Tool-sharpening (My evening in coding...)

Spent this evening on unbillable work for VexTech. Mostly refactoring code so that generic code is available for use across projects while the application-specific code is isolated within the app. When you build big apps you tend to get application-framework fragments embedded into the app, and if you don't move them to a shared location ...

To the Quick-silver Screen

How do I translate my grey life
To the quick-silver screen
Where women see the inner man
Forgiveness flows like summer rain
No dull-plodding hours wasted
Just thirty three minute scenes
It might be too short to live it
But maybe they could fill my dreams

Making menu prompts more flexible (Multiple fragments with support for different "saying" types)

I continue to work on the trivial voicemail system to flesh out StarPy's functionality. Tonight I added support to the menu prompt system such that you can have the menu read out audio files, numbers, digits, dates or the like in whatever combination you like while still working like a getOption(...) call as far as ...

New StarPy release up (Minor revision...)

There's a new StarPy release up on SourceForge. This has a couple of bug-fixes along with menu enhancements so that menu options can have an "onSuccess" callback specified which is called before returning from the menu option. Likely be tweaking that a bit more as I work on projects with the package.

Long day of talking (Pleasant that...)

Spent the day on Asterisk, first manning the TAUG booth at Linux world, then the TAUG meeting, and then the dinner afterward. Seneca got me all sorts of cool swag, include a Tux coin bank. I think I'll likely work at home tomorrow to save the commute time. Spent quite a bit of time talking ...

Too tired to continue (There may be better ways, but I don't see them yet...)

I've been working on a new project that integrates with Cinemon these past few work-days. The first day was pretty much taken up with factoring the common code out of Cinemon that I want to use with the new project. That's all the web-site and application setup stuff that's really pretty generic "I want an ...

I Have Looked

I have looked
It wasn't my intention
Her hands drew my attention
Tying up some knitted thing
Unleashing some dark knotted beast
I had thought locked deep within
Fascinated wordlessly
By the trivial in compare
With her mind and heart
Yet still I could barely push away
The unheard almost-thoughts
That crowded round behind my ...

Beauty on My Shoulder

Why do the words flow so smooth
On the nights the lady visits
Is it truly just that beauty
Sits upon my shoulder
Whispering sweet nothings
To keep my heart from breaking
Knowing she is not for me
Is it the vast gulf of safety
Knowing she is far beyond me
That lets me see ...

The Pointless Begging

Perfect ladies must grow weary
Of the endless pointless begging
For their number or their favour

So I would try not to bother
Yet my heart demands her presence
So I join the pointless crowding

Just another in the chorus
Who would be her solace source
