Nothing new to report. Still working with Pathfinder Associates on two projects. We’ve delivered our first round of work on both projects and now, it’s all integration and feature fixes.

Just wrapping up an additional project at my client site. We’ll start maintenance on it next week as well as start a new Portal project. I’m plugging along with this contract. There has been no talk of a roll-off date and I have discussed the possibility of hiring on. My client just needs a long-term committment of work from their client and I might have a job. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

The latest project involved me creating JavaScript hooks into a browser-based application to accept input from a barcode reader. I developed quite a few really interesting pieces of code and will be sharing them online once I get a chance to write them up and remove my client specific information from it.

The drawback to this project was that we spent this whole week working til midnight every night to meet unreasonable deadlines. And, the positive side of that is I’ve been billing hourly at a great rate so, not too many complaints. Of course, the friend I go out with tonight might be mad at me if I run out of juice early in the evening…LOL (I’ll get a second wind…).

Ciao friends,
