Here's as much of a Christmas gift as I can give you-- a few more screenshots of the UI with the tab row above the toolbar.
Here's Samantha's contact record in edit mode (note, I squished the pix in the not-so-good blog software on Jen, 8, jsut to make the blog layout better)
I know the screenshots are not the public beta that some of you were hoping for, but we will have a public beta as some point in the new year.
Meanwhile, for Christmas and New Year's I'm heading to upstate New York with my family. Now, you non-U.S. folk might not realize, but New York is a pretty big state and where I'm going is nowhere NEAR NYC. In fact, it's the total boondocks. Near Watertown, about 40 miles from the Canadian border. My Father's house is also about half a mile from the main gate of Camp Drum, an Army base. The base has been getting more and more active, of course, since we are at war, but even before that, urban legend has it that some goverment officials did a study on the winter conditions, and discovered that Camp Drum had conditions just as harsh as Alaska when it came to snow, cold, and wind. Lovely. So, instead of sending troops all the way to Alaska to train, they started coming to upstate New York. So if you don't hear from me it might mean that we've had a huge storm, and we're without electricity or internet (although the forecast looks mild).
Then, weather permitting, we are off to spend New Year's with my great-aunt Claudette in her big old stone farmhouse in the adirondack mountains. He farm is about 30 miles from Lake Placid, where the winter Olympics have been held. Maybe we'll take a day trip there and try a bobsled. But mainly, we'll hang around the wood stove and play cards. Aunt Claudette is one of the coolest people I know. At 91, she's lived through her share of history. Last spring, on my way to DNUG, I called her while waiting at the airport. I told her I was gong to city in Germany that she probably never heard of-- Karlsruhe.
Her reply? "Oh, yes, I've been there. In 1945, we set up a hospital in the Castle when I was an Army nurse. Its' the one with the roads that fan out from the castle." Every time I vist, I learn more-- whether world history, or family history.
So, in case I get stuck in a blizzard or ice storm, Happy New Year!
