    I'm so busy lately. Started a new project for the summer time: it is a little program for my dad's company. It is keeping me busy! And I'm going to swim when I have some free time

    What are you doing this summer? Working, holiday, swimming pool, ...?

    Btw: Are there any competitions this summer?

    This summer?  New baby arriving any day now.  There will be no time for much else except family.
    Hopefully a few moments of peace and quiet in the sun now and then. Smiley

    I hope to graduate my masters in the fall, so yeah I'm keeping quite busy this summer. No vacation time for me. Sad

    Finishing a book, two huge projects at work, and trying to avoid a room with padded walls.  No rest for me this summer.

    I would like to start a semi-large project involving robotics and some simple ai programming - although that may not happen Smiley

    Other than that, I'll be working everyday, and keeping the wife happy (which requires more resources than I am able to supply!)

    Having just graduated I should be looking for a job, hmmmm.

    I'm finishing off a web app now, and trying to remember VB (well upgrade from vb6 to .net) so I can start making standalone apps, was also planning on learning java.

    Other than that I'm trying to think of an app to make, the few ideas I have are useful to me but I'm trying to think of something really exciting.

    How much of this I'll manage is anyone's guess.

    I would love to develop an really exciting/useful application...I just cannot think up any Smiley And when I log onto the net, and see some new exciting/useful application that somebody made recently, I think to myself "Why didn't I think of that first?"

    This whole programmer-lifestyle is depressing Smiley

    Not a forum bashing book I hope! lol

    I would like to go back to school this fall, at an area university, but I don't think I'll be able to afford it right now. I guess I work on some projects on the side instead, and see if I can get my employer to pay for a couple of courses.

    I am just doing some stuff in my school's marching band, a lot of coding, and an occasional swim in my pool.

    Well this holiday will be spent mainly on the computer, maybe doing some coding, almost certainly posting on/reading Channel 9. I am going on holiday, and doing a sailing course, I did one last summer and it was excellent so I decided to go back again. I think I will mainly be relaxing though as school has been tougher since we started working towards our GCSE examinations.

    I'm getting very familiar with the Smart Client Software Factory.

    It's the future & present of Winforms, imho.  Big Smile

    Kids are at camp(s), I'm using my Weber grill a lot, and I will play a round of golf when I can find time.

    Hmmm ... working like a maniac these days. Full time job just easing down right now so I can focus more on the freelance stuff.

    Then jetting off to Spain for a week in the sun, then off to Iceland for two weeks in the rain. Then back to Stockholm to the real world.

    My problem I have too many things I would like to to for myself, but I don't have the time ... damn those paying customers Perplexed

    ROFL - No, an actual book with a real publisher.  Professional VMware from WROX.  It's on how to leverage VMware Server in your development environment.  Pushing builds to test machines with CruiseControl.Net and VSTS.  Work'n the APIs, etc.  Fun stuff. Smiley
