Programming and Life plans.

First a huge announcement: I will not release anything tomorrow. For the first time in 6 weeks, no friday release from me!

Now, let's see what I'm planning.

  1. I will be at LatinoWare 2008 speaking about PyQt. The usual free beer offer: if you mention this blog, I will buy you 1 (one) not very good beer. Being in Brazil, that's probably a Brahma.

  2. rst2pdf development is slowing down. The easy stuff is all done. There are some things I can do, though:

    • Expose transitions to the writer (good for presentations)
    • "Background" forms (again, for presentations)
    • A mini-language exposing the canvas, so there is a useful "raw" mode.
    • Using svglib instead of uniconvertor to handle SVG (but keep uniconvertor for other vector formats)
    • Redoing lists, which have a shaky code and bad layout
    • Fix half a dozen bugs
    • Make it work more like a unix app when in unix (respect environment vars, for example)

    However, I am taking a little time off from it, and going to try reviving other projects. Focusing in rst2pdf for two months did wonders for it. Let's see if it can be repeated!

  3. Try some more code golfing. I helped Nubis from PyAr reach the lowest-score of 74 in the grid challenge. This is really fun stuff.

  4. I need more money. We have spent lots in ... plumbing. Yup. Two years of savings spent on that. So, I need money. If you read this blog and want to make me happy, get me freelance work. It can be sysadmin stuff, it can be programming, it can be babysitting. I am good at all three things. Contact me. I'm easy to find, and I am cheap(ish).

  5. No, I am not starving. No, I am not in money problems. Yes, my company is doing very well, but it's an investment, not a cash cow (yet).
