Software, Web sites and roller coasters, oh my!

I finally got to a point where my forum software, POP Forums, is ready for testing in its new, rewritten, .Net form ("that's one degree of seperation," bizatch ;)). It has been a real challenge because I've had to start entirely from scratch on the new platform. Already there are thousands of lines of code and it still doesn't have some of the existing or new features.

On top of that, I'm also re-designing Guide to The Point. That should be ready in no time because I'm using CliqueSite to run it. What makes that system so cool is that I more or less just have to design the template, and I'm good to go. The rest is all generated on the fly as far as navigation and such goes.

These are both some serious milestones for my own personal projects, and especially cool considering that I have a lot less free time now that I'm working again.

Steph mentioned to me that I've always had a project to do for as long as she's known me. When I stop and think about it, I think she's right. That makes me stop and wonder... on one hand I don't want to die not doing the things that I wanted to, but at the same time am I going to miss something by not stopping and looking around (even if that's doing nothing with my wife)? Neither scenario is a good thing.

Ferris Beuler once said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it."

Good advice for a movie.
