Things I'm Working On Next

Category : Technology/NextStuffToDo.txt

A couple of things I'm working on next. 

One, I know that MailServe and DNS Enabler will work on Mountain Lion Server. But not, at the moment, WebMon. So I'm going to see why WebMon for Mountain Lion won't work on Mountain Lion Server.

Two. I worked on a version of DNS Enabler once, that implements split views. But that didn't work out because I couldn't quite figure out how to design the user interface. I'm going to pick that project up again and make another attempt.

Maybe, one more thing. For years, while watching my kid grow up, I worked from my own home. I worked in semi-retirement and turned away more jobs than I can remember.

But one thing I really liked doing, was to teach Mac OS X programming. But I didn't have the space to do it—it would have been inconvenient to have people traipsing through my bedroom-converted-to-workroom. 

But now I do have a proper working space—at a shop that I own, that I used to rent out. When the previous tenancy ran out, I decided to keep half the shop space for my own use, and rent the other half to a cafe. I actually like working out of Starbucks. So now, I sort of have my own personal Starbucks space. Sort of. But the thing is, for the first time in years, I have a space I can do Mac/iOS programming courses from and I'm figuring out how to get this thing started.



So, if you interested to learn how to do the things we do, just contact me and let me know what you would like to learn. Check out this page,, which includes a link to my Facebook page (my weblog doesn't have comments—it's home-made, so I'll use Facebook to talk back to anybody who wants to leave comments). Thanks.
