August is officially over (according to Julius Caesar) so time again for another State of the Company. The big news this month is that we have expanded! An incredible office opened up on the third floor and since things were getting a little cramped up in the tower we decided to get it. Half of the new office is for Peter and half has been converted into an employee lounge of sorts. It's pretty swanky. Unfortunately I keep forgetting to bring my camera into the office so no pictures yet but as soon as I remember I'll update this post.
For any budding entrepreneurs out there considering whether to get an office or work out of a garage, definitely get the office. Yep it's a little extra money a month (when we were first looking prices ranged from ~$275-$600 per month for single offices) but the ability to go somewhere outside of your house and focus on your work is priceless.
On the work front Kevin is still working diligently on his office management project. In fact, due to a shortage of decent backup programs Kevin spent part of August porting Duplicity from Linux to Windows! Woohoo Kevin! While we are waiting on some items to be sorted out with the heat mapping project Peter has been working on a GUI for Git which sounds like it is coming along nicely although I haven't seen it yet so it could be a lie just like the cake. Finally I have been finishing up the real estate search plug-in for Joomanager, making modifications to the Huffing For Stuffing site and working on my Orbit presentation. We are going to have a ton of great information at our Orbit presentations (the first two will be in Big Fork on the 22nd and Frenchtown on the 23rd) so come by if you can make it. Also the next LAN party will be on Saturday October 9th at the Library. See you next month!
