Out Of Hiding

Hey all,
I thought I should probably check in and let you all know that I’m still alive and all that. I’ve been REALLY busy on another project (as well as with work, but we don’t count that) that is enabling me to do something that I’ve wanted to do for some time and unfortunately due to needing some sleep occasionally (though probably more occasionally than I actually allow myself lately) DD has taken something of a back seat.

There’s also been a lot of stuff going on in my personal life that has meant DD hasn’t really been my ‘flavour of the month’. I won’t be going in to too much details about all that, those that have a need to know will already know what I to what I am referring!

Anyway, Friday was a day for some decisions that seemed, at least at the moment as though they’ll be very positive for DD’s future. It’s still quite a volatile time in my personal life and things could change in the blink of an eyelid, but at least at the moment things are looking like I might get some enthusiasm to spend some time on DD again.

The time away has enabled me to look at some other systems in quite some depth and realise a number of things that DD is really lacking these days, and to realise how ‘1990s’ some of the ancilliary stuff (Hamipiks, HamiMail etc) really is. It’s also made me look at the Plus accounts a bit deeper and there will be some changes coming up, some features and things will have to go ‘Plus only’ but none of that is finalized and some of it not even discussed yet, so I shan’t say any more than that. Don’t worry though, reading and writing diaries will still be available to non Plus users :-)

So yeah, so yeah. And stuff. And that…

There’s a lot going on and I haven’t forgotten you all! Please bear with me a bit while I get through some ‘interesting’ times and try to get back into DD development hopefully soon.

Steve.

Notifies?
