Amateur Hour

Due to the incompetence of A2Hosting “trained monkeys”, which let a ransomware fuck their entire windows infrastructure, including DB servers, and have been unable to restore their systems, this site and all its subdomains remained offline from 22 April to 4 May, when I decided to ditch those amateurs and moved all my stuff (I have backups, unlike them) on a new hosting.


Hosting change…

Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to this new WordPress hosting… :)

This post is only to distinguish the two sites, that share the same domain… :)

Making the Makibox

…the nice toy is growing, slowly… :)

Another round, another prize… (Xcode, Objective C, e iPhone/iPad app)

Contrary to what I would have thought, the biggest problem was not learning the crazy syntax of ObjectiveC, or the mandatory MVC paradigm, or XCode IDE (that makes me regret Visual Studio, and I hate to give kudos to Microsoft), but to understand how the procedures for app signing works so you can test it on devices that are not directly connected to the development machine!

Anyway … I won :)

And this, done as a sort of  “hello world” to try to understand how the fracking process worked, is the iPhone port of my TNGClient for Android (and with a really nice calendar… oddly enough, compared to my horrible graphic standards … :))

Yeah, I can add a couple of lines to the CV … :)

First month of the new site…

…well… not bad for a site that has not been updated in more than 6 years… :)


I’ll probably use the firs japanese visitor as an excuse to start learning japanese… ;)
