Well, OK, thats a little optimistic. Its certainly 25% *feature* complete but its not 25% of the way ready to actually have users. The interface still needs to be integrated, for example (I have functional skeletons up for most of it but they are too ugly to ever show to people, even if they do have the right form elements on them). I plan on going public with the problem when I hit 50%, which might be as early as next week considering I have three days of it off. Its Golden Week and this year instead of taking a well-deserved vacation I’ll be coding and writing resumes, bleh. With a day trip out to a hotsprings or something… far, far away from a computer.

I had not one but two issues that couldn’t be taken care of in a five minute email. Oh no!
One feature that I had in mind for the 1.1 release of Kalzumeus (does it even make sense to have a 1.1 version of a webapp? Well, you get the general drift) was the ability to send a real, honest-to-God postal mail in an automated fashion. It is a requirement with legal significance for some of my customers, and all of my customers would see the ability and go “Oooh, that would save me so much hassle”. I have been searching for a good way to do this for a while. Obviously, doing it myself would transform me from a highly-paid software developer to a low-paid postal clerk, which is frankly stupid when there are plenty of businesses out there which offer ways to do it without ever having to lick a stamp.
