I am still working on Screens as you probably can see by my twitter stream. Its still taking me forever to design the interfaces. Once I have an interface design, coding is very quick per component. I just spend alot of time perfecting my interfaces.
I know… I am a perfectionist and this system will never be more than vaporware. But even if so, I owe my full time job to Screens from all the years of research that I am able to use in my coding at work. Many of the projects I work on are directly affected by my work on Screens over the years. So even if Screens never leaves the ground, it has given me my paycheck. Not too shabby.
I think its safe to conclude that PalmOS is out of the picture not because of me but because of Palm. Everyone said that someone else will beat me to the punch, but it looks like the ship sank before that ever happened. Probably why the ship sank.
If I get back to the alpha stage that I got to two years ago, that would be great and show that at least I am doing something. Luckily Screens is multi-platform so it can just be ported to the handheld platform at the time. Again, once I reach the alpha stage again, I will upload my sources back into SVN.
I am now 26, married for 5 years with a 3 1/2 year old son and a 2 year old daughter working at a high-tech job. Screens gave me the last bit.
