Evening beach

Here’s the beach at Santa Cruz around sunset.  That was a long but enjoyable day.  I think I may have mentioned that my favorite part was the four hours LRN2 and I spent together waiting for the rest of the people to come.  The low point – cleaning up the Dutch ovens afterwards.  Never again.  Check out that old concrete ship at the end of the pier.  World War I relic.  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam.

Short shrift tonight.  I want to work on a bit of iPhone programming before I go to bed in about an hour.

Lots to do at work.  It’s kind of hard to stay productive right now – I suspect it’s because many of the things I need to do are things I don’t exactly want to do.  Must . . . put . . . shoulder . . . to . . . the . . . wheel.

Plenty to do at home too, but the schedule isn’t quite as tough.  LRN4 spent a good portion of the day cleaning out her hobby shelf in the garage.  Most of the stuff is in the trash can now, but she found some pretty good things there that she’s hanging on to.  Maybe she’ll be able to find a little time to work on hobbies after the house isn’t so full of time-consuming junk.  We can only hope.

Otherwise, not much.  Oh – our iPhone app came out today!  I have no idea how many downloads there have been, but we’ve had about five people already that can’t get it to download their data.  Sigh.  I suspect the database people may have chosen today to make another change, which would be unfortunate, but my contact at the church can easily get that fixed.  Or it’s something else we’ll get figured out.  My iPhone- or iPod-Touch- or iPad-owning Loyal Readers are invited to go to the Apple App Store and search for LDS Tools.  Let me know what you think.  Even bug reports are welcome.

Been watching the videos from iTunes U of the Stanford iPhone Development class.  It’s very well done, with good, clear lectures and quite good production values.  Highly recommended for budding iPhone developers such as myself.  I’m also working through the Big Nerd Ranch‘s iPhone Programming book.  Also highly recommended.  Between the two, maybe I’ll be able to figure this thing out.  I think I’m making progress.

So today was my all-iPhone blog.  Some days are just like that.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: let’s just say I’ve had this problem before too.

See you tomorrow.

    A classic toilet joke.

    Fun fact for other Loyal Readers: The SS Palo Alto’s sister ship is still technically afloat.
