Announcing BabyOp

A couple of weeks, I blogged about trying to create some babysitting coop software and “doing it right.” Despite knowing that I’d benefit from the discipline imposed by Python, I ended up coding it in perl and staying in my comfort zone. Still, it’s a lot less screwy than past things I’ve done.

It’s definitely not ready for prime time—barely tested at all; probably buggy; not feature complete; and not nearly secure enough. But I thought I’d announce it so it can start entering search engine indices. The past blog entry is already a #2 google result for babysitting coop software. (Apparently there is very little competition in this niche).

So. Announcing BabyOp: Software for Babysitting Coops.

Happy Belated Chanukah 5766

So I’m a little late, but Happy Belated Chanukah 5766. Among other gifts (to ourselves), we got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30, about which more later. In the meantime, I’d like to do more photoblogging, and toward that end, I declare all content here to be licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.5 License. I’m certainly open to granting less restrictive licenses, I’d just like to be asked first.

Oh, right, and no more sweets for the month of January. I’ve had enough.
