Due to personal circumstances, it is going to be a slow blogging week for me as I've not been taking transit to work the past week and this trend will continue for another week or so. The one thing I do have to say is that it is pretty amazing to realize how much I miss those train rides to and from work. For me, that time is my personal down time where I get to use it to catch on things that interests me like reading my rss feeds and blogging. While I haven't had time to read, it doesn't mean that the week hasn't been eventful. Here are some of the very brief highlights for me.
We've actually been working on the iPhone application for a few months now and the code was actually ready probably in late November or so. What we had trouble with was getting approval for an account to publish under. Once we had that, we were good to go. The first iteration of the application is a simplified version of our web application and we have a tonne of ideas that we want to put on over time. For those of you who read this in Canada, please feel free to check out our application in the iPhone App Store.
I'll officially become an official employee of Zoocasa on Monday. For me personally, there are a lot of good things that are implied with this change for me and Zoocasa in general. Zoocasa is now no longer just an "idea" of Rogers but rather confirmation and commitment to the success of the project itself. It's full steam ahead now for us here.
From a tech perspective, I played with the VMWare VCenter Converter tool. It proved to be a really nifty tool to convert physical machines to virtual machines. Most useful for Windows environments. I decided to convert one of my "dying" machines to convert. It took well over 5 hours to convert but when I turned it on in VMWare Server 2, it worked with minor tweaks to the system.
