PolarLava 2008

Let's review the year of slow to no progress.  And it's unlikely to get much better so for 2009 I'm going to just continue to meet the goals I missed here.

In no particular order, here are PolarLava's goals for 2008:
  • Resume getting the backlog of all my writing online. PARTIAL, I did get more of them online, but there's a long way to go.
  • Explore/Move my PhotoBlog to a separate photblog specific platform.  FAIL, Did look into this a bit, but not too seriously.  More than anything now that I got a new camera I need to take more pictures!
  • Start commenting on my PhotoBlog entries so some of them are not quite as abstract.  SUCCESS, This I have done as it's relatively easy.
  • Add the ability to drill down and view monthly summary and individual rides from the Yearly Summary page of my Cycling Log.  FAIL, But I still want to do this at some point.
  • Add graphs to the Calendar and Yearly Summary pages of my Cycling Log.  PARTIAL, I did this everywhere except the yearly page.  And doing that shouldn't be to tough, but I just haven't gotten to it.
  • Add a route mapping feature to my Cycling Log.  This might be either adding an external link to a third-party mapping site or ideally some sort of mapping within my site.  FAIL, Would like to do this as an integrate feature, but likely to go third-party as that's the only way it will probably get done.
  • Write a DB class for PostgreSQL and integrate it into MyClient so you can connect to both MySQL and PostgreSQL databases at the same time.  FAIL, Another no progress thing I'd like to do, particularly for MyClient.
  • Start learning a little Ruby.  FAIL, Ditto.  I actually looked at buying a book about though a couple of months ago.
  • Complete project pages for my current and future projects. FAIL, Unlikely to get done and may get scaled back as I just can't support so much FOSS these days.  Bummer.
  • Actually release an update for Yapter.  FAIL, This might get killed as an independent project.  I'd like to keep it and I still use an updated but unreleased version.  Really needs a complete rewrite as I'd like to use it on other projects.  Then again, I've been thinking of moving to a framework for those.
  • Add a calendar entry view to PolarBlog.  FAIL, This actually is about 90% complete, but I just haven't tied up the loose ends.
SUMMARY:  The year of FAIL!
