Didn’t do much in the way of work yesterday at all – I helped a new Blog user setup the PHP comments system that I use as well and then played a lot of “Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance” and watched a movie. I keep on chipping away at this new project I’ve conceived in my mind but nothing concrete has come out of it yet and so I will not write about it – why write about something that will not see the light of day at all? But then again, there have been so many other projects of mine which haven’t seen the light of day – Bandit and WebPrint to name just two. The difference is that those two apps are at least in working order and really do what they should do – I just haven’t bothered to release them. Whereas this new project is just an idea I’m toying with but if it does come to be, then another un-released project – Quester – will tie into it as a plug-in. If it were to come to be, this would actually work out pretty well since I’ve had a lot of people ask me for a separate search functionality in Scope and I really don’t think that would fit in there but providing Quester as an external app which can not only do searches for almost any site you can think of but can also provide the functionality for you to extend what engines you search and how you search them. That alone seems like enough justification for the project but before I get ahead of myself <g> I need to get it working first … So we’ll see …
