I decided to try to keep a diary on my thoughts and programming for orbiter. So i hope you enjoy this and learn something.
I am busy with my 10 month son, Gregory, which has cut into my time for hobbies. Luckily for you orbiter fans this mean that I have given up trying to go to do any live-action stuff for the forseeable future. (http://www.greyhorn.org
When we got new flooring put in the downstairs of my house I rearranged my office area so that my son's play pen is right next to me so it makes it a little easier to deal with him and still get stuff done. I do a couple of hours of custom programming for local business in addition to my regular job.
For orbiter, I am working on laying the groundwork for gemini 5. I am trying to streamline the panel code. Gemini probably has twice the instruments and switches of mercury and the giant switch statements have to go. Instead I will be making instrument objects and using linked lists to mange them. In addition I created multi_stage6.h that uses the new VESSEL2 callbacks.
I am almost done with the V2/Bumper which is designed to be a programming tutorial as well as a add-on.
I am also working on sputnik's tiny gemini LEM and using that as a testbed for the new panel object as well as experimenting with various gemini instruments.
