Good News Everyone

Remember the Chat application?

Me and 2 friends of mine submitted this project as an iTi (Ideas to Income), which is an initiative of the company where I work for, where you submit ideas you have, so that the company can help you out with them (with resources, support, whatever…).

The idea got approved (freakin’ awesome), and so now, we have 48 hours (6 days) to achieve our goals for version 0.2, to use them when we think it’s best (obviously the company’s projects have a much higher priority).

The other good news, is that another colleague of mine, lent me his Mac, so I could compile the code over there (QT takes a lot of time compiling on a macBook), and although it couldn’t find a library (QtTest), I was able to replace it with something else (I was already thinking of making the move, so more power to me).

I’ve also moved the code from using Broadcast to use Multicast that basically should help us send some broadcasts pass some routers into other networks by using IGMP. Though it’s working great in Mac and Linux, I think Windows might still have a small bug.



(as I inserted this image, I opened a private chat with the mac computer (I’m on the Windows one), and the Mac laptop said: “Excuse me, but I need your attention”. COOL! I suppose alert() is doing it’s job :-))

and yes…. The screenshot is showing the color pick dialog (as always), and you can also notice a new button next to the color picker one (that is still under development, that’s why it doesn’t have an icon yet).


This one depicts the application running on a Linux environment (I had only shown before Windows), with a tab open with a private message from alemos, and of course… with the color dialog open, ONCE AGAIN.
