GSoC 2009 is over.
Got SVN running (stupid thing I know), so know have committed my work to the AptitudeCMS Repo. Still some mintor bits to work out, but the XML/ATOM output via Zend Feed is working, adding and editing items work,Â haven’tÂ quite figured out item deletion yet.
Not sure how much time one will have during term time to remain involved but we shall see.
Not tho I have picked up a Job at Stage One, the PCI department of Leeds University.
Spent most of the day hacking the Congo, the Stage1 Lighting Desk, to work with the new network nodes. Rather good fun!
Anyway Freshers week is coming, which means lots of shifts at work, which will be fun but busy, we shall see.
Hopefully I will remember to write my blog some more too!
Crikey its Mid Term in GSoC.
Such fun, apart from being massibly behind but have made a hell of a lot of progress recently.
In other news Bungie Day 2009 was good fun, they ran a 35 map playlist, Bungie vs. The World, all the maps being created by the community.
Anywho not mych else coming up soon, but back to work now.
So its week whatever it is of GSoC (Google Summer of Code), I’ve lost count, is been tooo busy.
And getting there with AptitudeCMS, not I have my head round it and I have some working code, since its XML Related I was going to use my xml2array function I have that I usually use, but it was suggessted I use Zend Feed to do it and its quite a lot nicer, it does in and out it one easy block of code, in and out I mean for importing a feed out being creating and caching a feed.
On a side note, I have finished some client work (again), hopefully no more damn changes to make on it, and 360gaming.net is coming along with its Windows Live Authentication.
Anywho back to work. 🙂
There I was, all packed up and ready to go to Silverstone, to help a friend run a tent.
Phone them up, rang, and rang, to voicemail, left a voicemail.
Phoned the following day, same, and then phoned on Friday, still no answer.
So I didn’t go to Silverstone in the end, nice of a friend to actually say your not going, except they didn’t.
Let alone, the fact I told a known BBC Sports Reporter I was going, and they were going to come say hello, now I look like an Idiot.
In the end I got quite a lot done on 360gaming [dot] net, it now has working profiles and Windows Live Authentication, but now I must get back to my GSoC Project, I’m finally getting my head round the file structure for plugins, and will be teaching my new boss how to program a Pearl 2004 soon too.
Also I discovered I like Whiskey.
This week has been Busy and its Only Tuesday!
So Xbox Live is currently down, which has borked a shed load of sites related, for example all gamertag data, and my output over at H3Wheelmen is stuck saying X is online in Y, even tho Xbox Live is down.
Its rumoured they are doing some of the Xbox Updates needed for Facebook/Last.fm/Twitter support, and of course the up coming Sky TV for the UK.
We shall see.
In other news The Big Surf Island is now out for download on Xbox Live for Burnout Paradise, will be playing that later.
Its living dead in this Weekends Double XP for Halo3.
The new scripts for 360gaming [dot] net are coming along.
And Finally in Week 4 of Google Summer of Code 2009, I have started my Project, well got PHP5.3RC3 installed and running, as Aptitude CMS needs Namespace Support. Apparently PHP5.3 is going stable in a couple of weeks so I am told.
However Life has been strange this week, I’ve had some odd dreams before waking up, which have been really off putting, but the nature of the dreams means I should keep it quiet.
Anywho I am off to Silverstone this weekend, to help a friend run one of the VIP tents for the British Grand Prix, so it should be good fun
Time to get back to work, so catch you on the flip side
