Old Androids Never Die, They Just Have A Few Screws Loose


November 4, 2014

It's really hard sometimes working for a company that likes to put Windows first, EVERYWHERE. They're not nice about it, but I've finally gotten it to the point where I don't need a Windows VM anymore.

The main thing was this IM/phone/meeting app called Wync (which is a Lync clone) that actually *works*. I can call, I can join meetings, I can watch presentations... and yeah, I had to pay for it, but oh well.

The other thing was getting GreaseMonkey to do the job of fixing our horrendously-made timesheet website, so that it could be accessed using Firefox. They had a horrendously bad bug that was EASILY fixed with a few lines of code, but nobody seems to be able to update the site anymore.

I'm also experimenting with the Ubuntu SDK and QT. So far things are going well, and it's nice to have a functional IDE again. Eclipse didn't draw icons properly and Anjuta has been ignored for years on Ubuntu...
