  • 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 6 – Plan: Prepare to Board

    Today I went rogue on Friday(3rd) and Sunday (5th). There was a plan but it wasn’t visible, so I apologise to my #happytohelpers. The codebase is looking sweet and I have gotten a huge amount done in such a short time. I think I have enough to show early customers and get feedback for the […]

  • 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 […]

  • May 1 – Retro : Pulled a Train

    Check In I’m sad I got mad with Katharine, it was a silly trivial thing that didn’t need to happen. Glad that we talked about it and made good. Glad that the surge of effort (I worked pretty late) to crack the twitter request functions of ServiceChat was successful Glad I decided to use sferik’s […]

  • May 1 – Plan : Full of Promise.

    Today The main push today is to get ServiceChat hosts being able to request from Twitter. This is currently the biggest differentiator from other products out there.  It is the simplest, fastest and most unobtrusive mechanism I have seen.   it just works (well at least it did in ChittyChat!). I’m going to start by […]
