New Office

With a new job comes a new office. It's a bit of a mess. My boss is a bit of a slob. I don't know why he insists on keeping a sewing machine on my desk.

This is my first day of self-employment. So far it doesn't really seem like work. It's more like what I would normally enjoy doing in my free time on the computer anyhow. Hopefully I'll figure out a way to actually earn an income with it at some point. But for now it'll be a lot of research and learning.

I'm hoping to target my applications to the iPhone and Mac, so I have to get up to speed first with Apple's Cocoa programming environment. I'm already an official Apple-registered iPhone developer (along with about a bazillion other software developers chasing the iPhone application development goldrush), but I've been doing low-level embedded programming for the past 8 years, so it'll probably take me a month or so to get proficient with Apple's tools. Maybe in two months (hopefully less) I'll have something professional-looking for the iTunes store.
