New Adventures in ObjectLand...













The marathon to completing ComputeSpace is getting more interesting.  Last night we agreed on what to show as a proof-of-principle demonstration and the deadline for that is the end of December.


So I'll be pretty deeply immersed in ObjectLand for 3 days a week through the end of the year.  ComputeSpace is 100% object-oriented.  Pure Java code and an object-oriented database.

I'm gonna be busy creating well-behaved planetary objects for a while.


One more thing...

It's a strange world at work at out there...

One the one hand, I don't much want to dwell on either the current value of my house or the stocks in my 401K.  I probably would not have a smiley face on.

Then again, today a company (which shall remain nameless) attempted to recruit me to come on board as a programmer.  They offered $147,000 to start and 3 CATERED MEALS DELIVERED TO MY DESK DAILY!  Now of course we don't do what we do just for money (do we?) . More frightening is the implication that I'd be AT MY DESK morning, noon, and night to get those meals!

Not going for the job and not very excited about doing even more coding at this stage of my life.  In my next career move I'm planning on becoming either a time traveller or a Blade Runner...
