Trumpet photos – wireframes

A while back I put together this set of wireframes to illustrate a concept I developed from an idea someone mentioned to me. It’s an example of something I’d like to do more – defining software products through wireframes, prototyping and the written word.

(In)Equal treatment in law

Straight and wide road, good visibility, driving a car but hands behind head for 30s = no-one harmed & 12 month ban, £655 and 100 community hours (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-york-north-yorkshire-25624978)

Inner city, driving a lorry but using a mobile phone = one more dead person & no ban, no fine (http://road.cc/content/news/57677-bow-roundabout-nobody-blame-death-cyclist-svitlana-tereschenko-says-coroner)

Neither seems right.

How much for a web app?

Here’s a great article about the length of a piece of string cost of a website:

However, I would put building a web app as being possible in the £15,000 to £25,000 category.

Better than the back of the sofa

Two 10p coins, one 20p, one 5p, three pennies, white plastic nut, marble, two paper clips, one plectrum and a small white plastic rabbit. My booty from repairing our dryer. From deep inside the dryer after much dismantling, scratching of head and more dismantling, I cleaned out one compartment inside the machine to discover and retrieve the aforesaid collection. I wouldn’t spend four hours digging around at the back of the sofa but I dare say I would have had much less success there than with the dryer. How else should one spend the first Sunday of the year but making use of a replacement parts kit to put back in place a key ingredient of the family household support system?

For the fact-minded reader I can share the following information that I previously did not know:

I’m off to work out what to do with my booty…

Play DB going back in time

To undo the last evolution in dev mode with Play Framework 2 you can do the following:

  1. Use your favourite tool for directly accessing the database (e.g. psql)
  2. Directly run the ‘down’ change by copying and pasting the SQL
  3. Run ‘select max(id) from play_evolutions’
  4. Run ‘delete from play_evolutions where id = ‘ appending the value from the previous step
  5. Edit the evolution to want you wanted it to be
  6. Stop and restart play
  7. Browse to the webapp and you should see the usual message about needing to do a database evolution
