Just kidding, mostly. I got email today informing me that Watchr “has been released successfully in Brothersoft”. Congratulations!
Watchr is a tiny program I wrote five years ago. Ken and I were talking about how we’d like something that pops up images when they’re posted to Flickr. For reasons I don’t now recall, we then wrote two separate applications, his in Python and mine in Java. (By the way, that page is the only use so far of erikostrom.com, except as a mirror of drowning.org, the equally dated site about my singer-songwriter career.)
I’m a little surprised to find that it still basically works. Write once, run everywhere, I guess! Although it still has the same Mac bug noted in 2005, which bothers me more now that I’m a Mac user.
