What has been going on?

It has been a while since I have posted here or updated my status, there are a number of reasons for it. School has been taking an incredible amount of time and now I find out that my family and I are moving to a new station this week so I have had to make some changes to my priorities. I wanted to wait to I had discussed with my fellow crew members before announcing that I'm putting my Windows development to the side for a while to focus on the premier platform, Mac OS X. I will be learning to code, design and deploy mac applications that are focused on design and usability, something which all too often gets pushed away. My major project on at the moment is code-named 'Fern' and will be a Leopard desktop blog editor, so keep stay tuned here to keep track of it.

I'm trying my best to keep projects going alongside school and my work with Computer Sciences Corporation, this recent move to a new station also throws a spanner in the works. I have copped a lot of flack for leaving windows but with Mac being my main platform, and being a much more enjoyable experience, it was all too obvious what I have to do as I just don't have the time. Some recent advice from a friend "You only get one chance at life, you should live it the way you truly want to", which got me thinking about my current situation, and is the main reason for my changes. But frankly I don't have to answer to anyone yet, I might as well make the most of it by doing what I want and enjoying it. I will definitely be returning to windows development at the end of the year when I start my courses at TAFE.

Stay tuned as I start my journey of mac development and the life lessons along the way. Thank you.
