Well it's been over a month since my last post so I thought I'd better just put up a quick note to say that I am still here and that I haven't forgotten the blog. Unfortunately lately my better half decided that maybe we should spend some time doing the gardening so instead of investigating version control systems, playing with Mono and Python and attempting to master (or at least comprehend) C++ I've been having my arms gauged open by plants which have decided that they're not going without a fight!
I have had a brief amount of time to have a look at Bazaar and will hopefully be able to put something up about that soon, it's looking good so far and is making me wonder why we're still using cvs at work. I've also had a quick look at developing apps for the Android mobile platform seeing as I now have an Android phone, I stopped when it looked like I was going to have to invest some time with Java as I didn't want to get carried away with another language, however since then I've discovered something called ASE, the Android Scripting Environment which looks as though it allows you to write apps for Android in Python - something which is of real interest to me - so I may have to spend some time looking into that.
Anyway, keep watching for more posts shortly (honest)
