Sun Feb 28 1999 18:25: OK, The notebook program, MK IV, is now operational. Some things don't work, but the important thing does. And the important thing is that people can have any number of notebooks, and the notebooks are kept in the user's .notebook directory. The only system notebook is the public notebook, and I may make even that on a per-user basis.
Actually the important thing is that I can add to and edit NYCB. My development cycle looks like this (at least for programs that I personally use):
- Think of a new feature.
- Add the feature to the program, breaking it.
- Fix the program without taking out the new feature.
- Lather, rinse, repeat.
This works out fine because I have a strong incentive to fix broken programs which I use.
