On Clojure (part 7)

Some good Clojure news, some bad Clojure news So… first the bad news. I’ve had to drop the Qt port of my little Clojure recruitment database. I was just hitting too many problems using Qt-Jambi and it was taking too long. The client needed a working database ASAP and I wasn’t gonna get there.

On Clojure (part 2)

Distributing QtJambi with Clojure. How to bundle up Clojure programs for distribution One of the questions I’ve seen coming up a few times is how to distribute clojure programs. The obvious answer is to build executable JAR files. A while ago I produced a simple database application for my girlfriends recruitment business, NRecruit.

Things that happened yesterday

Tech content? Hmmm I am aware that I should put more technical content here, trouble is I don’t have much to say at the moment. Work is dragging on with the same old problems with different hardware. Outside work I am actively working on something (smallish) using Erlang to get my skills in that area up to scratch before starting something else (still smallish, but bigger). Schmap In the mean time here are a couple of things that happened yesterday....

Whilst in this area of Munich, where Oktoberfest takes place, we got to see the young and trendy types and I realised that I was not as “down” with the young people as I imagined (I mean, can you even imagine me not being cool?...

Guest appearance

I made a guest appearance in Nic’s day-shot the other day. We were sitting having drinks on our balcony for the first time. Very nice. I was actually pulling this expression on purpose but I do look like I’ve got something way too hot in that mug :-)

Birthday It was my birthday two days ago. At this age they tend to go with less of a bang.

Auf Deutsch

A little Danish elefant embraces his future in Germany. I guess everyone knows now that Nic and I are moving to Munich next year.

Nic and I went to Windsor on Sunday on a whim. I took Nic to Carluccio’s for the first time. She was very pleased with the ciocolatte Fiorentina - it’s nice that little things make her so happy. :-) We also wandered round the castle for a bit and took at quick trip to the shops to buy my mums birthday present.
