A.L. The Drummer

So here we go, for those of you who are interested - my ultra hip drum machine program!

http://alison.chaosnet.org/stuff/jdm.zip

It's a Java 5 application so should run on any computer with a soundcard as long as you have Java 5 installed. This can be downloaded at http://www.java.com/en/download/download_the_latest.jsp .

Basically you just unzip the jdm.zip file and double-click jdm.jar, or go into the right directory on the command line and type "java -jar jdm.jar" (no quotes). It's pretty simple - check out the JDM.txt for details - but should be a bit of a fun distraction :-) It'd be awesome if anyone who downloads could send me comments and/or bug reports. I've got just under two weeks to submit the final version with documentation. Can't believe it's just a couple weeks to go till my uni is all over. Awesome. Now i just need to pay off all the debt i've amassed ;-)

Tomorrow is Ekka Day. Thought i was gonna have to work and swap days but i guess my boss found it in his heart to give us a break for a change. Also it's official, one of my colleagues and best friends at work resigned today to move on to greener pastures (innercity office and chunky raise). I know i could do the same thing and i think i will after Earthcore. I could really use every extra cent.

Had a wonderful weekend just gone, more later :-)
