New projects

So, I’ve been insanely busy the last few weeks, and haven’t taken any time out of my busy schedule to write anything of interest here. I’ve been really busy with work and life, but I won’t bore you with the details of that…

I will however, take a few seconds to introduce a project I’ve decided to work on (as if I wasn’t busy enough already). As you know, I play WoW fairly regularly (World of Warcraft for those un-educated). There are many resources for the game, and a LOT of addons amongst various sites. Keeping your addons up-to-date unfortunately can be quite the chore, and so some wonderful people over at WoWAce (www.wowace.com), have written a small program to search through their site and find updated addons. Unfortunately, they wrote it in .Net, which obviously doesn’t help us Mac users out there. In comes the Java WoWUpdater: http://sourceforge.net/projects/javawowupdater a small project I’ve taken on, to port the WoWAce Updater to Java allowing it to be truly cross-platform.

I’ll keep you all posted on my progress, but for now there isn’t much to show or tell. If anyone’s interested in helping me out on this project, and knows anything about UI design or Swing, I’d be most appreciative of the help.

Well thats it for now, have fun everyone!
