For those who follow my twitter feed, you may have noticed that I have been working on an Adobe AIR application at work. It is my first time developing an AIR app and for the most part has been a fun learning experience. However, this project has a very hard deadline on Wednesday and I still have a lot of code to write to finish. I will likely continue working long hours everyday until then. I just finished a thirteen hour day today. I should have no problems completing it. There’s no real obstacle left, just a lot of code I need to write up.
Work was relatively better today. Surprisingly, I did not have a lot of trouble with Internet Explorer while developing my website. Safari was the culprit today. I was getting events misfired at me constantly. If you’re not a programmer, don’t worry about it. It’s probably not that interesting to you. I did however get the portion of the website I wanted to finish today to 95% completion. I decided that was good enough and was able to leave work before midnight, unlike yesterday. I should be able to complete the site by tomorrow if I don’t get distracted. I was interrupted a few time today. We had major issues authoring a Blu-Ray disc that worked with the player we bought. We ended up having to go to Best Buy and purchasing a Blu-Ray/HD DVD combo player and authoring the video onto a HD DVD instead. I’m not sure if Blu-Ray was the format that should of won.
Another long, long, aggravating day at work today. Since I worked until 11:30pm last night, I decided to sleep in a little bit today to hopefully recuperate somewhat. All that rest did not do much. This whole weekend has been about fighting with Internet Explorer to work with my code. There were many times when I felt like I was going backwards. Today, I gave up at 1:30am and I hope I can just rock it tomorrow. Everything is so hard-coded right now, it’s not even funny. There needs to be a lot of work when we make the site dynamic for phase two. I may need to work late again tomorrow night.
