Should I Wear Pants?I pushed an update tonight to Should I Wear Pants?, it was a fairly significant set of changes, and increments the version to 1.5.0.  Changes are as follows:

  • Added the capability for users to specify their location. To do this:
    • Open the preferences screen
    • Under “ABOUT YOU”, uncheck “Use Current Location”
    • The “Location” option will be made available – open this to set your location.
    • Refer to the Help topic called “Specifying Your Location” for more information on supported formats, etc.
  • Added Christmas outfits; these will run from the 23rd to the 27th if you’re in Calendar Fun mode.
  • Fixed a number of small issues with location and weather detection.
    • This was made possible by some new automated testing; we now have approximately 275 cities around the world verified as working and accurate, while ensuring no regressions occurred for the common case when fixing the edge cases.
    • Note that this doesn’t cover the entire world; thus far, we have the Americas, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand covered. We are working to add coverage to the rest of the world.

If you haven’t, do me a favor and check out the app.  If you’re feeling especially nice, I’d certainly appreciate a 5-star rating on the Play Store.

Back From the Grave

To anybody out there who enjoys reading about my life (there are apparently at least several of you, based on traffic statistics), I finally decided to resurrect this thing and start posting again.

The tl;dr of the past few years has been as follows, in roughly this order:

  • Quit EQ
  • Picked up WoW, put it down, picked it up again (rinse, repeat)
  • Cut off my long hair
  • Joined the ranks of smartphone users (Droid 1)
  • Wrecked the Blackura
  • Bought a white RSX with a blown motor, pulled the motor from the Blackura, and put it in what is now the Blankura
  • Got a full-time software development job
  • Entered a relationship
  • Rooted phone; switched to CyanogenMod
  • Exited that relationship
  • Moved to Delaware
  • Went on a bender for a while
  • Went to BlizzCon 2011
    • Saw a taping of Craig Ferguson while in the LA area
  • Got promoted to management
  • Entered a relationship
  • Upgraded to the Droid 4
  • Bought a house
  • Moved to management at work
  • Launched my first Android app, (begin shameless advertising) Should I Wear Pants?
  • Fixed this blog

And that’s roughly it.  There may be some detailed posts about some of these points; if so, I’ll update this post with appropriate links.
