If we can have ‘artisanal’ bread and beer, I don’t see why we can’t have ‘artisanal’ software!

And there is a sale of artisanal software over at:
https://www.artisanalsoftwarefestival.com/

My own Hyper Plan and Easy Data Transform software are on sale at 25% off. Other CRIMPing favourites such as Tinderbox, Scrivener and Devonthink are also on sale.

Note that some of the software is Mac only.

HyperPlan has been very useful as a companion to task lists.

In my world, managers and customers always craft guaranteed failure modes before making requests. It’s like they want to win the lottery, but there’s a use case mandate to deliver the winnings by winged unicorns and fairy godmother carriages.

I regularly use HyperPlan to keep track of tasks, categorizing modes of constipation against managers experiencing urgency.

The first part of such projects is always stressful. Once developers can get managers fighting among themselves, we poor soldiers in the trenches have a chance to deliver polished solutions in a relaxed, manager-free, work environment.

HyperPlan is great.

I just saw the video for Easy Data Transform - impressive!

Our local property tax district is out of control. I asked for a copy of the tax roll and got a text file containing a single line of 336 million characters. Deliberately, I’m sure, no explanation of the data format was given.

Some research in their budget revealed a software vendor which led to documentation of the file format. I’m sure they intended me to not make sense out of what they sent. Python is my friend, and I wrote a class that parses the data, which is about five data structures intermingled.

Curiously, there are totals records in the file which are wildly wrong. I’m very curious what else I can find.

Rather than spend a lot of time coding, I’m going to see what Easy Data Transform will do, either with the raw fixed length records or with excerpts I can write from the file in CSV or Excel format.

Ha. Maybe I should A/B test that as a tag line on the home page. ;0)

Thanks!
