Well... today is the day! In roughly 14 hours I will sit on-stage behind a drum kit and I will have to play live-on-stage a song together with the band!
I am so damned nervous... couldn't sleep well, trained the song over and over and over again... I am close to the point that "I can't hear it anymore! Arrghh"
All my friends, family and even lots of my colleagues at work will be there tonight... oh man... if I crush this... I'll dig a hole and jump in!
Luckily it's a rather small gig, not really a pure "friends&family" show but we are not on an open air stage, we play in a club/bar tonight, so the amount of people is limited. At least there will not be ten thousands of people watching me fail
I will post the video tomorrow if that's ok and then I'll also post the link to the app so you can take a look at the work the band and I did together.
For now, I have two things that I want to ask and tell:
First, what would you do? Imagine you are in my situation. You are about to do one of those once-in-a-lifetime things and you know, lots of people will be watching. What's your "Plan B", if something goes wrong? I mean... I really don't want to break the song but especially when drumming and you are over-nervous, your perception changes, time has a different speed, you see some things in slomo... and "time" is EVERYTHING behind the drums... The guitarist told me, his best trick right before a gig is a beer 1 hour before they start, a second beer 45 minutes before, a third 30 minutes before... well I guess you see the algorithm... I think I will trust him and I will use the same trick
Second, more important:
The band and I have a problem. I can "only" do Android Apps. I don't own a Mac and probably never will, I never had an iPhone but there still plenty iPhone users out there.
We are looking for someone (preferrably in Central Europe, but today on this planet, physical location doesn't matter that much) who would like to join us and port the App to iOS.
But I want to make one thing clear: There is no money involved. It is a Fan-Project, I did it for free for the Band because I damned LOVE their music, and anyone who ports this to iOS will do it for free, for the fun of it too. Are you someone who would be interested in that project?
Android is live, so there are no surprises, a quite simple server-file-format for the content files, the app is a more-or-less-sophisticated parser for content files, plays youtube-videos, shows lyrics.
It's not a technical nightmare, it's straight forward. I can give extensive docs about the format, and this should be possible in a short time (prob less than 100 hrs) in your free time.
Anyone interested to be part of a Fan Project? Your skills should cover: Async web requests, embed youtube videos, background checks (once a day) for new content, show notification.
You need to have an active developer account with apple and you will/may/must publish the app under your account/your name. THE APP IS YOURS AND STAYS YOURS. No Ads allowed. This is a free-fan-app with no monetarization background.
Your benefits would definitely be that you will meet the band (if you are luckily located in Vienna, Austria, Central Europe, Planet Earth, Milky way ) and join them in the studio, maybe even play along with them if you know how to play an instrument or if you can sing. Oh, and if you speak German, at least a little bit, it would help too
I have developed a product for Microsoft's SQL Server database. It is a source control tool very similar to what both Red-Gate and ApexSQL are offering but priced very affordably for individual developers. Unlike these two competing products, my software is designed with localized storage so that the files can be easily transferable to another machine that has my software installed.
The reason I developed this product was directly related to the many experiences I had in both my consulting assignments and full-time employment where I found that with the exception of those companies that had complete database groups, source control for applications was often poor and erratic while for database version control of SQL's object scripts it was non-existent.
On a number of occasions, while developing database applications and alongside that, the SQL procedures and modules to support these applications, I found my efforts hindered by others going in and changing those modules I was working on or even completely wiping them out without my ability to save them on a regular basis so that I could recover them if necessary.
Though my product has had several hundred downloads over the time I have been offering it I have received no sales. However, what has dismayed me even more is the lack of comments about my software that would give me an inkling as to why people who had downloaded the product chose not to pursue a purchase.
To date I have received one review by a download site that appeared to go through my software on a legitimate basis and liked it very much. Their only complaint was the "stodgy" interface, which I have since modernized.
I would like additional input to this effort to better understand if there is something in my work that is deficient or it is merely a marketing issue. As a result, I am offering 5 to 10 license keys to those developers that would take the time to review my product for me and give me some of the insight I am looking for.
My software is called, "SQL Server Source Control for Developers" and can be downloaded as a 30-day trial package from my business site... Black Falcon Software
These freely available keys will unlock the trial version making it a full version, which can be installed on up to 5 separate machines.
To obtain one of these licenses, simply contact me at my email address below and I will forward it to you.
If any of you would be willing to take the time out to work with my software and provide your comments to it as a result, it would be greatly appreciated...

Hi all, I am a beginner programmer and have an idea for a website. This website has to feature voting technology(?)*excuse the ignorance*, a username/profile base and the ability for a user to be able to post lengthy bits of information with pictures/media etc. Im fairly proficent in html and currently learning CSS, what other programing languages should I learn to be able to build such a website? Anyone interested in developing the website can email me @ [email removed]. Thanks for reading!

I just released V3 of my free internet radio player/recorder app Radio Ripper[^]. Would appreciate any feedback or bug reports. The app is pretty stable and requires no installation. It's totally portable and will even run off a USB stick.
My net nazi (I foolishly tried this from work) did not like your .exe download
Dear member of Staff,
The web-page that you are trying to access contains a malware and is unsafe to view.
If this is incorrect, please email Information Security Alerts for clarification.
I suspect I would get that from any .exe I tried to download from the net
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
ok I need advice please.
firstly I don’t know anything about programming or software design/development but as you probably can guess already…. I need help designing/programming a software.
I can’t disclose too much information here at this stage but i will do my best.
I came up with a solution for a problem which is in the form of a design/product that consists of a mechanical, electronic and software elements rapped up in one package that has nothing like in in the market.
its the early stages still and I’m working with a design and manufacturing engineer on building the prototype, now I need someone who is very experienced and well rounded to take care of the software solution.
my questions at this stage are:
What is the best reasonable approach to this, I do not have a budget for this project and I’m buying everything needed from a low paid job which is very hard thing to do but i do believe this product will be huge and more appealing to a large market place from multiple sectors. so do i offer the software for a price on top of the product hardware pice that would pay for the developer time when the product launches, or a percentage of the sales or is it unreasonable to ask for such work without budget…how do i go about making this product a reality from the software side.
there are couple of softwares on the market which dose the functions that i need (not the canon example i used below), is it moral, ethical for my team (to be) to use reverse engineering to build the software i need? possibly till i get financed (and it will get financed) then allocate a budget to make this software fully rounded software and add more to it and make it our own!
not sure how i can ask to get a time scale for how long it would take to develop such a program without specifying all i need from it, but lets say its something like canon eos utilities, how much time it takes to develop such a programe (our software isn’t that but the functions needed are close enough to canon eos utilities/in part the software has to communicate with other hardware such as a digital camera-LCD screen, steam live feed, and send video files to the pc via usb..but that's not all we need it to do but I’m using canon software as a rough guide to the size of the project and hopefully i can get an estimate of time.
is it possible for one developer to do this? who i need to look for/what languages?
hope i didn’t sound like a complete idiot but really have no idea how to approach this problem other than putting all i can out there as a starting point.
