My apologies if I've been slow responding to emails lately. You know the saying, "When it rains, it pours?"
In addition to all the routine
xDevchaos, I'm taking care of my mother who just had a total knee replacement in April. She's moved in with me as I play nursemaid, chef, and driver during her recuperation and physical therapy. (She's doing great, by the way. Her progress is above average. She has graduated from walker to cane and is already moving significantly better than before the operation.)
In the middle of all that you might have heard the news that
xDevhas purchased RBLibrary from Norm Palardy. RBLibrary is a purchase-by-article site, unlike xDev, where we sell full magazine issues. Combining the two resources will be great in the long run, as it will give Xojo users more choice.
It's going to take me time to figure out exactly how to redo both websites—I need to look at various purchase systems, website tech, and overall philosophy—but I'm planning to at least get something quick-and-dirty up and running as soon as possible with a major redesign a few months down the road. Stay tuned.
Final Days of Omegabundle
The 2016 Omegabundle (http://www.omegabundle.net) just has a few days left. If you were waffling on getting this great deal, time is against you. Though the deadline has been extended, it officially ends May 15th, so make your decision now!
In This Issue
Though we're missing a few columns (and are seeking writers), we still have a packed issue. Mark Strickland writes about creating a temperature control system for his sunroom, but it's really about how to kludge together various systems into a cohesive whole. Sam Rowlands has a pertinent piece on app security, I cover Xojo 2016r1's new HiDPI capabilities, Markus Winter continues his multicore series, and JC Cruz begins a new health disorder project. Enjoy!
