Shion news

October 16th, 2009

A few days ago, I posted an update describing what the company is up to. I wanted to follow up with a products post that describes what’s going on with some of the internal Audacious Software work. Since that work is almost all Shion-related at this point, this will be a Shion post. :-)

Company update: Client work

October 12th, 2009

It recently dawned on me that a whole month had passed since this weblog was last updated. The last several months have been quite busy between work on internal projects like Shion and work on external client projects. The lack of posts was not a symptom of a lack of company activity, but rather a reflection of how busy the company has actually been.

I’ve posted extensively on Shion and other internal projects, but for readers interested in the kinds of paying work that Audacious Software takes on, the list below is a sample of some of the projects from the last couple of months.

Weblog updates

October 12th, 2009

Recently, I received a query asking why the comments were closed on this weblog, even for the most recent posts. The simple answer is that when I leave the comments open, the weblog becomes deluged with a variety of spam and I spend more time worthing through the spam than doing useful things such as writing code or updating this very weblog.

Closing comments was always intended to be a short term solution, but has persisted longer than I originally intended. This morning, to address this problem, I installed reCAPTCHA as a means of leaving the weblog open, but not dealing with offers for little blue pills or whatever the Russians are peddling these days.

I apologize for the inconvenience of having you prove that you are indeed a human each time you want to post a comment, but as recent history shows, the alternative isn’t any better.
