There is a new DatePad!
DatePad was a great tool for Windows, but sadly the software did not survive the update from 32bit to 64bit. The software did not work anymore and I never made a new version. I simply did not have the time for it.
Recently I got involved with a new development environment and got to build a small app to see how everything works. It did not take long for me to decide to rebuild the old DatePad but now for a mobile platform.
The result is a super simple and easy app for Android. You can find the new DatePad Mobile in the Google play store.
It has been silent for a couple of months. Not so very strange with two kids and the holidays. We went from one activity to another and it left me little time for my hobbies, like this blog. A shame really, but it is what it is.
Since the beginning of out holidays I’ve stopped writing. We first visited Holland for a few weeks, and had a really great time. During our time in the Netherlands the kids even spoke a little Dutch together, which made me very happy and even a bit proud. In Holland we did all the regular stuff. Spend time with family and friends, eat some smoked eel, visit the beach, the lake and my city, Leiden. All in all a good time.
After Holland we went to Torrevieja. Almost a month of beach, swimming pool, sun and relaxation. The nights were spend with our kids playing with a huge group of other kids, all in the closed area with the holiday houses. Alex also celebrated his birthday here with lots of activities and lots of presents.
Now we are again home, for quite some time already and we have gotten back in our normal routines. Boring and easy, and that is also quite good.
