White rose


Here’s yet another rose from the City of Hope rose garden – this time a white one.  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken this afternoon during our walk, and part of my famous Garden series.

Very busy weekend.  LRN4 went into the hospital on Saturday afternoon.  They started chemo at about 9:00 that evening, gave her the second infusion at the same time on Sunday, and then the third at about 4:00 today.  Her hospital room was in the old building, but it was reasonably comfortable.  She had to share the shower with her next-door neighbor and the bathrooms in that building are nearly impossible to navigate when you’re attached to an IV pole, but everything was otherwise okay there.  It took two hours to get dinner on Saturday, but the food service was otherwise okay too.  Oh, they also forgot to bring her a cookie when she wanted one.  That’s a serious omission!

Little progress on the programming front.  I was distracted.  But I must keep working.  I did get version 0.1 of the iOS app done this afternoon with the exception of a small bug in portrait mode.  I’ll get that fixed tomorrow and get LRN31 hooked up with a beta copy to check out the general layout and functionality and to see if she can drive out any bugs.  Then there’s the artwork and icons (maybe I should at least put some kind of icon on it for tomorrow – shouldn’t be too hard), reports, printing, supporting evidence, and probably some other stuff.  So there’s still plenty left to do.

I also need to update my account with the Apple people.  Their developer portal was taken offline because of a system intrusion, so it hasn’t necessarily been possible to do the kind of update I need to do.  But I think they’re probably able to hand it now.  So I need to get on the phone with them tomorrow and get that done too.  There’s still lots left to do, but I’m making progress!  My new goal is to get it released before Labor Day.  I’m guaranteed to make my deadline, just as long as I’m willing to push the deadline out every time I miss one.

And I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: family pop tart theft!

See you tomorrow.

    Hey – the pop tart theft thing doesn’t have a link! (or at least I can’t figure it out)

    Thanks for fixing it! Who knew that I should have had my kids arrested for sneaking/stealing food!

    That must be quite a rose garden!

    It’s pretty impressive. Not quite like Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania, but this is a hospital, after all.

    I have to get serious about artwork for your app!
