Where have I been?

It's been a busy time lately. At work I've been consumed with updating RAD 7. It seems that JSF applications did not work correctly after the upgrade from RAD6 to RAD7. All I have to do is install these few fix packs. Unfortunately, they didn't install correctly and I had to re-install RAD. That has taken 4 days of installing, without being able to work on the code that's most important to this project.

I've also been busy making changes to the Custom IE toolbar. This is a fun task that lets me use C#.Net to make things happen. I have to integrate with some COM components and with the web page that is being viewed. The code is fun and challenging. Since it's not solving the same problem as normal there has been a lot more outside the box type of thinking that I have had to do. I started with the code from "Extending Explorer with Band Objects using .NET and Windows Forms" at Code Project.

My home life has been busy and keeping me from playing online as much as I'd like. I've made July a month of exercise that I have really enjoyed. I'll be switching it up in August to focus more on tech endeavors. It's time for me to start taking my practice tests and earn my Java Certification.
