Uformia, Planetary Mood Ring 

Looked into a Joomla related development task, to create a booking module for tour providers and hotels.
Did initial set up of their new VPS. It is a Rackspace Cloud Server, which seems much the same as any other VPS. Their control panel was down when I went to administer it, which was unfortunate timing. However I've since set it up with Webmin (which seems very lightweight and effective), the usual Apache/MySQL/PHP stack, as well as Exim + Dovecot for email accounts.

Updated the PlanetaryMoodRing site, so that it provides emails of the submitted data, and automatically subscribes the person to a mailing list. I decided that the user needing to confirm membership was acceptable (instead of just subscribing them immediately) on the idea that people who provided their email address out of habit, without reading "for mailing list", will mark the mailing list as spam, potentially leading to the list being binned across an entire email provider.

Put together the forms and displays for http://www.planetarymoodring.org/ on short requirements. Produces table based HTML displays, as well as tab-separated text for machine use.

Using PHP's lambda function feature (create_user_function) and variable functions (put the name of a function in a variable, as a string, and then calling it $var() ) to allow me to use the same code for outputting both HTML and TXT, and setting prefix/postfix strings and text escaping functions (TXT has no escaping... hmm, should escape tabs).

Ran into Magic Quotes being enabled on the server. All strings were deliberately escaped by the code, but Magic Quotes was getting in before my code, leading to double escaping.

Continued development of EvoGrid bonding. Implemented a number of missing or incorrect pieces, which introduced new issues that are exposed now that force values are being used rather then ignored.

EvoGrid, Asterisk 

Digging into correct bond formation in EvoGrid. Working back to original principles for their formation, looks like the initial "this seems to work" implementation really didn't.

Poked around with Asterisk call plans, I can now call friends on another Asterisk server using my Asterisk server, by prefixing their extension with an identifier for that server.

I've implemented a visualizer that parses EvoGrid histories and produces a batch of POV-Ray scene files. These can then be rendered and combined into a video file.

Having visualization made it clear that the bonds being created between atoms was making them stay VERY far apart. They were being held at the specified distance. I'm now altering the range used for bond parameters to try and get something more intuitively correct.
