It’s Really, Really, Almost Finis

Ok, so I said it was almost finished a week ago. Well, it’s now more, betterer, almosterer, finisheder. I didn’t get to work on it us much as I wanted last weekend.

The good news is testing is going well. I’ve made a few tweaks, but no major bugs have shown up. (They’re waiting for you, of course.) I need to finish creating the installation disk image, do a couple of installation tests on a clean system, make some updates to this web site, and spend a few days coming up with more really bad puns for the big announcement post. (You’re welcome.)

For the geeky, nerdy, nosy, curious ones among you, here’s a more detailed list of what’s left to do:

  • Finalize the installation guide with updated screenshots.
  • Test the installation on a clean machine and over prior versions.
  • Review links in the installation guide, applet page and alternative installation guide.
  • Update the F.A.Q.s.
  • Revise the home page with a description of the new approach required for Day One 2.
  • Create the final installation disk image.
  • Hire the herald trumpeters and notify the paparazzi.
  • Rollout the big announcement.
  • Drink.Heavily.

Once all of that is done, I’ll go back to the applet page and fill in the TBDs. (To get this version out the door sooner, I only posted applets that I’m actually using.)

Hopefully, I’ll have this ready for you by the end of the weekend. We’ll see….
