Things were really hectic at work yesterday and I had no time for a post at all and today’s not going to be any better but since I’ve done quite a bit of work on BOB and need to brag <g>, I thought I’d do a quick post :p Incidentally a friend (Steve) mentioned the fact that I mention my work here a lot but don’t really say what I do <vbg> I work for a communications reseller in Michigan as an application developer and am part of a team that handles one of their apps. I basically work with Oracle, Java and Vantive (a rapid-application development environment for corporate database applications …) mostly at work.

But to get back to what I was saying, I worked all through the evening yesterday on BOB and have the basic framework working fine. I have the GUI the way I want it, have the code for adding and removing files to and from the file list working and even have parts of the site list working too. To understand what the heck I’m talking about, here’s a screenshot of the main BOB window:

The biggest piece of work that remains to be done is management of favorite sites and a dialog to add favorite sites when you click on the Add button. Then I need to do some stuff to display progress messages on the log window at the bottom of the screen and I should be good to go 🙂

On another front, the influx of Gnomies has begun 🙂 I normally have about 60-80 hits during the course of the day on my site but today I’ve already have received about 30 hits and the day’s just beginning 🙂 I might not be able to do any posts from Blog since I don’t know how well Blog handles a heavy traffic site – might be my day to find out!
