Goldenseal Pro begins in earnest

We’ve signed with a US contractor who will work on the the Mac and Windows versions of Goldenseal Pro.  They will do the platform-specific coding, and we will be responsible for rewriting our core code as needed, so it fits well with the newer operating systems.

Most of our code is already well-crafted, but this is a chance to “tidy up” the parts that aren’t.  The ugly parts are mostly in the NeoAccess database, but some of our own code can be improved by using modern C++.  The language has improved enormously since we started using it.

As a break from programming work, on weekends I’ve been doing major rehab on the old farmhouse where TurtleSoft first began.  The old wiring was awful so I recently tore it all out, and have been redoing it correctly.  These days, when doing construction I keep a very tidy work space, and buy the right tools for every task. It makes everything safer and much less frustrating.

Maybe it’s an age thing, but it’s pleasant to cut the BS and just do things right.
