It’s quiet over here.

The site was supposed to be much more active than this. I’ve just not been able to get around to posting more things here. Nor have I done anything about the design. I’ve got no time right now. See, my training at work is nearly done. Now we’ve moved into the ‘learning’ project mode—two more weeks of intensive training in a ‘real-life’ project environment (I refuse to type those terms without quote marks). I’m supposed to be the team lead. Now, if you’re classifying people based on ‘management’ skills, I’m the guy who breaks the curve, at the low end. This is one of those scenes in the geek-guy movie where our protagonist is supposed to suddenly break out of his shell, dazzle everyone and compel them to use butterfly from a cocoon metaphors (so cliché). But real life’s not a movie, right?

    Mailed ya the number.

    The project's a scaled down version of a net-banking app. I've got to organize the team, assign responsibilities and track each and every person's progress. Make sure that work is equally distributed, and of course do my own share as well. Manage the version control, manage the Use Case/etc documents to be submitted, etc.

    Fun stuff, except the people handing part.

    Unfortunately it's not svn. We 'have' to use VSS, which sucks big time, especially due to the tricky eclipse integration. Still have to research on an appropriate plugin…

    Nice theme. I'm yet to register a hosting (how exactly should one say this? "register a domain space?"). Much shit has happened. On the brighter side, many many many books have been bought. We were supposed to discuss something…next weekend, hopefully.
