WebMon for Leopard

Category : Commentary/WebMonForLeopard.txt

Okay, I'm done with a version of WebMon for Leopard, as well.

It's been a long - sometimes discouraging - journey, getting all these applications to work again on Leopard because I often feel like I've been going over the same ground again and again. It has been so much work just to recover the same set of features.

But the ground has changed, underneath. There's much that we can now build on. I think I read somewhere Steve Jobs saying, this - Leopard - is the foundation for a decade of improvements and we will go on from here, polishing and improving the applications.

There's a lot I am looking forward to building, from here on.

With our son having begun his own journey through the (rather frightening) Singapore school system (my God, do we all think our kids are geniuses? I feel for the kids), a side-effect is that my wife and I getting more time to delve into our respective work. I love this work, so it's been a welcome change, and it's the kind of work where, beyond a certain stage, beyond a certain level of mastery, you feel like you can just do magic with your fingers, like a Druid. So, there's going to be more to come.

I'm now moving on to setting up the web pages for these new Leopard-ready versions. With any luck, I can get them done before the sun comes up again. Then I'll go to a shop and buy a retail copy of Leopard to test out. It's been a miscalculation, buying from the online store. So much for guaranteed delivery on the 26th.

I'm sustained by coffee and this amazing gamelan music by a (Japanese?) group called Jalan Jalan (Malay for going for a walk)- from the Bali and Bali Dua albums.
