I got myself and iPod touch recently and it is really good. Recently
I've started looking into writingspplications for it. I've had some
expirence (and success) writing apps for a Windows mobile device, but
these iPod touch/iphones use objective-c which is very different from
C#. And while it would be interesting to learn and have a go at
writing an app I just don't have the time and engery these days.

Oracle 7 and 9

Finally finished dealing with Oracle 7.3.4, for now. Gee it's a pain to
use. It's been both an interesting learning experience and a nightmare
to try and setup the few databases for development.

Now I'm onto setting up a few 9i databases for testing. The most
interesting part was trying to get the listener on the server to listen
for both the version 7 and version 9 database. I eventually realised
that I just have to stop the v7 listener, configure the 9i listener,
then only start the 9i listener.

Now I just have to configure the accounts, copy the data, blah, blah,
blah. Time consuming, but not difficult.

Being a dad

It's hard work being a dad sometimes. Being the one who has to be
tough and enforce the rules and sometimes make you little girl cry. I
know it's for the best, but it's still tough.
