Hello, CodeStore here. Jake's too busy to blog today. He foolishly got his boss over-excited about the potential of SVG and is now beavering away on a similar scale project with yesterday timescales.
While he's not looking I thought I'd tell you about my plans to not be out-done by the whole Notes.net -> LDD conversion. I think it's about time I had a fresh look too. Don't you!? Why don't you all tell Jake what you'd like to see. Many thanks to all of you who already have - I know that Jake listens.
Notes.net (spit!) are making their change this weekend. I will wait and see what tricks they have up their sleeve before I get Jake to perform the face-lift...
This reporting/charting database is suddenly becoming truly potential. Stu Lancaster mailed me today with more input - a much more slick way of doing this being to use XML and SVG. Which is precisely what a colleagure of his did after reading this article. His boss must be a happy man ;o)
If you haven't got the plugin already you can get it from Adobe's SVG site. Notice that you can view the source. Wow. Expect to see me talk more about this soon...
A few more thanks:
To Alex Hernandez for reminding me about Robocode. Anything that makes learning Java fun can't be bad can it. I've not tried it yet but I really should. My problem being that I can easily go and write Agents/Servlets in Java that work but don't really know things like why I can't cast that Long to an int (bad example, sorry). What I mean to say is that I feel I need to understand the language from the ground up. Then I can feel sure that the code I wrote is not going to be laughed at by the professionals...
Also to Anthony Thomas who has added his own twists to the idea that Warren suggested on the 16th of this month. He also found another article on the subject and sent me a demo DB. This really could become something special. If only there were 25 hours in a day.
And to Wolfgang Flamme for all his mail this week about the hole he has found in the way we all develop our "secure" databases. There's a thread growing on NotesTips.com and an article soon to appear here. Right now I'm not sure what to make of it all. All I would say is PLEASE STOP TRYING TO HACK THIS SITE. There's nothing here that you can't already see. All you do is waste bandwidth, which costs ME money.
