Attic gadgets

Nipped up into my Dads attic yesterday and had my camera so I took some photos of a couple of my old gadgets.?
At some point I need to go and sort the attic out properly. Once we have bought a house I will get them all down. I especially miss my Sega Saturn for some reason.?

On these pictures there are... MacSE30, Systems Pong game, Jaguar 64, SNES, Atari Portfolio, Ericsson Windows Mobile PDA, Compaq Contura, Apple Powerbook 140, ZX Spectrum and various laptops, Nokia Communicator 9000, Psion Sienna and Mark II, Game Gear, Various Desktops including Mac with CD drive and tray loader.Toshiba T1800.

I have many more but time was limited!

Specflow

After listening to .Net Rocks with Scott Millett this week I felt a renewed enthusiasm for trying out some BDD. I downloaded Specflow and got straight on with the screen cast they have on their website. The video acts as a good introduction into how to get up and running in Specflow. Interestingly it also gave me a better insight into how bowling works. I have never really thought about it. I normally just wang the balls down the lane until the game is over! Specflow introduces the idea of writing the specification first. It uses a specific language called Gherkin which comes from Ruby land. You will need NUnit installed as well. An example of it is:  [edit: NUnit is what I have used up to now but Specflow is compatible with other testing frameworks aswell. See the comments section below.] Feature : Passwords In order to have a strong password As a new user or existing user changing my password I need to check if my password is alphanumeric and is greater than 6 characters Scenario

Cab Control

Received another call today from a company interested in my  Cab Control Software . Basically it's taxi management . The software needs a re-write to get it from Windows Forms onto the web. I have great hopes for the software. It really just needs to time and ingenuity pouring into it. I have loads of ideas for it but just have so little time.  It currently has this functionality which I'll need to get across:  Add drivers and Taxis and keep track of their contact details, addresses, licence details, CRB checks and eligibility to work in the UK. Basic account management functions, such as creating a customer account and putting the account on hold.  Add Bookings for drivers and customers Creating reports for customer accounts that could be exported as a CSV file for billing purposes.  Creating reports for drivers to know how many pickups the drivers had made. Query the bookings for enquiries and police check up reports. Provide management tools to check MOT and Service details

My home office upgrade wish list.

My home office is almost due an upgrade. I have been holding off until my youngest daughter is out of her cot as then we can finally dispatch the enormous monstrosity of a cot out from the kids bedroom and the drawers that are in my office can be banished giving me better access to my wonderful whiteboard. My other improvements will be purchasing a new, larger monitor. I currently work from a single 22ich Samsung which just doesn't cut it anymore, I did have two at some point but I can't recall what I did with it. I really enjoy using a touch screen so I think I will go for one of these 27inch Hannspree models that I have used before. I put a lot of hours in at home and whilst I have a reasonable chair I still tend to suffer with some back problems, so my next port of call will be to get a Varidesk for home. It works an absolute treat at work and just lets me switch stuff up when I feel like it. they take a reasonable amount of desk space up but I tend to leave my desk fairly
