Hip hip hooray, this chap here just turned 19. I haven't been active for some time because the quality of the overall posts on Frihost were so frustrating that I figured out, I had better things to do than replying to nonsense threads during my precious holidays. (I only had 3 weeks of holidays) So in that period of time, I learned some new languages, programming languages that is. I learned how to build PHP and MySQL driven websites, like CMS's etc. I also learned AppleScript, an english like programming language for Mac users that enables you to do quite useful things with just minor code.
For example, I made a script that launches on startup and asks me if I want to clean my desktop and clean out my trash. It also checks for old backups on my computer (more on that later on ) and deletes them too. It then asks me what WorkFlow I want to start, I made three basic workflows: As Usual (Safari in space 1, Mail in space 4, Colloquy in space 2), Web Development (Safari in space 2, MAMP in space 4, Coda in space 5, Colloquy in space 6 and Finder in space 8 ) and App Development (Xcode in space 4, Safari space 1, Colloquy space 2). Depending on what workflow I selected, it then backs up my files in a temporary space, so I can freely adjust without worrying that the CMD+Z doesn't go that far back to go back to the beginning. Those backups are also the backups that get deleted on startup.
And as you might have guessed, I'm currently learning Objective-C so I can make native Cocoa Apps for my Mac. Well actually the learning is on a hold, exams have a priority of course but once those are finished, I'll continue my journey in the wide world of C, Objective-C and Cocoa.
Well that's it for today.

Happy Birthday, adri! I remember 19, of course, that was way too many years ago for me. Congratulations on adding the programming language.
