  • Wrapped up and launched the SAP Hybris/Sage 300 order gateway and custom time tracking software
  • Helped launch the new Real Sports online store at shop.realsports.ca
    • Now based on Shopify, but we were asked to help with all the customization that still needs to be done with code, like the mailing list sign up forms,
  • Moved one last client’s email to a new server, which allows us to shut down an old server we have been using
  • Our hardware for a prototype device we’re building has begun arriving from Adafruit and a few vendors we found on Aliexpress
  • Several new leads, including a mobile app and an online learning platform

  • Stuart – Tweeten – Twitter desktop “client” for for Windows
  • Derek – Openvid
    • Openvid is an easy way for anyone to quickly record their screen, mic, and (if you want) front-facing camera on any web page. If you want to easily QA your new mock ups, give feedback to a friend on their site, or create a quick tutorial for your product, Openvid will let you do that for free without having to worry about video storage, upload time, or recording time limits.

What are you up to lately?

  • Stuart – Unpacking the house continues. London Public Library Board work and this podcast.
  • Derek – I’ve been diversifying CleverHost’s SSL certificate offerings the last couple of days, looking to launch a dedicated SSL certificate vending site, coaching my son’s soccer team, and looking at volunteering with a non-profit once soccer season’s done.

Apologies for the sound quality.  It is something we are actively working on to try and solve. Stuart should be setup up in his permanent studio with a wired connection next week. (Fingers crossed!)
