 minutes and I couldn’t find a single ethernet cable in the apartment I took that as a sign and gave up. I ended up playing Rogue Spear until 4 PM when I went to the cinema with Leah to see The Grudge starring Sarah Michelle Gellar… 🙂
I did manage to work on a number of items this evening when we got back from the cinema. The new UI is 90% done. But as my boss at my first programming job said,
“You spend 10% of the time working on the first 90% of the project, then spend 90% of the time for the last 10% of the work.”
So even though the UI is stable now, I am sure I will be spending time polishing up once more people start testing it.
There are also a few server issues (Blogware compatibility, Conversant compatibility, Blogger UTF-8 encoding (or rather lack of), and MT running on XP/SP2/IIS5 to name but a few) that I need to clear up before releasing this new version for public beta testing.
