The BOASphere is the vernacular name for my collective project list, many of which are powered by a common database, CRM, and analytical package called BOA -- which was the last interesting thing I finished -- and that was three years ago. Honestly, though, it's a great app, 72,000 lines of code all written by one guy, stable as heck, in it's fourth generation, though at least one of the first generation installations is still being used heavily eight years later without a single patch. Oh yeah, and I don't believe in developer-dictated product obsolescence, so when they do call -- once a year at best -- I still happly support them. (So, take that, Ballmer!) Personally I live in it. Manages my email, my RSS reading list, my social calendar, etc. I fully endorse this product, and honestly state that I couldn't live without it. Still think it's not for you? Hey, guess what, you're soaking in it.
Mostly, this page just serves as a constant reminder that I have no excuse for claiming I'm "bored," seeing as how I've got about a dozen hair-brained schemes in the works that I've never done anything with, and I really need to get off my butt and start working on some of these.
However, as you have arrived at this otherwise non-advertised page, you may as well take a look around, see if anything is of any particular interest to you, then email me and encourage me to finish up whatever it is that struck you as having potential. If you're really brave, you might even offer to help me finish, enhance, market, franchise, or sell off one of these projects.
I won't hold my breath, however, and neither should you.
The BOASphere Philanthropic Foundation is a 90125B organization dedicated to the fight for truth, justice, and the American way. Because there are many worthwhile causes out there -- baby seals, 3rd world children, global warming, economic bailouts -- we choose a new crusade each month and dedicate our resources to raising money to do our part. Last month, we raised $65.50 for the orphans of police scientist Barry Allen. This month we're hoping to surpass that total as we begin our crusade to help Thomas Elliot, recently left penniless after his entire life's savings was swindled away by con-artists. So, please, give generously and help us do some good out there. Our top donator gets a box of random crap out of the junk box in my lab. THAT should be fun if nothing else.
