Slow typing

It’s hard to get typing done with a bum hand.

Basketball and Hockey Playoffs

Phoenix Suns are tied with the Lakers, 1 game each. It’s now a best of 5. Steve Nash played well but the rest of the team looked a bit off. Also, it looks like Steve’s going to be the MVP again. It’s not official yet.

The Edmonton Oilers are looking pretty good right now. Jarrett Stoll‘s overtime winner was a result of a pretty good period by the Oilers. They still give up too many chances though.

Broken hand

Well, I finally suffered a real injury.

Playing slow pitch baseball, I managed to break my hand while diving for a ball. It’s not a big break but they had to put a cast on my left hand. This is what happens to “weekend warriors.”

Typing is going to be difficult for 4 to 6 weeks. Expect short email and blog posts.

Personal Update

To all those listening, did you get enough food at Easter dinner.

For some news on my latest work, here are a couple of my recent projects:

www.mbveneer.com – I’m the main builder of the back-end of this system. Check out the my projects area. Also, the “Cover my World” application uses Geoff Freedman‘s Flash work on top of my Flash Remoting/ColdFusion stuff. There’s some CMS stuff in there as well. Lots of fun.

www.fothergills.ca – This is a pretty straight forward e-commerce site. It’s Jodi’s design. The project is owned by Cricket Works.

www.rantdog.com – What a fun site. I’m the website’s architect. It’s a bit of a work in progress for now but it’s coming along. The website design is by Jodi again.

www.realmacaroni.com/wolverines – This is the website I built for our slow-pitch baseball team. I think it’s pretty cool. I built about 75% of it in an afternoon. I wonder if other teams out there would be interested in using this application. It’s ColdFusion for now but I’m thinking of porting it over to Django. If it’s useful enough, maybe I could sell it. Maybe to a league or to a sports association. I’ll think about it.
