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.
Here’s the first page as a taster…
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)

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:

To undo the last evolution in dev mode with Play Framework 2 you can do the following:
- Use your favourite tool for directly accessing the database (e.g. psql)
- Directly run the ‘down’ change by copying and pasting the SQL
- Run ‘select max(id) from play_evolutions’
- Run ‘delete from play_evolutions where id = ‘ appending the value from the previous step
- Edit the evolution to want you wanted it to be
- Stop and restart play
- Browse to the webapp and you should see the usual message about needing to do a database evolution
