Work continues on EP Simulator:
I’m posting this on my new Ipod Touch. What a terrific little gadget! I really love it. -Gretchen
Very belatedly, I have decided to migrate my project EP Simulator from Trolltech’s gui framework Qt version 3 to version 4. I should have started with Qt4 in the first place, but all my books were Qt3 books (actually I own just 1 Qt book), and I had the mistaken notion that Qt4 wouldn’t work… Continue reading The Great Migration (from Qt3 to 4) Part I
In Part I, Sluggo, the aptly named Linux computer that is my workhorse, crashed and burned.Â I found myself updating from Suse 9.2 to 10.1.Â Now I could boot the computer, but a lot of stuff didn’t work.Â Among the problems, in no particular order: Software installation trouble 10.1 has two software installers: traditional Yast… Continue reading The Great Sluggo Crash of 2007 Part II

When everything is working well, we put off making… Continue reading The Great Sluggo Crash of 2007

I don’t have here a lot of info about how SVK came about and what not… Continue reading Version Control With SVK Part II

The new EP Studios project is a simulation of an EP recording system.Â The program is loosely based on the CardioLab system I have used for years.Â The program will be released under an open source license sometime (?) in 2007.
I just want to put a good word in for the version control program SVK. First a word of warning. This is definitely a programmer’s topic and if you have been reading for the political opinions or entertainment, or even for EP opinions, you should skip this topic. There, have all the non-programmers left? Ok.… Continue reading Version Control with SVK Part I
Ten years ago, when EP Office (known as EP Database back then) first emerged from the primordial binary soup to crawl across the computer screens at the University of Colorado, the only platform I considered using was Microsoft. The database used was Microsoft Access 2.0. Over the years various features were added to the program,… Continue reading Getting off the Microsoft carousel
