Our staff has made some progress on Goldenseal Pro: text fields now fill in values, and popup fields get menus. QT is still working well, and I’m very optimistic that we’ll be successful with it.
However, our staff has mostly been busy with other things, the past couple weeks. The rest of October will be similar, before we get back on track.
First of all, TurtleSoft is moving to a less Covid-risky office. At the moment everything is boxes and disassembled shelving. The chaos will get worse before it gets better.
I also finished re-roofing my house last week. It was a big project that started in late May: removing 3 layers of ancient asphalt shingle from a 12:12 pitch, then installing new metal panels. I also added a couple of skylights in the attic. There’s still a small shed roof to finish on the rear, but that should only take a few days. It’s the first roofing project I’ve done with scaffolding rather than ladders, and the process was so much safer and more pleasant. Well worth the extra setup and take-down time.
Getting back into major construction work was satisfying. 20 to 25 hours a week of physical work seems like the sweet spot: enough to get very fit, but not enough for serious back and joint pains. So, I’m planning to finish some interior work over the next few months, then sell the place and buy another fixer-upper. Then repeat the process every five years or so.
For most of its lifetime, TurtleSoft has been a part-time operation. This really isn’t a change from how it’s always been here. Sometimes there are spurts, and sometimes gaps. Goldenseal Pro will be spurting again soon enough.
