Starting a Startup: Out of Practise

Documenting the development of the prototype of RopeWeaver

This has got to have been the worst day I’ve had with this since the first. Practically did nothing all morning, as I was paralysed by not knowing how to progress from getting a list of work orders into the capacity load bar chart. Lunch was minestrone soup with 2 slices of brown bread. Earthquake in Japan.

Early afternoon I arrange a meeting for Monday, down in Bedford where the 4th business partner’s consultancy firm is. I need more information about how the logistics methodology should be functioning within my system; I know the reason why I can’t move with this is because I am simply too out of practice with the business concepts. I need advice, from someone with a passing knowledge of software engineering, so I’m going to go and talk to Kris at Levee.

Most of the afternoon is not much better than the morning; however I finally get a grip and get my shit together for 3.00 p.m. I rip out most of the work order list code I did yesterday and begin crafting it afresh, as part of the reason I’m struggling is because I had coded myself into a corner. I finish the day calmer and much happier than when it started. I do, however, seem to have caught a delightful cold from somewhere.
