Energy To Spare

Stuffr.jpgProductivity was the word of the day. After waking up an hour and a half earlier than normal (thank you daylight savings time) I began my day in typical fashion. Email, news, and job search.

Not long after waking up, the phone rang. There was a recruiter on the other end asking if I was interested in getting an interview. Well, duh. She took some information from me and told me she would call be back in the afternoon, with an appointment time for tomorrow.

After submitting my resume for a couple more jobs, I I spent part of the morning cleaning up and organizing my computers. After the week I had last week, I needed to get everything back to “normal” while I am sitting at the keyboard.

Once things were organized, I finally cracked open Xcode. I’ve been planning a Mac version of Stuffr for several months, I just didn’t have the time. So today I finally found some time to open things up to start learning, again.

Before I got too far into code, I did a few things around the house. I moved one of our couches around the house and downstairs so its ready when we’re up to reupholstering it, caught up on laundry and watered our really tall pear trees. I figured if I got enough work done before I dove into the code pond, I wouldn’t feel guilty if I swam around for a little while.

I downloaded a couple tutorials and some guides, and within a few minutes I realized I am going to have a pretty good learning curve with this one, but there’s nothing I can’t do if I set my mind to it.

I think I’ve got the GUI interface part down pat, it’s just linking up the Xcode with what I have done with the Interface Builder. Like I said, there’s going to be a learning curve, so I hope no one expects the Mac version anytime soon. If you click the image you can see a very early screen shot of the application interface. If you’re a Windows user of Stuffr, you’ll see it looks remarkably familiar.

Now I am going to put the computer away so I can kick back and watch 24 and Heroes tonight. I have a ton of energy, but I want to get a good night’s sleep. Tomorrow’s a new day and if I’m as productive tomorrow as I was today, even with all this energy I should be exhausted by this time tomorrow. Ha!
