  • May 21 – One mountain's peak is another's base.

    Yesterday It’s been a weird few days, my exhiliration at releasing ServiceChat is tempered by a realisation that the mountains left to climb are even higher than that of getting software built (which is really just a molehill!) Oh young whippersnapper founder, hear me well – software is the easy bit.  Finding customers and trying […]

  • May 17 – Been Focused on Making Art

    The last three days No, I haven’t been abducted by aliens. I apologise for not posting to this blog over the last 3 days. It’s been a tough few days, spent mostly making art and exercising my passions. Glad I had invested 3 solid days in pushing to close off the outstanding tasks to get […]

  • May 14 – All Set!

    Yesterday What a day!  So many little things that combine to be pretty big.  But a very fulfilling day, tiring, but fulfilling. Glad I had a balanced day – language practice (i discovered duolingo and it is amazing. Still using Rosetta Stone as well.) Glad  the site is ready to go and I decided to […]

  • May 13 – Shipping is HARD!

    Yesterday Sunday, May 12th:  I struggled to get started.  I do want to work on Sundays, but my family and I are still clinging to conventional working week delusions and I find it difficult to get to my desk, let alone have the discipline to follow my routine. Nevertheless I did find some time and […]

  • May 10 – My Keel Is Evening Out

    Yesterday Really challenging day, huge range of emotions but perhaps necessary.  Mostly I am: Glad my routine is settling down and more that I am really enjoying it. Glad I got feedback from my friend and ServiceChat early adopter on my landing page. It was awesome feedback and the mods really enhanced it. Sad that […]

  • May 9 – Too Far Down The Road Less Travelled

    Yesterday What an intense day – but pleasantly so.  Mostly I am: Glad I successfully executed my new routine. I had a 17 hour fast, did 1.5 hours of language study (and it was huge fun) and 8 hours of work on the startup and over an hour of wellness throughout the day – YAY! […]

  • May 7 (and 8th) – Plan : Replan, Replay

      A Note on Yesterday In lieu of a retro for yesterday (May 6th), which I did not write because it was late, I was tired and intended to do it this morning but unexpectedly had to make an airport run. That is my story and I shall be sticking with it. The app is […]

  • May 3 – Retro: Traction.

    Check In I’m sad I didn’t write my plan on friday (May 3rd and a retro for that day). Slow progress meant not much had changed at the level I was tracking on my board. I’m glad that on Sunday , May 5th I worked deeply and intelligently and achieved a huge amount. Glad that […]

  • May 2 – Retro: Ongoing…

    Check In I’m glad I’m making progress, it’s slow and with plenty of emergence, but it’s progress. Glad that I’m learning and having fun doing this. Mad that every 10 steps forward I discover 100 more miles to go! Glad that I will have the approved chat hosts functionality in place, it’s so close I […]

  • May 2 – Plan: Stitch 'er up, I'm done!

    Today Yesterday was surgery, I took the codebase around the chat room requesting apart and cut out a lot of crappy code.  In the last week I have replaced lots of old tech and upgraded many of the gems that are the foundation of ServiceChat (especially mongoid, Rails and Tweetstream) and refactored all the supporting apps (Tron […]
