Journal Journal: My own open source project, iShudan

I decided to try and roll my own Open Source project to scratch a newly acquired itch: a web interface for playing and recording Go* games on the iPhone and other "mobile" handsets. I picked a goofy name that looked available, made a google code project out of it, and announced it on my blog. I have some working code, a license, a wiki, and a subversion repository.

Tonight, my friend Adam and I are going to work on things a bit more. I downloaded a trial version of some JAVA centered IDE called IntelliJ IDEA, even though my code's just PHP. Perhaps I will qualify for the open source license for their software if I make a mailing list for the project as well...

Journal Journal: David's Go Dojo

I have started a blog at the following location, David's Go Dojo. It is for matters pertaining to Go, an ancient Chinese board game that has existed for many thousands of years, and is the longest continuously played game of all time, ever. It is currently believed that computers will never be a significant challenge to a determined and moderately ranked Amateur player on the full 19x19 board in our near future, our lifetime, or possibly ever! My personal web site is slanted towards people interested in the game who don't necessarily know how to play or know only very little about the game, and it includes photograph albums via Gallery, a PHP-based go multiplayer engine, and an iPhone optimized interface when detected as necessary. Please feel free to stop by and take a look and offer any comments or questions...
