Keep me going
give me coffee!
So... weekend of coding started. Or rather weekend of creating certificates and provisioning profiles.
After some mails, I decided to prolonged my iPhone Dev Program in the hope of finally publishing the calculator. As we have iPhone OS 3.1 now and I had to quench some smaller bugs, there is a final adhoc beta program during next week.
People who have submitted their iPhone/iPod UDID to me earlier can dig right in. Other willing to participate have to mail me their UDID. I'll have to add it to the provisioning profile, recompile and redistribute the app. I'll do this one time tomorrow and one time sunday night.
Once downloaded, unzip - then drag rpnCalculator.mobileprovision and rpnCalculator.app onto your iTunes. Sync.
PS. how to get the UDID?
- click on "Serial Number", it will change to "Identifier"
- copy the "Idenifier" by pressing cmd-c or selecting Edit->Copy from the iTunes menu
- paste it to a mail to mikesmassivemess(/)kronenberg(/)org
This release just adds UDIDs that I received until 20091005 2100CET.
Just a small hint on what I do, and why there are not to much updates to this blog...
I usually post, if I have something to offer, except on my "small sources of joy" – and by offering I don't think on "offering apologies on why there are no updates today" 🙂 . I use most of my time to propel my projects, writing the blog-entry is to dot the i.
I hear you, I read all your comments (as I have to allow them to the board), I read all the emails – but I can only answer that much. I really hear you.
But if you want to
- feel the pulse
- know where I run into building problems with latest darwine
- what features rpncalc is receiving this instant
- see if i find a fix to the prefix problem in ies4osx
...have a look at twitter or even follow me – as I often drop a line when I hit my head.
Did I really say the whole nine miles? Here is the Dashboard widget for OS X :).
This time we go the whole nine yards.
After testing and using the rpn-calculator on the iPod Touch, a member of my family (with tablet) asked if it was possible to do a non safari version. I made some changes and wrote a .webapp wrapper for prism, so that it can be used comfortably on prism (or firefox).
What's prism and what are .webapps? prism is basically a webbrowser without the browser UI. It loads .webapps (webpages) and runs them like a normal applications.
Here's the rpn-calculator.webapp.
If You have installed prism, this will load and install the calc.
I hope You enjoyed Christmas eve as I did. I somehow managed to get around all the hassle and lay hands on a iTouch 🙂 - What a gadget!
As I'm a big fan of RPN, You can imagine that I was not exactly happy with the integrated calculator. So I started to code a webapp-replica of the HP 32S II. Having me served well over nearly two decades, the 32S II is still a trusted companion of mine.
Basic functionality is now finished, but it still lacks key features like menus, programming and equitation solving :). I think my old HP will remain on my desk for some more years.
