N64's stuff. Mostly my emulator. It's a low level emulator, like MESS's implementation. Such fun. I am also working on a small library for the N64, which I hope to get somewhere with once I can actually do some testing against the real hardware.

Dynamics CRM 2011 customization. Not a lot of code, mostly new entities and workflows at this point. But overall it's been a really interesting project. Our core system of record isn't a traditional database (it's mainframe stuff), so it hasn't been super easy integrating things. We have an SOA built around message queues and COBOL programs on the mainframe, so you can imagine how fun it's been. Not in a sarcastic way, it's really been an interesting challenge. Hopefully we roll it out in two weeks.

Also, I get to go to Convergence next month, so that's pretty cool.

This was pretty much the last thing I thought I'd be working on when I got hired, but I'm not complaining. It's new and shiny and apparently an in-demand skill. I'll probably try to get certified in it later this year.

Crunches, cause I'm working on these sweet brogrammer abs of steel.

You almost convinced me that I should start doing crunches, but then I realized I'm not a brogrammer so I thought why bother and went and fixed me a drink.

(Some background: I work at the BBC in the department that looks after the Red Button services, see: http://en.wikipedia..../BBC_Red_Button )

Today I will be working on a ton of stuff, including setting up a chain of systems so I can develop a fix for a problem with the red button services on Freesat. This is nearly complete, so after this is setup, I will be debugging said problem on the TV on my desk.

Then I will be running a training session for a couple of developers who want to setup some systems for their long-term project of developing an alternate source of data for the red button services. Currently we get all the data from old ceefax systems, but they are set to be decommissioned at the end of the year, so we need an alternative source.

Then I will be getting trained for an hour by the senior developer on my team, which may well be held in the pub as he is fond of that!

In the background of this all, I have a bunch of stuff to get on with following the monthly review I had yesterday with my boss - writing wiki pages, creating change requests (documents for the ops teams which explain exactly how to deploy new developments), logging tasks in our JIRA task tracking system, and some other low priority tasks.

We are just expanding into Spain at work so I'm just putting the finishing touches on the game clients before release, I'm sure a test will show up some bugs I need to fix.

Also working on a game demo in C++ and OpenGL to keep my skills up :)

Also crunches suck. Planks and leg lifts are superior!

Today, I'm working on evaluating Test Observation Reports. I have to look at them, then look at code that I can't run and that I've never seen before and decide if they're valid. Then I have to see if an open issue exists against them, searching a poorly managed database for similar keywords. If not, I have to create an open issue.

Boring boring boring.

Bouncing between a vb.net ASP app that is used for member logins and working out the design for a "virtual museum" website powered by PHP. I also have to export some data from a tourism-related database at some point.

In about 6 hours I will be having a cold beer :) .

Adding 15 months of features to a Windows Mobile application to give feature parity between the desktop application and mobile application. And it's due this quarter.

Currently rewriting an entire website I made about two years ago and changing the entire mechanics from procedural php to OOP.

Not really a massive job, but I just found a page where I had three identical database connections .. :blink:

What WAS I doing that day?

Well, someone decided to roll out an internal beta. The script to create the accounts (not written by me) was not tested, resulting in EPIC ACCOUNT CREATION FAILURE. Spent a significant amount of time helping to handle the fallout, then all the issues -- relatively minor for the most part after that was sorted -- that rolled in.

This, on a day when a 4-hour unrelated con call was scheduled. And the day before the boss -- who wrote much of the meat of the app -- was scheduled for a long weekend.
