That's good news :)

I have to admit that I knew it and that I've participated in selection process ;).
I choose you, Iwan and others that I remembered from last NetCAT or nbusers. I'm glad that you are in game and I'm looking forward for all your bugs and observations :)

Actually, I kind of suspected that you had something to do with it. I understand that there were quite a large interest from the community to participate, which is really good. How many participants will there be this time around?

There were more than 500 applicants in 24hours and then they stopped it ;) There were chhosen 150 participants then to participate in the program. So, the group is twice bigger => NetBeans 5.0 will be twice more quality :)

That's really cool! Must feel good for you guys to have such nice users to help you out. ;)

Now I just need to come up with something funny to do before the program starts. I generally prefer to start some new project, to get a feel for how the environment works during all stages of development. Any ideas for a nice little Mobility project?

Take care!

I got a few idea about simple apps that I'd like to have on my phone ;)

1. Connections - I use public transport every day and I hate when I have to wait on a stop. I created simple bus departures app but it was rather a preparation for next steps. Finally the app should be able to show you departures of an bus/tram from particullar bus stop, create new bus/tram line departures. That's an idea... There are Prague public transport connection on internet. The app could connect to internet but I prefer to have all neccessary data in phone. I plan to create it but I don't have enough time.

2. People IS - I usually forgot almost all information about people that I know. I'd like to keep these informations and remember them when I need... So simple app that is able to store notes about people - as date of birth, wife, girlfriend, name (it should be able to create a relationship connection between two people), place of stay, etc... It'd be perfect if the list of fields could be modified by an application user...

Any other idea?

Sweet, I'll see what I can hack together when NetCAT launches. :)
Thank you for the ideas

Hi,
I started working on that People IS app today, using the latest Q-builds of NB and the Mobility Pack. Couldn't wait for the Beta to be released... :)

Remember that I have to do this in my spare time, though, so I don't know how long it will take before it's finished. It seems my J2ME skills has degraded somewhat since I finished my computer science degree and started working in software QA, so I'm not quite as fast as I used to be... ;)

Regards,
Markus Svensson

I'd be nice if you'll try to use the new components - Splash Screen when app starts, WaitScreen when app does something on background (loading) and TableItem for displaying (it remembers me that I didn't try to work with the table programatically, rather don't try the table before beta it needs some improvements/fixies).

Any feedback about changes is welcomed - either here or on netcat (nbusers) mailing list

Posted by Lukas on September 22, 2005 at 04:17 AM CEST #

Of course I'll try to use an many of the new components as possible. I added a SplashScreen yesterday, and I'll continue working with the app tonight. I'll take your advice and not use the table stuff 'till the Beta comes out, though. ;)
I'll post any comments / suggestions / general feedback to the NetCAT list.
