Well this week has been jammed packed with things to do! I am so excited and happy I have got a great family, and a bunch of wonderful friends who are helping me to get ready for this trip (thanks to those who let me borrow stuff for the trip!). Everyone is sending me off like I am never going to come back! (I will come back, I promise!) I’ll miss being away from Boston, despite the fact that I don’t like Boston much.
On the fellowship front: I have contacted a few vendors and sent more emails out to everyone. I have to get the laptop ready with all the documents this weekend, so that everything is ready when I need it (hopefully my documents from my PC will look right on a mac). I found out that the Apple laptop AC adapters work for 100~240v!!! Can you believe that? I thought I’d need a voltage converter – but Apple designers already took care of that! Way to go, Apple!
Besides getting ready, I am working on a second document (in addition to “How to Make a Web Site at an Internet Cafe”), and this one is to summarize some basic marketing and business tips! I’ll have to post it soon. I revised the ebooklet this week, and took 1/2 the content and made it into a caffeinated version of “How to Make a Web Site at an Internet Cafe.” That will be posted soon as well. So much writing and documenting!
I can’t help but post a short blurb about something I have been working on with my thesis project. I am trying to add the functionality where charts and graphs can be dynamically generated based on user input. I am using CakePHP, and found this really neat tutorial by Chris Hartjes that shows you how to integrate PHP/SWF Charts library to a CakePHP application! It took an afternoon to get it working, ‘cos I was stupid and forgot an important line of code. But it works now!
It’s time to get back to work
