Realestate Manager 2.0

Posted on : 14-06-2009 | By : Chuck | In : Programming


The past few days I have been working on version 2.0 of our Realestate Manager software. It is a complete re-write from previous versions and is based off of the same code-base as Automotive Manager 1.0.

By having both Realestate Manager and Automotive Manager based off of the same code, it will be much easier to release updates for both pieces of software. This doesn’t mean that they are two versions of the same software, but they do share a rather large amount of code.

Since they are based off of the same code, most updates to one piece of software could easily be applied to the other. For example, the first release of Automotive Manager doesn’t include usergroups. Realestate Manager 2.0 will include usergroups. The same code that enables usergroups to function on Realestate Manager can be copied to Automotive Manager and function with a few small modifications.

Software updates have been rather sporadic since we started with them. They have been composed mostly of bug fixes and fewer new features. Once Realestate Manager 2.0 is released, I intend to do a better job at keeping them updated with both bugfixes and new features.

I guess I should quit writing and get back to work.

The Past Week..

Posted on : 09-06-2009 | By : Chuck | In : Uncategorized


A week from today I woke up having pains in my lower abdominal area.. right around the place your appendix is. After not having any appetite what-so-ever and the pain persisting¬† through the afternoon, I decided to have it checked out, thinking it could be appendicitis. Cue two hospital visits on monday, visiting my doctor on wednesday, and getting a CT scan thursday. Turns out it wasn’t my appendix, but something’s up with my small intestine. Wonderful. I have to go see a specialist on the 18th.

I started my online classes to finish my Network Administration major at the beginning of the month. Hopefully the workload won’t be *too* bad when I start getting into them more.

In other news, New Deal Multimedia has a number of new sites we are preparing to release in the next few weeks. I can’t say any specifics, but be checking our portfolio occasionally.
